Slough Feg Signs With Metal Blade Records

Metal Blade Records is pleased to announce the signing of Slough Feg, who's style is an eclectic mix of Celtic folk and traditional metal peppered with buckets of energy and lyrical depth.

On February 5th the label will be releasing three of the band's early releases that, until now, were only available as imports. "Twilight of the Idols" (1999), "Down Among the Deadmen" (2000), and "Traveller" (2003) will be packaged as a 3CD box set will also be made available on their own, digitally, via iTunes, Amazon, or your favorite digital retailer. Check out samples from these albums and preorder your copy right here.

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!! Of course there will be some galloping, rollicking, bouncing buccaneer riffs unearthed from the Voi-Vaudevillian vaults, and a touch of good-'ol misery and madness (not to mention more peevishly punctuated puns) in the lyrics. But this time there will also be a cavalcade of cacophonous crooning to add to the caterwaul, as well as the lavishly-landscaped luster of some majestic Morricone-esque riffs at which to marvel---perhaps a slight proto-American-West feel. So as usual, you'll just have to wait to hear it yourself!!!

"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!!"

Awww yes! First Hammers of Misfortune, now Slough Feg. If there was ever two bands that deserved making it to a major metal label it's them so this is great news. Finally some attention for the metal worlds hidden gem? May Slough Feg produce albums to the grave!
