Portland band Megaton Leviathan aren't another doom metal band, exactly. The droning, cavernous songs have just the right amount of razor-wire edge to give their downtempo sludge a crisper sheen, brightening the scorched earth with shoegaze-y, infinite echo and distinctly human singing from vocalist/guitarist/keyboardist Andrew James Costa. Their debut album Water Wealth Hell on Earth is a four-song beast, with the title track split into two lengthy segments, and a 33-minute finale in the form of the amorphous drone of "A Slow Death in D Minor." Water Wealth Hell on Earth is available in a limited edition of 500 from Spanish label Feretro Records, and tonight marks the hometown CD release show. Record collectors might want to get their copy before they’re all gone: Megaton Leviathan are already talking about re-tracking the drums with the band’s original drummer Matt Brim for a re-release of the record at some point down the road.
