180 Gram Audiophile Virgin Vinyl LP - Sealed
NOW AVAILABLE ON VINYL!!! The self-titled debut from MEGASUS. Riding forth like thunderbolts cast from the hammer of Thor, the eight hooves of the Megasus burn a trail of ice across the winter sky. Combining elements of heavy metal titans like High on Fire, Slayer, Pentagram, and Karp, Megasus delivers a debut of amazing power and volume with riff after riff of neckbreaking metal fury. The sordid history of Megasus goes something like this: Four dudes who all work for Harmonix (developer of the world's most popular video games, Guitar Hero and Rock Band) decided to assemble a metal band of wild power. Featuring longtime Providence musiciansmost notably BRIAN GIBSON, bassist for noise-rock duo LIGHTNING BOLT (here showing off his own crushing drum skills)the group set out simply to have fun and write killer heavy metal songs. With two tracks, Megasus and Red Lottery, featured in Rock Band and Guitar Hero 2 long before this album's release, the band has already generated a large awareness of their music. Originally released in early 2009 in an edition of 200 copies, the band has repressed the vinyl to accompany a CD version on 20 Buck Spin (to be released 11/24/2009). Packaged in a gatefold sleeves with a 24x36 poster, a sticker and a download card. Second pressing of 300 copies.

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP
These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.
Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
