The Shadowthrone is the second studio album by Norwegian black metal band Satyricon. It was released on 12 September 1994, through Moonfog Productions.

Style[edit]

The band have described The Shadowthrone as "an atmospheric and symphonic album with a strong Nordic touch. There are less acoustic guitars and medieval influences, and it is harsher and grimmer than the debut Dark Medieval Times, although it maintains the atmosphere."[2]
