A dark blend of the sludge and doom, crammed full of powerful yet clean vocals, scorching low-tuned guitar riffs, bone crushing bass and grooves: Becoming a witness of the MEGATHERIUM sound, feels like running over a huge wall of heavy distorted tunes that hit you like a sledgehammer, pulverising all of your senses. The four-piece doom and stoner metal band, formed in 2011 and hailing from Verona, Italy, has now signed a worldwide deal with ever-growing label ARGONAUTA RECORDS!
Following the band’s critically acclaimed Superbeast album (2016), MEGATHERIUM are currently putting together the final touches to record their sophomore release, which will see the light of day in 2019 with Argonauta Records. The band comments:
“Most of the bands we listen to daily belong to Argonauta’s family: we’re thrilled to be part of the most kick-ass label out there. We’re starting the recording session in a few weeks from now, stay tuned for many more news coming soon!”
MEGATHERIUM offer a wide open arena full of riffage and rhythm, vocals that stand out with a mix of sludge roar and clean, melodic stoner wail, supported by a clever use of keyboards. Light effects, smoke and samples transform a MEGATHERIUM live show into a unique and mesmerizing experience of all that is heavy, flowing from beginning to end with no pauses at all. After the band shared the stages with bands alike Ufomammut or Deadsmoke, to name just a few, 2019 will see MEGATHERIUM to unleash their brand new album on Argonauta Records.
