Sahg’s Live Demons

Celebrating the first birthday of their sixth studio album Born Demon, Norwegian heavy metal doom force Sahg follows it up with live EP, Live Demons, out now via Drakkar Entertainment.

Featuring four blistering tracks from the band’s last album, Live Demons was recorded on 21st October 2022, when they performed at Kvarteret in Bergen, Norway.

“This was recorded on the opening night of our Norwegian Demon Tour, and on the night of the album release of Born Demon,” said guitarist/vocalist Olav Iversen. “It was such a blast to walk on in front of a packed home crowd.

Throughout the following decade, Sahg released five albums, and played several tours and festivals across Europe, the United States, India and Asia to date. They have toured as support act for bands like Motörhead, W.A.S.P., Celtic Frost, Opeth, Clutch, Satyricon, Dimmu Borgir and Enslaved to name just a few, and appeared at prestigous festivals such as Wacken Open Air, Summerbreeze, Sweden Rock Festival, Hard Rock Hell, Tons of Rock, Inferno Festival and Beyond the Gates among many more.

The bastard sons of Black Sabbath, Motörhead, Pentagram and Judas Priest. Classic heavy metal for the new age, with a desire for the occult, aversion for religion, and a gloomy gaze into the inevitable apocalypse, all served with a cold bite of Norwegian blackness, that’s how many have described Sahg
