Satyricon

Profile:
A black metal band from Oslo, Norway, founded in 1991.

Initially formed as a death metal band Eczema in 1990 by bassist Wargod and drummer Exhurtum (Carl-Michael Eide), who were joined by Lemarchand (Håvard Jørgensen) on guitar. In 1991 they started to play black metal and renamed the band to Satyricon. At this point also Satyr (Sigurd Wongraven) joined the band. Satyr quickly became the driving force of the band and the other members soon quit or were kicked out. In 1993 drummer Frost (Kjetil-Vidar Haraldstad) joined the band and without couple exceptions Satyricon has been very much a two-man force ever since. The core duo has however utilised various session musicians throughout the years for live situations and also for album writing purposes.

Satyricon's early works were strongly characterised by the use of folk music influences and medieval stylistics and "Nemesis Divina" can well be considered as the peak of this era and style. After this there was a clear change in the band's musical direction and overall sound as the 1999's "Rebel Extravaganza" saw the band dropping the folk elements and striving for more guitar driven and dissonant sound and generally more contemporary imagery. Since then Satyricon has been pushing the boundaries of traditional Norse black metal, not only by incorporating more heavy metal/rock elements into music, but also by becoming generally a more mainstream media figure in Norway. On their most recent releases the band has found its musical niche in their unique style of blackened heavy metal, which rely heavily on guitar riffs and often complex timings rather than keyboard laden atmospherics.

In October 2015 Satyr was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which forced the band for a short break. Satyricon returned in February 2016 by performing a "Nemesis Divina" 20th anniversary show in Oslo. The album was also remastered and re-released later in the spring and was followed by selected anniversary shows on European festivals.
