Satyricon’s main man Satyr says their planned album of cover versions is still on the cards – and reports it’ll feature more than just black metal tracks…
The band first reported the project back in 2015, but those plans were shelved while the band concentrated on their latest studio album ‘Deep calleth upon Deep’.
But Satyr says they haven’t forgotten about the record and plan a release sometime in the near future.
He had this to say when chatting to Blabbermouth : “In general, we would like to pick up on that again. I don’t know when that will happen, because we have to really want to do it – we can’t just do it because it’s something that we didn’t finish; we have to finish it because we want to finish it.
“When we left it on the shelf, it was because, even though we were enjoying it, it took a lot of time and it took time away from Deep calleth upon Deep, which we thought was a more important project.
“So when you do a project like a covers album, it has to be because there is space for it in your life right now. But once we get there, yeah, it’s possible.”
Satyr also hints at the material that could feature on the record and adds: “We’ve been doing songs from musical genres that have been important to us that do not necessarily relate to black metal only.
“We’ve been jamming covers from the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal genre, we’ve been jamming folk music, we’ve done punk rock, 70s hard rock.”
