Sahg Reveal New Album Tracklisting

Norwegian metallers SAHG are gearing up for the release of their sophomore effort, appropriately dubbed, Sahg II, which is due out on March 18th via Regain.

The album (artwork pictured) will feature the following tracklisting: 'Ascent To Decadence', 'Echoes Ring Forever', 'From Conscious Sleep', 'Star-Crossed', 'Escape The Crimson Sun', 'Pyromancer', 'Wicked Temptress', 'By The Toll Of The Bell', 'Monomania'.

“This album is definitely a big step forward for us, both musically and technically/sound-wise,” commented guitarist/vocalist Olav Iversen. “The songs are more diverse on Sahg II because we have allowed ourselves to think more freely and be more receptive to a wider range of inspiration. There are so many directions we want to explore with this band, and this is just what we had time for in this round.”

While the band focused on learning from past mistakes, the recording process itself turned out to be a bit of a challenge for Sahg, with the recording studio being torn to the ground by the landlord after recording just three songs. Undeterred, they used a tiny rehearsal room as a temporary studio while seeking out another location. They soon settled at Audiopilot Studio in their native town of Bergen, Norway, a studio by the ocean, full of vintage guitar amps, effects, tape machines, and a Fender Rhodes piano. It was the perfect summer setting for Sahg to record. And then the technical problems started.

“It really felt like being under some vicious spell,” Iversen said. “But, finally, we landed it, with a bunch of pretty intense recordings in our hands that are very much colored by the strife and frustration we were in. All the hardship turned into something good.”
