James The best, most consistently excellent epic metal release of 2019. Yes, this has a very specific Eternal Champion sound (and lyrical themes), but they absolutely nail it. If you are looking for a point of differentiation, the vocals have a more "Ozzy as goblin sorcerer" vibe (I'm not saying that like it's a bad thing). Also, do not be put off by the name of the first track being "Vulva of the Nightfall". You can't have everything. Favorite track: For Glory.

Sojourner An astoshingly superior and confident debut from the strongest newcomer in ages. Imagine Biff Byford covering 'Frost and Fire' with Eternal Champion. A raw, powerful, rousing performance that combines traditional elements, yet manages to sound fresh. Must-have for Epic-Metal fans! Favorite track: For Glory.

about

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present MEGATON SWORD's striking debut EP, Niralet, on CD and 12" vinyl formats.

Hailing from Switzerland and founded in 2018, MEGATON SWORD are ever aptly monikered: theirs is a nuclear-powered style of true-as-steel HEAVY METAL drunk on high fantasy and the enduring themes of conquest and valor, triumph and tragedy. The band's first public recording is titled Niralet, and it arrives as a fully formed document of a young band already capitalizing on their considerable strengths. The quartet - vocalist Uzzy Unchained, guitarist Chris the Axe, bassist Simon the Sorcerer, and drummer Dan Thundersteel - here create five mini-epics that feel far vaster than their succinct track times suggest. Perhaps it's the patient pacing they employ, allowing each bellow of bathos and push of pathos to ring out and as true as possible; perhaps it's the passion and machismo dripping from every element, every drop of blood, sweat, and tears tangible and intense; or perhaps it's Niralet simultaneously sounding timeless and fresh, safely evading both rote "retro" throwback and over-modernity in kind.

We can make references to '80s Manowar, Warlord, and Manilla Road as well as maybe early Running Wild or Nasty Savage, but even this early on, MEGATON SWORD are being no one but themselves. Wield MEGATON SWORD and begin the quest to Niralet! Suitably soothing 'n' eerie artwork courtesy of Adam Burke.
