Norwegian black metallers SATYRICON have posted the following message on their official web site:
"Saturday the 8th of July, SATYRICON will do one of its most 'exotic' shows in a 14-year-long career playing the the commune of Træna, 33 nautical miles from mainland Norway. It consists of over 1,000 small islands and such, and is only inhabited by a little over 400 people. Every year the festival is visited by 2,000 people and this number of tickets is a limit set in advance as the organizers want an intimate festival. This is will be the only SATYRICON show north of Hamar this summer."
According to MTV.com, SATYRICON will reissue their 1999 album, "Rebel Extravaganza", July 25. The record will be remixed and feature three bonus tracks: "Nemesis Divina (Clean Version Mix)" and "Blessed From Below (Melancholy Oppression Longing)", as well as a cover of SARCOFAGO's "I.N.R.I."
Sony Music in Norway has revealed that "The Pentagram Burns" will be launched this summer as the second SATYRICON single taken from the "Now, Diabolical" album.
"Now, Diabolical" debuted at No. 2 on the national Norwegian charts and also charted in Sweden and Finland. The album's first single, "K.I.N.G.", released in April, hit the Norwegian singles charts at No. 7.
"Now, Diabolical" is the follow-up to 2002's "Volcano", which received the Norwegian Grammy for "Best Metal Album", the Alarm Award for "Song Of The Year" (for track "Fuel For Hatred") plus "Metal Album Of The Year", and also the Oslo Award for "Best Overall Album". "Volcano" debuted at No. 4 on the Norwegian national album chart.
