Hold onto and brace your eardrums, because a tempest of stoner and sludge is about to descend upon us, courtesy of Italy's FALLING GIANTS. The earth is about to quake and rattle with the release of their long-awaited debut album "Whirlwind Hymns", set to drop like a seismic bomb on September 30th, 2023. Mark your calendars, fellow riff-worshipers, because this is one whirlwind you won't want to miss.
Picture this: gusts of riffs as heavy as the weight of the world, melodies that pull you into the abyss, and a sonic force that'll make you question the very fabric of reality. That's the sonic tapestry that FALLING GIANTS weaves with "Whirlwind Hymns". It's not just an album; it's a journey through the depths of your psyche, an exploration of despair and hope, all entwined within a musical canvas of stoner and sludge.
Imagine being caught in a storm, winds tearing at your very soul, stripping away all illusions. That's the essence of "Whirlwind Hymns". From the atmospheric "Northwest Passage/Where the Deserts Collide" to the crushing "The Trail of Dust Men", this album isn't just a collection of songs; it's a sonic odyssey that'll sweep you off your feet and plunge you into a vortex of sound.
According to the band, "We have searched the strength of the wind and its purifying lift. With the gains on, power amps howls destruction and sometimes the mind strives for peace". And let me tell you, metalheads, this isn't just music; it's a cathartic experience that'll leave you both battered and renewed.
But who are these sonic alchemists known as FALLING GIANTS? Formed in the dying embers of 2016, this Italian trio – Rust (guitar and vocals), Frank (bass and vocals), and Briareo (drums) – has been on a mission to shatter boundaries and redefine stoner and sludge. What started as a quest for psychedelic sounds quickly transformed into a concoction of genres and sub-genres, culminating in their signature sludge sound.
After years of sonic exploration, a seminal demo, and a lineup bolstered by the addition of Pest on guitar, FALLING GIANTS emerged with a complex, all-encompassing sound that blends sludge, doom, black, and more. Their debut album "Whirlwind Hymns" is a culmination of this journey, an artistic triumph that's poised to carve its name into the annals of heavy music history.
With influences ranging from the likes of Eyehategod and Crowbar to Soundgarden and Neurosis, FALLING GIANTS is a melting pot of sonic inspiration that promises to leave a lasting impact. So prepare your senses for the stoner and sludge onslaught, and keep your eyes and ears peeled for "Whirlwind Hymns". On September 30th, the Italian giants of doom shall rise.
Get ready, metalheads. "Whirlwind Hymns" is coming, and it's about to blow you away like a sonic hurricane.
