MEGASCAVENGER - "Songs in the Key of Madness"

MEGASCAVENGER - "Songs in the Key of Madness"
Xtreem Music
Death Metal from Sweden

Is there enough dirty rotten Death Metal with horror themes in this world? MEGASCAVENGER doesn't think so, so they give you "Songs in the Key of Madness", their 5th album.

5th album by this swedish band leaded by Rogga Johansson (PAGANIZER, PUTREVORE, RIBSPREADER), where he blends a heavy and catchy Death Metal in the vein of GRAVE/ ILLDISPOSED with a hint of Gore bands like EXHUMED, IMPETIGO, GHOUL, FRIGHTMARE, BLOOD FREAK... Featuring guest vocals and guitar solos from members of MACHETAZO, CROPSY MANIAC, WOMBBATH, FONDLECORPSE and PAGANIZER.
MEGASCAVENGER has been around for many years now (since 2012) and on each and every album, Rogga Johansson has brought forth guests from many prominent bands. Legends from MASTER, ASPHYX, AVULSED, GRAVE, EDGE OF SANITY, MASSACRE and BENEDICTION among many others have all been doing their stuff on MEGASCAVENGER's songs from their first four albums: “Descent of Yuggoth” (2012), “At the Plateaus of Leng” (2014), “As Dystopia Beckons” (2016) & “Boneyard Symphonies” (2019).
This time, on their 5th opus “Songs in the Key of Madness”, MEGASCAVENGER has dug deeper into the graveyard soil than before to spew forth songs heavily influenced by masters like Exhumed, Impetigo, Ghoul, Frightmare and Blood Freak.
The guests featured on vocals and guitar solos this time were borrowed from MACHETAZO, CROPSY MANIAC, WOMBBATH, FONDLECORPSE and PAGANIZER and they do their best to bring out the worst in the blisteringly fast and utterly heavy songs of the album. The excellent drums on the album were rehandled by Jon Skäre (WACHENFEDLT and DEFIATORY).
