With just over a week to go before the release of “Løyndom”, the debut album from Norway’s SLEGEST, the band has released a music video for the opening track of the album “Ho Som Haustar Aleine”.  The video,  produced by Håvard Nesbø and Ørjan Talle, features the band’s newly formed live-lineup, which includes founder Ese (ex-VREID) on Vocals and Rhythm Guitars, Sør (BÄÄÄV, VONBRÅTEN) on Lead Guitars, Hövard (BOMBEKLÜCHTER) on Bass and Fjøsne on Drums.  The video is being debuted by Metal Hammer Norway and can be seen at

SLEGEST, formed in 2010 by former VREID guitarist Ese originally as a solo studio project, plays a mix of classic Heavy Rock combined with old-school black metal vocals.  The band’s first release, a self-titled EP, appeared in 2012, after which SLEGEST inked a deal with Dark Essence Records for the release of the debut full-length album. “Løyndom”  was recorded partly in Ese’s own Systrond Studio and partly at the Conclave and Earshot Studio with producer Bjørnar E. Nilsen and was mastered by ENSLAVED’s Herbrand Larsen.  The artwork for “Løyndom” includes drawings by Jan Magne Vigdal and design by Tom Korsvold.  Tracklisting for “Løyndom”, which is set to hit the streets on the 7th October as follows:
