Hailing from Grand Forks, B.C, named after, as vocalist Shane Sherman explains, “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.”
Inspired by such giants as Goijira. Sikth, Meshuggah, Dillinger Escape Plan, Between The Buried And Me, Shane describes Slagduster’s sound as “progressive, groovy, creative, unique, heavy.”
Shane feels their new album ‘Deadweight’ 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 through all major online retailers.
