Theme = A thematic action song for Special Mission Force.

"Defending the Planet" is track number 3 on the full-length CD, Kaiju Kaos: The Soundtrack, Vol. 01 (Bailey Records, 2012) and is meant to be used as a theme song of sorts for the heroic human faction known as Special Mission Force.  Inspiration for this song comes from all the expected places: Ultraman, G.I. Joe, Mechabot, Power Rangers, etc. "Defending the Planet" was written and produced by Stratos and features guitars by Trevor Peters.

"Defending the Planet" features an energetic tempo and upbeat arrangement and is meant to be a musical accompaniment for Kaiju Kaos: The Miniatures Game (Bailey Records, 2011).  The composition is generic enough that hopefully Mech lovers and/or games masters can enjoy 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).

"Defending the Planet" 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).
