WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT SLEEPING GIANT - KINGDOM DAYS...
Zachary Zinn writes: "Sleeping Giant does a tremendous job at keeping the songs diversified and making each one sound different and unique. It’s great to see a heavy band focus more on the Maker than breakdowns and growls. It’s a rare gem that comes highly recommended to fans of the genre."
Jeremiah Holdsworth from Indie Vision Music says: "Musically this album is kicking on all cylinders. If you were a fan of Sleeping Giant before, then you will definitely be impressed with this release. If you weren’t a fan then I definitely recommend checking this one out, because this isn’t the same Sleeping Giant from the past.
Kingdom Days in an Evil Age is a pounding, heavy album that deserves a listen.
EXCLAIM MUSIC REVIEWS
A bomb blast of rage, aggression and religious faith and worship, it drives their messages directly into the ear on the back of some of the best heavy and vibrant sounds heard so far this year.
ABOUT THE ALBUM
Sleeping Giant hit gold in 2011 with Kingdom Days in an Evil Age, their third album of top-shelf Christian metalcore. One of the best things about Kingdom Days is the band's fusion of California metalcore with the swagger of Southern groove metal: when they move into the standard hardcore breakdown, they do it with the sluggish, pounding attitude of Pantera. Tommy Green brings his usual macho, sermonizing yells, while the rest of the group hold everything together beneath the album's punishing riffs. This includes a good amount of (usually very Christian) group choruses. The tracks explode one after another showing no mercy, the brilliantly inspirational and energetic ‘The Cross Is Suicide’ as urgent and dominating as the song ‘Jehova Shalom’ with its devastating defiant riffs and drum attack. The passion the band as a whole and especially Green give for their belief and message is equaled by their skillful and driven ability to create furiously keen and intensive music. The 2022 Bombworks Records CD reissue comes in a jewel case with an 8-page booklet with lyrics, and it's been fully remastered by Rob Cowell of Bombworks Sound and the first pressing of the CD comes with a band foil-stamped Collector Card.
