Ten Ton Slug

Based in Galway and originally from the depths of Connemara in the west of Ireland, Ten Ton Slug has ingested five humans and leaves a trail of groove-laden sludge metal in its wake. Gigging started in early 2014 and the band released a live demo ‘Live at the Oaks’ in September 2015, followed by a very well received debut EP ‘Brutal Gluttonous Beast’ in October 2016.

The Slug has worked hard, building a reputation for delivering formidable live performances and has gigged extensively, supporting bands such as Crowbar, Ohhms, Planet of Zeus and Slabdragger and most recently securing a support slot with Crowbar for both of their Irish shows. In addition to this, Ten Ton Slug won the Metal 2 the Masses Ireland competition in May 2016 and played to a packed New Blood Stage at Bloodstock Festival in the UK.

The band are hard at work on new material for release in 2017. And they are confirmed for The Emerald Haze Festival on the 1st-2nd of September which will see them on the same bill alongside Solstafir, Belzebong, as well as other Irish and international bands. Then later in September, they will play alongside Belfast Doom/Death crew, THE CRAWLING for two dates… Cork on the 22nd with ZHI REN and SLUNG FROM A TREE and then again in Galway on the 23rd with STONECARVER.
