Slaegt releases new single and video “Kiss From A Knife”

Danish black/heavy metal outfit Slaegt (a.k.a. Slægt, meaning “lineage” / “heritage” in Danish language and pronounced /slɛɡt/) have launched their second single, “Kiss from A Knife”, today off their upcoming, 4th studio album “Goddess”, to be released worldwide on March 18th via Century Media Records. Check out “Kiss from a Knife” below.

Slaegt states about the track:

“’Kiss From a Knife’ is in some ways the most aggressive and chaotic song we have written to date. But, as the vigilant ones know, a certain order can arise from chaos, if the powers within are harnessed carefully and with the right intent. The lyrics to the song deal with the union, that can occur in interactions, that initially look separating rather than uniting. This might seem like a paradox, but sometimes, the greatest truths in life are found in the biggest contradictions.”

Previously, Slaegt launched the track “Fealty, Thunder Whip” in a special single edit version.

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. The complete tracklisting of the album reads as follows:

1. Deceived by an Amethyst
2. Kiss from a Knife
3. Hunt Again
4. Fealty, Thunder Whip
5. Stabat Bloody Stabat
6. Goddess
