it's tricky and it's not that easy: prog, tech and experimentation in death metal: GIGAN: "Multi-Dimensional Fractal Sorcery And Super Science" (Willowtip)

it's tricky and it's not that easy: prog, tech and experimentation in death metal: GIGAN: "Multi-Dimensional Fractal Sorcery And Super Science" (Willowtip)
The truth is that I should have noticed a lot earlier the awesomeness of prog-tech-experimental death metallers Gigan, but I did not. Fortunately for me, and those readers that like death metal AND want to hear new things within death metal, Gigan's album is something worth looking into. It sounds as heavy as the heavies of death metal, but it's so twisted and even freaky, yet it's not about being weird or wacky. Gigan is fast, technical, with a tendency to add unexpected guitar wizardry into the center of the blender.
It appears that Gigan has asked itself this question: "Is it possible to play fast, heavy-duty death metal and create some new structures within a technical death metal context? Is it possible to play fast, play heavy and give the guitar room to wander, and the drums room to roam free, not just blast in a linear way?"
Gigan is death metal, Gigan is not pleased with just copying the old death metal bands.
Do you like death metal, but also want to hear a band that makes the effort to give its own twist?
I recommend Gigan.
