Slough Feg (formerly known as The Lord Weird Slough Feg) take their name from a character in 2000 AD’s Slaine series. The band resides in San Francisco and are currently signed to Metal Blade Records. If you like your rock speculative fiction-based, this is your band. Each album draws upon science fiction, fantasy, horror, and mythology – even history on occasion. Traveller (2003) is a concept piece based upon the classic rpg and features a character inspired by one frontman Michael Scalzi played as a teen. The second track on Hardworlder (2007) is based upon Alfred Bester’s The Stars My Destination; a special Gully Foyle vinyl edition (Foyle being the main character in Bester’s book) was released with the cd.Their newest release, Digital Resistance, continues the trend with a stand-out track entitled Laser Enforcer. The band’s twin lead guitar sound is a very nice blend of Thin Lizzy’s melodic hard rock and Iron Maiden’s driving riffs. Check them out at www.sloughfeg.com.
