It seems that, on their ninth studio album, Californian quartet Slough Feg have finally run out of steam. ‘Digital Resistance’ marks a change for the band. Even frontman Mike Scalzi admits it himself, as he claims to have stopped wracking his brain when it comes to the writing process, opting instead for a more laidback approach, writing whatever comes naturally. The fact of the matter is though, when Scalzi slaves away over his songs, they’re far, far better. 2000’s ‘Down Among The Dead Men’ and 2003’s ‘Traveller’ are both considered landmark records in the metal genre, largely due to Scalzi‘s writing.
