SATYRICON's Forthcoming Covers Album May Include Version Of DEAD KENNEDYS' 'Holiday In Cambodia'

Drummer Kjetil-Vidar "Frost" Haraldstad of Norwegian black metallers SATYRICON has confirmed that the band is working on a covers album, to be recorded later in the year. He told Sweden's RockSverige.se: "I can't really say that much about it; we've chosen half of the songs that will be on it, but we're a bit unsure about the rest. We have chosen songs we find exciting."

He continued: "It's not very exciting to record a bunch of VENOM and BATHORY covers, because there are several extreme metal bands that have already done that.

"We have chosen songs that take us places, but it's also songs that have had a meaning to us as people or musicians in one way or another."

Frost added: "We've played DEAD KENNEDYS' 'Holiday In Cambodia' live on [the current SATYRICON European] tour, so it might end up on the album, but we'll see when it happens. It's more exciting that way."

As previously reported, SATYRICON has signed a worldwide deal with Austrian label Napalm Records for release of the band's new DVD, "Live At The Opera".

To coincide with the release of its self-titled, eighth studio album, SATYRICON played a very special, exclusive show on September 8, 2013 at at Den Norske Opera & Ballett in Oslo, Norway, where they were joined by the 55-strong Norwegian National Opera Chorus as part of the Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival. The performance was professionally filmed and recorded and will be released as the "Live At The Opera" CD/DVD on May 5 in North America.
