Conjoined by a mutual appreciation of distortion, outside-the-box-thinking and flannel shirts, Giant - comprised of guitarist Jamie Hatch and bassist Chris Cope - are Britain’s most northerly tech-metal band. The Shetland duo are releasing their debut EP ‘Chronos // Kairos’ in August - a two-track effort that’s a rollercoaster of plunging breakdrowns, prog exploration and epic grandeur. Taking inspiration from the likes of Between The Buried And Me, Every Time I Die and The Dillinger Escape Plan, Giant - whose members feature in many other local Shetland acts - create a big sound; pun most definitely intended.


'This is uplifting... manages to be both complex yet danceable' - Malcolm Dome (Metal Hammer/TeamRock, ex-Kerrang!)

'Monster music! Soaring, technically intimidating, riff-laden guitar fire' - Ally McCrae (ex-Radio 1)

'Expansive and technically excellent - would like to hear it live and get lost in it' - Detour Scotland

''Love it!' - Jim Gellatly (XFM Radio)


released August 28, 2015
