Satyricon is working on the follow-up to their 2017 album Deep Calleth Upon Deep to be out sometime in 2022. According to vocalist Sigurd "Satyr" Wongraven, the new album will not feature "instrumentation you are used to hearing" and is "not a collection of songs." So are we looking at an orchestral-only Satyricon album? Maybe a much folkier one?
"Snorre Ruch and have been sparring musically for over twenty years with Thorns and @satyriconofficial," said Wongraven on Instagram.
"This project is the new Satyricon album that I’m working on which is close to a musical work in its approach. It is not a collection of songs and it does not have the instrumentation you are used to hearing. Black Metal has unlimited forms of expression as long as it has the feeling that is unique to real Black Metal. You’ll like this and I look forward to sharing it with you in about one year from now.
