Megascavenger - Songs of Flesh Part 1 7 inch


2012 was another busy year in the life of Rogga Johansson with albums from The Grotesquery, Revolting, Putrevore and Humanity Delete and still he had time to form a new band called Megascavenger, borrowing the idea from Fred Esteby and his Necronaut or from Dave Grohls Probot if you like. The main idea behind it was to have a different vocalists on each song and it was supposed to be a well known and respected name. So for the debut single Rogga invited Jorgen Sandstrom from Torture Division (and ex-Grave, Krux and Entombed fame) and Paul Speckmann (Master, ex Abomination and Krabathor). Both of those featured vocalists are legends in their own right, and certainly both turn in worthy performances to these fairly straightforward old-school death metal tunes, with the expected downtuned riffing from Rogga. The first song, “Deathobsessed “, is a smasher with those razor sharp riffs and atmosphere. Great production, chunky riffs, played in great mid paced tempo, very brutal but also horrifyingly catchy and even groovy… this is the essence of the old school death metal! And Jorgen did some cruel and amazing vocals there! It’s a bit similar to Ribspreader, in my opinion, but that’s cool, as I like this band a lot. “No Haven For The Sane” is pretty much similar in style of riffing – groovy and aggressive, but the vocals are much more obscure, just as you would expect from Speckmann, so this song really takes us even more back to the origins of US death metal and bands like Master, Autopsy and Repulsion.
