[Music] Daikaiju - Daikaiju
As you're cruising on the water, you feel there's something off. As the tides get higher, the ground starts trembling. Slowly out of the sea grows the figurine of a giant, turtle-like monster. You desperately try to get out of the water with your fellow surfers and, once back on the beach, stunned watching the monstrosity as it arises from the waters. Yelling loudly, it walks up the beach. as you take distance, you hear the shriek of something else. A huge lizard, or you could even call it a dragon, appears from the mountains. As the turtle monster noticed him, his attention diverted to the other monster, charging upon it. As you regain control, you watch these collossifight, with your mind trying to handle the awesomeness of the situation. Fuck yeah!
Daikaiju is a Huntsville, Alabama based surf rock band.Formed in 1999, the band produced two albums so far, with their self-titled album released in 2004 and the second one, Phase 2, released recently in september 2010. The band consists of 4 members, each hiding their identity with a mask and a nickname.
This album was a big suprise. As I started up the cd, the first track 'Daikaiju Die!' blasted me away in this rollercoaster ride. As the album continued, it kept going with this huge energy, while keeping the songs fresh with awesome riffs and drumrolls. As the tracks fly by, you end up at the last song, which is some kind of mix of surf and ska, also being three times longer then the average song on the album. This end of the ride is abit softer, but that doesn't make it less awesome. As you arrive at the end of the ride, you'll beg for one more go!
