Dark Medieval Times

Dark Medieval Times by Satyricon
Released: Jan 1994
Label: THE END
One of the original Norwegian black metal bands, Satyricon released this debut in 1993. Marked by carnival-of-dead-souls keyboards and guitars drenched in reverb, the album also offers a smattering of acoustic guitars and the occasional flute interlude. Unlike their peers, Satyricon concern themselves thematically with pre-Christian times, Norway's formidable landscape and Viking culture more than desecration and Satanism. That probably explains the flutes. Despite the absence of Baphomet and his buddies, Dark Medieval Times remains as extreme as any fan of the genre could want.
