Megasus is a Heavy Metal band, formed by members of Lightning Bolt and ex members of Amazing Royal Crowns, Laurels and Scared Stiffs. In mid 2006, Ryan Lesser (Laurels), Jason Kendall (Amazing Royal Crowns) and Paul Lyons (Scared Stiffs) invited Dare Matheson from Made In Mexico to play drums for a recording of Red Lottery as a submission for the Playstation 2 game Guitar Hero II. After recording Red Lottery, Megasus lost Matheson and gained Lightning Bolt bassist Brian Gibson as the new full time drummer.
Megasus quickly became one of the more controversial acts on the Guitar Hero release, polarizing audiences with the game's only inclusion of slow, doomy metal.
The group's sound is as much influenced by heavy metal acts such as Electric Wizard and Black Sabbath as it is by other Providence Noise bands. The band's sound is driven by haphazard, non-traditional drumming and ultra-low, detuned, fuzzed guitar and bass.
