Yeah. I never listened to early Satyricon, when he was considered black metal, but I kinda liked Now Diabolical and all its 'black n roll'. Age of Nero, from what I have heard, sounds more black metal than ND.

That's kind of the problem. Whenever it leans more towards black metal, it ends up sounding like an awful parody (this was the case on the last two albums, as well). When Satyr just throws down and rocks out, though, the results can be pretty cool. There were also a few subtle electronic elements on the album which I liked--like in "The Sign of the Trident", I think, there's this low, electronic pulse during one of the verses that I thought added to the music.

In fact, now that I think of it, early Satyricon mostly sounds like an awful parody of black metal, too.

In the video for Black Crow on a Tombstone, Satyr looks likes he is impersonating a Christopher Walken, Ihsahn, and Elvis love-child. I mean, he cut his hair...he looked pretty badass in the Pentagram Burns video....now he looks lame.

The big sunglasses also remind me of Quorthon. But yeah, that video is absolutely ridiculous.
