Satyr (born Sigurd Wongraven on 28 November 1975) is the vocalist, lead and rhythm guitarist, bassist, and keyboardist for the Norwegian black metal band Satyricon. In 2009 he started his own wine business Wongraven which he sold to Norwegian wine company Vingruppen while still operating the business by himself to this day.
Wongraven was a founding member of Satyricon (although the band had been around for a short length of time as Eczema without him) and have so far released nine albums, two demos, and a live DVD. He has also contributed to other bands such as Darkthrone, Eibon, Storm, Thorns, Black Diamond Brigade and Wongraven. About black metal, he stated "It, black metal, doesn't necessarily have to be all satanic as long as it's dark." He has recently been endorsed by ESP Guitars.
Wongraven was diagnosed with a brain tumor in late September/early October 2015, which he says does not need to be removed surgically, "as long as it does not grow bigger."
