|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 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. 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. 2007 brought the dawn of Hardworlder, and a slight change of direction to a '70's NWOBHM sound.
Enter drummer Harry Cantwell, who brought the sound of anarchy in the streets with Ape Uprising in 2009. The Animal Spirits in 2010 brought the attention of Metal Blade Records and the band was signed to the legendary label in 2013.
2014 brings Digital Resistance to masses with forward momentum that will not soon cease.
