The September 2001 release, Slow Horse II, on Berserker Records was recorded by Martin Bisi at the renowned B.C. Studios in Brooklyn, New York. Bisi's work with Sonic Youth, Helmet, the Swans, early White Zombie, Cop Shoot Cop and Material is the stuff of legend. With his considerable talents a part of the project and with the new diverse influences brought to the band, fans of the first recording saw the classic, heavy, melodic music they had come to expect from Slow Horse taken to the next level.
In turn, the Slow Horse fan base continues to grow as both releases and the Slow Horse live show consistently garner raves from reviewers and heavy music fans alike. The Stoner Hands of Doom III Fest (October 2001), in the Deep Ellum section of Dallas, Texas was used by the band, in conjunction with the German band, Calamus (Cargo Records), as the anchor for their fall tour throughout the US South and East Coast to promote their new release- as well as a Slow Horse/Calamus Limited Edition Split 7" (Berserker). The band has been writing new material for their eventual third release, on a label to be determined, as well as regularly playing both local and out of town shows- and once again incorporating their slot at the annual Stoner Hands of Doom Festival (IV - November 8-10, 2002 in Mesa, Arizona) on their recent fall tour of the continental US from mid-October through mid-November 2002. As of July 2003 the band is on an extended break for personal reasons. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
