AllMusic Review by

Bundling together three albums from the band's early period as the Lord Weird Slough Feg, this box set from Metal Blade gives fans a chance to explore the early days of American folk/power metal band Slough Feg. Consisting of 1999's Twilight of the Idols, 2000's Down Among the Deadmen, and 2003's Traveller (which was based on the underappreciated sci-fi role-playing system of the same name), this three-album set contains some of the best folk-metal to come from outside of Europe. While the band's name might be a bit shorter these days, this set shows that they've always been purveyors of the mightiest, and most fun, heavy metal escapism around.
