SLEGEST REVEAL A SECOND TRACK FROM UPCOMING ALBUM

Slegest

“Introvert”, the third studio album from Norway’s SLEGEST,  is brimming over with the kind of tasty riffs and catchy hooks that reach out of the speakers and grab the attention  of classic heavy rock fans.  Combine that with the essence of Black Metal, and you get the unmistakable, genre-straddling, trademark SLEGEST sound.

With its release scheduled for the 16th November on Dark Essence Records, a second track from the album has been revealed.  Titled ” Blodets Varme Gjennom Meg”,  frontman and founder Ese describes the song as:

A soaring track of heavy rock with a grand finale. Perfect for driving. Lyrically it deals with intoxication, not as perfect for driving but very good for music and overall feeling in body and soul. For me the 80’s vibe is strong on this one, and it has nods to old Rush and even Åge Aleksandersen himself.

“Blodets Varme Gjennom Meg” can be heard below

 

With cover artwork by Anders Røkkum,  the 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.

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
