Album Stream: Ghidrah - Invincible Deluxe (Music Month Special)

Monday 20th May, 2013 11:22AM

Combining a love of video games and old movies with hardcore punk,  Ghidrah emerged out of Hamilton in 1996. The fourth installment of our Music Month feature on great New Zealand releases, Invincible Deluxe was their debut album, released in 1997 via long defunct local label Kafuey (who also released Sommerset's debut album More Songs that same year) and streaming all week for your listening pleasure.

Invincible Deluxe was self-produced using a digital eight track recorder, which band member Brian Holloway says he 'mortgaged his life to buy', and was mastered by Bob Frisbee (Street Chant, Beach Pigs, Rackets). Much like their songs, the band's dynamic was volatile and lifespan short with the trio splitting in 1997 but not before making a lasting impression and racking up an impressive live reputation including two historic support slots for Fugazi and Melvins.

Get [re]acquainted with Invincible Deluxe below and, as we discovered when we got in touch about the stream,  Holloway along with original members Gregory Broadmore and Christian Pearce (now Wellington based) have been back together working on a new EP  which will be released this year under the slightly tweaked name 'Ghidoragh' - keep an eye out for the first taster of that in the coming weeks.
