Satyricon - Live At The Opera (2015)
Satyricon is a Norwegian black metal band, formed in 1991 in Oslo. Satyr and Frost have been the band's core members since 1993. The band's
first three albums typify the Norwegian black metal style. Since its
fourth album in 1999, the band has strayed from this style and included
elements of hard rock in their sound. Satyricon was the first Norwegian
black metal band to join a multi-national record label (EMI).
The band were formed in 1990 as Eczema by the bassist Wargod and drummer
Exhurtum. In 1991, they decided to start playing black metal, so the
name was changed to Satyricon. Satyr (Sigurd Wongraven) then joined the
band. After the first demo All Evil, Exhurtum was kicked out of the band
because he "preferred hanging out with my girl at the time rather than
kicking down gravestones together with the band", while Wargod left the
music scene and became a UN soldier afterwards. Lemarchand was kicked
out after the second demo. Remaining members Satyr and Lemarchand hired
the drummer Frost (Kjetil-Vidar Haraldstad) as a session musician and
recorded their second and last demo, The Forest Is My Throne. Shortly
after this, Lemarchand also left the band. But before leaving the band
he recorded guitars (uncredited on the booklet) for the first
full-length album, Dark Medieval Times. In the meantime, Frost was being
"promoted" as a permanent member and had recorded drums for the
aforementioned album. Satyricon have—with two exceptions—been a two-man
band ever since: from 1993–1996, Tomas Thormodsæter 'Samoth' Haugen from
Emperor was the bassist and guitarist of Satyricon, and participated in
the recording of their second album, The Shadowthrone; and later, in
1996, Darkthrone member Nocturno Culto (Ted Skjellum, known as
"Kveldulv" during Satyricon's period) became guitarist on the third
full-length Satyricon album, Nemesis Divina.
Rebel Extravaganza, Satyricon's fourth album, was released in 1999.
During this period Satyr drastically changed his look by shaving off his
hair, as seen in the photoshoot for the album as well as their live
In April and May 2000, Satyricon toured as a supporting band for
Pantera. Phil Anselmo has spoken of his love for black metal numerous
times, and has participated in Eibon with Satyricon frontman Satyr.They
used to be signed with Daron Malakian's music label EatUrMusic.
Their fifth studio album Volcano was released in 2002 and won four
awards: the Norwegian Grammy for Best Metal Album, an Alarm award for
the track "Fuel for Hatred" in the category Song of the Year, the Alarm
Award for Metal Album of the Year and The Oslo award for Best Overall
Satyricon participated in the Darkthrone tribute Darkthrone Holy
Darkthrone, released by Moonfog Productions in 1998, covering the song
"Kathaarian Life Code". In the same year, Satyricon participated in the
Bathory tribute In Conspiracy with Satan, released by Hellspawn/No
Fashion Records, featuring the song "Born for Burning" originally
released on Crusade from the North in 1996.
