SATYRICON are set to release a new 5-track EP entitled ‘My Skin Is Cold’ this coming Monday 2nd June.  (Review) The release is available digitally and also in sumptuous physical form, comprising a marbled 7” vinyl disc and a CD version packaged together in a glossy 7” gatefold sleeve.  Truly a thing of loveliness!


Satyricon black metal band pictureOffering the first taste of new Satyricon material in over two years, the new EP also includes two tracks – ‘Live Through Me’ and ‘Existential Fear-Questions’ – that were excluded from 2002’s ‘Volcano’ album because, according to Satyr, “they did not fit with the flow of the album, even though they are maybe even better than some of the songs that did make it on there”.  Closing with two extraordinary live tracks – ‘Mother North’ and ‘Repined Bastard Nation’ – recorded at Gjallahorn during the band’s triumphant show with musicians from the Norwegian Broadcasting Orchestra and the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra in November 2006, this is an essential collection of treasures from the Satyricon vault that should keep die-hard fans satisfied until the completion and release of the band’s forthcoming seventh full-length album which is due for release via Roadrunner on 3rd November.


“You could say that the new song is an indication of what the album will sound like, but it is not the whole story,” states Satyr.  “The new songs are coming out really big, really grand.  Some need time to crawl under your skin and others, they’ll strangle you from the first bar.  It’s not operatic or theatrical, but it comes across as huge.  It sounds like a journey.  It’s emotional, it’s atmospheric, it’s grand and it’s epic. It’s overwhelming.”


Meanwhile, Satyricon are currently rehearsing for the summer festival circuit in Europe, although it’ll be later in the year before we see them in the UK.  Stay tuned for more album and tour news as we have it.
