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.

Think I liked "The Lord Weird" more but hey it's just a name. Not as awesome as Hammers of Misfortune but still worth a check out, haven't heard Hardworlder but I can't guarantee it'd be good.
