NEW ALBUM GODDESS OUT NOW
Danish Black Heavy Metal outfit Slaegt (a.k.a. Slægt, meaning “lineage” / “heritage” in Danish language and pronounced /slɛɡt/) have just released their 4th studio album Goddess worldwide via Century Media Records. To celebrate the release, the band have dropped a lyric-video created by Cloud Music Typography for the album’s opening track, “Deceived by an Amethyst”, Check out the lyric video, HERE.
“Deceived by an Amethyst” is a driving and pulsating, rock’n’roll metal song, with lyrics dealing about deception, wishing for the wrong things, but in the end realizing, that things have to change and ties have to be cut. All wrapped in the signature Slaegt sound, with loads of melody and edge,” states Slaegt about the track.
Slaegt adds, “The day has come! We are super excited, happy, and proud to finally be able to present “Goddess”, in all its glory, to you all!! 40 minutes of powerful and emotionally charged black heavy metal, done in the unique Slaegt way. We can’t wait for you to hear it, feel it and get to know it. Let us know what you think and don’t forget to order a copy!”
Goddess was recorded and mixed by Martin ‘Konie’ Ehrencrona (Refused, In Solitude, Viagra Boys, Tribulation) at Studio Cobra as well as mastered by Magnus Lindberg (The Hellacopters, Cult of Luna, Dool) at Redmount Studios, both in Stockholm, Sweden in late 2021. The album comes with stunning artwork created by Dávid Glomba (Svartidaudi, Cult Of Fire, Malokarpatan) and showcases Slaegt’s most elaborated and accomplished work to date across 6 songs and 40 minutes of playing time.

Starting out as a one-man Black Metal project in 2011, the band has grown into a four-piece and developed a signature sound of their own, combining well-known styles with influences from beyond the sphere of hard rock and heavy metal. Slaegt comment: “Amalgamation leads to the redefinition of genres. At our core, we draw from a wide range of genres, styles, and time periods and we combine them in a way that speaks to us deeply. We have many shades on our palette, both light and dark. These are, as in life, interwoven and become ever-changing constants.”With three albums and several EP’s to their name so far as well as over 150 concerts under their belt, including three European tours and appearances at major festivals like Copenhell, Roadburn, Party.San and Roskilde, Slaegt have built a strong following and achieved critical acclaim both at home and internationally, consequently ranking as most vital and exciting bands to come out of the Scandinavian Metal scene in recent years.
Look out for Goddess to take things to a next level for Slaegt.
