Hello! Does anyone know if this version of the album actually exists? There have been 7 copies listed for sale over the last month or so but after asking the sellers to confirm that they were indeed the Cargo CG64539LP version (rather than the Roadrunner, Indie or Nuclear Blast) all 7 have been removed from sale and relisted as another version... this and the lack of pictures in the listing leads me to the suspicion that it doesn't exist. Thanks :oD

How "Limited" is this (black edition)?
I mean, one shouldn't state "Limited Edition" if there are more than 500, in my opinion.

The best album after their first 3 albums. Do not expect this album to be black metal style like the good old days. This album is different. It reflects maturity and, to me, this is a good landing for a once black metal god.

Hail.

I actually really like this LP. Got the standard black one because I prefer black vinyl generally, but I thought the use of melodies was pretty... challenging, in a way, especially given their fanbase. A very mature, and very well-thought-out record. Yes, the coloured vinyl gimmick is a bit silly, but the music itself is excellent.

I realy can't hear those whining opinions/reviews anymore.
I was a fan of the albums 1 to 3 and I'm still a fan of these tunes.
In fact I stopped listening to them after Nemesis Divina. Within the years I checked a few songs of every new album but wasn't really impressed.

I think its hell important for a band to grow up within the years. I'm happy they did! I'M not a 16 year old black metal kid anymore and I'm very happy with the result of the new album. Its the very first album that I bought since Nemesis Divina and I'm very happy with the purchase. The whole colored vinyl massacre is a mess, but after all, who cares when you get such fine songs!

Dark Medieval Times & The Shadowthrone are milestones in the genre and Satyricon did enough for this (!) scene. Lets be fair and let them find their own style, whatever it may sound like.
I like the new stuff a lot!

Satyricon have always travelled a more blackened heavy metal road ever since Nemesis Divina; the new album, Satyricon, directs itself on another tangent entirely. The album is book-ended by two quite unremarkable, meandering instrumentals, which feel like padding. They don't appear to add any atmosphere, as an intro / outro should do. The majority of the songs on this album are stuck firmly in a low gear and are evidence that the band are no longer interested in any kind of blackened metal. Indeed, the material present is firmly progressive in feel, but badly executed. The sound hovers between latter day Opeth style harmonies and My Dying Bride-esque doomy riffs; this mix in the hands of expert musicians like Satyr and Frost should have sounded amazing, but comes across as lazy and non-aggressive, lacking any semblance of the drive needed to pull it off. In fact, the album itself is lacking a general direction, as is evidenced by the mix of songs. The biggest problem on the album is Phoenix, as a guest vocalist has been used to provide clean vocals and the rhythm is more goth than metal; it feels like it's on the wrong album entirely. Walker Upon the Wind suddenly ups the pace, being the fastest song on the album, but, with its retro sound, it also feels out of place. The same can be said of Nekrohaven, with its industrial vocals and nu-goth punk rhythm. I did notice hints of the 'old' Satyricon sound throughout the album, but these weren't enough to save it.

Satyricon appears directionless, seemingly containing ideas that Satyr and Frost have penned, but have not really thought through enough. The production is annoyingly clean and polished, dispensing with any sense of the organic and replacing it with the mechanical. Satyr has mentioned in interviews that this is the new direction the band will be following. I just hope he manages to work out just what direction that is.

Ultra crap album, not even worth the original €24.99 price asked by Nuclear Blast on pre-order.

The multi color vinyl show is starting to get boring. I'm getting myself not caring for Relapse records releases anymore, after the typical CLEAR vinyl press exclusive for friends and employes bs .
Pretty soon gonna get tired of NB multi press every week until pre-date.
Looks like labels did not learnt from mistakes made in early 2000 and now decide to push releases revenues with this vinyl multi color crap.

It amazes me when I look at people who review various cd's ,that it seems that there's always a reference or implied reference to "the past" and records and such that an artist previously released.Why? Am I the only person who does not bother to compare releases from one year to the next?What is the point? Each album that a particular artist releases is for this time, not yesterday and not tomorrow.
And as usual I don't think this is any more noticeable then the good old Black Metal "scene".People who continue to Buy,download(illegally or otherwise),or get for free LP's/CD's of artists they KNOW they will not like is beyond absurd and a contradiction:of course you will have nothing positive to say!For example,I would not accept a Lady Gaga release for free or otherwise, because I will not like it.

Now, as for this new Satyricon release,it's not there best work, No. However it does continue to push,and that's what Satyricon have always promised. Satyricon will push the metal boundaries,the "Black n'Roll" boundaries,and anyone who does not realize or accept that should really spend there time and ,presumably money, where they believe will be happier.The production is excellent.While tracks like "Tro Og Kraft" evoke memories of times from " the Shadowthrone" for example ,while "Nocturnal Flare" and "The Infinity of Time and Space" provide that raw and melancholic atmosphere that few acts can truly generate successfully as Satyricon does, these latter two songs will probably become live favorites in the not too distant future.The big gamble is "Phoenix" sung clean vocals by a Norwegian rock artist,with only a hint of Satyr Wongraven's vocals somewhere in the background.A big surprise but I am not too sure how positive this track maybe,even to me who seems to think it's my right to shit on other peoples opinions?No, I just don't understand why anyone would bother,wouldn't you rather review an LP/CD that you actually like?Again people are entitled to there thoughts sure, I just don't know why you want to bother wasting time and energy on it, I sure as hell don't!

Listening to this album repeatedly defiantly helps, spending money, or downloading or accepting even as a gift or promo the work of an act or band you clearly do not like and then write a pointless review is utterly moronic,ridiculous and does not make you "true" nor "kvult" unless you mean a "true" or "kvlt" tosser!Acts like Satyricon helped create "True Norwegian Black Metal" etc. and they can destroy there own creations if that's how you see it.
Again perhaps not Satyricon's best work, but it's better then 95% of the uninspired, boring, repetitive and contrived crap that comes out there days,where band XX or artist YY just follow the same old path set out before them.
