Enlarge A new djent-flavored act from the U.K.

Giant Walker Channel Equal Parts Karnivool and Led Zeppelin on New Single


How much longer will the djent train keep rolling? It’s all but come to a stand-still nearly 15 years after it burst upon the scene, but every now and again a new band comes along that shakes things up just enough to keep it interesting.

Enter Giant Walker, who are equal parts Karnivool, Periphery, Royal Blood and Led Zeppelin. How’s that for a mix? That likely seems odd on paper, I’ll give that to you, but when you hear their new single, “The Fact in Fiction,” you’ll hear what I mean. You’ll also hear an insanely catchy number from both guitar and vocal perspectives, propelled by an uber-locked in rhythm section, and you’ll be wanting to listen to it again as soon as it ends.

No word on a release date for Giant Walker’s debut album, but they say it’s coming soon. I’m ready.
