Norway's Satyricon have returned with a new recording that continues the black'n'roll style that was established and previous releases and this is a review of their 2017 album "Deep Calleth Upon The Deep" which was released by Napalm Records.
A very fast sound starts off the album along with some grim black metal screams a few seconds later while a great amount of melody can be heard in the riffing as well as all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the music has a very Nordic inspired atmosphere.
Atmospheric synths can also be heard in the background briefly while spoken word parts are also added into certain sections of the recording along with the solos and leads being done in a very distorted and melodic fashion and the music also incorporates a great amount of black'n'roll elements.
Some of the tracks are very long and epic in length while a couple of tracks also brings in a small amount of melodic chants and as the problem progresses a brief use of blast beats can be heard as well as a small amount of saxophones which are added onto one of the later songs and most of the songs focus more on a mid tempo style as well as having its fast moments.
Satyricon creates another recording that remains true to the black'n'roll style that has been established on previous releases, the production sounds very professional while the lyric s cover darkness and nature themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Satyricon and if you are a fan of their more recent style, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Midnight Serpent" "Deep Calleth Upon The Deep" "Dissonant" and "Burial Rite". 8 out of 10.
