SATYRICON - Rebel Extravaganza 2LP
It was the dawn of a new millennium – and even more so for black metal pioneers Satyricon – who were poised for possibly the most groundbreaking evolution in their career. After the release of genre milestone, Nemsis Divina (1996), Satyr and Frost retreated for three years, only to return in the fall of 1999 in absolutely mindbending shape. Rebel Extravaganza proved to be more than aptly titled and tore down any and all genre boundaries with progressive ten-minute opener ‘Tied in Bronze Chains‘. Backed by stunning guest appearances by genre luminaries like Fenriz (Darkthrone) and Snorre Ruch (Thorns), the Norwegians unleashed a revolutionary and experimental masterpiece that combined frantic black metal with industrial elements, prog, synthesizers and mind-boggling time signatures. The album became the main inspiration for a myriad of upcoming experimental black metal acts and the birth of a new Satyricon era. In time for the 20th anniversary of this groundbreaking release, the album has been remastered and will be reissued by Napalm Records in digipak CD format and on gatefold vinyl.
