KING GIANT
DISMAL HOLLOW
GRAVEYARD HILL

King Giant is a Virginia-based quintet with a predilection for administering a slow cooked selection of sludgy southern-tinged stoner metal as audible on their eight-track excursion DISMAL HOLLOW. Armed with a vocal snarl reminiscent of Danzig (“Pistols and Penance”) and a twin guitar attack stacked with colossal riffs (“6 O’Clock Swill”) that downshifts from COC to Down, to Rwake without batting an eye, King Giant’s monolithic attack is accentuated with nuances like cello and female background voices to flesh out their down and dirty descent through the backwoods swamps of the Mid-Atlantic. Mature and muscular, King Giant’s sophomore effort avoids the dreaded slump and cranks out an album dripping in despondency. –Mike SOS
