Dinosaur Robots Return with a Vengeance

A new concept album by MJ Hibbett & The Validators envisions an invasion of alien cyborg dinosaurs.

What’s worse than an invasion of extraterrestrial dinosaurs? Robotic alien dinosaurs. As imagined in their concept album Dinosaur Planet, the band MJ Hibbett & The Validators envisions mechanically augmented dinosaurs returning to Earth to reclaim their home after a 65 million year absence. And as the theme song makes clear, the descendants of Stegosaurus and kin are not very keen on resolving things peacefully. A cyborg Allosaurus isn’t very interested in kissing and making up, and I’m not sure I’d trust one even if it wanted to.

Hat-tip to io9 for digging this up.
