Norwegian black metal veterans SATYRICON have enlisted Frank Bello from ANTHRAX to play bass for their upcoming European festival shows.

SATYRICON posted what seems to be a post-rehearsal photo of their current touring lineup, featuring Frank Bello, along with an accompanying message:

“There is smoke in the chimney at the SATYRICON HQ every day. Next week we will fire up the engine again, starting at Sweden Rock and Mystic Festival. From there we go to HellfestTons Of RockARTmania Festival, Grieghallen/Beyond The Gates (two nights in a row),Brutal AssaultHellsinki Metal FestivalAlcatraz FestivalBloodstock Open Air and finally Næstved Metal Fest. In November we come to Latin America.

“As you can imagine, we look immensely forward to seeing all SATYRICON Ultras across the world again.

“If we’re not playing anywhere near you, maybe you will travel to see us, if not we will meet later some day. This is going to be THE summer!”

In April and early May, Frank Bello missed ANTHRAX‘s South American tour and two U.S. festival dates due to “personal reasons.” During his absence, ANTHRAX founding member and original bassist Dan Lilker stepped in, marking his first performance with the band in 40 years.
