Grindcore, hardcore and an obsession with giant monster flicks yields brutal and radioactive results for Kaiju Daisenso. Uniting former members of Helen of Troy, Gospel and others, Kaiju Daisenso crafts a raw, crushing sound that’s as heavy as a certain giant, green lizard. Their most recent effort, Radiation Scars, showcases their sound at its most visceral and aggressive; weaving together bludgeoning, mosh-worthy riffs and atomic fire breath. Grind fans and Japanese monster film geeks can finally come together and mosh gleefully, thanks to this irradiated quartet.
Svbterranean recently caught up with vocalist Matt Gordon and guitarist Gabe Saladino to discuss the new record and nerd out over kaiju films.
