Satyricon is a Norwegian black metal band.
Satyricon credit their first album, Dark Medieval Times, with starting a black metal sub-genre of medieval metal. The album showed off the fascination Satyricon had with the Middle Ages, along with the extreme metal mixed with acoustic guitar and flute.
Satyricon's third album, Nemesis Divina, contains norwegian black metal with influences of medieval metal. This album contains the song Mother North.
Regarding their album, Volcano, the frontman of the band, Satyr, stated in a press release/biography, published on their homepage, that "the music is rock based but more extreme; it is black metal pushing the boundaries that began with bands like Venom and Bathory, reinventing ourselves based on a foundation of rock oriented Black Metal is our philosophy." It resulted in a total of 4 Awards for Volcano being, the Norwegian Grammy for "Best Metal Album", an Alarm award for "Fuel For Hatred" in the category for "Song of the Year", as well as The Alarm Award for "Metal Album of the Year" and not the least, The Oslo awards for "Best Overall Album".
Most recently, the band released a new studio album, Now, Diabolical. The album is generating a great degree of controversy in the black-metal underground, due to its straightforward, "radio-friendly" take on the genre. The album is selling extraordinarily well, however, even outside of black-metal circles!
