Megalopsy is a psytrance live act from Argentina, formed by Matías Benamo aka z1P^ y Nicolas Dibernardo aka Filter… Megalopsy was born from the need to express and explore the pontential violence and hypnotism of music. Their musical background is not that psychedelic… in the past Filter played with several newmetal bands and also played with z1P in a proyect that fusioned newmetal with some grunge touches. Their influences come mainly from the darkside, metal and newmetal, grunge and industrial style. Years later goa and psytrance came into their ears and they just couldnt stop listening.
Around 2001, Filter y z1P managed to get some software synths and sequencers and started making tunes since then in a project they called Megalopsy. At the end of year 2003 they where prepairing their debut live act, a new member joined the megalopsy crew, Li aka "mexican", bringing his twisted brain melodies and rhythms.
After a lot of adventures of all kinds, Li decided to leave Megalopsy. It was a difficult period for everyone and things were quite fucked up for a while but we decided that Megalopsy had to go on. We learned a lot from this guy, our improved a lot after doing music with him, but we got to a point that things were not working between us and it did not make sense to keep on doing it without feeling it. So well, we wish him good luck in his life and we will keep on doing what we enjoy and makes us fell good :).
