Kraken Not Stirred is a nerd music act which plays various genres and write songs that cover many nerdy topics. This minion of a deep sea monstrous creator sings songs about science fiction, fantasy, computers, conventions, and general weirdness. Their newest album is Robots vs Monsters. It is about robots and monsters performing about their plans for the destruction of humanity. Each side is represented by different music styles; electronica for robots and metal for monsters.
They each get a few solo tracks to themselves, showing off their skills. They also fight in rap style battles about who is superior. They do finally join forces with the mighty Kraken to destroy all the humans and the world. I real feel good story.
Personally I like the rock of the monsters more. Just more my style and the robots are a little too monotone for me, but the robots do have a dance party feel.
Something I would recommend for people who want new Halloween music or fans of either electronica or harder rock who want some nerdy music that is for everyone.
You can buy a digital album for $6, physical CD for $8, at Robots vs Monsters T-shirt for $20, or get a World Domination Pack with the album, t-shirt, and button set for $28. T-shirt and album cover art done by Peter Chiykowski of the web comic Rock, Paper, Cynic.
Kraken will be appearing at a book launch party at Bakka Phoenix Books in Toronto, Canada this Saturday at 2pm with other music acts and webcomic creators.
