Slaegt launches lyrics video for “Deceived by an Amethyst”

Danish black heavy metal outfit Slaegt (a.k.a. Slægt, meaning “lineage” / “heritage” in Danish language and pronounced /slɛɡt/) have just released their 4th studio album “Goddess” worldwide via Century Media Records. To celebrate the release, the band have dropped a lyric-video created by Cloud Music Typography for the album’s opening track, “Deceived by an Amethyst”.

““Deceived by an Amethyst” is a driving and pulsating, rock’n’roll metal song, with lyrics dealing about deception, wishing for the wrong things, but in the end realizing, that things have to change and ties have to be cut. All wrapped in the signature Slaegt sound, with loads of melody and edge,”

states Slaegt about the track.

Slaegt adds:

“The day has come! We are super excited, happy, and proud to finally be able to present “Goddess”, in all its glory, to you all!! 40 minutes of powerful and emotionally charged black heavy metal, done in the unique Slaegt way. We can’t wait for you to hear it, feel it and get to know it. Let us know what you think and don’t forget to order a copy!”

Slaegt have previously released the tracks “Fealty, Thunder Whip (Single Edit)” and “Kiss from a Knife” off “Goddess”.

“Goddess “was recorded and mixed by Martin ‘Konie’ Ehrencrona (Refused, In Solitude, Viagra Boys, Tribulation) at Studio Cobra as well as mastered by Magnus Lindberg (The Hellacopters, Cult of Luna, Dool) at Redmount Studios, both in Stockholm, Sweden in late 2021. The album comes with stunning artwork created by Dávid Glomba (Svartidaudi, Cult Of Fire, Malokarpatan) and showcases Slaegt’s most elaborated and accomplished work to date across 6 songs and 40 minutes of playing time.

Slaegt is set to hit the road for their first European tour in support of “Goddess” together with fellow Danish group Demon Head starting later this month. For more information on the upcoming tour dates, see below.
