SATYRICON Unveil The Title Track From Forthcoming Opus, Deep calleth upon Deep!

When the moon rises and the shadows fall.....

SATYRICON have unveiled the title track from their forthcoming opus, Deep calleth upon Deep:

The album is set for release on 22nd Sept via Napalm Records and can be pre-ordered at http://smarturl.it/DCUD-NPR

Frontman and visionary Satyr tells us about “Deep calleth upon Deep”; “It was not easy to chose a song to represent this album, as they are all so different. I consider them all to be a group of individuals with strong and unique personalities and together they make the album Deep calleth upon Deep. The title track is the only song we’ve done with baritone and regular guitar all the way through the song. I felt it was needed for the tonal depth I was looking for and to enhance the swing of the groove in the heavier parts. It also has mellotron, cello, violin and backing vocals by classical singer Håkon Kornstad, where the cello supports the baritone guitar and the mellotron, and the violin and the backing vocals provide air and width to the sound. Consider it a journey. Play it loud, close your eyes and head into the forest. That’s what I do.”

Recorded in Oslo, Norway and Vancouver, Canada, during early 2017 and mixed together with revered studio guru Mike Fraser (who previously worked on SATYRICON’s 2006 album, Now, Diabolical), Deep calleth upon Deep is not just a new collection of songs from one of extreme music’s most enduring and reliable bands: this is a wholesale reinvention and a brand new era in SATYRICON history.
The band also recently unveiled the album’s sleeve artwork, an obscure drawing from 1898 by perhaps the greatest Norwegian artist of all time, Edvard Munch (you can gaze at its splendour below).
SATYRICON’s evocative live performances are increasingly becoming special events as their frequency is dialled back to accommodate the Oslo band’s new ‘modus operandi’. In support of Deep calleth upon Deep, the band is set to play a one-off London show at Heaven on 29th September. Tickets are on sale now at http://www.seetickets.com/event/satyricon/heaven/1080854.
