This long-running unit (discontinued in 1999) was one of the first to be associated with Sweden's revered Cold Meat Industry label. Somewhere between Archon Satani, In Slaughter Natives and Brighter Death Now, Megaptera is a reflection of a time when insanity, violence, lies, deceit, war, disease and death rule the planet.

Megaptera were undisputable kings of so-called "death industrial" genre. In 10 years they released a number of albums and contributed many tracks to compilations. So why do they stand out among their contemporaries ? Its because of sense of atmosphere that they were able to create - the one where you could almost feel nasty odor coming out of your speakers. On the downside, their obsession with darkness and death can be overwhelming at times, but I think that those who buy Megaptera records will know what its about. Step inside, if you're bold enough.
