Megasonic are a band from Belgium that plays a mixture of hard rock and heavy metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Intense" which will be released in October by Mausoleum Records.
Thunder sounds start off the album along with some symphonic elements and a few seconds later melodic leads and heavy riffs start to kick in and after the intro the music starts going into more of a 80's style metal direction as well as adding in clean singing vocals and after awhile spoken word parts can be heard in certain sections of the recording.
Melodic chants are added into the music briefly and they add an evil feeling to the bands hard rock approach to metal and the band also brings in a good amount of modern progressive metal elements into the music as well as making every song sound different from each other and halfway through the album the band starts bringing in power ballads.
As the album progresses the music starts bringing back the symphonic sounds of the intro and mixes it in with their melodic song structures and the band has a musical style that would of been a perfect fit for radio stations in the 80's while the production is more up to date with the modern times and towards the end of the recording you can hear elements of blues rock being added into the bands musical style..
Megasonic combine a variety of many different types of hard rock and metal together to create an album that has a very melodic and old school sound while also being modern at the same time, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover real life themes.
In my opinion Megasonic are a very great sounding mixture of hard rock and heavy metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Demon's Lust" "Witches Brew" "Run For Cover" and "Man In The Moon". 8 out of 10.
