Satyricon have always travelled a more blackened heavy metal road ever since Nemesis Divina; the new album, Satyricon, directs itself on another tangent entirely. The album is book-ended by two quite unremarkable, meandering instrumentals, which feel like padding. They don't appear to add any atmosphere, as an intro / outro should do. The majority of the songs on this album are stuck firmly in a low gear and are evidence that the band are no longer interested in any kind of blackened metal. Indeed, the material present is firmly progressive in feel, but badly executed. The sound hovers between latter day Opeth style harmonies and My Dying Bride-esque doomy riffs; this mix in the hands of expert musicians like Satyr and Frost should have sounded amazing, but comes across as lazy and non-aggressive, lacking any semblance of the drive needed to pull it off. In fact, the album itself is lacking a general direction, as is evidenced by the mix of songs. The biggest problem on the album is Phoenix, as a guest vocalist has been used to provide clean vocals and the rhythm is more goth than metal; it feels like it's on the wrong album entirely. Walker Upon the Wind suddenly ups the pace, being the fastest song on the album, but, with its retro sound, it also feels out of place. The same can be said of Nekrohaven, with its industrial vocals and nu-goth punk rhythm. I did notice hints of the 'old' Satyricon sound throughout the album, but these weren't enough to save it.

Satyricon appears directionless, seemingly containing ideas that Satyr and Frost have penned, but have not really thought through enough. The production is annoyingly clean and polished, dispensing with any sense of the organic and replacing it with the mechanical. Satyr has mentioned in interviews that this is the new direction the band will be following. I just hope he manages to work out just what direction that is.
