White Ink is the long awaited new release from Satariel, seeing the band take a turn towards darker and more sinister domains than on their last few albums. Chapter One contains three new songs combining aggression, melody and power in a flawless and crushing production.
Formed in Boden, Sweden back in 1993, Satariel settled on a contemporary Swedish black/death-metal sound for the first album "Lady Lust Lilith" in 1998.
The follow-up "Phobos and Deimos" released four years later added doom metal to the mixture, emphasized by bringing Messiah Marcolin (Candlemass/Memento Mori) on board as a guest vocalist on some tracks. The following year Satariel toured Europe alongside labelmates Necrophobic and Impious.
The album "Hydra", released in 2005 presented a more melodic side of the band. Focusing on mid tempo songs, catchy choruses and clean vocals - elements that had been present since the debut, but used rather sparingly. The Mini-CD "Chifra" two years later followed the same path.
