WHERE GIANTS ONCE STOOD
"LIVE ABOVE"
Self Released

"LIVE ABOVE" is the second release from Toronto, Canada's WHERE GIANTS ONCE
STOOD
. These guys crush it with a killer combination of different Metal styles to create
their sound. They have a very Modern Metal sound that will surely grab a lot of the
younger Metal fans out there today. But, they also add in some flavouring of old school
Thrash Metal as well as some Groove Metal. They then pour in a heavy dose of Metalcore
straight down the middle. The Modern Metal parts come in some of the arrangements of
the songs and how the flow of the songs go. The guitar work kind of goes in a few different
directions. At times you can hear some clean and intricate parts that have a strong
Progressive Metal feel, then it goes into some aggressive and heavy shredding like in old
school Thrash Metal and then heads right into a cool Groove Metal part. Some of the
drumming has a thick and solid Death Metal mixed with Hardcore vibe, which is where the
Metalcore really comes into play. The vocals is where I think the majority of the styles
come to surface. The vocals range from harsh and aggressive almost Death Metal growls
that you can understand to mid ranged almost Randy Blythe of
LAMB OF GOD type
vocals and then into some clean and melodic Post Hardcore type vocals. These guys may be
all over the place with their music, but they pull it together and make it flow smoothly and
come out successfully. I could really see these guys becoming huge in the next few years if
they keep going with releases like this. An absolute must for fans of
AVENGED
SEVENFOLD, AUGUST BURNS RED, PERIPHERY, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE,
LAMB OF GOD
& THE ACACIA STRAIN!
