SATYRICON To Enter Studio In October

Norwegian black metallers SATYRICON have posted the following message on their official web site:

"Sorry for not keeping touch lately, but we've been busy working! We are in middle of pre-production for our new album and we will start recording October 17th in Puk Studio in Denmark where we did most of 'Volcano'. We aim to finish the album in January followed by a late spring release. This means we should be ready to do a big festival run throughout the summer and hit the clubs in the fall. Things change and they can change fast too in this industry, but this is what we plan to do as it looks now. We'll keep you posted about this and other projects we are working on too, throughout the fall."

SATYRICON's North American tour was cut short last December after guitarists Steinar Gundersen and Arnt Gronbech were charged with giving a fan a date-rape drug and sexually assaulting her in a tour bus following a Dec. 15, 2004 concert in Toronto.

SATYRICON were about two-thirds through a North American "Return of the Antichrist Tour" in support of the U.S. release of their 2002 CD "Volcano", a chart-topping, award-winning album in Norway. It has been released in North America on the EatURmusic imprint headed up by SYSTEM OF A DOWN guitarist Daron Malakian and distributed by Columbia, a division of Sony Music.
