Satyricon - Reveal New Album Title, Artwork


Nearly three years in the making, Satyricon have announced that Deep Calleth Upon Deep, their highly anticipated ninth studio album, is set for release on 22nd September via Napalm Records. It was recorded in Oslo, Norway and Vancouver, Canada, during early 2017 and mixed together with Mike Fraser, who previously worked on Satyricon's Now, Diabolical. The band has shared the album's front cover, an obscure drawing from 1898 by the great Norwegian artist, Edvard Munch.



Deep Calleth Upon Deep cover


Frontman, Satyr, informs us: "Approaching this release, what I always kept in mind is that either this is the beginning of something new or it's gonna be my last record. If this is going to be the last, then it needs to be something special. If there are more records, then I'd better make sure that this is so different from the last one that it feels like a new beginning. I think it's really, really dark, very spiritual and filled with confidence and energy.

"Deep Calleth Upon Deep is a profound statement about the essence of Satyricon's music and the eternal value of art itself. The way that I see it is that for any art, be it Satyricon or any other form of art with substance, in order for you to be able to inhale and completely understand it, it will take a little bit of you as well. If you get it all after a couple of listens, you know that it probably won't stay with you. So the title is saying, 'From the depth of the people making this record to the depth of the listener…' If you want to take part in this journey, you should be prepared to dig deep down in the darkest corner of your soul with us."

Deep Calleth Upon Deep will be released in digital format, a CD digipak and gatefold vinyl options. Pre-orders will go live in August. The band is set to play a European run of dates in support of Deep Calleth Upon Deep. Check out the list below:

Lol Maybe it would be better. I don't think it has impact as an album cover.

Looks like they lost the original album cover they were going to use so they drew that on a napkin and went with it.

"an obscure drawing from 1898 by the great Norwegian artist, Edvard Munch."

No wonder it remained obscure. Probably Satyricon were the ones who rediscovered it.

Cover itself is fine, though it seems more suited to a demo/EP cover. My issue is the text conflicts with the image - they don't go together at all.

Well, considering Satyr's explanation, I'm assuming the skull is Satyricon and the face is the listener, so it technically makes sense. Not very inspiring though.

This cover >>> photoshop covers >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> massive turd >>> anything by Seth Siro


But who cares, music will probably still be average rock n' roll and harsh vocals, with a cracking tune or two. Business as usual.

Hahahahaha, true. No matter how bad it gets. It'll always be better than Seth's work.

So is Satyr basically saying that if you don't like the album you're simply not giving enough of yourself to it - you're not searching your soul properly? Because I searched my soul for the last album and came up massively short...
And that cover... oh man. I know Munch is well revered and all that, but it looks like a high school art class draft.
