Sahg stream “Firechild” on lastrit.es
“Delusions of Grandeur” out next week in North America
Metal Blade Records has partnered up with Norway’s Indie Recordings to release new albums from the label’s ever expanding roster. Last year, Sahg released one of the finest prog releases in recent memory, “Delusions of Grandeur.” Metal Blade has teamed up with lastrit.es to further spotlight this album. Fans can stream “Firechild” now HERE.
Sahg’s “Delusions of Grandeur” was released in Europe on October 28th of 2013. The album received unanimous praise from press, with Metal Hammer UK declaring that it’s “their strongest record yet”, and metal.de simply calling “Delusions of Grandeur” “Challenging and beautiful.” Fans of recent releases from Opeth, Uncle Acid & the deadbeats, and Mastodon would do well to listen to Sahg! Watch the video for “Slip Off the Edge of the Universe” and pre-order at metalblade.com/sahg. The album will be officially released in North American on February 18th.
“Delusions Of Grandeur is a concept record about a person, whose delusions of grandeur escalate to the level where they consume him completely,” explains SAHG’s Olav Iversen (vocals, guitar). “From becoming increasingly psychopathic and dominant, he loses touch with everyone around him and isolates into his own imaginary, psychotic world, where he becomes the almighty ruler of the universe. As he stands on the highest peak of his domain and beholds all that he has conquered, he suddenly slips off the edge and floats away, weightless. Helpless and stripped of all power, he drifts further into the open space, until he disappears into the darkness. It’s an album about how desire for power and property can distort and destroy who we are.”
