MEGATON LEVIATHAN To Kick Off Winter Tour Tomorrow!

Oregon doom-gazers MEGATON LEVIATHAN, who’ve been diligently working on their new full-length, will kick of a short, week-long run of tour dates beginning tomorrow. The tour will begin in Arcata, California and hit Oakland, San Diego, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Francisco before winding down in their hometown of Portland.

Commented the band in a collective statement: “We are taking a brief departure from our work on the new album and split with noise grinders Actuary to embark on a short West Coast tour. We look forward to seeing our friends on the west side. Its been too long. See you all out there soon! Love and light…”

Last year MEGATON LEVIATHAN reissued their 2009 demo on limited-edition vinyl through their own Volatile Rock Records. Limited to 500 copies, the 35-minute production takes listeners on a cerebral journey that transcends far beyond the traditional boundaries of metal and music in general. Commented Alternative Matter: “If dissonance, reverb drenched vocal, soundscapes of feedback drenched seclusion and guitar riffs that could soundtrack the progress of a brontosaurus in search of food, make you prick up your ears, then Megaton Leviathan are a welcome addition to your collection.” Added Aquarius Records: “…for fans of all things dark and heavy and dreamy and melodic, droney and drifty and pretty and poppy and trance inducing.” Cvlt Nation said: “every song on this EP is a sunset & sunrise of melodic euphoria,” while The Bone Reader noted: “…five songs of slow-ish spaced-out heavy psych. There’s a great get-lost-in-it meander to much of it, but ML aren’t just mindlessly jamming on a doomy riff: these songs have somewhere to go, they just don’t mind taking their time getting there.”
