High Priest of Saturn

Stuck up on the icy western coast of Norway, Trondheim might not be the easiest way to embark on intergalactic voyages but it surely does hold an incredibly versatile metal and rock scene whose latest avatar is ready to take you on a hell of a trip.

Self-described as a psychedelic doom act inspired by classic stoner bands and 60s and 70s psychedelic rock, High Priest of Saturn are a Norwegian three piece that consist of the slow-pounding riffs and beats of guitarist Martin Sivertsen and guitarist-drummer andreas Hagen, and Merethe Heggset's eerie vocals, which seem to resonate from another dimension. The entire opus then is drenched with swirling, menacing vintage organ sounds, played on the album by Ole Kristian Malmedal.
