Double Fist Attack - Daikaiju

from the single Double Fist Attack (2013)

Diakaiju is a Japanesse term for a giant monster of the larger variety.  Think Godzilla, Rodan, Mothra, or Gamera.

Diakaiju is also a band from Huntsville, Alabama.  Here is how this four piece band - that dresses in Peter Criss-styled face paint and super hero uniforms - describe themselves:

Who is Daikaiju???  Premium action heroes deliver most high rocket music!  Special reverb skill combo for full impact!  Loud sonic boom for earful pleasure!  Beautiful radiation of hyper-dimensional springy sound creates divine psychic wind for your special defense!  Worship Psycho-surf band Daikaiju daily for good luck and health!

Psycho-surf.  I dig that term.  It is well suited for the fierce guitar mash that they serve up on their latest single, Double Fist Attack.  The song starts with the drummer bangin' hard on the skins followed by a muscular guitar riff with hardcore overtones.  Then enter the second guitar with beautifully shrilling reverb.  This is surf guitar for head bangers played extremely well.

Breaking down on a back road in the deep south and being accosted by rednecks listening to banjo music is the stuff of scary movies.  When those rednecks are wearing Japanesse theatrical paint and playing hardcore surf guitar, it is an entirely different deal.

  1. Little weird, but I can dig it.

    From Alabama? Wow, things are looking up for the deep south. Though I do like me some good banjo...

    Arigato, 40 Watt-san.
