On October 19th, we are re-releasing our classic debut album, Sahg I, on vinyl for the very first time! It will be available as a double LP on silver or classic black vinyl. The album will be re-mastered and also re-released digitally.
Sahg I caught great attention both inside and outside the metal world when it came out in 2006, with its catchy, doom-leaded heavy metal, inspired by Black Sabbath and other heavy rock pioneers of the 70s and 80s, but with an occult, Norwegian twist.
When Sahg I was first released 12 years ago, CD was still the thing, even though the songs were born to be on vinyl and heavily inspired by rock and metal from the golden age of LPs. Ever since it came out and up to this day, fans have asked to get this album on vinyl. So, it is a true pleasure to finally make this a reality.
The album will include the ten original tracks and will be available as a double LP. The highly detailed, ornamented artwork has been re-designed to a beautiful gatefold sleeve, with printed inner sleeves including all the lyrics, production details and liner notes. Special edition packages will include a signed and hand-numbered art print and a 10 inch vinyl single featuring two "lost tracks" that were excluded from the album.
Since Sahg I first came out, Sahg has released another four critically acclaimed albums, toured Europe, Asia and North-America, and played numerous festivals around Europe.
Sahg I entered the Norwegian album charts at #31 and received brilliant reviews from international media:
10/10 Metal Heart (DE)
9/10 Rock Hard Magazine (DE)
8/10 Metal Hammer (UK)
4/5 Kerrang (UK)
