Norwegian heavy rockers SAHG, who feature in their ranks members of GORGOROTH, MANNGARD and AUDREY HORNE, have finished laying down the basic tracks fo about half the new album. "These first days in the studio has given us a great start, and have put down a solid foundation for the new album," says frontman Olav Iversen.SAHG is being assisted in the studio by Brynjulv Guddal, who is doing triple duty as drummer, engineer and co-producer. According to a posting on the band's web site, "The new material holds great variation, and the remaining recording sessions, which will take place throughout the spring, will tell us exactly what kind of a monster that is about to be born. The second SAHG album is due for release on Regain Records sometime next autumn." SAHG was recently voted "Norwegian Band of the Year" by the listeners of the hard rock show "Pyro", which airs on Norway's national radio station NRK P3. SAHG reportedly received more votes than such other bands as SATYRICON, I and KEEP OF KALESSIN. SAHG's debut album, "Sahg 1", was released last July via Candlelight Records. Taking influence from classics — PENTAGRAM, ELECTRIC WIZARD, KYUSS and MONSTER MAGNET (to name a few) — it has been said SAHG rock with a groove that would "make John Bonham proud!"
