  • If any of you guys remember the NWOBHM legends Megaton...you know how hard-hitting they were. They split-up back in 1981, but reformed in 2011 and recorded a new album. They still have all the power they did back in 1980 with the "Aluminium Lady" single, and softer songs as well this go around. You'll can purchase it now on their website:

    Direct link to buying the CD:
    http://www.megatonmusic.com/cd-purchase.html

    I got in contact with the group after they found my cover on Youtube, they said they loved it. ;D The guys were nice enough to send me not only 1, but 2 CD's for absolutely free, I even opted to pay shipping but they told me not to worry about it. Ross Torlak (singer) autographed one for me, even. (metal1)

    I 100% recommend this one to any fan of the NWOBHM (which is a lot of us on here!), you won't regret purchasing this one. It has blown my mind and exceeded my expectations. It will be available on their website very soon, as well as Itunes...keep your eyes open for it!

    The only original members left are Ross Torlak (lead vocals and occasional guitars), and Jeremy Nagle (all guitars). Shawn Bossick is on bass and Michael Leasure is playing drums on this one, but they're all VERY nice guys and excellent musicians.

    By the way, I updated the first post, but in case you miss it:

    You can now buy the CD! (metal1)

    The CD is not available anymore as the band folded when frontman Ross Torlak passed away in May 2013
