Gigant is German for giant; and this Belgrade/Serbian based HNW project certainly live up to it’s name as they create here one long and huge sounding track of throbbing and rumbling walled matter. This is the projects first (self) released album.
The one and only track present here is entitled “Versus Progress” and it takes in just under forty two minutes of locked and thick HNW. The tracks best described as one thick, rumbling and slo-mo earthquake of juddering lower toned repetition and huge sounding ‘wall making’. At times it almost feels like the tracks taken on a stuck drum like rumble, and at others a more huge machine like droning judder, but in reality the wall never really changes from it’s original course- it’s just your mind playing tricks with you. The track mangers to keep your attention through-out it’s forty minute playtime, and on the whole it has a very pleasingly enchasing feel to it ,which of course nicely detaches you from the world around you for it’s running time.
So “Versus Progress” is a nicely surrounding and pleasingly rumble-bound slice of wall making. It's not particularly bleak, dark or nasty- but instead has an almost hearty and satisfying vibe to it.
