SLEGEST - Reveals Details Of The New Album

Norway's Slegest, a band formed by ex-Vreid guitarist Ese, revealed some details about their much anticipated upcoming sophomore album, the successor to 2013's Løyndom. The album is entitled Vidsyn and will be released on 4th November via Dark Essence Records. Vidsyn was recorded at the Conclave & Earshot and Systrond Studios, and was jointly produced by the band's founder and frontman Ese, and Bjørnar E. Nilsen (Vulture Industries, Black Hole Generator), who also mixed the album. Mastering is by Herbrand Larsen (Enslaved). Guesting on the album is Grutle Kjellson (Enslaved). The cover artwork of Vidsyn once again has its roots in the art of Nikolai Astrup. Design is by Tom Korsvold and drawing is by Lars Hellebø. Tracklist and cover artwork are below.
Slegest were formed in 2010 by Ese whose original intention was to play Black Sabbath inspired music paired with harsh vocals. Vidsyn sees Slegest confidently building on the sound they developed on their debut full-length Løyndom. As Ese explained recently: "We will pick up where we left off with Løyndom - mid-paced heaviness in all its glory and filth. I have read blackened doom applied as a description to our music. But really you need to add a good dose of rock and then you might get the idea of what we are all about. There is so much to explore in our world of heavy rock and we are proud of our new songs which, to our ears - and, after all, we are the blueprint - sounds bloody brilliant. The album will of course deal with death, and, since I write all the music and spend plenty of time thinking about death, I guess it is safe to say that we are most likely onto something."
Slegest will hit the road in December of this year, joining Shining's 20th Anniversary tour, which also features Dark Essence label mates Taake, with whom the band has previously toured (check the tour dates over HERE). Before the start of the tour Slegest will launch the new album with a show at Krøsset in Oslo, Norway, where they will be joined by Alfahanne, and, given the dynamism and sheer entertainment value of the two bands, this will be an evening to remember.
