SAHG Stream New Album Online

(Classic Rock) Classic Rock has premiered their exclusive full album stream for Delusions Of Grandeur, the new album by Norwegian psych rockers SAHG. Delusions Of Grandeur is a concept record about a person, whose delusions of grandeur escalate to the level where they consume him completely," explains SAHG's Olav Iversen (vocals, guitar).

"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."

Forged in Bergen's creative melting pot in 2004, the Norwegian riff-lords have conquered stages from Wacken to India, and their chart-busting 2006 debut, Sahg I, received universal praise from critics and fans alike, including an 8/10 from Metal Hammer while Classic Rock declared that their 2008 follow-up, Sahg II, 'teeters on the edge of a modern day classic.'

"There's no denying our influences," says Olav Iversen, frontman, guitarist, and co-creator of Sahg's towering sounds. "Our biggest heroes are the bands that truly defined heavy music. Sabbath and Zeppelin have created some of the darkest atmospheres ever expressed by musicians. In later years, however, we have also taken a lot of influence from modern, progressive metal bands, like Mastodon and Opeth. But the key to making use of your influences isn't by imitating their work, but by using them to create something new and unique." Read more and listen to the stream here.
