Slegest Reveals "Løyndom" Album Details

Dark Essence Records has revealed more details about the debut album from Slegest, the solo project of former Vred guitarist Ese.

Set for release later this year, the eight-track album will be titled “Løyndom” (Secret) and was recorded partly in Ese’s own Systrond Studio and partly at the Conclave and Earshot Studio with producer Bjørnar E. Nilsen. The album was mastered by Enslaved’s Herbrand Larsen.

The track listing is as follows:

1. Ho Som Haustar Aleine
2. Rooted In Knowledge
3. I Slike Stunder
4. Løgna Sin Fiende
5. The Path Of No Return
6. Faceless Queen
7. Dirt Life Death
8. Past Burden Strength

Slegest was born in 2010, following Ese’s departure from Vred, where he played guitar on four of the band’s albums. The following press release was also issued about the band:

"Drawing his inspiration from Black Sabbath, Ese’s use of harsh vocals to create a special blend of classic heavy rock and old-school black metal was used to great effect on the band’s first release, the self-titled Slegest EP which appeared in 2012. One year later Ese has developed Slegest’s sound further, honing it to achieve a result that is both dark and sinister, whilst at the same time losing none of the dirtiness that can be heard in the unmistakable catchy groove that weaves its way through the music.

"Whilst Slegest started life as solo project, with Ese handling vocals and playing all the instruments on 'Løyndom,' apart from a guest solo by former Vredband-mate Sture, it became apparent very quickly to everyone who heard the album that the potential for taking Slegest further and turning it into a live band was unmistakable and to ignore it would be insanity. As a result a live line-up has been put together and will be seen at festivals in the near future."
