Baltimore, MD based Alternative Rock artist and multi-instrumentalist has released the surreal, official music video for his single “Sheep of Doom,” off of his newest album, Triple Phoenix. Shot by “Mike,” Triple Phoenix was recorded and mixed at The Hot Box in Baltimore by MEGAZILLION himself.
“Megazillion has struggled with sleep his whole life. From nightmares and sleepwalking as young as 3, from sleep paralysis, recurring haunted visions, restless legs and good old fashioned anxiety, this song and video try to find catharsis in it’s expression and creation and maybe is enough to connect with those that also struggle with this. That or just get down with the banger!” -Megazillion

Megazillion is an artist/musician in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. The project officially began in early 2020 under the dome of Covid lockdown. Paul “Megazillion” Joyce has a well worn resume of underground but significant bands and over a decade of work as a film composer and had some loose MZ demoes going back as far as 2017. Film work and other band commitments (F City, Dark Water Transit, Compression, Consumer Culture, Mondawmen) kept MZ on the shelf. Once lockdown hit the realization came rather fast that it was time to finally put this epic project into motion.
Late summer 2020 they began putting together the first official album “Triple Phoenix”. Recorded and mixed by Megazillion, the process took a year and half. 30 minutes of 7 tracks (one being the 12 minute “We All Wanna Belong”) ranging from Shoegaze, Krautrock, Post Punk, Electro, Industrial, Alternative and even a little doom thrown in, the mixes are very dense, huge even. Lots of layering and interesting colors. Then it was mastered in 2022 at the famous Abbey Road Studios by Alex Wharton (Pixies, My Bloody Valentine) and released December 2022 on Big Curve Music. Initial feedback has been absolutely stellar.
To celebrate the release, the now official five member live band, had a very successful album release at the famous Ottobar in Baltimore, MD. To further grow interest in the album and to build a strong following the band is planning to play anywhere it can in 2023. Also, a series of videos for “Triple Phoenix” are in production with the first being a video for the stirring track “Sheep of Doom”.
Megazillion also produces almost all the video content for the various releases on the Megazillion Youtube channel.
Watch out. We got plans.
