On this occasion we go to Sardinia to meet MEGAHERA a band whose name tells us al lot about its spirit. MEGAHERA is in fact the fusion of two words: MEGA (Great) and HERA (Era). They are a unique band - a true revelation - that seems to have been catapulted from the past into the present day ... a modern personification of the 'unforgettable NWOBHM (New Wave of British Heavy Metal) that is, the movement by which Thrash Metal originated. Megahera was born on October 3, 2008, by the will of singer/guitarist Mario Marras and his insatiable desire to bring back that magic atmosphere of the 80s sound.
Immediately after giving form and chosing a name for his band, Mario starts off in search of his band mates, testing the waters to find musicians suitable to the music style he has in mind, but that at the same time would shere both the same ideals and the same passion and tenacity for the band. From then on, the idea finally takes shape with the arrival of drummer Roberto Piu, Antonio Borgesi 'The Wizard' on bass and Marco Cossu Lead & Rhythm Guitar. Sothey start 'to juggle notes and riffs inspired by great bands like Black Sabbath, early Metallica, Saxon, Motorhead, etc ....Megahera starts off really well, with a series of dates all around the island on a tour by the name of' The Infernal Sardinian Tour ', and the recording of their first demo, entitled' Lethal Noise of Violence 'from which you can hear their pure and edgy NWOBHM style. You can also see them, in their videoclip released in June 2010.The band goes through a very positive phase, which leads them to get very well known both nationally and internationally, obtaining very favorable reviews. Their outstanding talent, gets them to participate to the ' Events Metal Fest ', a competition that has become a traditional appointment for all metalheads in Sardinia, in which they win the final session, and get to play alongside Paul Di'Anno (ex-Iron Maiden), who happened to be special guest in that 'edition of the fest.A few months later, they win another contest, the 'Summer Rock Festival', which allows them to cross the Italian border, and perform live in London UK.Here starts a period of constat live performances, supported and thoroughly appreciated by their fans, who follow them around with great affection and support.CURRENTLY IS READY THEIR FIRST ALBUM UNDER MY GRAVEYEARD PRODUCTION'S LABEL.--------------------------------------------------------------------
MEGAHERA band can be considered a real reality for all they created referring to 80’s. The famous N.W.O.B.H.M. that is the moviment from which took origin the Thrash Metal bands such as: Black Sabbath, Saxon, Motorhead, Diamond Head, Angel Witch, Raven, Anvil, Def Leppard, till the Venom, the former Metallica ('82-'88) in the end Exodus, Anthrax, Testament, Annihilator ext..Are their source of inspiration during the half of 80’s a great era was over. We never will have a similar period.
MEGAHERA band is an anticonventional expression of rebellion. They try to express not only what previously expressed Heavy Metal bands, Holy Monster of the conteporany music, but also, they are a link for all who had their life underlined by this great period.
