Get Equipped (2008)

Get Equipped is a studio album by The Megas, recorded in December 2006 to December 2007 and released in January 2008. The album contains cover versions of music from the Capcom video game, Mega Man 2. It uses almost every song found in the original game, excluding the intro and boss fight music. Every song except the first and third contain lyrics that expand on the original video game's story.

This is the band's first album. Previously the band released demo CDs entitled "Demo Get" with different covers on them at shows and events.

About information

About the album

Get Equipped is a product of Dr. Light Studios, a studio that the Megas constructed in order to lay down the tracks for their first and future albums.

The album focuses on the story found in Mega Man 2. The new compositions feature original lyrics and new sections which blend seamlessly with the original compositions.

The band kept track of sales for the 50 states in the United States on a map, filling each state with the color blue once the album was purchased by someone in that state.

The album was made available for purchase on their official website and when performing live shows.

The artwork on the front of the album shows a Mega that represents Mega Man in front of stylized monsters that represent the 8 Robot Masters featured in the game. The inside art shows The Megas on the inside cover and figures that represent the 8 Robot Masters surrounding a figure of Mega Man behind the CD. The rear art shows an exploded technical illustration of the arm cannon that Mega Man uses.
