Satyricon are one of the fastest growing black metal bands around, with good reason. They have delivered masterpiece upon masterpiece of albums (Nemesis Divina, Volcano etc), and now they emerge with this from the 7th circle.
Now Diabolical is a revolutionary black metal album, it differenciates quite a lot from normal black metal, and from their older albums, but in a very good way. The pace is slowed down, riffs made more whole - more like conventional guitaring rather than just background sound. The strongest parts of this album have to be the drumming and the vocals. The vocals sound raw, evil....incredible, the lyrics are meaningful (for example King: "Bloodshot eyes/metal skin....Serpants toungue/Dagger claw....Dragon wings/Crooked horns" I.e the devil), just like any black metal lyrics should be.
The fact that this album differenciates from original black metal may scare away more purist fans, however while it is slower paced and more emphasis on the music as opposed to full focus on the lyrical content as with most black metal bands, now diabolical still manages to retain the dark, evil essance that makes up black metal. Purists won't be disapointed.
Highlights include the pentagram burns, rite of our cross, the darkness shall be eternal and to the mountains.
I have had the priviledge of seeing satyricon in concert, and the quality of the music remains as good as ever, satyr's vocals do not waver at any point, and frost never ceases his incredible drumming.
Overall, i give this album 5 stars.
2002's Volcano spawned a song that almost proved to be their breakthrough. Fuel For Hatred took an arguably more commercial route through the ruinous metal world by blending the edges with deeper, more rock 'n' roll-based grooves and lyrics that were less introspective and put across with a gentler inflection. This new direction appears to have been agreed upon and followed wholeheartedly in Now, Diabolical. While veterans of their audience may turn their noses up at the first whiff of evolution in their sound, many others will be able to appreciate how their esoteric sound rises above and beyond the majority of the tripe that is understood as Heavy Metal.
There is an unsettling brutality merged with riffs that have an intangible, immediate nature. The title track, opening the record, is far from frantic but the sound invades your senses with a sense of unyielding impending violence that follows through the first half of the album. The constant languid nature of this record is thankfully peppered with the ghoulish explosion of 'The Rite Of Our Cross' and the epic, marauding 'To The Mountains' closing the album after sending shivers through your mind. It would be unwise to suggest that this band is at the pinnacle of their career because, acknowledging the complexity and superiority shown here, they are untouchable in their field right now.
With their sixth album, Satyr and Frost have created an album that follows a most unpredictable route.Read more ›
But has the music changed again? Well, yes and no. It surely reminds me of 'Volcano', no doubt about that. But it is also refreshing again. When Satyricon was really getting groovy on 'Volcano' I thought that had to be the climax, it could not have been done any better. Well Satyricon did everything they could and produced an album which is even better, with more groove, more aggression and more power.
I hear you all thinking. "More groove? Is it still black metal? " Yes, because despite the groove, Satyricon still is able to create a dark and sinister feeling.
The song 'K.I.N.G.'.... how shall I describe it? Awesome!!! It makes you want to bang your head off, scream 'till your tongue begins to burn, and drink beer 'till you fall face down on the ground. It has so much energy. I love it. The drums are simple and right in your face, the guitar riffs are razor sharp and Satyrs vocals give me this chill in my entire body.
And let's talk about the 3rd song. Well, I was talking about energy. Where the song 'K.I.N.G.' ends, 'The pentagram burns' takes over. Again the fantastic grooves, and even more threatening vocals. And what's that? Horns? Wow. You just have to hear it. It gives the music this extra touch.
Then there is 'A new enemy'. Damn, great drumming by Frost!Read more ›
