SATYRICON: “Live At The Opera” Due In April

Saturday, 17th January 2015

To coincide with the release of their self-titled, eighth studio album, Norwegian black metallers SATYRICON played a very special, exclusive show on September 8, 2013 at at Den Norske Opera & Ballett in Oslo, Norway, where they were joined by the 55-strong Norwegian National Opera Chorus as part of the Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival. The performance was professionally filmed and recorded and will be released as the Live At The Opera CD/DVD in April.

There will be many editions with exclusive packaging and artwork, but the main cover can be seen below. Also available is a preview clip of the song “Die By My Hand.”

Commented SATYRICON frontman Sigurd “Satyr” Wongraven: “SATYRICON excels as a band, the bigger the platform is. In Norway, there is no greater stage than the main hall of our new Opera House. There is nowhere better suited to provide the dynamics, power and authenticity to such an occasion than the Opera Choir and SATYRICON. To us, there is no better way to celebrate with our fans that we are back with our first album in five years.”

The band’s self-titled album was released in September 2013 via Nuclear Blast.
