Slough Feg - Hardworlder
Cruz Del Sur Music
They've been around since the early '90s and have accumulated a loyal fan base and influenced a lot of bands, but Slough Feg have flown below the mainstream radar. The Bay Area based band was known as The Lord Weird Slough Feg until 2005, when they shortened it to Slough Feg.

Hardworlder continues the band's unique style of combining traditional/power metal with folk metal. You'll hear crunchy riffs and extended guitar solos alongside Celtic-flavored acoustic guitars. The songs run the gamut from '70s influenced rock to classic Priest/Maiden styled metal to folky European flavored songs.

Vocalist Michael Scalzi has a baritone voice and sings with a lot of expression and dynamics. He has a distinctive sound, just like the rest of the band. Slough Feg is an underrated but always interesting and creative band. If you've never heard their music, they are well worth checking out.
