Shadow Kingdom Records to Release 2-CD SLOUGH FEG Collection

Shadow Kingdom Records will be releasing a double-CD this December compiling the early live and demo recordings from metallic nomads THE LORD WEIRD SLOUGH FEG (fka SLOUGH FEG).

A posting on the official record label`s website about the compilation reads: “Some of you might not know that THE LORD WEIRD SLOUGH FEG have been going strong since 1990! My God…hardly anyone knew them back then, but they were onto something unique and special. Their earliest recordings featured vocalist Omar, instead of what (most) everyone is used to … Mike Scalzi singing. Their early stuff is really rough 80’s sounding metal with the obvious THIN LIZZY influence and a dash of Punk Rock.

“After all the years it it’s finally nice to see a band like this get a lot of press and success in the underground. Shadow Kingdom is pleased and incredibly honored to announce this release of their earliest live and demo recordings all put together on one release. If you are a fan of THE LORD WEIRD SLOUGH FEG — and are used to their ultra clean and crisp sound — you’re not going to find it here. This release is for the ultra-diehard fans. You’ll be happy to know there are 6 unreleased songs (including 2 cover songs) and a really entertaining interview with Mike Scalzi at the end of the album.

Look for this release to be put on, for the first time EVER, a quadruple VINYL release (if we can do it) with amazing artwork that inspired THE LORD WEIRD SLOUGH FEG in those early days.”
