Metal Blade Records has announced the signing of SLOUGH FEG.
Guitarist/vocalist Mike Scalzi comments: “We are very excited to announce that we have signed a worldwide deal with Metal Blade Records for a new album, which we are beginning to record this month. The new material will be standard Feg-Fare— that is, totally non-standard ..”
“We are also equally excited (if not more excited!!) to announce that Metal Blade is re-releasing our second, third and fourth albums in the form of a bad-ass box set! It’s about time these albums were made available in the USA! They’ve always been imports in the past, but now you can get them all at once. “
The Lord Weird Slough Feg which was shortened to Slough Feg after the release of their 2005 album “Atavism” has a name derived from a character in ancient Irish mythology, originates from Central Pennsylvania.
The band relocated to San Francisco, California in 1990 in hopes of resurrecting the ailing ‘true metal’ scene in the United States. The band quickly gained a reputation as, ‘The band San Francisco loved to hate’ by taking a stand against the trends and incorporating stage savagery with strong visual imagery.
Slough-Feg’s style is an eclectic mix of Celtic Folk and Traditional Metal peppered with buckets of energy and lyrical depth.
