Bald Eagle

BALD EAGLE is a band from Columbia, Mo, they started in 2003. They played their last show in July of 2009. Sometime in the summer of 2012 they decided to start playing together again. Ex- members of Amputee Set, Subscribe, The One Inch Punch, Souls, Carry On Killaway, Quatermast Wind, The Foundry Field Recordings etc. etc. Currently members play in Coward and New Tongues. BALD EAGLE are a strange and mysterious brew who's brand of rock madness is practically unmatched by any bands hailing from the big city. They play fast, guitar driven, musical equivalents of muscle spasms or brain aneurysms, one might equate to the groundbreaking sounds of Swing Kids or Nation of Ulysses. Some might call this, just not givin' a f*ck. Still others might see this as a dizzying assault of technicality and full frontal nudity. BALD EAGLE are fans of, and draw influences from, indie-punk stars Drive Like Jehu and Hoover, and 70's psychedelic legends Deep Purple and Yes. Most songs coalesce with mixtures of improvisational jazz and European hardcore (see the Refused / JR Ewing) and whose subject matter include things like cobras, eating pizza, fear of sharks, The Princess Bride, transvestites, and shady, creepy people. What's more, BALD EAGLE seriously like ripping-it live.

Reawakened. Slowly now, we're timid. .. .. "MEGAZILLA…put most of the recent rudderless post-rock and stoner bands to shame… nimble, tumultuous drum crashes….stirring slacker vocals and nimble bass rifferama. THE MELVINS and LIGHTNING BOLT are two quality bands. If you dig 'em, let MEGAZILLA kick you in the teeth for thirty minutes."-album review on .. .. "The most impressive thing about Megazilla's performance was the amount of people who were captivated by their show. during the quiet parts of songs there was not a single voice. All eyes were on these two creating a great warm up for the eventual headliners Mastodon." -Show review by Billy Schu of Foundry Fielding Recordings.. .. "I had organs rattling that I didn't know existed!" -Adam Powers. .. .. "MegaZilla: The first band to make me stuff paper towels in my ears, ever! Good Shit!!" -Wipey .. ..Vox Magazine's MegaZilla write up, get your dictionary..! ..
