Roadrunner Records recently sought fan questions for Norway's Satyricon to answer. Excerpts from the fan interview can be found below:

"Jenny Sanchez, California USA: I really like Roadkill Extravaganza- will you be releasing another DVD?

"Frost: Possibly, if we release another DVD it’s going to have a very different format to Roadkill Extravaganza – it’s not going to be a follow-on to that one. We have thought of making a live DVD. It is something that might happen and at a certain point it probably will happen. I cannot really tell how and when it’s going to be but it’s going to be different.

"Kris Keen: Ten years ago you released Rebel Extravaganza, which compared to your latest release differs in sound and style. What do you think Satyricon will sound like in another ten years?

"Frost: The good thing is that I cannot really tell! I think one of the greatest assets of Satyricon is that it’s unpredictable. Whenever we start working on an album we don’t really know where we’re going to end up. We might have some goals that we want to reach and we might put certain restrictions on our selves but basically we don’t really know where we’re going to end up before we get far in to the writing process. Then it starts to take shape and it’s almost as if the music leads us as much as we lead the music. At a certain point we realise what kind of an album this is going to be and how we can make it the best it can possibly be given the resources we have at our disposal. Especially this time when we feel that we’re going to leave the territory where we’ve been for a decade almost and enter something new, dark, challenging we can end up anywhere. We simply feel that we have a very fine instrument for expressing ourselves musically. It is almost as exciting for us to see where it can take us as for our fans.

"Andre Anda, Norway: Due to your collaboration Snorre Ruch from Thorns, is there a possibility that you will perform together live, as you did with Nocturno Culto at Wakken?

"Frost: Never say never but I doubt it. I do not manage to see myself being on a stage with Snorre. He has been talking about performing Thorns material live for so many years and he actually does have a band now but still nothing has happened. I now the guy pretty well and he doesn’t really like to play and play songs for a long while. He prefers to do his bits and pieces and he prefers to create things and to work these masterful themes and eventually make songs out of it. Being on the stage isn’t really his thing and I really cannot picture him in a live setting and if he was to play live I think he would play with his band now and not with any of us. He has a full line up of people involved basically just with Thorns and nothing else."

If you read the whole interview over at roadrunner you see that Satyr owns an original "Aske" vinyl EP with Euronymous' blood on it - apparently it was in the hallway where he was killed. He's "not proud of having it" but it sure
is a collector's item...
