Only one duo is able to evoke sinister settings like the world of bleak woods lurking behind Norwegian wafts of mist. That duo is SATYRICON. Formed in Oslo in 1991, SATYRICON made an immediate and enduring impact when they emerged from the flourishing Norwegian black metal scene. With their ninth opus "Deep calleth upon Deep, the masters Satyr and Frost properly dispense the darkest art of metal. The album oozes with sorrow, as black metal hymns drag shake the soul and the skeleton like hyenas feasting on a rotten carcass. The resulting album is erratic and destructive, in addition to being raw and pure. It plows. It's progressive. It mounts an unapologetic sonic attack.
