Black double vinyl in a lush gatefold.

Norwegian black metal vinyl holy grail reissued at last!

Only eight months separate the creation of Dark Medieval Times and its successor, The Shadowthrone. But the second SATYRICON album showcased a huge evolutionary leap for its creators. This act of consolidation and refinement has now been remastered and will be reissued with an altered artwork on gatefold vinyl and digipak CD format via Napalm Records. On The Shadowthrone, Satyr truly blossomed as a composer of artful extremity. Even in sonic terms, it stood apart from both tradition and trend, deftly encompassing both primitive, earthbound grit and a suffocating sense of otherworldly vastness. Propelled forward at an infernal pace by the increasingly masterful drumming of Frost and graced with a cameo contribution from Emperor’s Samoth, The Shadowthrone struck the perfect, hellish chord at the exact right moment in time.
