Slegest Signs With Dark Essence

Slegest, the solo project of former Vreid guitarist Ese, has inked a deal with Dark Essence Records for the release of the band’s debut full-length album. No release date has yet been set, but it is anticipated that the album will appear worldwide towards the end of 2013. The following press release was issued about the band:

"Formed in 2010, it was the intention of Ese to create Black Sabbath inspired music with harsh vocals. An idea he took further, developing Slegest into the entity it is today with its rock-orientated sound distinguished by a distinctive black metal edge. Slegest’s first release was the self-titled 2012 EP, which appeared as both a digital release and as a 7” vinyl on Ese’s own label Systrond Recordings. Work on writing new material for the as yet untitled debut full-length album began in 2012, and the drum tracks have already been laid down at the Conclave and Earshot Studios in Bergen, Norway."

Ese also comments: “When you have to play every instrument yourself it does impose certain limitations on what you can, and cannot, do. But I have always had a very definite vision as to how I want Slegest to sound, and these limitations are very positive for the fulfillment of that vision.” More...
