Satyricon-The_Age_Of_Nero_(limited_edition)-2CD-2008-QTXMp3

Satyricon have always been a very controversal black metal band; writing many classic extreme metal hymns ( I think anyone who´s into black metal at least once has heard "mother north" ... ). But after some critical changes concerning the bands lineup and muscial style many of the bands supporters have turned away from the Norwegians.
Today, critics expect Satyricon's way of interpreting their music to be the future of the whole genre of black metal. In 2008 Satyricon refines that raw, less melodic even puristic sound they´ve turned to with their 2002 effort "volcano".
This probably makes "The Age Of Nero" a "love-or-hate" record. Decide for yourself!

The album packs a bonus cd with live material.
