20 years ago, the Norwegian band 'Satyricon' released the third album "Nemesis Divina". On the occasion of this anniversary, we have a re-release from Satyr! The first track is "This is armageddon..." and it tells the listener right away what to expect! The songs are a mix of mystic and folk sounds together with rage. You can only get away from it by turning the speakers off. This one is a must-have!

Satyricon - Nemesis Divina
By many considered the magnum opus of one of Norway’s most notorious black metal bands; “Nemesis Divina” delivers from the very first second. The cold, harsh soundscape of the guitars conjure up images of bone saws, while Frost pounds his drums with a somewhat dull, ominous air. Satyr’s croaking vocals enter with “This is Armageddon” and KA-POW (60’s Batman-style) we’re away on a blast beat journey through one of the bleakest, rawest and most mysterious visions of hell ever summoned in music form. The main riff on “The Dawn of a New Age” is based on one of mastermind Satyr’s trademark odd-period folkish melodies (with a twist), which make frequent appearances throughout the album.
Indeed one of the most essential and influential black metal releases in black metal history
What to say about this album that hasn't been written a hundred times before? It's an absolute classic of the genre. Satyricon really put themselves on the map with this one. Fantastic to have it readily available on vinyl again after years of it being tough to come by and out of print.
