Debut album by this highly original Norwegian trio!
Neither nostalgic or history-less, MEGAZONE by DEATHCRUSH soundtracks the present day mess we’ve made for ourselves.
The title MEGAZONE might be referencing the 90s lazer tag game, or MegaZone23 - the Japanese animated TV-series or its 2000s video game version, to which the Matrix bears strong similarities. Maybe it’s a very Deathcrush 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.
