Megora are an unsigned Power/Thrash Metal band from Basel-Country. They formed in 1990 and shortly after released two demos The Fog and Moonstill Waters. In 1994, still unsigned, they released their first and only full-length to date called Waiting, an enjoyable but very less known little record in the vein of Flotsam And Jetsam or Artillery. Until their split-up in 2000 they released two more demos and an EP called Illusions in 1997. Impressive is that this little EP has guest vocals from Mike Howe. Mike Howe? Yes, that Mike Howe, vocalist from Metal Church. Don't ask me how they could pursuade him to sing on their EP. Anyway, around 2009 they decided to reunite and added Sven Vormann on the drums. Interesting is that Sven played drums in Destruction from 1999 to 2001, and was part of their legendary comeback All Hell Breaks Loose.
Lately I felt like starting a blog to keep the viewers of my website active and also offer something active and moving for them with interest articles and thoughts about my and your love of thrash metal. My first idea was to introduce you to some obscure thrash coming from my home country Switzerland. And as easy as it is everything is already said. Enjoy!
First of all I have to say there is practically nothing to find out about these guys. They formed in 1995 in Aargau. They independently released their one and only full-length Spacecake (picture on the left) in 1996, including 7 tracks at a running time of about 37 minutes. Bassist Simon Marty was also active in another Swiss thrash band Braindead and drummer Christian Traussnig was active in two other bands as well. About the other members there is anything to find and also this little record seems to be unfindable. I heard someone say it is in the vein of Heathen or Vio-Lence though so I'm definitely excited listening to it if I should find it.
