“The sound is ethereal doom/drone/ambient sonic vastness with beautiful hooks.” - Cosmic Hears
The cult 2009 demo from Portland, Oregon’s psychedelic “doomgazers”, Megaton Leviathan, is now available on 12” LP vinyl format. Remastered by Carl Saff specifically for vinyl, this pressing is limited to 500 copies. Praise and admiration for this demo, by those fortunate enough to have obtained the ultra-limited CD-R version, was punctuated by Scott Kelly, of the legendary Neurosis, playing the lead track, “Water Wealth Hell on Earth”, on his highly revered Combat Music Radio program.
The 2009 demo lifts off with raw and heavy, celestial riffing then sets adrift on experimental psyche and finally lands on a shoegaze, post-rock dream, all in the span of 35 minutes. Solidly fulfilling its purpose to introduce the band, this demo also serves to lay the foundation for Megaton Leviathan’s sound and future releases.
In support of the 2009 demo LP release, Megaton Leviathan will embark on an East Coast tour supporting Southern Lord recording artists, Wolves in the Throne Room. The tour, commencing on September 14, 2011 and culminating on September 28, 2011, will hit such
markets as Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Atlanta, Tampa, and Austin. Well known for their high-energy and over-the-top live performances, Megaton Leviathan anticipates gaining new audiences with their unique sound and stunning visual presentation.
