“In late 1991 I joined an Oslo band with a few talented people with no leadership and no clear vision.
Those guys who didn’t quite have what it took, they just disappeared as time went by, and the ones who were left we took the name Satyricon and decided that we wanted to do Black Metal - black, death, thrash, kind of reaching in too many directions.
Then Frost joined in November 1992 and it’s been basically me and him as the core of the band ever since”.
