Megalomatic + Lion On Tiger


Fresh from their single release Coil via Milky Bomb Records, a headline show at The Cathouse, supporting Soulfly and a UK tour. Megalomaticbring the riffs to Bloc+ for an intimate show. Support comes from the incredible Lion On Tiger from Edinburgh.



Powerful, progressive, face melting riffs packed full of passion and controlled emotion.

Formed in Glasgow, 2013, by guitarist/vocalist Craig McKenzie, drummer Jamie Barnes and bassist Ben Reffin, Megalomatic (Milky Bomb Records) sing about real life issues and they do so with equal parts muscle and heart. With an average age of twenty-one,
the power trio, whose music might come across as a mixture of Biffy Clyro by way of Mastodon, have proven over the course of their young career, that heavy music can have profound emotional resonance. While Megalomatic can play it dark, fast and heavy, their songs have surprising breaks and shifts that catch the listener off guard and beg for repeat listens.

"I'm not seeing a bunch of Biffy, but it is wicked!"
Daniel P. Carter, Radio 1 Rock Show

"...ferocious, riff-tastic tour-de-force..."
Martin Williams, Evening Times

“Electrifyingly atmospheric…”
Miff Morris, Louder Than War

"Fans of Mastodon, Black Peaks and Reuben should take notice..."
James Fitzgerald, MOSH

Lion On Tiger

Lion On Tiger are a 4 piece alternative rock band from Edinburgh. They are characterised by intense live performances that marry guitar centric melodic compositions and crashing riffery. Vocally they are volatile in terms of delivery which juxtaposes their willingness to delve into humourous and often times self deprecating content. Their debut EP, 'Quickly, Before The Rush' was released last year and they expect to have new material out in the coming weeks, as indicated by the recent release of the music video for 'Hugging High'.
