SLOUGH FEG (Cruz Del Sur) Hard in the USA tour starts today!

The Lord Weird Slough Feg, whose name is 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.

Three demos were produced by the band in the early to mid nineties. These were followed up by a self produced, self titled debut CD released in 1996. Scoring points for originality in the European underground, they aroused the interest of Dragonheart in 1998 and Twilight of the Idols was released in 1999 on Dragonheart Records. This was followed by, Down Among the Deadmen released in the year 2000, and Sci-Fi epic, Traveller in 2003. In 2005 the band moved to the Italian label Cruz Del Sur, and shortened their name to simply, Slough Feg with the release of Atavism.

…and 2007 brings the dawn of Hardworlder. Slough-Feg’s style is an eclectic mix of Celtic Folk and Traditional Metal peppered with buckets of energy and lyrical depth.

“Slough Feg make no feints at modernity… Trends will come and go, but Slough Feg persevere.” – Decibel

“…Slough Feg records are impressively authentic fare, metaphorically giving the finger to ProTools-reliant bands whose glossy sheen is aurally akin to eating way too much cotton candy at once.” – Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles

“Slough Feg’s songwriting is particularly fascinating for other musicians, who can’t quite fathom how so many ‘incorrect’ theory decisions… can come out sounding so natural and compelling.” – Deadtide.com
