KING GIANT – Black Ocean Waves
Southern metal appears to be a fusion of doom metal and stoner rock with a strong semblance of groove and soul at the heart of it all – that would be the style on display with Virginia’s King Giant on their third studio album "Black Ocean Waves". Down-tuned guitars, ominous Glenn Danzig-oriented melodies, and a rhythm section that can cook up serious swinging tempos at all speeds makes songs like "The One That God Forgot to Save", C.O.C. meets Clutch head banger "Trail of Thorns" plus early 70’s doom depressor "The Gentleman Carny" thick slices of aural ecstasy.
The power of the riff compels King Giant, and within this 8 song, 45 minute recording you’ll face a treasure trove of compelling heaviness that doom mongers and stoner fans should equally love.
