Twitter/Facebook album sleeve banner of the week - Ghost B.C. Infestissumam. This is the damnedest album I’ve bought in awhile - it’s marketed at extreme metal folks but is NOT extreme in anyway, barely even metal but certainly enjoyable. It’s…a weird sort of circusy symphonic progressive psychedelic disco chanty ball that doesn’t always stick (the latter half is spotty). It’s more of a problem to work out than an album to throw on for friends, but I’m digging the HELL out of it. 4/5.
I would say 3/5, but I can’t stop giggling thinking about Papa Emeritius and the Ghouls roller-skating to Year Zero in a choreographed number.
(I’ll say this tho, you get a million dollars to make an album don’t pull this digipak bullshit on me. Hire Baizley or someone who gives a shit about packaging, do it right)
I am primarily an artist since my skills as a writer indicate borderline illiteracy and the drawbacks of the public education system, but I did a review of Gama Bomb’s The Terror Tapes for fun on Amazon. Spoiler: I liked it. Click here to read my fumbling attempt to sound like a music journalist.
The brilliant Shout! Factory have just announced, having given us superb complete series releases of ULTRA SEVEN and JOHNNY SOKKO AND HIS FLYING ROBOT, that the complete ULTRA Q is coming our way too, scheduled for the thirteenth of August!
““For the next 30 minutes, your eyes will leave your body and arrive in this strange moment in time…”
In the world of Ultra Q, the very fabric of nature is warped into a state of unbalance, and all manner of strange phenomenon and unearthly creatures threaten the very future of mankind! On the scene are a world-renowned scientist and his young friends — a female photojournalist, an aviator, and his co-pilot — who investigate these supernatural menaces. When sheer military might is futile, the intrepid team comes to the rescue, armed solely with their ingenuity and scientific prowess to quell these malevolent forces and restore the balance of nature.
The precursor toUltraman,Ultra Qis a seminal science-fantasy television series in the monstrous mold ofThe Outer LimitsandThe X Files. As deeply ingrained in Japan’s pop culture asThe Twilight Zoneis in America’s,Ultra Qis available for the first time ever in its entirety on DVD!Eiji Tsuburaya, , the visual effects wizard behindGodzilla,Rodan, andMothra, creates a spectacular cavalcade of bizarre beasts and mass mayhem in each and every episode of this wildly popular series. Never before broadcast in North America,Ultra Qstars Kenji Sahara (Rodan), Hiroko Sakurai (Ultraman) and Yasuhiko Saijo (Son Of Godzilla).”

I personally am ecstatic. An English-friendly ULTRA Q release is an absolute dream, and something I thought I’d never see.
