Check out photos taken during the final recording sessions at the Audiopilot Studio at this location.
SAHG premiered a new song — "Ascent to Decadence" — from the group's upcoming album at the five-year-anniversary celebration/party for "Pyro", a Norwegian hard rock radio show, at Hulen in Bergen, Norway. Watch video footage of the performance below.
SAHG's second album will be released later in the year via Regain Records. The band was assisted in the studio by Brynjulv Guddal, who was doing triple duty as drummer, engineer and co-producer. Other songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Pyromancer", "Echoes Ring Forever" and "From Conscious Sleep".
SAHG's debut album, "Sahg 1", was released in July 2006 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!"
