Satyricon has announced a release date for their ninth studio album. Deep Calleth Upon Deep, will be released on September 22nd. At what could be a risk, front man Satyr said of the new record,
‘Approaching this release, what I always kept in mind is that either this is the beginning of something new or it’s gonna be my last record. If this is going to be the last, then it needs to be something special. If there are more records, then I’d better make sure that this is so different from the last one that it feels like a new beginning. I think it’s really, really dark, very spiritual and filled with confidence and energy.’
Satyr further goes on to explain the title of the record such that the experience will depend on the listener’s ability to digest the material,
‘From the depth of the people making this record to the depth of the listener… If you want to take part in this journey, you should be prepared to dig deep down in the darkest corner of your soul with us.’
Pretty heavy stuff from a very atmospheric band.
