One of the most original bands of the new time are SLOUGH FEG for me. For all who do not have the luck to own the first EP from Beef Rock Records, like me, this is a re-release.
And it has power: a new cover, 6 (!) bonus tracks und the songs were remastered. All who are not familiar to the band, I want to describe the band's sound in this way: Old school Metal with Irish and Celtic folk influences and MAIDEN/MANILLA ROAD-touch, plus a highly obscure singing! Who wants to get to know the band, is well served with "Down Among The Deadmen" for the beginning. This last album of the US guys is more accessible and big produced. That means not, that it is easy listening stuff! Be warned.
I want to say here, that this debut beats the follower "Twilight Of The Idols" easily, when it comes to song material. A must for all fans of strange Metal! (Online August 13, 2002)
