Satyricon does not seem to get as much recognition as some of the early second wave Norwegian black metal bands. I could be wrong, but I do not see their name mentioned as often as Emperor, Darkthrone, Mayhem, Immortal, or others, but Satyricon is every bit as worthy. I actually like Satyricon's early material better than a lot of the material by some of those other bands. They had a unique take on the genre and were more than just an extreme metal band. Their later material is still impressive, despite being much more in the black 'n roll style. No matter when you can produce music as catchy and impressive as that.
