Satyricon are already known for their high-art black metal, and now they're entering the world of high-art ... art. The Norwegian black metal legends are linking up with the Munch Museum for a multimedia collaboration with the paintings of the late Norwegian artist Edvard Munch. 

Best known for his iconic 1893 painting, "The Scream," Munch's work has a strange, gothic flair to it that could actually be perceived as pretty fucking metal in the right setting, and Satyricon members Satyr and Frost have attempted to do just that. The show, which is set to open in 2022, will feature music that Satyricon have created to pair with specific Munch works. The display will be housed in a large hall on the 10th floor of the Munch Museum in Oslo, Norway, but the music will eventually be released in album form sometime down the line. 

"We consider this massive challenge the greatest honor of our career," Satyricon said in a statement. "Edvard Munch created some of the most iconic images in the world of art and through his career demonstrated the kind of courage and freedom we have always embraced and aspired to us as artists ourselves. To write music whose ambition is to take the art of Munch into uncharted territory is quite a journey to be on."
