Oslo, Norway's legendary Deathcrush is finally here with their debut album. Neither nostalgic or history-less, Megazone soundtracks the present day mess we’ve made for us selves.

The name Megazone might be referencing the 90s lazer tag game, orMegaZone23 - the Japanese animated TV-series or its 2000s video game version, to which the Matrix bears strong similarities. Maybe it’s a veryDeathcrush way of (lazer-)pointing to Descartes’ Evil Demon, where the perceived world might be a comprehensive illusion created to deceive us. Maybe it is a rally cry. A status report? Maybe the songs are all questions we should be able to answer by now.

The lyrics on Megazone can often be interpreted both interpersonal and as a comment on current and recurring issues. With titles like EGO, Dumb and State of the Union - ignorance, the games we play, how where and to whom we’re born affects us and self-righteous egoism are recurring themes.

Deathcrush has played festivals like Roskilde (DK), Øya (NO), Iceland Airwaves (ISL), Nowe Horyzonty (PL) and The Great Escape (UK), venues like Sheperds Bush Empire and Club NME at Koko in London, and shared stages with Mayhem, Trentemøller, Dillinger Escape Plan, Battles, Refused and Sleigh Bells amongst others.
