A brand new track from Norwegian black metallers SATYRICON, entitled "K.I.N.G", has been made available for download at this location. The song comes off the group's upcoming album, "Now, Diabolical", due in Europe on April 24 (via Sony/BMG in Norway and Roadrunner Records in the rest of the continent) and the U.S. on June 13 via Century Media Records.
"Now, Diabolical" was mixed in Vancouver, Canada with Mike Fraser (METALLICA, AC/DC) and is described by SATYRICON mainman Satyr as "a deeper dive in the abyss than ever before. [The album] is a catchy and aggressive record with a pitch-black heart. I think this is the kind of record that we and our supporters in America need to help steer the direction that no one has really set yet 'over there.' America has produced some of the greatest metal bands of all time, yet black metal has very much been a European phenomena until now. It is gradually tightening its grip on the American metal scene and we want to be a part of it just like we were when it started in Europe."
"Now, Diabolical" track listing:
01. Now, Diabolical
03. The Pentagram Burns
04. A New Enemy
05. The Rite Of Our Cross
06. That Darkness Shall Be Eternal
08. To The Mountains
The vinyl version of the album will include a bonus track called "Storm (of the Destroyer)".
SATYRICON's last album, the acclaimed "Volcano" (2002), 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 #4 on the Norwegian national album chart.
