Satyricon Go Soft on “Phoenix”
Satyricon have released a lyric video for another new song called “Phoenix” from their new self-titled album. Whereas the first song, “Our World, it Rumbles Tonight,” was more or less what you’d expect from Satyricon, “Phoenix” shows off a whole different side of the band; it’s practically unrecognizable as Satyricon! If there is such a thing as a black metal power ballad this song would surely qualify. Which isn’t to say I don’t like it — I very much do — but I imagine it’ll certainly piss off kvltists and all those inclined to keep their black metal pure, frosty and grim 100% of the time. Check it out:
Satyricon comes out on September 17th via Nuclear Blast.
