SAHG is a Norwegian band formed in Bergen in 2004. Their first released was the EP entitled “Godless” in 2005 that was quickly followed by the full-lengh “I” (2006). Their next full-length “II” (2008) was still released under Regain Records. After which they moved till the current day to Indie Recordings, releasing the full length “III” (2010) and “Delusions of grandeur” (2013).
As in many other bands some line-up changes occurred along their career. In 2010 they saw their original drummer Kvitrafn replaced by Thomas Lønnheim. In 2011 King abandoned the band to prioritise other projects and Tony Vetaas took is place since he had been filling in for him on several shows. In the beginning of 2015 a major challenge for the future band occurred with the departure of Thomas Tofthagen (guitar) and Thomas Lønnheim (drums), representing a change in half of the band. Ole Walaunet with an impressive reputation as guitarist and composer in Bergen metal scene took the role as lead guitar. Mads Lilletvedt with his expressive style of drumming also joined the lineup of SAHG at this moment.
The band managed along the years to established themselves as Norway’s indisputable doom lords. “Delusions of Grandeur” marked their transition to a more progressive era, still keeping the heavy and gloomy sonorities that characterised them since the start.
