Dark Medieval Times is the debut studio album by Norwegian black metal band Satyricon. It was recorded in August and September 1993 and released in 1994 through Moonfog Productions. It is now out of print and original pressings of the CD are getting harder to find. All songs written by Satyr. Satyr (Sigurd Wongraven) – vocals, guitar and bass guitar. Frost (Kjetil-Vidar Haraldstad) – drums.
Source for all this info: Slayer Mag 10). First pressings have in the back only the frames with pics of Satyr and Frost and the name of the band and the album, without any other text and without bar code.
Atmospherically, Dark Medieval Times is cold yet comforting. It’s a rather relaxing listen, far removed from albums such as Pentagram or A Blaze in The Northern Sky. This dear readers is perhaps the fundamental flaw of this album. Satyricon just never seem to reach any real heights with this album. Riffs come and go without leaving much of an effect; vocals are quite lazy, far removed from the fierce bite a vocalist such as Varg Vikernes carried. Keyboards are relaxing, almost to a fault, they work well in creating dreamy textures underneath the guitars but it doesn’t contrast well with the similarly relaxing guitar.

After spending years toiling in the extreme metal underground, Satyricon broke into the top ranks of their genre with the release of Dark Medieval Times. The debut full-length is loud and sinister enough to satisfy even the most demanding black metal fans. Being an independent offering, this record falls short in the production category. The muddled drums, buried vocals, and thin guitars still resonate with bile and negativity, which is, of course, high praise for a black metal outing
