Colin M. A HUGE groovy, heavy, collection of riff-tastic doom best measured on the Richter Scale. Playing this monster cranked up to 11 will result in regional aftershocks. Absolutely awesome!

FDJ Heavy down tuned massiveness from Italy. Throaty bellowed vocals roared over huge riffage and pulverising rhythms.
Great stuff!!!!!!!

Bucky This is a superbeast alright. Crushingly heavy, with the power of the almighty groove and melodious touch keeping it from falling victim to the derivative heavy doom syndrome.

Mortimer Potts I liked the general mood, the album as a whole, as a proposition, the way it is played, with relaxed confidence, deriving from the precise knowledge of their abilities, and still with enough urgency and need, with not just one single drop of tension. And the riffs, of course: so many riffs, high-tonnage riffs, breaking-back riffs, stone-handed riffs…

Mubla Na Thguob Doom! Tuned all the way down to the brown note!

An amazingly heavy monster of an album. I think this is worth every penny! Favorite track: Fly High.

about

SUPERBEAST is the sum of three years of composition by the Italian stoner-doom band Megatherium. A gigantic creature, emerging from the darkest abyss, evoked by low-tuning music, tons of decibels, heavy riffings and obsessive sounds. SUPERBEAST collects both the earliest stoner influences and the most recent psych-doom compositions. Lyrics deal with apocalypse, destruction, reborn, sin, redemption, good and evil.

REVIEWS

L'ARENA DI VERONA, 19/10/2016
"Megatherium is one of the few band in Verona still believing in gigantic, deep and heavy sounds. [...] Darkness is supported by low tuning, distorted bass and a martial drumming" (Francesco Bommartini)

STONED UNION DOOMED, 05/11/2016
"Megatherium is a new sonic monolith coming from Verona, Italy, with a stoner/doom metal tractor that reaches a wide range of influences in the genres [...] 11 pieces of a lysergic, fat and echoing sonority distilling heavy, dragged and vibrant musical waves and huge riffs."

OUTLAWS OF THE SUN, 11/11/2016
"Superbeast has become one of my favourite debut albums I’ve listened to this year. It’s a wonderful sounding and thrilling album that will hopefully reward Megatherium with a much bigger fan base. A simply stunning album."

STONER KING, 15/11/2016
"A deliciously dark blend of sludge. doom and heavy stoner rock crammed full of powerful vocals, scorching guitar solos and riffs, bone crushing bass and tumultuous drumming. [...] You will be hearing a hell of a lot more about these guys in the future."

THE PIT OF THE DAMNED, 16/11/2016
"You will appreciate Superbeast, mostly if you listen it with earphones: the mesmerizing effect is guaranteed."

HEAVYPLANET, 28/11/2016
"This shit is thick. So put in, turn it up, sit back, and hold on to your ass, cause you're in for a ride. [...] Full of deep trance enducing riffs and hooks abound, this album will keep you interested from start to finish and leave you craving more."

ROCKREBELMAGAZINE, 01/12/2016
"Slow as a prehistoric era, abyssal and gigantic as the Gran Canyon, muddy and dirty as the worst bayou of Louisiana."

METALHEAD, 19/12/2016
"So, this is doom. Smoke. Darkness. So much soundscapes (the use of keyboards is brilliant). The audio quality is perfect, and you will find in shadows, fire and smoke."
