named after, “a slang term local to our area for a piece of machinery that was used
in the mines over a hundred years ago.” Isolation has most certainly
bred inspiration in the shape of Slagduster. “We are the only four musicians
in our small town driven to form a progressive metal band.” Grand Forks
Inspired by such giants as Goijira. Sikth, Meshuggah, Dillinger Escape Plan, Between The Buried And Me, vocalist Shane Sherman describes Slagduster’s sound as “progressive, groovy, creative, unique, heavy.” Set to release their sophomore album ‘Deadweight’ on May 5, 2017 the band feel their record will be well received by fans “Naturally our sound has come a long way since our debut release in 2010. The music is more complex, and much more developed, still heavy, but even more groove based. Listeners can expect to be challenged by focusing on the compositions, or lost in the musical landscape.”
‘Deadweight’ is due out on May 5, 2017 and will be available on Bandcamp, iTunes, Amazon, Spotfiy and all major online retailers. Today were are exclusively debuting the band’s debut single 'Peeping Ron' which encompasses many aspects of their upcoming album 'Deadweight'. Grooved rhythms, technical riffing, odd time signatures and pummeling vocals, layered over complex drum work. Enjoy!
