SAHG, the Norwegian heavy rockers who feature in their ranks members of GORGOROTH, MANNGARD and AUDREY HORNE, has issued the following update:
"SAHG will tour India between October 25 and November 9 of this year. The tour includes appearances at the Great Indian Rock Festival in four cities plus three other shows across the country. This will be the very first appearances in Asia for SAHG, who meets the Indian audience with great anticipation. It will be a journey of discovery for the band, and hopefully many new people will also discover SAHG. It will be a quest of inspiration for our new album, which we with no doubt will find in the fascinating world of Indian music and culture."

SAHG's sophomore album, the simply named "Sahg II", was released on March 18 via Regain Records.
While the band's 2006 debut, "Sahg I", established the band as a force to be reckoned with in doom metal, "Sahg II" proves the band's staying power. Taking inspiration from the forefathers of all things heavy — BLACK SABBATH — SAHG creates its own interpretation of retro, trippy, heavy music, based around memorable, ear-catching riffs.
The "Pyromancer" video, which was shot on January 26-27 with director Asle Birkeland (who has previously created clips for ENSLAVED and AUDREY HORNE), can be viewed below. According to the band, "the script is loaded with prophetic mystique and blazing sorcery, and [is] a vivid visualisation of the song's theme on supernatural spiritual powers."
