Frost Giant / Press

"Drink mead and chop peoples heads off ."

" It is a stunning sound which can be best described as Tyr and Korpiklaani in a drinking contest riot with Biohazard and Agnostic Front whilst the melodic cheers of Billy Talent and Lagwagon egg them on. It is an exciting and stirring mix which offers great diversity and originality and the EP which basks in it, easily one of the best releases this year."

"They have a formula and sound that differs so much from other artists I've heard that they create a lasting impression. This EP demonstrates a great potential... ...If they continue on this path and momentum, I think they'll find themselves in a great spot in the music scene."

" I'm not the metalhead here. Everything I know about metal can be, and probably has been, airbrushed onto the side of panel van in Oxnard, California. But, I'm head over fucking heels for this record. It's honestly just a fun piece of work, and I can't remember the last time I heard metal that I thought was straight up fun... Top 5 of the year. No joke."

"The crux of the band's sound is the carnivorous clashing of two worlds - the rampaging aggression of inspired classic hardcore like Minor Threat, Black Flag, and Agnostic Front joining forces with the melodic, shamanistic metal-play of Scandinavian bands like Korpiklaani, Ensiferum, and Tyr." ... "I wouldn't call what the band creates "songs" as much as I would refer to them as hymns for the mosh pit. As potent as the lyrics are, the music is performed with such dedicated passion that it naturally commands attention."

"Frost Giant put together a surprisingly strong blend of styles that have otherwise been worn out in recent memory. Creative arrangements and writing highlight a very good band and a versatile vocalist, perhaps exemplified by how they polish some old school metalcore and replace gang shouts with folk metal vocal harmonies and breakdowns with melodic death/power metal." "...this EP is awesome all around."

"The music exhibited on their EP here is quite frankly a brilliant exercise in not only bringing various influences to the table (and sometimes clashing influences at that), but also to often layer them over each other in a way that shouldn't work but somehow does." "...There is no earthly reason this should work and not be cheesy, but it actually does work, and sounds fresh and invigorating rather than just an ironic mashup made for lulz."
