ANNOUNCES DETAILS FOR UPCOMING ALBUM GODDESS
Danish Black/Heavy Metal outfit Slaegt (a.k.a. Slægt, meaning “lineage” / “heritage” in Danish language and pronounced /slɛɡt/), are pleased to announce more details and launch pre-orders of their upcoming, 4th studio album Goddess, which is set for release worldwide on March 18th via Century Media Records.
The stunning artwork for Goddess was created by Dávid Glomba (Svartidaudi, Cult Of Fire, Malokarpatan), which can be viewed above. The album was recorded and mixed by Martin ‘Konie’ Ehrencrona (Refused, In Solitude, Viagra Boys, Tribulation) at Studio Cobra, and was mastered by Magnus Lindberg (The Hellacopters, Cult of Luna, Dool) at Redmount Studios in Stockholm, Sweden late 2021. The album showcases Slaegt’s most elaborated and accomplished work to date across 6 songs and 40 minutes of playing time.
Slaegt states about Goddess, “We are extremely excited and proud to be able to announce our new full-length album “Goddess”! Consisting of six tracks with a total run-time of 40 minutes this is without a doubt our most accomplished work to date. We have been more detailed and thorough than ever in regards to composition, lyrics, and production while still maintaining darkness and high energy in the execution. We have been as experimental as ever and have tried to push ourselves and our music to the limit in every single way regarding the creation of this album. Words cannot describe how much we are looking forward to sharing this collection of songs with all our listeners.
For the recording of “Goddess” we joined forces with legendary mastermind-producer Martin “Konie” Ehrencrona and traveled to Stockholm to record every single sound appearing on the record in Studio Cobra. It took ten intense days of non-stop work, far away from home, to create “Goddess” and we are very satisfied with the result. The artwork of the album has been created by the illustrious Dávid Glomba. We were super excited when Dávid responded to our wish for him to work with us and we think that he has done an absolutely outstanding job to fulfill our visual ideas and concepts for this release. We have admired his work for a long time, so it brings us much pleasure to know, that he has also worked with us now. “Goddess” will be unleashed through Century Media on March the 18th, 2022. Get ready!”
The band have just released their first track off of Goddess entitled “Fealty, Thunder Whip”, which is now available as special single edit version.
““Fealty, Thunder Whip” is a song with lyrics about a relentless desire to prove a point, no matter the price or consequences, coupled with high octane blackened heavy metal, in the signature Slaegt way!” states Slaegt about the track.
Goddess, which can be pre-ordered HERE, will be available as limited edition CD-Digipak in its first pressing, as Gatefold LP on 180g vinyl with Poster and also as a digital album.
Additionally, Slaegt recently announced their European tour with fellow Danish group Demon Head, to promote the new album. See below for the full list of tour dates.
