‚SATYRICON & MUNCH‘ – music that challenges the musical framework

‚Satyricon & Munch‘ is a collaboration of the Munch museum in Oslo, Norway and black metal icons Satyricon. The exhibition on floor 10 at Munch museum is build on a combination of acoustic and visual art.

Satyricon and Munch are from two different eras and their craft differs too. What unites the artists is that they challenge the frames of their art. Munch did this through his paintings while Satyticon expanded the frames of black metal which did not lead to solely positive reaction from the black metal community.

Also the newest musical adventure of Satyricon might lead to some controversial discussions since what fans get offered doesn’t have much to do with black metal in its basic shape. Instead, Satyricon deliver nearly an hour of cinematic and progressive music, all instrumental. The composition though mirror perfectly the vibe that Munch created through his painting. Death, despair and the blackened parts of the human soul is the main motif that runs through visuals and music.

Seeing Munch’s paintings and listening to Satyricon’s music is an impressive experience that is touching. It allows the listener the dive into a world that has little to do with the sunny side of life. Melancholy and darkness is what fuels this collaboration that gets probably even more intense when blending music and painting. In a way, Satyricon wrote a soundtrack for Munch’s paintings and it is the combination that makes both elements even stronger.

A few days ago, the music of ‘Satyricon & Munch‘ was released digitally and might be an interesting release for fans of dark and experimental music. Almost no hard riffs and a lot of electronic soundscapes is what this release contains. In case you want to expand your musical framework, this is the album to go for.
