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


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.
