Thank you all for the AWESOME feedback! \m/

Norwegian goth metal legends The Sins Of Thy Beloved have been dormant since 2000 - following the release of their second album “Perpetual Desolation” - and after years of a rumored reunion, Stig Johansen and Anders Thue have instead risen from the ashes with a new band, SAVN, and a new vision.

The seeds for SAVN (translated: Deprivation) officially took root when multi-instrumentalist Stig contacted Midnattsol vocalist and long-time friend Carmen Elise Espenæs about singing one song for the planned SAVN album. Carmen agreed, and Stig and Anders (keyboards) were so pleased with the final result they invited her to sing on the entire record. With Midnattsol rendered inactive for the time being due to personal commitments within the band, and her new role as a singer, as well as a mother of an adorable daughter, the Norwegian powerhouse found herself with enough time and refueled with energy to take part in this new musical journey.

Album Cover! 

The complete artwork of our debut album is now finished thanx to the amazing designer Jan Yrlund (Darkgrove)! 
Here is one of his works: THE COVER! Hope you like it as much as we do! 

One of the things that was very important to us, was that most of the cover should be REAL and based on a real photo. To get this idea into life, we have actually been working on "the cover" since last spring hehe  

We also want to thank Alexander Enoksen (Ålgård Fotostudio) for the fantastic photos and ideas!

String from Lingus Mortis Orchestra on album! 

Strings from the Lingua Mortis Orchestra in Minsk (Belarus) directed & recorded by Victor Smolski are also to be heard on our debut album!! It was our first experience with an orchestra, and we are so thrilled over the result! A big THANX to Victor and his crew!
