These Are The Days

This isn’t the first time Giants have graced our buzz chart, earlier this summer they launched into the top spot with lead single ‘Snakes’. Now with a mini-album to add to their arsenal, Giants are again dominating the Crossfire stereo.

The band seem to display what a lot of hardcore and punk bands are lacking at the moment, it’s something that is impossible to put your finger on, but this band just get it right. Basically, their style is gnarly as fuck without the guys taking themselves too seriously.

‘These Are The Days’ races through as an adrenaline fueled assault. ‘When It Comes Down To It’, ‘Bottled Up’ and ‘Snakes’ are barely over a minute each, but why drag out the length of a song when you’re already nailing the point in a nutshell?

The bass and guitar tone of the mini-album gives the overall impression of an old school skate punk record, whilst the occasional ‘two-step’ pace and constant aggressive vocals propels ‘These Are The Days’ straight back into the realms of present day hardcore. This is a little corker that needs to be blasted out at full volume.

giants_thesearethedaysThe popularity of the Scooter is one of the most frustrating curses of modern times within our culture. 10 years ago, the enemy of all skateboarders were fruitboots but the trends of school playing grounds have shifted towards the vermin on 2 wheels. Hoardes of little shits are now buzzing around skateparks without any clue of how stupid they look; clogging up lines in their droves and draining sessions due to a lack of co-ordination and etiquette.

Today, the skateboarders from the British band Giants have released ‘Snakes‘, a track that highlights the problem and rages from start to finish. This is the first offering lifted from their brand new mini-album ‘These Are The Days’ that will be released on September 17th and available as a free download. Weighing in at just over a minute, Snakes packs more punch than a hill bomb slam at 50mph and is a great introduction to a band that are carving out some great waves in the UK hardcore scene right now.

Look out for a feature with them here next week and pre order at
