After the first week of 2014, Slough Feg is back with their single “Digital Resistance”, giving us a sample of what awaits to be in stores by February 18th. Much like the last few reviews I’ve written, these guys have returned after a few years of hiding under the radar, with their last album released back in 2010 called The Animal Spirits.
The Lord Weird Slough Feg was named after a character in Irish Mythology. Based out of San Francisco, Slough Feg is well known for defying all metal trends and stereotypes, as well as bringing a whole new sound into the metal community in the States.
The best way to describe their sound is a mix of folk metal and old school, consisting of bits and pieces of space and weird. They remind me a lot of Manilla Road when it comes to their vocals, but with a bit more growl and Star Trek in the mix.
Digital Resistance’s amazing artwork was done by Martin Hanford, who has designed previous album covers for Slough Feg; Traveller, and their self-titled debut The Lord Weird Slough Feg. Hanford has also done cover art for other bands such as Solstice, The Lamp of Thoth, Pagan Altar, and Orange Goblin.
With a splendid combination of Michael’s vocals and Harry’s drumming, it’s hard to even sum up or describe Slough Feg until you hear it. All I can say is much like the rest of the fans, I’m stoked to hear the rest of Digital Resistance.
