SATYRICON Video Posted Online

Norway's SATYRICON has made available for streaming the video for the track "Fuel For Hatred" from the group's current "Volcano" opus at this location. The clip was directed by acclaimed Swedish director Jonas Åkerlund, who has previously worked with METALLICA, MADONNA, and THE PRODIGY, among others.

In other news, SATYRICON has posted the following tour update via its official web site at www.satyricon.no:

"Lund was boring. With only 25% of the crowd willing to contribute to having a good time it is bound to be difficult. We can only act as professionals and do our job, but it will never be fun. Copenhagen was alright, but it was quite apparent that the club Vega did not want us to be there. They didn't give a fuck about our rider, they wouldn't let us use pyro (even though they have before) and they clearly had not done any promo for the show. The show in itself was still cool to do. The string guys ended up on a strip bar after the show with a black woman that was so tall that she had to bend down in order to avoid banging her head into the ceiling... Voxhall in Århus was a nice venue and their attitude was much better than the one we faced in Copenhagen. It was altogether a much better place to be. A lot of people came out to the show and the crowd was heavily into it! This show was more like a battle than a concert. There were 10-12 people who clearly were so high and drunk that they did not know what was going on. There were no barricades so the crowd was way too close to the stage, pushing our monitors back, braking bottles on them, cutting themselves, fighting and some loser even sprayed pepper gas much to the discomfort of the band and the mosh pit. You will suffer big time if we ever find you. Our stage-tech and the guards certainly gave a lot of tough punishment that night. A good show, but chaos to the core. In Gothenburg we had time to cruise around a little bit and it is a nice little city. The show itself was very much like Lund. Is it only Stockholm that is capable to rock in Sweden? Hamar was a true blast! We really looked forward to coming back home to a sold out show and to an audience we KNEW was going to be fired up. We brought in the lady that we used in the cross scene in Oslo for a small appearance during 'Blessed From Below' and we used as much pyro as we could on such a small stage. The people in Hamar completely understood what it takes to make a good show and the band had a great time. In a moment of blackout Satyr dived into the mosh pit which created total mayhem of course. The drawback was when the guards were going to help him over the barricades which resulted in his hip bone hitting the barricades with ultimate force! He finished the show without problems, but was soaked in ice after the show to ease the pain. The bus took us to Oslo airport straight after the show as we had to catch a flight to Poland to co-headline the Mystic festival with KREATOR. Getting out of the bunker after one hour sleep was tough...In Satyr's case the crushed hip bone and a bad cold made it seem hopeless, but we decided to go anyway and to get some medicine and painkillers in Poland so that he could do the show. It was a worthy ending of a very successful tour. Everything went well despite the pain and so on and clearly the crowd was very pleased! Satyr and some crew members went back to the hotel and nurtured their fucked up bodies while the rest went out to celebrate A.O Gronbech's birthday and the final day of the tour. Approximately 1/3 of the shows were sold out, the band did well, the crew helped us shine and most of the audiences were energetic and passionate. Thank you for coming out, we'll see you again. This was good!"
