Norwegian heavy rockers SAHG, who feature in their ranks members of GORGOROTH, MANNGARD and AUDREY HORNE, will perform at the Cliveaid show at the Garage Club in Bergen, Norway on Friday, March 30. Also scheduled to appear are THUNDERBOLT, CRUEL, KRAKOW and CAT CALL.
Cliveaid was set up in 2004 as a fund-raising event for original IRON MAIDEN drummer Clive Burr, who is suffering from multiple sclerosis. All profits from the event will go to multiple sclerosis and teenage cancer research.
SAHG was recently voted "Norwegian Band of the Year" by the listeners of the hard rock/metal 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 is currently writing and rehearsing songs for its second album, which is tentatively due in the fall.
"We are most happy with the way the new material is turning out, and at the moment it looks like the album will contain an even wider variation than 'Sahg I', spanning from fast and propulsive, via slow and gloomy, to some experimental acoustic pieces," the group previously said.
A video clip of SAHG performing the song "The Executioner Undead" at the Hole In The Sky festival in August 2006 in Bergen, Norway has been posted online at YouTube.com.
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!"
