AHAB braves the seas for a third time to deliver their unique brand of "nautik" doom metal to their fans and draw them down into the depths of the ocean and the human psyche. While the band's previous releases took on Herman Melville's Moby Dick, as well as the tragic fate of the crew on the whaling vessel "Essex", they now turn to Edgar Allan Poe's solitary novel The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket for inspiration. The story comes to life within the musical confines of "The Giant". The songs are long in duration and turn into miniature epic tales embellished by hypnotic and heavy doom riffs, brutal vocals, but also melodic moments that include clean vocal interludes. Those who chose to dive into this monolithic album will surely be rewarded with an extraordinary musical experience that will further confirm the band's top status.
"Nautik" doom metal!
