Next up for the Slug is to focus on writing and new material in the lead up to our appearance at Crypt of the Riff in December, although other gigs may be announced for the interim shortly!
Metaldays was an absolute pleasure and an excellent first European gig for us, we are honoured to have played to such an amazing crowd!

Our first Slug of the week is Darren Kearney. His beard is formidable and his knowledge is extensive, thanks for the support and dedication to the Slug in setting up this website!
He is the former drummer of
Stonecarver, a deadly Galway-based doom band we’ve had the pleasure of sharing a stage with on more than one occasion, check them out!
Darren makes games and websites, you can follow his brand new game studio at
Mind Cauldron. Anyone interested in employing his web design skills can contact him here or on twitter.
Long may he be free of Salt…
