20 Sided Vice by Megathruster

Megathruster, the new acoustic nerd rock duo from Chris Waffle of Hot Waffles, released their first album a month ago 20 Sided Vice.

It is a 12 track album with half the tracks about your standard nerd topics such as Oregon Trail, playing fighting games and table-top mountains , and one favorite It’s Rough to be a Hufflepuff about being in Hogwarts lesser house.  All of which I like.  The other half are rather sexual in nature with names like Making Love Like A Geek, Settlers of My Pants, and Fuck Mountain.  Not really my cup of tea in that they too blatant, not really something to blare out in public.  But I will say I Want To Be Your Bruce Campbell is a great love song.   However overall I do recommend this for fans of funny songs that have a rock edge.

They have released two music videos from the album.  The first one is It’s Not Out Yet which is a tongue in check song about fans and Hollywood making movies, and stars real-life superhero Guardian Shield.  The other one is  Other People Playing Minecraft, which is about people watching other people playing video games.

You can get digital copies on iTunes and Bandcamp.   For physical CDs, get them from their website.

After the success of Hot Waffles, and a 1000 mile move in the name of love, Chris Waffle thought he would never write songs again. Then, in the waning summer of 2014, a wise wizard knocked on his door and cast a spell calling him back to music. The skies darkened, the clouds rumbled, there was an 80’s era cartoon transformation sequence, and when he awakened from the fog, Megathruster was born.

They’re coming straight from the Pacific Northwest, and singing from the spring 2016 album release “20 Sided Vice.”

You may have seen him at Flappers, the Improv, on Attack of the Show, America’s Worst Driver, and The People vs. George Lucas. You may have heard him at GenCon, on Dr.Demento’s radio show, KROQ, Kevin Smith’s Smodcastle, or in your dreams. But you’ve never seen and heard him like this.
