Megalomaniac-Speed Demon

This 2011 demo was uploaded by Megalomaniac's vocalist JÖNS-OLLE at another blog I frequent quite often. Hailing from Sweden (Östhammar to be exact) and previously known as Cobra Rax the band was formed in 2007. After playing locally in 2009 and 2010 the band hit the studio to record their five song debut demo "Speed Demon". With influences listed such as Kreator, Razor, Agent Steel, Overkill, Sadistik Exekution and Sepultura you can get a good sense of what this four piece band is aiming for. With a sound firmly rooted in old-school speed/thrash and a take no prisoners attitude chances are Megalomaniac won't be breaking new ground even if they look to break a few bones in the process. Don't go into this one expecting anything other than good old fashioned headbanging thrash! If you'd like to find out more you can check out any of the links below. Fan's of early thrash will love this one as the production is just right and the band play well crafted fast and furious music that will have you moshing like the good old days.
