We Made Some Improvements To The New Satyricon Album Art
Norwegian black metallers Satyricon will be making their return with the release of their new album Deep Calleth Upon Deep on September 22nd via Napalm Records. The recent buzz about the album is less about the music and more about the album’s art. It’s…different.
That is probably not what most people were expecting from a new Satyricon album, but then again, it’s better than some of their previous output. On the one hand, it’s different from most black metal album art. All the white makes it stand out among the spooky, scary images and black on black color scheme. It’s definitely better than anything I can do. On the other hand, it looks like a sketch you’d find in the back of a spiral notebook. Some think it looks great, others not so much.
The art is actually a 1898 drawing by famous Norwegian artist Edvard Munch. If his name doesn’t ring a bell, making a gander at his painting will. Does that change your opinion of the art knowing who did it? I’ll leave that up to you to decide.
Regardless, we’d thought we try to make some changes and improvements to the album art. Take a look.
