When DOWN was in the UK earlier this year, Roadrunner Records spoke with singer Philip Anselmo (ex-PANTERA) about Norwegian black metallers SATYRICON. Check out what he had to say at this location.

In April and May of 2000, SATYRICON toured as a support band for PANTERA. Anselmo has spoken of his love for black metal numerous times and has participated in several extreme metal projects with SATYRICON frontman Satyr.

"The Age Of Nero", the new album from SATYRICON, entered the national chart in the band's home country at position No. 5. This is SATYRICON's lowest chart entry in Norway since "Rebel Extravaganza", which landed at No. 32 in 1999. "Volcano" (2002) entered the chart at No. 4, while 2006's "Now, Diabolical" came in at No. 2.

SATYRICON's Norwegian record label, Indie Recordings, is still confident that it will be able to push the "Age Of Nero" sales past the 15,000 mark, thus securing SATYRICON its first gold record ever.

SATYRICON has inked a deal with Koch Records for the North American release of "The Age Of Nero". The CD is tentatively due in the U.S. in January in time for the group's tour with CRADLE OF FILTH.
