Gondwanaland is an album from Steroid Maximus. It was released in 1992 by Big Cat Records.

Gondwanaland is Ectopic Entertainment #ECT ENTS 003.

The album is the second Steroid Maximus album of instrumental soundtrack music to an imaginary film.[2] Ira Robbins of Trouser Press called the music "stunning in its mischievous diversion of traditional concepts", describing the music as "Wagnerian orchestration, exotic ethnic elements, blaring big-band swing, continental drift and found-sound constructions".[3]
