Leader Satyr from Norwegian black metallers SATYRICON has issued the following studio update:"The recording is coming to an end. Next week will be the last before the mix. Finally some light at the end of the tunnel after almost four months of recording! Right now I am just looking forward to share this with you and see what you think. It will be a while though, but it will be worth it. I am sure."
Satyricon's eighth album and the follow-up to 2008's The Age Of Nero, is due out on September 9th. A new photo from the studio can be seen below:
According to Satyr, the music will greatly differ from what the group has released in the two previous decades.

A press release reads: "Mixing musical modes of expression is always interesting. New sound pictures emerge, and when they are successful, new directions in style and genre are created. What would a mix of heavy metal rockers and singers with operatic training produce? Let's find out! When the internationally renowned heavy metal group Satyricon mix with the voluminous voices of the Norwegian National Opera Chorus, we can expect some thrilling surprises with two such powerful and monumental sound sources and widely divergent modes of expression come together as one. Will it be operatic metal or heavy metal opera? Performed as part of the Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival."
