Psych-stoner metal band Howling Giant invites you to travel the infinite metaphysical world on the concept album “The Space Between Worlds” which also happens to be the first full length release.
“Comet Rider” goes straight to the point with energetic rhythmic dynamics meant to build a cohesive groovy momentum in proper stoner fashion with loads of chunky guitar riffs yet the band is able to create some widely accessible melodies.
“The River Guide” might sound more somber following a desert rock inspiration that leads to a major spaced out atmospheric moment where everything slows down drastically to emphasize the warm guitar tonalities and the dreamy vibes.
Right from the beginning “Everlight” promises to be a trippy sonic experience as the psychedelic elements contribute to the creation of dazed atmospheres entwined with the enthralling melodic guitar work and the consequent nostalgic feelings.
“The Orb” follows a similar pathway and cosmic energy so the slow burning guitar melodies are destined to constantly grab your attention with lovely melancholic nuances that definitely enrich the monumental heavier psych-stoner rhythmic core.
“Stone Giant” makes you feel stoned in the middle of nowhere as guitars craft an overdose of groovy riffs and fancy leads supported by a monolithic rhythmic section in the midst of hazy atmospheres that reach the acme during the intense spacey breakdown while vocals tend to amplify the inner melodic nature.
Certainly all the sci-fi themes at the center of “The Space Between Worlds” will attract a specific audience but let’s not forget that Howling Giant consistently delivers entertaining stoner grooves and compelling melodies.
