Connemara metal band Ten Ton Slug release new music

Ten Ton Slug are flying the flag for Irish Metal music and have just released a new single ahead of their highly-anticipated album due in May. Find out more here...

Ten Ton Slug originated in the depths of Connemara in the West of Ireland in 2014 and plays a riff-filled mix of sludge and doom characterised by huge riffs and pummelling drums coupled with dynamic and charismatic heavy vocals.

The Slug has gained a stellar live reputation and a loyal and ever-expanding fanbase throughout Ireland, the UK and beyond, having shared stages with bands such as Black Label Society, Corrosion of Conformity, Memoriam, Crowbar, Conan, Jinjer, Bongzilla and more. Self-organised tours across the UK, Ireland and brief runs into Europe as both support and headliner alongside appearances at notable festivals including Bloodstock Open Air and Metaldays have helped spread the slime far and wide; continuing this year with the band’s upcoming slot at Maryland Doom Fest and run of shows in the USA in mid 2024.

Two studio releases ('Brutal Gluttonous Beast’ and ‘Blood and Slime’), one live EP (’Live at the Siege of Limerick’) and a single (‘Hunting Ground’) have all garnered excellent reviews to date, and May 2024 sees release of the long-awaited and eagerly anticipated debut album 'Colossal Oppressor', featuring guest vocals by Karl Willetts of Memoriam/Bolt Thrower on the track ‘Brutus’.
