Robert Williams of Metal-Rules.com conducted an interview with vocalist Sigurd "Satyr" Wongraven of Norwegian black metallers SATYRICON after the band's October 3, 2009 performance in San Antonio, Texas. Watch the chat below.Satyr recently told AOL's Noisecreep that the group plans to halt all road activities after its current North American tour. "We started touring and haven't stopped," he said. "We did Japan and Australia, then the U.S. Then we did an extensive of the Nordic countries and had a few weeks off and then went right into festival season, which ran from May through September. "We've been off for a week and we're going back on tour for a month. November is off, with only one show, so it'll be quiet. Christmas will be it for quite some time. It'll take something special for us to go out in 2010. We need a break, since we've been going for a long time. We feel motivated to do a full headline tour of the States right now." SATYRICON released a special-edition, two-CD version of its critically acclaimed latest album, "The Age Of Nero", on September 29 via E1 Music (formerly KOCH Records). The bonus material on this special "The Age Of Nero" package has never been available in North America before. Featuring eight live and rare recordings, this set is a must-have for SATYRICON fans. SATYRICON will take part in a signing session at Scrape Records in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada on Wednesday, October 14 from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, visit www.scraperecords.com.
