Hear it at the end of this post.
It is called Delusions Of Grandeur and is the Norwegian psychedelic quartet’s latest and fourth release.
Sahg new one will drop on October 25 on Indie Recordings.
It’ll contain 8 tracks in all, including “Slip Off The Edge Of The Universe,” “Blizzardborne,” “Firechild,” and “Walls Of Delusion.”
The piece is a concept record “about a person, whose delusions of grandeur escalate to the level where they consume him completely,” according to Sahg’s Olav Iversen.
“From becoming increasingly psychopathic and dominant, he loses touch with everyone around him and isolates into his own imaginary, psychotic world, where he becomes the almighty ruler of the universe. As he stands on the highest peak of his domain and beholds all that he has conquered, he suddenly slips off the edge and floats away, weightless. Helpless and stripped of all power, he drifts further into the open space, until he disappears into the darkness. It’s an album about how desire for power and property can distort and destroy who we are.”
