Slough Feg - _The Lord Weird_
(Beef Rock Records, 1996)
by: Adrian Bromley (6 out of 10)
How I got to review this CD I'll never know... but anyway I did and actually liked it a bit. The record is an assorted musical melding pot with ample amounts of rock, 80s-era metal music and progressive metal all rolled into one. Reminiscent of a more rock-oriented Manowar-meets-Megadeth, the three-piece of Slough Feg deliver their battle cries of metal to the fullest extent. Such dedication of their music and what they do shine within the music of _TLW_ and that helps make the music seem worthy of a listen rather than turning your head to it. The production and musicianship is top notch. To note, as the band's album twists and turns with various styles, the music of Slough Feg seems to take on somewhat of an operatic feel to it as we reach the end of the record: "High Season III", "High Season IV", and "Highway Corsair". Kinda corny at times, but so is the music of Manowar (most of the time) and people still buy their music and go to their shows, right? Slough Feg carries and waves the flag of metal quite well.
