About the Satyricon gig, too bad they only performed Stellar Master Elite and World Playground Deceit (the only songs I payed any real attention too). My underwear would have gotten wet if they had performed Vortex. Now we have to wait only 5 or 6 years for the album. So it should be released in a heartbeat.
THORNS/SNORRE RUCH TO PLAY LIVE!
From Satyricon's Facebook page:
"Rockefeller 21st of March!
More and more guests are getting onboard for this special night and check this out: Snorre Ruch/S.W Krupp/Blackthorn, the mastermind of many names, shapes and forms is coming to play Thorns with us!
The cult act Thorns is one of Black Metal's first and most inspirational band, influencing bands like Mayhem, Darkthrone, Emperor, Burzum and so on. Satyr has worked closely with Thorns' music, and Mr Ruch worked closely with Satyricon on Now, Diabolical and The Age Of Nero. Together we will perform classic songs from the album Thorns that Satyr co-produced and did vocals on. Thorns do not play live, so this is the first time these song will be performed live with one of Norwegian Black Metal's most influential artists on stage for this exclusive. "
"So the new album is in the mix, it has passed many stages first time i heard its preproduction in 2007 , last summer i heard a rough mix of the actual album and now its starting to get mixed. Snorre moved so he had to rebuild his studio thats why its delayed, to me it sounded more organic than the debut and some riffs closer to the De Mysteriis album."
