Frontman Satyr said of the album:


“Approaching this release, what I always kept in mind is that either this is the beginning of something new or it’s gonna be my last record.  If this is going to be the last, then it needs to be something special.  If there are more records, then I’d better make sure that this is so different from the last one that it feels like a new beginning.  I think it’s really, really dark, very spiritual and filled with confidence and energy.


“The way that I see it is that for any art, be it Satyricon or any other form of art with substance, in order for you to be able to inhale and completely understand it, it will take a little bit of you as well.  If you get it all after a couple of listens, you know that it probably won’t stay with you.  So the title is saying ‘from the depth of the people making this record to the depth of the listener…’  If you want to take part in this journey, you should be prepared to dig deep down in the darkest corner of your soul with us."  


The album’s front cover features an obscure drawing from 1898 by Edvard Munch.


Satyricon play a one-off UK show at London’s Heaven on Friday 29 September as part of a European run of dates.  Tickets are on sale now.
