The Megas Get Equipped
Record Label: Dr. Light Studios (self-released)
Release Date: Jan 2008



While the majority of bands who devote their musical talents to recreating the music from the NES classics usually focus on instrumentals, The Megas break the mold and feature vocals that tell the story of Mega Man 2 to a backdrop of indie rock and power-pop. As cheesy as this may sound, the band actually pulls this off well on their debut, Get Equipped.

The album starts off by recapping the end of the first Mega Man game. A quick rendition of the stage select music is followed by a song for each of the 8 Robot Masters (Bosses). Each song contains familiar sounds from the respective stages while the lyrics are told from the evil robots’ points of view. The final song finds an introspective Mega Man pondering his existence.

If you have ever played the original Mega Man NES games, you need to check out The Megas. This is the perfect album for those who have always longed to listen to music about Mega Man. Get Equipped evokes memories of spending hours controlling the blue bomber through stages and will make you want to hook up your NES and start playing again.


Tracklist
  • The Beginning of the End (Wily’s Castle)
  • I Want to be the One (Dr-Wily 1-2)
  • A Fate Forged in Steel (Enemy Selected)
  • The Annihilation of Monsteropolis (Airman)
  • Metal Dance (Metal Man)
  • Carved From Mighty Oak (Woodman)
  • Promise of Redemption (Bubbleman)
  • Man on Fire (Heatman)
  • Blue Like You (Flashman)
  • The Quick and the Blue (Quickman)
  • Programmed to Fight (Crashman)
  • Lamentations of a War Machine (End Song)
For Fans Of: Mega Man 2, NES, The Advantage, The Minibosses
