On September 8, Satyricon played a show with the Norwegian National Opera backing them up at the Den Norske Opera and Ballett in Oslo, Norway. A national opera backing up a death metal group, there's no way this can be less than awesome… right? Right.
You can watch all the footage of the event below. Some are of way better quality than others, but by and large they all sound good enough that you can hear everything that's going on. I've never been a huge fan of these guys, but they seem like they put on a killer live show! Sigurd "Satyr" Wongraven had to say this about the event:
"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."
Hell, you gotta at least respect these guys. Nicholas Cage does.
