My friend Sean turned me onto this last Monday when he came by and suggested that I paint the saucer light portion of my Martian War Machines (the ones that look like manta rays) with a dark green color. I did and it looks marvelous I must say. Now for this musical War of the Worlds. I admit that I have only heard two of their songs Thunderchild and The Spirit of Man. Both of them are in a full orchestra complete with synthesizer and rock n roll guitars. The beats are awe inspiring and my imagination just runs wild when I listen to it. I am going to use Jeff's pictures from his musical below but I think he'll be OK with it because I am really promoting his site. As they say on the musical.
"The chances of anything coming from Mars are a million to one they said. The chances of anything coming from Mars are a million to one, yet still they come!"
If anyone knows where I can buy a dvd here in the states that will work on my dvd player please let me know. I looked all over their site and only could find region two dvds although they do have cds and I will be picking those up. In fact when I run WTNW at my next convention at Siege of Augusta in 2011 I will see if I can play the Spirit of Man before the game to get everyone in the mood.
I feel confident in highly recommending this musical just on the music alone from what I have heard. The guitars are used for the Martian gas projectors and beams and the chanting of 'ahhhh' are the Martians, the drums give a nice beat and the strings and synth come together to make a great cosmic voyage. It's so cool!
