SLOUGH FEG “The Animal Spirits” is finally available in Europe on CD through Cruz Del Sur Music! San Francisco’s metal masters’ last effort is whetever you might expect from a SLOUGH FEG platter, and even more… the press has already responded enthusiastically to this new full-lenght, probably the most complete the band released to date:
“The Animal Spirits will hopefully alleviate a least a little bit of these sad facts, because it’s quite simply one of, if not THE band’s best effort to date. Again, while most obsessive Slough fans have their own personal preferences—2000’s Down Amongst the Deadmen, for example—what The Animal Spirits does so wonderfully is encompass all of the band’s myriad talents into one cohesive, well-flowing album. Emotional guitar playing from Scalzi and Angelo Trigali incorporates everything from moving Irish melody—a la Thin Lizzy—to a gritty, streetwise urban vibe reminiscent of early Maiden or even Running Wild. What the album really succeeds at, however, is filtering this through some ace songwriting; a level at which Slough Feg has never truly achieved or operated on before…at least not for quite some time.” from heavymetal.about.com Read more “SLOUGH FEG “The Animal Spirits” finally available in Europe!”
