Psychedelic extreme metal marauders GIGAN recently completed the recording of their upcoming new studio offering. Titled Multi-Dimensional Fractal Sorcery And Super-Science, the bands third full-length, and second to be released through forward-thinking label imprint, Willowtip Records, was recorded with esteemed sound sage Sanford Parker (Minsk, Buried At Sea, Yakuza) at Earth Analog Studios in Chicago. A kaleidoscopic sound voyage that is at once musically complex and meticulously concise, Multi-Dimensional Fractal Sorcery And Super-Science dishes up eight hymns of cranium-twisting, hallucinatory brutality.
Elaborates GIGAN mastermind, Eric Hersemann, Multi-Dimensional Fractal Sorcery And Super Science is the best musical representation of GIGAN so far, as it captures the essential elements of the first three releases while still stretching the existing boundaries of the GIGAN Universe! I had more time to work on this album and the result is a detailed and mesmerizing assault of Psychedelic Extreme Metal! The production also came out spectacularly, with natural sounds and tones complemented by an un-earthly ambience and enigmatic vibe..."
