Satyricon – Die By My Hand – Exclusive preview from “Live at the Opera”
The 8th of September 2013 was a historic night in the lifetime of Satyricon. The sound of the National Norwegian Opera chorus and Satyricon created an intense atmosphere. We have worked hard to get everything that happened to sound and look as amazing as it felt in real life. This is an exclusive preview from the new album and DVD, “Live At The Opera”, coming in April 2015. Unmastered version that is. Enjoy.
The Dawn Of A New Age European tour!
Satyricon proudly presents «The Dawn Of A New Age 2015», European tour.
Satyricon World Europa 2013 supporting the release of their self-titled record, was a massive success with the band securing a record amount of sold out shows on their European tour.
The upcoming «The Dawn Of A New Age Tour 2015» celebrates the release of «Satyricon – Live At The Opera». «Satyricon – Live At The Opera» was recorded and filmed at the Norwegian National Opera performing with the Norwegian National Opera chorus and will be released as a double CD/DVD box set and on vinyl. It is scheduled for a March 2015 release. Satyricon did not tour Europe in 2014 and this tour will be the only tour the band will do in Europe in 2015.
«I want to do this tour to complete the circle on the album «Satyricon», I want to get behind the «Live At The Opera» album which is as far away from a conventional live album as you can get, and I want to share that experience with our fans in our «hometown», Europe. «Live At The Opera» came out brilliant and while this is now on its way out, we are actually working on two more records alongside each other. «The Dawn Of A New Age 2015» is a great arena for us to do shows out of the ordinary. We plan on playing songs that we never play live, we plan on doing live jam sessions and we want this to be a special tour. Not just a tour supporting the release of an album. We don’t tour as much as we used to and we like it that way. We spend a lot of time in our studio these days and music has never felt so good. In 2015 you will get to see the beginning of the new Satyricon which is a band that is waving goodbye to the pre-set formulas of the music industry. You can’t vote on songs for us to play, there won’t be any lame sponsors, but if you play an instrument particularly well, get in touch with us and come jam with us on stage or you can enjoy watching. This tour is to celebrate our relationship with our fans.
I think this has the potential of being our best tour ever and I know it’s going to be absolutely fantastic», states Satyr.

Satyricon ‘Satyricon’ reaches #1 on the Norwegian National Album Charts! Official press release…
Oslo, Sept. 20, 2013
Satyricon’s highly anticipated ‘self-titled’ new studio album debuted this week at #1 on the official Norwegian Album Charts which is the extreme metallers highest chart position to date. ‘Satyricon’ has also seen success internationally, debuting at #6 in Finland, #23 in Germany and #26 in Austria among many other chart entries worldwide. By comparison, Satyricon’s previous 2008 studio album “The Age of Nero” debuted at #5 in the Norwegian charts and #73 in Germany.
In addition to this commercial success, Satyricon continues to receive widespread critical praise. Metal Hammer UK asserts, “…The Norwegians are still gaining strength as they once again redefine once again what it means to harness the power of darkness,” while Q Magazine describes it as “defiantly original, Satyricon remains as impressive as ever.”
Front-man Satyr comments: “Satyricon fans have shown that there is still room for authentic music with an analog sound. They have shown it to the degree that it has given us formidable chart positions in very competitive European markets and in Norway a number 1 record. It is the most important record that we have done and now our fans are clearly sending out a very strong message by getting behind it. We are very thankful and proud.”
‘Satyricon’ was recorded in Norway between January and May 2013 and was produced by Satyr. Mixing took place in Seattle by Adam Kasper & Satyr.
Satyricon are currently on a highly successful tour in their homeland Norway and are soon set to embark on a tour through the Russian Federation and Europe.
Satyricon ‘Satyricon’ is out now on Indie Records in Norway, Nuclear Blast in North America and Roadrunner Records for R.O.W.
