Trve Norwegian Kvlt Black Metal

"Satyricon are kings of the True Norwegian Black Metal genre, and this album is just proof of their amazing skill. This band has been outstanding since day one, with Dark Mideival Times being one of the coolest black metal albums ever made. Not to mention the awesome split with Enslaved and Shadowthrone, also very good albums. But Nemesis Divina is the new sound of Satyricon. No more accoustic passages or thin hellhammer sound. Nemesis Devina is a masterpiece of Satyricon and shows just how amazing these guys are. Frost's hellpounding is insane, it sounds as if the devil himself came up to record this album with them. It is non stop blast beats going 666 miles per second. The growling of Satyr is outstanding. The malevolent deathcrusher 6 string has the perfect sound for a black metal album and the riffs are insane. This album has everything it needs to be perfect. Not to mention the songs. "Mother North" is probably the Greatest song ever made by Satyricon and some say the greatest Black Metal song ever made. The chanting of Lucifer's high priests, the shredding high pitch 6 string screams and lyrics about their pride for the cold, winter lands of their homeland Norway. The other songs on this album are great too, but Mother North is easily the best on this album. The title track is insane and The Dawn of A New Age really stands out as well, being a barrage of total black metal noise. Forhekset is also a very good song, featuring a really cool accoustic/electric sounding passage at the end. So there you have it. An all-around PERFECT album by an all-around perfect band. And yet you are still reading this review and not adding this gem to your collection!! HAIL Satyricon. Hail Nemesis Divina."
A sign of how the band matured

"Nemesis Divina a transitional album for Satyricon. One could listen to Dark Medieval Times or Shadowthrone and then compare it to the likes of Rebel Extravaganza and see two completely different approaches to black metal. Nemesis Divina bridges the gap - moving towards the ultra tight, almost clinical, cold and industrial tinged sound of their more recent work whilst retaining the mystical atmosphere of their Viking metal roots. The acoustic guitars are replaced by a clean electric and this time around you can actually hear the bass. There's little doubt that the band's technical ability, especially that of drummer Frost, has improved lightyears beyond their debut (which, whilst a great album and probably my favourite from the band, can sound cheap and unprofessional at times with the band falling out of time with each other).

If you like black metal then Satyricon do it better than most. Here are a band that weren't afraid to produce their music properly yet never compromised the black metal sound by recording over the top cheese-fests."

"It is sad that this is the 3rd review of an album that came out more than 5 years ago. But I just did one for Volcano (also very good) and I wanted to peruse to see what other people thought of this all-time black metal classic.

I will be listening to this album when I'm a toothless old bastard in a nursing home confined to a bed and I will force my nurse to listen to it as well. That's how good this album is. It is one of the, if not THE single best black metal album of all time. Period.

This album represents the creative peak of a band whose previous works were good and showed signs of musical maturation. The intense blastbeats, the deep yet clear and crisp rasping vocals, the long intricate melodies picked at blinding speeds, the dissonant melodicism - all of Satyricon's trademarks are perfectly blended into an album that did so much to define black metal. This album is the yard stick against which all other black metal albums are to be measured (even Satyricon's later releases) and will be for a long time to come."
