Album Review: Megatherium - "Superbeast"

This shit is THICK.  So put in, turn it up, sit back, and hold on to your ass, cause you're in for a ride.  Just don't let "Prayer For the Ox" and all the creepy druids filing in around you fool you into thinking you are safe.  You, your speakers, and at least some of your windows are probably fucked!  In fact as I sit here in my car, my poor stock stereo system is shedding a single tear which is rolling down the dash as it tries hopelessly to cope with the massive fuzz and low tuned sounds emanating from every speaker.  If I close my eyes I can almost feel the impending doom of an insatiable mosh pit swelling up around me.  There is something familiar, something that makes me feel as if I'm there, in a sea of people, watching this foursome from Verona, Italy destroy it on stage.  There is just enough psychedelia in the vocals to make me flash back to a not so innocent time full of illicit substances, and late nights I'll never ever remember.

Megatherium describe their live show as unique and mesmerizing, with high volume, massive distortions, smoke, samples, neon lights, and video projections.  Just the fact that the recording made me feel as if I was at a live show is a testament to their efforts, and make me join my car with a single tear that I'm not closer to Italy.  The band formed in 2011 combining their experience from other Italian bands such as Aneurysm, Gen Marrone, Elicotrema, Mr. Wilson, and Tokio Conspiracy.  They spent the next few years perfecting their sound, their show, and writing new music, before finally releasing their monstrous debut album Superbeast.  Full of deep trance enducing riffs and hooks abound, this album will keep you interested from start to finish and leave you craving more.
