Ugly, frost-bitten, troll-ravaged folk-metallers FROST GIANT are pleased to offer the exclusive stream of new song “Of Clarity and Regret,” courtesy of Invisible Oranges. Stream that sucker at this location.The song is taken from forthcoming album The Harlot Star, an 11-track salute to the glory of battle from one of folk metal’s most unique and entertaining bands. FROST GIANT’s third full-length is a catchy mix of 90’s So-Cal punk, European folk metal and American hardcore rooted in Norse mythology, historical references and general silliness.
Transcending Records will release The Harlot Star on January 19. Pre-order the album at this location.
FROST GIANT previously released an animated video for album cut “Prisoner of the Past.” Check it out at https://youtu.be/TBeOGMINaqg.
Another new track, “Forgive Me Not,” is streaming as part of Decibel Magazine’s interview with Transcending Records owner Mike Ramirez. The interview also features songs by Transcending Records artists TRANSYLVANIA STUD and MOUNTARIS. Inspired by Norse mythology, epic metal, punk rock, and combined with an American hardcore attitude, FROST GIANT drops an icy hammer on everything trendy and weak. The music pays no attention to boundaries, deliberately crossing genres and bringing them all together in one truly unique sound. From the mead-hall sing along choruses to the shredding melodic death metal passages laced with tortured growls and screams, from the pounding double bass to the pop-punk riffs that linger for days, FROST GIANT’s music journeys through stories and lore, bringing to light the tales of old in a modern folk-metal context.Whether they be warm memories of hearth and home, heroic sagas, or tragic remembrances, the songs will carve these colorful volumes into the soul of anyone whose ears they touch.
