Highly anticipated 10th album from San Francisco true metal troubadours! The tenth album from San Francisco metal bastions Slough Feg, New Organon combines raw, primitive metal with Mike Scalzi’s philosophical lyrical exploits for a trip through history like no other! When Mike Scalzi decided to trim The Lord Weird Slough Feg down to simply Slough Feg in 2005, it coincided with their new deal with Italian metal label Cruz Del Sur Music.

The actual shortening of their name could have backfired — metal fans can, of course, be resistant to change, but none of that seemed to matter once the Atavism album was released. Rife with dueling guitar harmonies, proto-thrash movements and the elaborate storytelling of Scalzi, Atavism effectively plotted the course for Slough Feg going forward. Since then, the band has released four additional studio albums and trekked through Europe multiple times, cementing their status as one of the underground’s most unique and respected bands. Five years removed from their last effort Digital Resistance, Slough Feg has returned with their tenth studio album, New Organon. Inspired by the 1620 book of the same name written by Francis Bacon, New Organon finds Slough Feg (who are rounded out by second guitarist Angel Tringali, bassist Adrian Maestas and new drummer Jeff Griffin, who split studio duties with John Dust) returning to the rustic, raw sound found on their early Twilight of the Idols and Down Among the Deadmen albums. The songs — in true Slough Feg fashion — are heavy, spun with melodic interplay and Scalzi’s imitable vocals, with lyrics taken directly from his lecture notes as a philosophy professor where he discusses (in mostly chronological order) the pre-Socrates-era, Plato, Aristotle, medieval catholic theology and enlightenment.
