Chronicles of Chaos 8/10[1]

Intermezzo II is the second EP by Norwegian black metal band Satyricon. It was released on 10 May 1999, through Moonfog Productions.

Background[edit]

On the conception of the EP, the band have stated, "We've used mini-album format to express ourselves musically in a way that would probably break with the scarlet thread of a full-length album. Intermezzo II was meant to be an appetiser for Rebel Extravaganza, but it turned out to be more of a thing of its own."[2]

The EP features a cover of "I.N.R.I." by Sarcófago. The cover was also included on the tribute album Tribute to Sarcófago, released by Cogumelo Records in 2001.
