Satyricon - Rebel Extravaganza 2-LP (Black vinyl)
Satyricon here attempted, boldly, to state that “to see the real darkness”, they did not need conventional forms of black metal. The album also is a shining exhibition of what black metal could be. It remains to be seen if its majesty is comprehended in time, but its influence on newer black metal acts is plain to see. Again, rather than trying to top it, the band changed direction, towards a more approachable black & roll, making Rebel Extravaganza one of its kind, an hour long transcendental trip.
