Well, I’ve already given these guys a plug by interviewing them in the latest issue of CRKO Magazine, but thought I’d give them some exposure here as well. Cleveland trio Megachurch is one odd outfit that offers up a brand of technical instrumental stoner rock that truly is one of a kind! I got hooked when I stumbled across a live clip on YouTube and a week later was an owner of their first self-titled EP. Two bassplayers, one drummer and tons of samples from crazed television preachers is their forte – and they’re damn good at it!

If you’re a fan of stoner rock, or just eclectic music in general, these guys sure offer up a different take on the genre with some nice, unspected twists and turns reminding me of those quirky hardcore outfits from late 80’s early 90’s. One EP, one full length and this past summer they released the EP MEGACHIP, covering their own first EP – Nintendo Entertainment System-style! Check ’em out!
