Rob at Denmark’s Power of Metal has put his thoughts on the Slug Comparison album here, rating it 90/100. In his review, he likens the vocals to Thomas Giles Rogers of Between The Buried And Me and Casey McPherson of Flying Colors, introducing me to a couple of bands I’d never heard before.
Rob, whose knowledge of prog/metal music is enormous, also runs a facebook page that posts a ridiculous number of interesting and sometimes awesome prog songs every day. I had no idea how uninformed I was until I liked the page–I suggest you do the same, here.

Today Slug Comparison was featured on the German website, Living Music Blog. Writer Cristina Somcutean describes the album as “a mixture of prog rock, alternative, synthetic sounds, gothic, and gloom.” Yup, that sounds about right. If you don’t speak German, the review can be twisted into your mother tongue using Google translate, which is always a bit of fun.
Italy’s Aristocrazia Webzine has been documenting Fen’s progress since 2010, beginning with Trails Out Of Gloom. The publication also weighed in on Fen’s 2012 release, Of Losing Interest. Today Aristocrazia Webzine published a review of Slug Comparison’s self-titled debut album. Written in Italian, the review can be translated for English speakers using one of the online translators searchable on Google. Oh yeah, there’s an interview from a few years back as well.
