Slegest has since it`s birth in 2010 delivered heavy with musical roots in black metal and classic heavy rock from the 70’s and 80’s.
Back in 2010 former Vreid guitarist ESE set out to form a new project: SLEGEST. A pure one man band at first, SLEGEST in 2011 dropped their first release, the self-titeled EP Slegest on ESE´s own SYSTROND RECORDINGS label.
In 2013 SLEGEST signed with DARK ESSENCE - a Bergen based metal label of considerable renown - and their first album Løyndom was released. In fall that year ESE formed a live lineup for SLEGEST. Giving their debut show in the small town of Hoyanger on the northern shores of the Sognefjord, the newly formed lineup - ESE on guitar and vocals, SØR on guitars, HÖVARD on bass and FJØSNE on ze drums - gave the audience a taste of what was to come: a hard grooving no non-sense heavy rock band.
In 2014 SLEGEST hit the road in Europe with Taake and Aeternus from Bergen, giving the European a finely tuned blend of 70s and 80s heavy metal, combined with the attitude and harsh vocals known from the Norwegian black metal scene.
In 2016 SLEGEST released their follow up album Vidsyn, and once again hit the road. alongside Taake and the swedes in Shining.
SLEGEST have just released a double 7’ vinyl Lagnad I E, and they are currently finalizing their third album, to be released on DARK ESSENCE later in 2018. SLEGEST will do some heavy touring in both Europe and Norway in the fall of 2018!
