Megachurch – “Speak In Tongues”

MP3: || “Speak In Tongues” ||

Cleveland stoner-metal trio Megachurch released their second album, Megachurch 2: The Final Judgement, just about a week ago, and I can tell you from personal experience that it is one of the biggest sounding and most fun releases this year. Check the highlight “Speak In Tongues” above, or head over to their Bandcamp to get the whole EP digitally, on CD, or on vinyl (limited to 250 copies). Their release show is tonight at the Beachland Tavern, and of course they’ll have copies of the vinyl there, so come out!

Megachurch Kickstarter

Megachurch’s self-titled 12″ last year was chock full of fiery bass riffs and insane religious samples, and that helped it make my Best of 2010 list . The trio is now in the process of recording their follow-up, and like the first album, they want to press vinyl. So they set up a Kickstarter with tons of extras included depending on your backing amount, like a guaranteed copy of the new album on vinyl, an EP called MEGACHIP which has their first album being played like an NES soundtrack, and original artwork by famed Clevelander John G.  Get to it!!!

Quest For Fire – “Set Out Alone”


Genre: Stoner Rock, Psychedelic Metal
Year: 2010
Location: Toronto, Canada
Label: Tee Pee Records
MySpace

MP3: || “Set Out Alone” ||

Any regular readers here will know that I have a major sweet tooth for stoner rock, and it looks like the best place for that right now is Canada, with Vancouver’s heavy-hitters Black Mountain and Toronto’s melodic-metalheads Quest For Fire.  After Quest For Fire’s self-titled debut last year, which was a favorite of mine, they quickly return with their second album, Lights From Paradise.  The album fades in between big epic slow-jams and quick mega-riff psychedelia, which really turn out for a mind-blowing listen.  Listen/download the second track, “Set Out Alone,” a quick taste of the riffage you will experience on the album.  Light From Paradise is out on TeePee Records right now, and you can buy the LP/CD from the TP Store.

Megachurch – “Exorcism”/”The Gay Agenda” from Megachurch 12″

Label: Self-Released

MP3: || “Exorcism” ||

MP3: || “The Gay Agenda” ||

I have been waiting to make this post for a long long long time!   I bought their self-titled 12″ at their Beachland show a few months back and since then, the intense creativity and talent has been bringing me back to the Megachurch of Cleveland all summer. Here’s Megachurch in a nutshell: Two bassists, one drummer, and a fuck load of ridiculous religious/political samples all at the same time. The formula isn’t for everybody, but for those Lightning Bolt fans out there, this is heaven. You can order the 12″ from the band with Paypal instructions on their MySpace, or pick one up at their upcoming Rock and Roll Hall of Fame show opening for Trans Am on August 18th!

UPDATE: Megachurch just released a music video for “More Mormon Than Mormon,” another track from their 12″. Here it is!
