The Slug Plays Main Stage Metaldays 2019!

The Slug is set to return to Slovenia in 2019 to open the main stage at Metaldays 2019!

We had a blast the last time and we can’t wait to return, a number of New Forces bands from last year also join us on the bill again this year!

Our facebook event page can be found here, join us and bear witness to the Slime!

Here is some footage of ‘Siege’ from our appearance in July 2018 on the New Forces Stage

Galway and Limerick have been slimed!

We had a great time supporting the mighty Conan in Galway and Limerick, deadly crowds and atmosphere at both and Conan are heavy as fuuuuuck.

Here’s some footage from the Galway show courtesy of Marius for Hexen Haus!

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!


Thank you Metaldays!

Metaldays was an absolute pleasure and an excellent first European gig for us, we are honoured to have played to such an amazing crowd!

Here’s some footage of ‘Siege’, the last song of our set, from our EP ‘Blood and Slime’, thanks to Festcamper for the footage!

Our friends at Moshville Times reviewed our set, and it can be found at this link!

Tickets for next year’s event are already on sale here!



Metaldays approaches!

The Slime hits Slovenia this Saturday, 21st July!

We play the New Forces Stage, time slot to be announced very shortly.

Also for this gig we will have Pavol from Soothsayer and Zhi Ren standing in for our bass Slug Eoghain who unfortunately wont be able to make it.

Keep an eye out for Slug promo at the festival, there will be loads of king size rolling papers, some flags and plenty of stickers and download codes floating around!

Join us and embrace the Slime!

Slug of the Week #1

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…
