SATYRICON To Begin Recording New Album This Summer

January 24, 2005

Vocalist Satyr of the Norwegian black metallers SATYRICON has posted the following message on the band's web site:

"I just returned from a week-long stay at a cabin far up in the mountains with my good friend Snorre from THORNS. We set up recording equipment and worked very focused with our new albums.

"I'm co-producing the new THORNS album and I also put a great deal of work into the new SATYRICON record during our stay. The material is coming along really great and I hope to enter the studio with [drummer] Frost late summer."

In other news, SATYRICON will play their first London show in two years at the Fabric on March 3. More information will be made available later this week.

As previously reported, SATYRICON guitarists Steinar Gundersen and Arnt Gronbech, who are charged with giving a fan a date-rape drug and sexually assaulting her in a tour bus following a Dec. 15 concert in Toronto, were released from Canadian jail late last month on bail of CAD $50,000 each (approx. $41,000).

The two guitarists, who are session/touring musicians and not full-time members of the band, are now back in Norway but have to return to Canada for a court hearing.
