Extreme metal icons, SATYRICON have always pushed boundaries and never conformed to what was ‘expected’. That mindset continues to this day, as they are thrilled to announce a very special, exclusive show at Oslo Opera House on 8th September 2013, where they will perform together with Norway’s 55-strong National Opera Chorus.
The special event is part of the Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival, and fans of both SATYRICON and the National Opera Chorus can look forward to a very unique and exciting evening, which coincides with the worldwide release of SATYRICON’s ninth studio album which can now be confirmed to be self-titled.
SATYRICON’s leader and visionary, Satyr comments: “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 Chorus and SATYRICON. We are also excited to have a couple of special musical friends come and play their part as well. Ladies and gentlemen – welcome!”
The Opera Chorus’ lead conductor, David Maiwald adds: “Mixing different musical expressions is always exciting. When the internationally acclaimed black metal band SATYRICON meets the voluminous voices of the Norwegian National Opera Chorus, we expect a powerful and monumental result, rich in innovative surprises.”
