Written and produced in 2018, matured in 2020. Overwhelming yet hypnotic, abrasive yet intoxicating, atmospheric yet dissonant: a single label would not do justice to Shagor.
Operating from the center of the Netherlands, Shagor throws a deafening silence and a salutary emptiness over the listener.
Inspired by the ﬂourishing Dutch black metal scene J., bass and throat, and P., rhythm guitar and throat, decided to work on a black metal record of their own. In 2019 all songs for Sotteklugt, a corruption for ‘Klucht der Zotten’, were ﬁnished and the band was completed by J. on drums and J. on lead guitar. A few months after that everything was recorded, mixed and mastered bij W. Damiaen of Catacomben Studio’s in Utrecht. Lastly Shagor, which stands for ‘Black’ in Hebrew, decided to work with Babylon Doom Cult Records to unleash Sotteklugt to the world.
