A look back: "Kaiju Rising" by Stratos


Today marks the 5th anniversary of the mp3 release of "Kaiju Rising" by Stratos. "Kaiju Rising" was the first single released and is track number 2 on the full-length CD, Kaiju Kaos: The Soundtrack, Vol. 01 (2012).

Inspiration for this song comes from all the expected places: Godzilla, Cloverfield, Mechabot, etc. This song is, in many ways, a sequel to "Triunedon Awakes" from Mecha Vs Kaiju - The Soundtrack (Bailey Records, 2007). "Kaiju Rising" was written and produced by Stratos.

"Kaiju Rising" features a dark and ambient intro that continually builds as creature sounds are revealed. While this is an entirely new composition many of the sounds are borrowed from "Triunedon Awakes". This song is meant to be a soundscape for the three-headed dragon-like monster that lords over the deep in the world of Kaiju Kaos but monster lovers and/or games masters can enjoy this song and use it for whatever imagery is created within their own minds' eye.

Kaiju Kaos: The Soundtrack, Vol.01 is part of the Futuristic Universe catalog (future / sci-fi music) of Bailey Records Composition and Sound Design. Additional Futuristic Universe catalog releases include Mecha Vs. Kaiju - The Soundtrack (Bailey Records, 2007) and Rezolution - The Soundtrack (Bailey Records, 2009).

Theme = Triunedon, lord of the deep, emerges and he's ticked!

"Kaiju Rising" is composed and arranged by Stratos of Bailey Records Composition and Sound Design - the team that brought you the Origins Award-nominated Universe87 Campaign Setting Soundtrack (Bailey Records, 2005).
