In order to celebrate the release of the new album »Cataclysm« – scheduled on May, 1st via Planet K Records – the Danish stoner/sludge band Rift Giant is sharing a new lyric video for the single »Queen Witch«, courtesy of the 666MrDoom channel.
»Cataclysm« is a concept album about a troop of soldiers who are plucked from a world similar to our own and following their exploits on an otherworldly plane where abnormally large reptiles, witches and, of course, a giant dwell. The singer Matthew Pither declared about »Queen Witch«:
“The song, thanks to this long, instrumental section with various riffs, a solo and then a downtempo passage, portrays the curse that is casting over the troop as no narration is taking place during the company’s enthralment within a dream-like state.”
Rift Giant is a 2-piece band based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Together, guitarist/bassist/vocalist Matthew Pither (UK) and drummer Thomas Ramkilde (Denmark) focus on creating powerful, driving riffs interspersed with heavy, groovy melodies. Founded in 2016, the duo writes music with lyrics inspired by the fantasy literature genre; mammoths, demons, witches, and, of course, giants, feature prominently in their world.
Recorded by Rift Giant in an adapted World War 2 bunker.
Mixed by Patrick Fragtrup at Wolf Rider Sound Production.
Mastered by Lasse Ballade at Ballade Studios, Copenhagen.
