Beyond the Gates 2024 & Satyricon present:‘Horns & Diadems’

Norwegian iconic metal band Satyricon will play two unique concerts in Grieghallen as Beyond the Gates artist in residence 2024. Since the early 90s Satyricon has been a flagbearer and innovator within the confines of Norwegian Extreme Metal - always searching for new ways to challenge themselves and the listener. From songwriting to visual art, production and presentation – Satyricon has always strived to be ahead of the pack. ‘Horns & Diadems’ are two unique sets that celebrate the music and art of this treasured duo, as well as honoring their impact on Norwegian music history and culture. From the early beginnings with 'Dark Medieval Times' and 'The Shadowthrone' to milestone albums such as 'Nemesis Divina,' the groundbreaking 'Rebel Extravaganza,' to chart toppers 'Now,Diabolical' and 'Deep Calleth Upon Deep,' Satyricon has made no compromises in their 30+ year career as a genre defining entity. The two concerts will have completely different setlists, spanning from the early days - featuring songs that haven't been performed live for many, many years - up until present day. Satyricon frontman Satyr comments: “What we are doing here is an example of the route this band has taken. A residency at the mighty Grieghallen feels like a natural next step following appearances at the The Norwegian Opera and Ballet and the art exhibition, Satyricon & Munch at the Munch Museum. We will try and show everyone exactly what this band is about and we very much look forward to it already.” Adds festival manager, Torgrim Øyre: “We’ve always strived to be able to offer our festival audience something unique – to take them on a journey that you can’t experience anywhere else. Working with Satyricon on this project is an exemplification of just that. The band has a tremendous history and is an artist that has always pushed the boundaries of the genre, never doing anything by halves. Rest assured - they won’t do that this time either. Satyricon has been creatively restless from the get-go, something that has resulted in a rich and diverse catalogue. We can’t wait to hear the band take a deep plunge into their history and and take us all on a Supersonic Journey from their roots and beyond.” The concerts will also include guest musicians who have made a mark on Satyricon’s illustrious history. The two shows will take place in the iconic Grieghallen Friday, August 2 and Saturday, August 3. The event will be enriched with a variety of art exhibitions and other Satyricon related activities. Expect the unexpected.
