The mythical Richard Wahnfried is actually German synth maestro Klaus Schulze operating under his sole alias. The music of his Wahnfried band was usually somewhat more rock-based then the music of Schulze solo, and MEGATONE, a rare title in the Wahnfried catalog, utilizes its fair share of surging synth-rock sequencers, laserlight guitars, and searing electronic drum patterns.
There's a total of three, near-epic length, high energy tracks here. "Angry Young Boys" features Harald Katzsch's electrifying guitars perched atop Schulze's skyscraping synth designs, while the long-form piece "Rich Meets Max" tangles some awry wah-wah guitar amidst the towering keyboard monoliths and pounding synth-drums. When Schulze's trademark electronic pulsations come in to tear apart the fragmenting rhythms, it's blitzkrieg bop, synth-style. Required headphone listening.
