Dog Tired from Scotland are on their way to their first appearance at the heavy metal festival Siege Of Limerick and are stopping in Galway along the way. They play self-proclaimed southern groove metal that has elements of Pantera, late 90s era Sepultura/Soulfly, and Lamb Of God. Live, they are noted to get the crowd going as much as their Galway counterparts with whom they share a lot of similar elements musically. Ten Ton Slug need no introduction, Galway’s prime metal act playing far and wide on the local circuit and the UK for the past few years, the most recent outing being the “March of the Slug” UK tour earlier this month. They recently released their “Blood and Slime” EP and have been pushing it far and wide, and its worked, as the next dates are set to be Metal days festival in Slovenia and supporting no less than Black Label Society on 3 nights Irish leg of their European tour.
Opening will be Stonecarver a new Galway metal band playing an intriguing mix of blackened doom/death, with their extra-long songs and without any pause in their live shows. We have yet to hear recorded output from them but judging from their live performances will definitely be one to watch out for. Openers are Tired Light, another band new to the scene with a Neurosis/Tool sound, and have been upping their game live recently, supporting Ancients and Black Wizard.
