We’ve teamed with Satyricon on exclusive vinyl variants of the reissues of their first two albums.
Norwegian black metal lifers Satyricon have been at it with the core duo of Satyr and Frost for over 25 years, and they continue to evolve and progress in fascinating ways. Their most recent album, 2017’s Deep Calleth Upon Deep, was genuinely great, and we look forward to the band making their planned trip to the US as soon as it’s safe (they’re on the bill for Psycho Las Vegas for now). Meanwhile, Satyricon are revisiting their early days with reissues of their first two albums, Dark Medieval Times and The Shadowthrone, both released in 1994.
The reissues come with alternate artwork, and we have exclusive colored variants of each one available in the BrooklynVegan store. Dark Medieval Times is available on silver vinyl, while The Shadowthrone is available on oxblood vinyl, and both are limited to just 500 copies each. Get yours while they last.
