- Death To The Beast by Gigantes
9/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 31 May 2012
Gigantes (formally known as BEAST) are a fantastical duo comprising of David Smyth (formally of A.p.A.T.t and Kling Klang) on drums and Joe Hirons (formally of Uncivil Servant) on multiple synths. I’ve seen these dudes a number of times and I’ve always been blown away by Hirons’s dexterity as he handles three synths at a time (he plays the bass notes with his feet!) with ease. Smyth also knows how to handle himself on the kit and between to the two of them they concoct a deep and heavy take on krautrock and psychedelia.
Their debut is a testament to the duo’s love of Tangerine Dream, Faust, Kraftwerk, Amon Duul, Hawkwind, Silver Apples, Zombi, Goblin and Black Sabbath as well as contemporaries Mugstar (who they’ve recently completed a European tour with) and Manchester’s bong-hoggers Gnod. ‘Death To The Beast’ has got it all, from grand organ based ambiance to full blown synth-rock attacks of the like Kling Klang were masters of before their demise at the hands of Kraftwerk’s lawyers (a sad affair I’m sure you'll agree). So, if you’re a fan of the soundtrack worshipping progressive moves of Zombi and the like then this is definitely a record worth investigating. Nice work lads.
