Today, progressive tech metal giants, GIGAN, kick of their long-awaited Ritualistic Projection Tour. Scheduled to commence tonight in Appleton, Wisconsin, the brief but threatening expedition will crush seven metropolises and includes an in-store matinee performance at Reckless Records in Chicago.
The journey marks GIGAN‘s first roadside excursion in support of their titanic Multi-Dimensional Fractal Sorcery and Super Science full-length, released early this week via Willowtip Records. Instrumentally dense, methodically precise, conceptually captivating and physically challenging, Multi-Dimensional Fractal Sorcery and Super Science was recorded with Sanford Parker (Minsk, Buried At Sea, Yakuza) at Earth Analog Studios in Chicago and commands its listener’s attention upon first note. One Metal calls Multi-Dimensional Fractal Sorcery and Super Science, “an excellently-composed album… it traffics in disturbingly off-kilter melodies and threat-laced dynamics to inspire awe and fear… GIGAN have created an album that dares the listener to stare into the chaos and to make sense of what they see – those who do so without blinking will find that the band has some unique sights to show you,” while Exclaim notes, “Multi-Dimensional Fractal Sorcery and Super Science comes at the listener as an overwhelming wall of sound, the frenzied, barely restrained guitar work interwoven with a dense, hostile network of throbbing, explosive synths. Ugly, intense and increasingly mechanical, …Super Science is the type of record that would be favoured by angry cyborgs.” Adds Emusic, “…those who like their death metal inhuman, loud as a jet engine and thick as tar will find Multi-Dimensional Fractal Sorcery and Super Science one of 2013’s most exhilarating albums.”

The brainchild of left-handed lead guitarist and founding member Eric Hersemann, GIGAN has been challenging the mortal laws of extreme music and creativity since early 2006. Forged around the simple notion that the imagination should be art’s only limit, GIGAN‘s style of creative delivery has simultaneously invoked reactions of amazement, disbelief, shock, awe and ultimately, respect.
