with Panzerfaust and The Blood Of Christ
From the Promoter
Formed in Oslo in 1991, Satyricon made an immediate and enduring impact when they emerged from the flourishing Norwegian black metal scene. An idiosyncratic and fervently non-conformist creative force from the start, chief songwriter and vocalist Satyr and his percussive right-hand-man Frost made perpetual evolution and a noble disdain for the banality of much modern music essential tenets of their artistic approach. Having refined and redefined the second wave of black metal with early albums like Dark Medieval Times and The Shadowthrone, Satyricon screeched away from their peers in 1996 with the release of the widely acclaimed Nemesis Divina, simply one of /the/ classic ‘90s black metal albums and a mercurial blueprint for much of what would follow as the genre progressed into a new millennium.
From 1999’s vicious, industrial-tinged Rebel Extravaganza onwards, it was obvious that Satyr and Frost had no interest in toeing the black metal party line. Instead, via noisily acclaimed triumphs like 2006’s stripped down and seething Now, Diabolical and its pitch-black follow-up The Age Of Nero in 2008, Satyricon were proudly forging their own unique path, on a never-ending quest to express the inexpressible and to tap into the dark spiritual depths of 21st century humanity.
By the time the band released their self-titled album in 2013, their reputation as one of modern metal’s most vital, important and forward-thinking bands was way beyond dispute and routinely backed up by their unerring prowess and power as a live band.
2017 sees the release of their latest and greatest musical achievement, Deep calleth upon Deep.
PANZERFAUST. BLACK METAL FUNDAMENTALISTS. CANADA
Panzerfaust was formed in 2005 as an entity forged from the combined desire to create music and writing equally voided of their conventions. Categorically a black metal band, Panzerfaust however claims no ideology or devotional framework, and firmly holds an anti-theistic postion. Panzerfaust maintains that nothing is sacred. So, let no man be saved from our judgment, for only the dead have seen the end of the war.
Since the band's lowly inception, Panzerfaust has released three full length albums - most recently with their latest "Jehovah-jireh: The Divine Anti-logos." Being described as having "been revamped and improved tenfold" while dually "sounding like it carries a curse inside and it is unleashed as music as the record fades out." As Panzerfaust continues to expand, the music and the correspondent ideas have taken their symbiotic form.
"For Hell is not a place a man goes, but something he is forever to carry."
The band has held a reputation of having an explosive and emposing live show testified by their history of touring alongside the likes of Marduk, Aura Noir and Vital Remains as well with their support for Mayhem, Behemoth, Watain, Tryptikon, 1349 and Impaled Nazarene on various shows. Additionally, Panzerfaust performed one of four exclusive dates with Immortal in North America. In 2011, Panzerfaust performed at the Hell & Heaven Metal Fest in Mexico featuring Megadeth, Fear Factory, Kataklysm, Dark Funeral and many more.
In 2013, following the release of "Jehovah-jireh.." Panzerfaust was featured at the "Messe des Morts II" festival alongside Ragnarok, Revenge, Black Witchery and Mgla. Following this exclusive performance, the band toured Canada with Norwegian band Einherjer.
After absonding from the stage to render the band's focus to writing new material, Panzerfaust will be returning to support Nile in Toronto, April 24th.
