Run for your lives, it’s Godzilla!

Actually, don’t run. Stay. Pull up a seat and order a latte even, cuz we’ve got a lot of ground to cover. A little moth told me that you’re as big of a loserweiner as much of a Godzilla fanatic as I am, so boy howdy do I have some good news for you. Like the three-headed Ghidorah, I’m going to shoot lightning beams of info at you from my three gaping monster maws! Prepare yourself!


Music

Sunday night I was sifting through Bandcamp looking for Godzilla-related bands to cover like I do every Sunday night. You guys were such colossal fans of our last Kaiju adventure that I wanted to be sure to bring you some skreeeeeoooooonky goodies again! Thankfully, my quest to unlock the ancient secrets at the shrine of King Caesar were successful, and I have unearthed two excellent, albeit not very metal bands for you to love and embrace with childlike wonder.

________________

First up is Bovachevo with their instrumental mathcore album Godzilla. Picture a punkier Slint or a vocal-less The Jesus Lizard, and you’re on the right track. Godzilla is 7 tracks of chaotic, rhythmic rock that sounds like Biollante smashing a bunch of buildings together with her numerous vine appendages, laying waste to the countryside. It’s fast; it’s slow. It’s sloppy and tight. It’s as predictable as Godzilla’s mood, and I dig it. Rampage your way over to Bandcamp and download it for FREE! Also, give the boys in Bovachevo a stab on Facebook while you’re at it.

________________

Next up is the self-proclaimed experimental surf rockers Godzilla Black. I only noticed a few tracks where that title was apt, but what I did find a was a whole lot of weird. You guys know how much I love weird. The Great Terror is like some horrible, radiation-spawned nightmare amalgam of King Kong percussion, acid trip vocals, and strikingly daring pop sensibilities. I think the Futurians must have traveled back in time to fuse Tweak BirdThe Mars Volta, and Humanfly together into an abominable, indomitable golden dragon of shrieking fury and disarming fervor. If you’re like me and down with inexplicable time-traveling theories, stab this Bandcamp link and mosey on over to Facebook to toss the guys a like.

________________

Lastly, and just in case you never checked it out, I wanted to share with you the excellent title track from last year’s Godzilla motion picture, written by one Mr. Alexandre Desplat. I recently compared something we covered here in the Toilet to this soundtrack, but I can’t for the life of me remember what it was, nor am I going to slog through my voluminous disqus history to find out. Oh well. Get prehistoric with this track and let me know if you remember what the hell I’m referencing in the comments.


Film

Godzilla fans should be frothing at the mouth with the news we’ve received over the last few months. Not only did Legendary, the American company currently wrangling Big G, announce that a sequel to Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla is definitely going to be stomping the yard in 2018, but it might also feature three more Toho fan-favorite Kaiju, namely, Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah. I’m a fan of the new Kaiju (the M.U.T.O.s) Legendary created to throw down with the King of the Monsters for the 2014 film, but it will be neat to see how the American company re-imagines those three classic critters. You can get more details on that film by stabbing here!

However, Godzilla purists may be even more excited by the fact that Toho, Godzilla’s parent company and trademark holders across the Pacific, have announced that they plan on releasing another Godzilla film in 2016, ostensibly as a stop-gap to tide fans over in 2018 (but likely moreso to cash in on that sweet American monster movie hype cash). This will be Toho’s first Godzilla film since 2004’s lukewarm Godzilla: Final Wars. For those unfamiliar with Toho Kaiju films, expect a lot less CGI and a lot more rubber suits. I can’t wait.


Literature

Lastly, but certainly not leastly, IDW comics announced late last week that they will be unleashing a new Godzilla mini-series of comics called Godzilla in Hell. yes, you read that correctly. Godzilla is going to hell. And maybe punching the Prince of Darkness in his smug face. It will probably be as ridiculous as it sounds, but IDW has a great track record with Godzilla comics, coming off the back of the excellent (for Godzilla fans) Godzilla: Rulers of Earth series and tapping some extremely talented writers and artists. You can get more details about who’s involved over at Dread Central. I’m going to leave you with a teaser image of the mini-series because it is the epitome of metal.


So, does any of this excite you? Are you a big kaiju boy or a little kaiju boy? Let me know how I’m never getting laid ever in the comments below.

      • Dr. Dubz

        Umm, the closest would be A) king Kong B) Sanda and Gaira, the Frankenstein monsters (he fights them in the Rulers of Earth comics), or C) a giant Japanese Oni statue monster named Gekido Jin (fought in one of the Darkhorse comics).

      Austin Powers, top series.

  • For some reason, the Godzilla games scared the crap out of me as a little dude so I particularly enjoyed that creepypasta.

    • Oh, and Godzilla vs. Hell is like the best concept any human has ever imagined.

      • Godzilla tail-whipping his way through The 9 Circles is ingenious and I can’t believe it’s taken this long.

        • Dr. Dubz

          There were rumors at one point of a Godzilla vs. The Devil film. I remember reading about it on Toho Kingdom or somewhere similar. The project supposedly got scrapped, and Godzilla vs. Destoroyah was released instead.

          However, I just read the other day that the initial rumors of Godzilla vs. The Devil were a hoax, and that entry is not longer on Toho Kingdom.

          This blew my mind when I was just a little Dubs. I thought it was the funniest thing in the world.

          • Scrimm

            Me too. Wracking my brain trying to remember where I first saw it.

          • Dr. Dubz

            I’m pretty sure I saw it on a compilation VHS of clips from movies with monsters/dinosaurs. Something like, “Real Dinosaurs of the Movies” or “Hollywood’s Greatest Dinosaurs” or something.

          • Scrimm

            My mind is telling me it was in a theater before a movie started but that was so long ago who knows.

          • Dr. Dubz

            I remember being really blown away by some of those old stop-motion movies like King Kong, The Lost World, and the Beast from 20,000 Fathoms. There really was something special to what effects wizards like Ray Harryhausen were doing.

          • Dumptruck Full Of Nose Hair

            Can’t forget the original Clash Of The Titans (far superior to the new ones, imo). If you like stop motion, check out Quay Bros. sometime.

  • Formerly Known As Oli Sykes

    Speaking of Kaiju, Pacific Rim is still the best yankee attempt at making one.
    Anyone who says that its the new Godzilla is lying.

    • Dr. Dubz

      I loved both Godzilla 14 and Pacific Rim, but they were very different movies.

      • Formerly Known As Oli Sykes

        Eh, trve enough, especially considering the lack of Godzilla in Godzilla.

        • Dumptruck Full Of Nose Hair

          Yeah, that was my main complaint. That and I don’t wanna see Godzilla helping mankind. I’m there to watch him ruining shit, with a generous amount of lamentations in the background. Hence why I loved Cloverfield.

          • Dr. Dubz

            Have you watched Godzilla, Mothra, and King Ghidorah? he was definitely evil in that film.

          • Dumptruck Full Of Nose Hair

            Not in quite some time. I was most likely a Supreme Leader In Training/Diapers when I saw those.

          • Dr. Dubz

            It’s relatively recent. Came out in 2001.

    • i can confidently say that i’ve seen Pacific Rim more times than y’all combined.

      • Dr. Dubz

        One of these weekends when I have enough free time I’m going to watch the 1998 Godzilla film and the 2014 film back to back.

        • Formerly Known As Oli Sykes

          Are you a masochist, why would you put yourself through the pain and suffering of the 1998 Godzilla film.

          • Dr. Dubz

            Sometimes the pain is a solid reminder of how bad things still could be.

          • KJM

            As you can see(above post), I suffered actual pain in order to see it.

        • KJM

          I sprained my ankle on my way to see the 1998 one. I still went and saw it anyway.

          • Dr. Dubz

            I was just a wee Dubs when it came out (10 years old), and I thought it ruled. As an adult, i can see that it did not rule.

      Saw it back home a few months before I left, after smoking up and drinking with about a dozen friends. Good times and definitely tickled my nerdy bone!

  • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

    I prefer Gamera.

    • Dr. Dubz

      I like Gamera, but he was always Daiei’s attempt to make money off the Godzilla train. One of the better attempts though. Still, he’s no king of the monsters.

      • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

        I loved the remakes.

        • Dr. Dubz

          The Gamera trilogy from the 90s? it’s pretty good. Doesn;t hold a candle to Godzilla vs. Desteroyah, though.

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            I love Godzilla. I agree with that statement but nothing equal the classic Godzilla films. They’ve been re released on Blu Ray and are at Best Buy.

          • Dr. Dubz

            I’ve been slowly picking them up over the years. I can’t decide which I like more, the Showa era or the Heisei era. Both are very different, but they’re both also better than the Millenium era.

          • Dumptruck Full Of Nose Hair

            They lost me at the baby Godzilla stuff. It was around that time I got into Ultraman.

  • Guacamole Jim

    All of these bands are getting me right in my little kaiju pants.

  • The God Emperor of Mankind

    Faithful servant Dubz, I know of some monsters.

    • Dr. Dubz

      Like Great Unclean Ones?

      • The God Emperor of Mankind

        They’re just a drop in the bucket. Although more liken to make one soil themselves just upon hearing of them, and then said soil gives them typhoid fever which produces plague zombies.

  • Dr. Dubz

    So, uh, did anyone actually jam Bovachevo or Godzilla Black? I think they’re both rad.

    • Guacamole Jim

      I DID

      • Guacamole Jim

        ME

    • Shrimp in a Pizza Box

      I did, but they’re definitely not my jam sadly.

      • Dr. Dubz

        This is a forgivable offense, Ebirah.

    • Sir Tapir the Based

      I can definitely dig Bovachevo.

      • Dr. Dubz

        That album is free too! And not the kind of free that isn’t actually free.

  • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

    Yup.

    • Dr. Dubz

      Yup?

      • Sir Tapir the Based

        Yup is a pretty good Finnish band

  • OldMetalHead

    I saw my first Godzilla movie at the ($1) theater in 1974 – Godzilla vs. Megalon. I’ve seen most of the other movies at some point including the Mothras and the new ones. Good stuff!

    • Dr. Dubz

      There are only a few I haven’t seen. I still haven’t managed to track down Godzilla 1985 (The Return of Godzilla) and a I think one other from the Heisei era and one from the Millenium era.

  • The Beargod

    I juag now read this actually. And I’d like to say your never getting laid W, but we both know that’s a lie.

    (That Falcon wasn’t attacking you, it was trying to bond with you, you silly troglodyte.)

    • Dr. Dubz

      I don’t think I have the right equipment to properly produce a clutch of eggs.

      • The Beargod

        Maybe he didn’t want eggs/kids.
        Or maybe it was a Falconette, *shrugs* you’re the doc, you ought to know these things.

    • Dr. Dubz

      This probably isn’t even the weirdest part of Godzilla vs, the Smog Monster.

      • KJM

        Me and my ex used to get high as fuck and watch this movie.

        • Dr. Dubz

          It sort of weirded me out as a kid. I haven’t seen it in years.

  • Dumptruck Full Of Nose Hair

    Had to check out the Bovachevo one just for the Jesus Lizard reference. Good stuff! 8/10 tendies. Reminds me more of Season To Risk without vocals than Jesus Lizard though.

    *cues this one for Tyree*

  • Dumptruck Full Of Nose Hair

    And speaking of giant monsters!

    PS, Cloverfield >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Godzilla (especially the new one and that god awful one from 1998).

    • Dr. Dubz

      I’ve actually never seen Cloverfield, but the general impression I got was that it had vomit-inducing shakey-cam and didn’t show the monster a whole lot.

      • KJM

        It had it’s moments but I’ll never sit through it again.

      • Dumptruck Full Of Nose Hair

        The monster is shown in glimpses through alot of the film, which was the point, which is to give it a sense of mystery and unknown dread. The camera does have a bit of shakies to it, but not nearly as bad that disaster Abrams did about the kids with telepathic powers.

    • KJM

      Monsters are real! Danger can happen!!

      • Dumptruck Full Of Nose Hair

        My fave is Kung Fu Chicken Noodle and Los Plantanos.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      The new Godzilla was a fucking huge letdown. A stupid, stupid movie.

      • Dr. Dubz

        Boo on you.

        • CyberneticOrganism

          It was just so disappointingly meh. The predictable ‘Murica troop plot, the scientist losing his wife plot, the cliched Japanese/Pearl Harbor/father’s watch plot, plus the fact that Godzilla is barely in it.

          • Dr. Dubz

            You’re dead to me, Robit (actually, I fully acknowledge that my judgment is clouded).

          • CyberneticOrganism
          • Dr. Dubz

            Tis difficult for me to judge something Godzilla related from a critical standpoint. I liked Godzilla well before any of my other nerdy obsessions, including metal and the Legend of Zelda.

  • Stanley

    I don’t do cover versions very often, but when I do, I Fu.

    Bring on the fuzz.

    • Dr. Dubz

      This would go well paired with The Smog Monster

    • Dumptruck Full Of Nose Hair

      Damn, I haven’t heard anything of their’s since ’95.

      • Stanley

        Of the early albums, I’ve only got Return to Earth and Action Is Go. I felt that they hadn’t yet caught their stride. Eatin’ Dust and King of The Road are the highlights for me but then came California Crossing and with it, the same album over and over again only more poppy and less fuzzy each time. King of the Road came out in ’99. There are some great jams on there. They also did a cover of Devo’s Freedom of choice.

    What’s the go with that self-proclaimed ‘experimental surf-rockers’ sounding nothing like surf rock @disqus_kqxyUNPxty:disqus ? Sounds more like a poppy shoegaze electronic Faith No More. Bovachevo sound interesting.

    • Dr. Dubz

      I dunno, man. There were one or two songs where I could hear the surf, but I couldn’t on most of them. Maybe their other material has more.

      • Lacertilian

        some bands these days just chuck ‘experimental’ in front of their genre to try and cover all bases.
        Same way that Metallica were experimental disco.
