REVIEW

April 06, 2015

Compared to other CD releases by The Bukimisha Weird Secret Society this CD is quite different. First of all there are no hidden tracks on this CD. Second, there is no a cappella singing. Instead the CD is comprised of orchestral music that relies heavily on various horns as the title "Horn Of King Ghidorah" might suggest. The four tracks here are actually suites of music comprised of music found in various movies that King Ghidorah (aka King Ghidrah) appeared in as can be seen in the title translations below.

Having this music done "a cappella" is just amazing to hear and very well done.
