Album Review

Slough Feg's blend of classic heavy metal and Celtic folk sounds as if the '80s and onwards never happened. Such quirky anachronism, though, has earned the group a devoted cult following. If before the band's fusion of influences was charmingly messy, Hardworlder finds the mix focused and balanced. The record has a space pirate theme, but it reaches way back, faithfully covering old-school heavy metallers Manilla Road's "Street Jammer" and Celtic folk-rockers the Horslips' "Dearg Doom." In a world of death and black metal, this metal is hardly "heavy." However, it rocks hard in a very '70s fashion. "Frankfurt-Hahn Airport Blues" uncorks tough blues rock riffs; "Insomnia" bounces along like a sprightly Black Sabbath. The majestic chords of "Tiger! Tiger!" are positively anthemic, while "Galactic Nomad" has Thin Lizzy-esque guitar harmonies and the grandeur of pre-synthesizers Rush. Even the production is a throwback, capturing instruments with natural clarity. Metal can be epic without clichés; this record is ample proof.

Customer Reviews

Simply Amazing

Although I have only recently discovered the wonder that is The Lord Weird Slough Feg, they are already one of my favorite bands and definately one of the top few bands in the broad range of power metal. I would highly recommend that everyone buy at the very least one song (Tiger Tiger is my favorite).

Must buy!!

Slough Feg Hardworlder is filled with songs that immediately grab hold of every Heavy Metal bone in yr body.

GET THIS ALBUM!

My bro got me hooked on this band and this album has some really good songs such as Dearg Doom and Insomnia.

After ten years and four albums released under the mouthful of a name that was the Lord Weird Slough Feg, San Francisco's cutting-edge revisionist heavy metal band led by vocalist/guitarist Mike Scalzi shortened their moniker to simply Slough Feg before the release of their fifth studio album, Atavism, in 2005. At the time, the group also consisted of longtime guitarist John Cobbett (a frequent Scalzi collaborator, most notably with cult prog metal ensemble Hammers of Misfortune) and drummer Greg...
