SLOUGH FEG - Digital Resistance (12" Gatefold LP on Purple Vinyl)
United States | Heavy
SLOUGH FEG has a style that's best described as an eclectic mix of Celtic Folk and Traditional Metal peppered with buckets of energy and lyrical depth. The band, who's name is derived from a character in ancient Irish mythology, originates from Central Pennsylvania and relocated to San Francisco 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. The band's latest offering Digital Resistance was recorded with Justin Weis (who produced the album with vocalist/guitarist Mike Scalzi) at Trakworx in South San Francisco from January-October 2013 andmarks the band's first new studio album since 2010's The Animal Spirits. When asked if the new album was a concept album, singer & vocalist Mike Scalzi explained that Digital Resistance is a concept album in the sense that The Beatles Sgt. Pepper is a concept album. 'It has somewhat of a consistent lyrical theme that runs through several of the songs, but not every song? it is not a concept album in the sense that our Traveller album is.'
