NEW SINGLE FROM UPCOMING SLEGEST FULL-LENGTH REVEALED AND NEW TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED

Slegest - Introvert CD

“Introvert”, the upcoming third studio album from SLEGEST, sees the Norwegians well and truly solidifying that bone crunching mix of black metal and classic heavy rock that is their trademark sound.    Scheduled for release on Dark Essence Records on the 16th November, the label has today released the first single from the album.

The track,  “Undergangens Tankesmed”, can be heard below and and is available to purchase from https://slegest.bandcamp.com/track/undergangens-tankesmed

As well as from a selection of digital platforms at https://darkessencerecords.lnk.to/Slegest_UndergangensTankesmed

Filled with tasty riffs, hooks that pull you in, and a vicious catchiness, the 80’s feel  makes itself subtly felt on the new album.  As for the first single, Slegest’s  frontman and main composer Ese comments:

“Undergangens Tankesmed” is about the fact that all you wish for, and your true inner dreams, eventually lead you down a path to your own destruction. So you might as well just follow your heart and enjoy the adrenaline-pumping ride downwards!”

Bass and vocals for “Introvert”  were recorded in Systrond and engineered by Ese.  Drums and guitars were recorded at the Conclave and Earshot Studios in Bergen with  Bjørnar Erevik Nilsen engineering the drums,  whilst the guitars were engineered by Herbrand Larsen, who also mixed the album.  Iver Sandøy handled the mastering.

With cover artwork by Anders Røkkum, “Introvert” will be available in CD, Digital and Vinyl formats.

Tracklisting is as follows:

1 Blodets Varme Gjennom Meg
2 Undergangens Tankesmed
3 Maler Lys I Mørketid
4 Da Brenne I Glåsi
5 I Den Sanne Flamme
6 Dødskyss
7 Leitar
8 Den Onde Sirkel
