Inspired by the combination of known and unknown, Motherslug fuses the fuzz and crunch of doom structures with psychedelia and atmosphere to form a cohesive rock composition both familiar yet distinct.
Motherslug first hit the stage in Feb 2012 at Cherry Bar in Melbourne, Australia and since then have played dozens of gigs in the city, suburbs and regional Victoria as well as touring to Adelaide, Canberra, Brisbane and Sydney. Notable ventures include Headlining Rise of the Riff 2015 (Qld), playing at Brewtality '14, Metal Fiesta 6 (Cbr), Doomsday Festival ‘15, a residency at Yah Yahs, supports for Windhand, Beastwars, Isaiah Mitchell, Psycroptic, Clowns and Prong. Motherslug are a formidable live act with a reputation for putting on a captivating performance with a heavy dose of fog.
