(9/10) 20 years after having released the original longplayer via Monolog Productions it is Napalm Records that reissues this milestone album. Satyricon was already well known when "Nemesis Divina" underlined the status of Satyr and bandmates back in 1996. The fact that this album is still as fascinating as it was two decades ago underlines, that this record is a timeless classic, written for eternity.
"Nemesis Divina" was the last chapter of Satyricon's pure focus on oldschool Norwegian black metal. From that point on they developed there sound with some more experimental moments, opening up even for the "Live at the Opera" show later in their career.
The new version of this black metal masterpiece went through a remastering process, done by no less than Satry himself. Compared to the original version the reissue sounds even more powerful and band anthems like "Mother North" shine in new splendor; something that actually goes for each of the seven tracks on this iconic longplayer.
The artwork of this enriched package is kept the same as it was in 1996. It's anyhow a real match that perfectly expresses the dark and mystic vibe of each of the songs captured on "Nemesis Divina".
Next to this re-release Satyricon planned some shows during summer, playing "Nemesis Divina" in its entirety. So, it's the right time to enjoy some oldschool black metal.
