Formed in 2013, Megalomatic sing about real life issues and they do so with equal parts muscle and heart.
A power trio whose musical might come across as a mixture of Biffy Clyro by way of Mastodon, Megalomatic have proven, over the course of their young career, that heavy music can have profound emotional resonance.
While the band's debut album Hunt For The Midnight Sasquatch showcased their penchant to play metal that was informed as much by Black Peaks as it was by modern popular culture, the band's new EP Symbolism is a jaw-dropping batch of new material that represents a massive creative leap forwards both lyrically and sonically.
While Megalomatic can play it dark, fast and heavy, their songs have surprising breaks and shifts that catch the listener off guard and beg for repeat listens. Their varied musical tastes that range from Mastodon to Everything Everything, demonstrate that this is a band that draws inspiration from the least likely of places.
