3.5 greatRugter32 | March 2nd 09

Repetitive riffs, some quite good drumming, some grooves here and there, HEAVY PARTS BRO.... Yeah, there are. Good vocals? Uh-oh... Satyr sounds pathetic in this album, actually. He doesn't use a totally clean voice, but neither does he screech: He is somewhere in the middle. Effective? Sadly, no. He sounds like he's gonna break apart in any moment, and he gets annoying. The album musically is kinda repetitive and slow, can get boring at times. But that doesn't stop it from being enjoyable. The evil feeling throughout is cool, though if you want evilness, there are better than this. This is just a fun black & roll album (Oh, sweet irony).

Bump

3.5 greatThe Flabbit Rides High | November 5th 08

Satyricon are back with a more refined black & roll style. More cohesive than Now, Diabolical, but not as exciting as Volcano. The Wolfpack is the most pop I've heard Satyricon since The Pentagram Burns and Fuel For Hatred, but it works.
The insanely catchy grooves and rhythms will have you bouncing up and down as The Sign of The Trident and Black Crow On A Tombstone play out, and the ending of Den Siste is vaguely familiar to an age when Satyricon released Shadowthrone.
Subtle synth sounds and noises once again make the experience more eerie and unsettling, but if you want scary black metal, bad news im afraid...this one is more "cool" metal than "krieg".
Overall a competent album from the black and roll kings to keep you interested and coming back for more, but don't expect a huge shift in the sound department.
