Dark Essence Records Release: 7 October 2013
Slegest came into life as Ese
left Vreid in 2010, where he played guitar on four albums. For Slegest,
Ese wanted to use his inspiration from Black Sabbath and combine this
with harsh vocals. This resulted in a special blend of classic heavy
rock and old-school black metal elements, creating a dark and sinister
sound combined with lots of groove. The self-titled Slegest debut EP was
released in 2012 and got very good feedback from the metal scene.
Shortly thereafter Ese started the work on his debut album, and now
“Løyndom” is ready to be released on Dark Essence Records. With
“Løyndom” Slegest takes its original sound a step further, without
losing any of the dirtiness or catchy groove. Apart from playing all the
instruments (except a guest solo from his former band mate Sture), Ese
also recorded and mixed most of the album at his Systrond Studio
together with some parts at Conclave & Earshot Studio with Bjørnar
E. Nilsen. The album is mastered by Herbrand Larsen (Enslaved).
Ese has now put together a live band, and will be seen at festivals in
the near future. The Slegest combination of heavy and classic hard rock
with old-school mid-paced black metal is a crushing experience, and fans
of heavy and groovy extreme metal won’t be disappointed.
