Norway's black'n'rollers Slegest get their 80s groove on
The world might be succumbing to 80s nostalgia, but Norwayâs Slegest clearly have the decade in their blood. Formed in 2010 at the behest of ex-Vreid guitarist Stig Ese, the band have a similar, no-nonsense approach to black metal, but have stripped it down even further to its rock and punk base elements, and theyâre ready to herald their new, third album, Introvert - due for release via Dark Essence Records on November 16 with a video for the track Undergangens Tankesmed, awash with the wonders of 80s analogue and eight-bit technology.
Featuring Commodore 64 consoles, tape counters and slot-loading video players alongside snippets of Dallas, Fraggle Rock, Rocky and more, the video shows the band getting their gruff, blackened, punkânâroll kicks in their living room to a track that hits a mid-paced groove motherlode, mines it with brutal eff iciency. Oh, and it has handclaps too.
âThe soil of a manâs heart is stonier,â say the band, somewhat quizzically. âIn a perfect world this video would be released on Betamax. It is shot on Haug, Systrond and it is filmed and produced by our fearless friend, Ãrjan Talle.â
Harden your heart, harden your fists, and prepare to raise them to Undergangens Tankesmed below!
