The Metal Insight Podcast #44

Satyr Wongraven on how he helped reshape Frost's drumming - and how he told him of his tumour

Oh, and that strange tour with... Pantera?

A longtime duo, but true individuals. Frost and Satyr – Satyricon.

This podcast is both an insight into Satyr the artist, as he tells us about what formed their new album ‘Deep Calleth Upon Deep’ – but also an insight into the relationship between he and his longtime writing partner.

We talk about how he and a drum teacher helped Frost reach such an exciting and challenging drum performance for the album.

We look back at ‘Rebel Extravaganza’ and what a change it made to the scene.

That strange tour they did with Pantera and Powerman 5000; and finally, how Satyr broke the news of his tumour to Frost.

They’re coming to Dublin on March 10th – make sure you’re there.

As ever, it’s a great chat and a deep dive. Do leave us a review on iTunes and Youtube!

  1. One of my favourite band’s, delighted there making a return to Ireland really can’t wait for the gig, would highly recommend going to see them live you Will not be disappointed!!

  2. ritualhammer Says:

    Another cool episode, although I haven’t really dug anything post “Rebel..” you’ve convinced me give this new one another go!

  3. haven’t listened yet but usually find Satyr a pretty engaging character so will do so in due course.

    Sticking this up on the front page did, however, make me go back to Volcano – which, at the time, I hated for not being Nemesis Divina Vol II.

    Volcano has aged pretty well, imo – some of the riffs are outstanding. It’s probably a bit too black’n’roll for me still, and I gave up on them after it, but the tour they did in 02/03 will always linger in the memory.

  4. Enjoyed that- good listen. There’s a good edition of Spotify Metal Talks covering him too…

  5. I enjoyed that. He seems like a down to earth and ordinary dude although how he didn’t end up with a drumstick up his hole is a mystery!

  6. Panopticon Says:

    Very enjoyable listen. I’d easily have listened to him talk much more. Very engaging and articulate. Agreed on the Drumstick AC. Any drummer I’ve ever worked with would not take kindly to the minimalist suggestions on what to do. It shows a real intelligence on Frost’s part to be open to challenging himself in such an open way
