“The real goblin” (Maurizio, Fabio, Agostino and Massimo) touring North America and showcasing their new album “Fearless” based on Dawn of the Dead
GIGAN is the brain-child of founding member; multi-instrumentalist and lyric/conceptual mastermind Eric Hersemann. GIGAN’s existence began more than a decade ago in 2005, after Hersemann’s stints in Tampa, FL’s Diabolic and Hate Eternal. Prior to that, Eric’s time was spent sharpening his blades in his hometown of Chicago, IL with the likes of Chicago legends Burnt Offering and Death-Thrash innovators Lord Blasphemer. After writing, recording and releasing GIGAN’s “Footsteps of GIGAN” demo and the first two GIGAN albums (Order of the False Eye on Napalm Records and Quasi-Hallucinogenic Sonic Landscapes on Willowtip Records) in Tampa, Eric relocated to his roots in Chicago and began the writing process for GIGAN’s critically acclaimed masterwork : “Multi-Dimensional Fractal Sorcery and Super-Science”.
The musical equivalent of what the most frightening, violent, and disturbing scenes from a good midnight movie might sound like. THE LION’S DAUGHTER from St. Louis, Missouri unleash a crushing assault of dense frying riffs, pummeling rhythms, pumping bass lines, and throat-shredding vocals supported by creepy synthesizers creating a seething intensity that borders on the frightful. Their third full length album, ‘Future Cult’ is without doubt a fitting soundtrack to the post-apocalyptic hellscape that is to come.
