HOWLING GIANT! The very name summons up mental images of a huge mutated orc-warrior astride an even more gigantic mastodon, ready to bring death, doom, damnation and destruction down upon its enemies.
Hailing from Nashville, Howling Giant obviously had some magical metal immunity to all the country and western music in the air. And this magic culminates into Howling Giant drawing comparisons and influence from Motorhead and MC5 to Cream and Corrosion of Conformity. As guitarist Tom Polzine explains, “Musically we aim to write songs that are melodic, catchy, and head bang-able, while conjuring up space-themed imagery of heroes and villains at war.”
In similar fashion as Wagner’s Flight of the Valkyries and work by the father of the symphonic poem, composer Franz Liszt, Howling Giant achieves a grotesque level of over the top imagery and sound. A sound and image that straddles absurdity and the crushing metal power of Thor’s Hammer.
Right now, Howling Giant is poised to hit the road in support their latest EP, Black Hole Space Wizard, a concept EP series that will be released on Sony Records, The Orchard.
