AATR Premier HUNTING GIANTS “Mantle” Off “Mythos” Video

28th October 2022 2 By Jon Deaux

Canada’s Hunting Giants have long been working on their recent album “Mythos”, which was released in September. A full-fledged journey for the listener into wild worlds punctuated with devious riffs, distinctive vocals, and captivating lyrics, they continue to offer an escape with the lyric video for “Mantle”. A monster of a track, all instruments and vocals come in on the same first beat. An allusion to a toxic relationship, we follow the story of a man who makes a pact with an unknown force who claims to be subservient to him. The band continues to explain:

“While the vocals and instruments roar with aggressive verses and a theatrically inspired chorus, the deity demands to be re-payed for the boons she has bestowed upon her subject. As the track breaks down into the bridge, he dismembered himself to feed her. This is a mirror to those who sacrifice pieces of themselves for another who only seeks to use them. The song comes to a conclusion with the instruments playing the intro riff while it is accented by a feral vocal roar.”

According to the band, “Mythos” is the crowning achievement of their musical work as a band and they are incredibly excited to share it. The album is the product of years of writing and recording while gigging and enduring as a band under quarantine. The members of Hunting Giants all came from, and are inspired by, progressive rock and metal bands where songs would often pass the ten-minute mark. However, they desired to keep their own music concise and to the point, intentionally lacking much of the excess material that so often padded run-times of songs in the progressive rock-metal genre. Simple and clean lines are given priority over complicated abstractions that only challenge the player in an athletic way, provided that it serves the music.

They continue to explain that listenability rules over impressing instrumentalists and the form that every section of the music takes is defined entirely by how it needs to be. Each song becomes a life of its own that slowly emerges from an ocean of subconscious possibility. They are recommended listening for fans of Audioslave, Muse, and Tool.
