“Mortify”, the new video from SAHG — the Norwegian heavy rockers who feature in their ranks current/former members of GORGOROTH, MANNGARD and AUDREY HORNE — can be viewed below. The clip was directed by Tommy Naess.
“Mortify” comes off SAHG‘s third album, “Sahg III”, which was released on August 30, 2010 through Indie Recordings.
An e-card for “Sahg III” is available at this location.
An Indie Recordings press release states: “Not many heavy metal bands can boast of chart positions and two-page bulletins in all the national newspapers for a debut album. SAHG can. With their gloomy chords, ten-ton rhythms and a taste for the heavy rock pioneers of the Seventies, the Bergen-based quartet had the audience and critics toss their hats in the air with excitement. ‘Sahg I’ (2006) filled a void in the Norwegian metal fauna, and was an indisputable success in Norway, as well as abroad. The album got 10 out of 10 points in German Rock Hard magazine, and 8 out of 10 in the U.K. edition of Metal Hammer. The success debut album brought the band on tour Stateside, as opening act for extreme metal pioneers CELTIC FROST, and made SAHG ‘the one to watch’ at a string of metal festivals.
“Two years later, SAHG confirmed their status as Norway’s undisputable doom lords. Many considered ‘Sahg II’ as a more refined album than the debut, and featuring spearhead tracks like ‘Ascent to Decadence’ and ‘Pyromancer’, the album became another door-opener for the quartet. In the wake of the second album release, the band toured Europe as support act to legendary headliners TROUBLE, played arenas across India, and performed at prestigious festivals like Wacken Open Air, Inferno, and Metalcamp.”
