THE RETURN OF GODZILLA - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack LP (On-Sale Info)
In conjunction with TOHO, we are insanely excited to be bringing you our HEISEI series of GODZILLA soundtracks, starting with the classic THE RETURN OF GODZILLA, the 16th film of the series and a direct sequel to the original 1954 GOJIRA.
One of our favorite movies of this era, it features a darker and more somber tone than previous films, with an incredible score by Reijiro Koroku. The artwork for the vinyl is by Henry Abrams, whose stunning and intricate pencil drawings capture the majesty and beauty of Godzilla perfectly.

The package features a pop-up gatefold and is a numbered edition of 2500. As excited as we are for this first release, we cannot contain ourselves for what else is in store. TOHO has allowed us to delve deep into their broader catalog, so be on the lookout for mushroom mayhem, Giant Crabs, Cuttlefish, deadly Pteranodons, and so much more!

As always, new releases go on sale at 12PM CT on Wednesdays.

THE RETURN OF GODZILLA - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack LP

He's back! After nine years away from the big screen, the Big G reappeared for his 30th anniversary in THE RETURN OF GODZILLA. Produced by Godzilla's creator Tomoyuki Tanaka and directed by Koji Hashimoto, the picture returns the uber-kaiju to the ultimate antagonist he was always intended to be. Watch as he devastates Tokyo after being resurrected by an underwater volcano, with a dramatic and explosive musical score by Reijiro Koroku!

Having previously worked with Studio Ghibli's Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata, Koroku was the perfect choice to score the Big G's triumphant return, creating no less than three themes for everybody's favorite kaiju.

Listen to the rumbling low frequencies and powerful brass attacks, as he rav
ages a power plant and fights the Japanese Self Defence Forces (JSDF), and swoon to the love theme for Maki and Naoko. Koroku also wrote exciting pieces for the JSDF and the Super-X, a particular machine designed to fight Godzilla. Still, it's his respect and reverence for the Big G that makes THE RETURN OF GODZILLA such a success.

The score ends with vocalists The Star Sisters lamenting Godzilla's disappearance, cementing the place he has in our hearts. "Take care now, Godzilla, my old friend." (Charlie Brigden)
