REVIEW: Satyricon – ‘Deep Calleth Upon Deep’

“This is a new beginning, a new chapter. The rules of the game have changed.”

And with the Norwegian duo’s ninth album, “Deep calleth upon Deep,” they open the subsequent gate to hell, stripping its black metal majesty down to a dark and simplistic form.

Satyr and Frost had been heading down this dark path for some time now, but like they stated above, this indeed could be a game changer. It’s like black metal ‘n roll in the way that Entombed’s “Wolverine Blues” reinvented death metal, and close to the mastery of Behemoth’s “The Satanist.”

But much like the above mentioned bands, if you liked Satyricon before, you’ll love the shit out of this album, and if you haven’t, then pay the ferryman and cross over into the underworld of “Deep calleth upon Deep.”

Standout tracks: “Blood Cracks Open the Ground,” “To Your Brethren In the Dark,” “Deep calleth upon Deep,” “Black Wings and Withering Gloom”


Released September 22, 2017, Napalm Records
