ONE INCH GIANT – The Great White Beyond

The second album from Swedish stoner metal band One Inch Giant resides in a low tuned land that’s slightly doomy, kinda rocky- and all about feeling the roots of the genre. There’s no doubt Black Sabbath and Alice In Chains factor into material like "Mountains Will Erode" and "Tell Meteor From Star"- but then they throw in these crazy blast beats for "Only Scorn Remains" and you can tell "The Great White Beyond" has a wider progressive scope than most bands in this genre.
Fresh off a slew of touring in 2012 – including a brief fall jaunt to the East Coast of the United States- this quartet knows what they are doing and it shows within their song construction. One Inch Giant- cute juxtaposition of word play, above average arrangements, and an 11 song record that should appeal to a down to earth contingent.
