Album Spotlight : Megosh - Apostasy

Venturing to a Cherokee Indian Reservation in North Carolina for three weeks to write ApostasyMegosh created a powerful collection of songs that highlights the band’s impressive musicality. Their music is melodic with post-progressive elements and frequent forays into the territory of alternative metal, but with an undeniable pop sensibility, heightened byJosh Grosscup’s (Vocals, Guitar) dynamic range, and iconic three-part harmonies with Brian “Finch” Flores (Guitar, Vocals) and David “Derv” Polimene (Bass, Vocals). Megosh somehow fuses these eclectic ingredients into a surprisingly cohesive stew - a sound that is clearly their own. Apostasy also comes with a guest collaboration with vocalistGarret Rapp from The Color Morale on the track “Carrying Fire.”

Baltimore's Megosh exploded on to the scene in late 2011 with set of high-energy intelligent songs. Their music is melodic with post-progressive elements and frequent forays into the territory of alternative metal, but with an undeniable pop sensibility. Megosh somehow fuses these eclectic ingredients into a surprisingly cohesive stew- a sound that is clearly their own. Impressive and complex instrumental material will certainly appeal to the musician but, with Megosh, song craft still reigns and their creative use of rhythm and catchy melodies are certain to captivate a wide audience. On top of all this, the front line serves up tasty three-part harmonies, something rarely heard on today's rock scene.

Apostasy is released on December 16th.
