VIDEO PREMIERE: Howling Giant deliver a brand new cosmic crusher with "The Pioneer"

Howling Giant, a progressive metal band that upped their Bostonian roots and moved out to the weird cosmos of the American South that is Nashville. No twangy guitars here and don’t even begin to think that Howling Giant are “whisky soaked” or “bluesy.” Howling Giant has a sound that is as clear and crisp as it is raw and spacey. They dive deep into the well of progressive rock as well as take off for joy rides into space. They mix these trips with a healthy dose of youthful humor and beer drinking, coming out on the other end sounding like the bastard child of Elder and Red Fang.

Their cleverly titled EP, and second release to date “Black Hole Space Wizard: Part 1,” released in August last year, was the start of a three part series and judging by songs such as Dirtmouth,” that we premiered the video of here, Howling Giant has the discipline to take their time fleshing out riffs without losing sight of the song, their energy and passion is felt throughout, which is the glue that held that EP together. Less than a year later and Howling Giant are back and August 25, 2017 will see the release of Part 2 of their “Black Hole Space Wizard trilogy.

So if you are one of the many that wishes Mastodon had continued in the cosmic, crushing progressive manner of “Crack The Skye” and “Blood Mountain”, and if you’re a fan of Elder, Red Fang, Melvins, Baroness, Rush then Howling Giant is your dream band! Today we’re very excited to debut a brand new new track from their forthcoming release “Black Hole Space Wizard: Part 2”, you can check out “The Pioneer” below.
