“Mythos” is the second release from Canada’s Hunting Giants following their 2018 EP “Skyward Eyes”. They have upped the ante with this new record, offering bigger riffs, wilder stories, and more layers to entangle listeners. In the wake of the album release, they are now showcasing an animated video for the instrumental single “Whispers”, which replaces vocals with grand piano for a haunting and mysterious atmosphere. The band comments on the album:
“Mythos is the crowning achievement of our musical work as a band and we are incredibly excited to finally share it. This album is the product of years of writing and recording while gigging and enduring as a band under quarantine. We have crafted thirteen energetic tracks with diverse emotional and thematic textures. Our team has worked incredibly hard on this album, from pre-production, through the recording, mixing, and mastering process. We give special thanks to our producer Kirby J. Kaye for his wisdom and patience. Mythos is a mosaic of archetypes; an exploration of varying values and beliefs and the results that these actions have upon our lives, all set within a context of mythological fantasy.”
Hunting Giants was formed around the idea of taking the rich experience of progressive metal and compacting it into short and lean hard rock songs that quickly get to the point without losing the punch and depth the genre is known for. Their songs are absolutely a collaborative effort. Where each member of the band has a voice, and no one has veto power. They bounce ideas off each other frequently and build things together early in the songwriting process and the result is music far beyond what any of them could individually make.
Influenced mainly by progressive metal and groove metal, Hunting Giants also looks to other genres from glam rock to classical. They are recommended for fans of Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, and Audioslave.

“A glorious adventure is about to begin, starting right here today! Heavy metallers Hunting Giants are debuting their brand new music video for “Rituals,” the first single from their upcoming album Mythos. The song indicates the zeal and the ambition that the band is bringing towards this new record, due for release on September 30th. The “Rituals” video matches the flat-out intensity of the song, one that discusses necromancy and the harshness of hatred and shame.” – V13
“It’s not often that a band is described as ‘a blend of modern hard rock, progressive rock/metal and grunge influences,’ but that is indeed a fitting description of Vancouver’s Hunting Giants” – Bravewords
“Let me say this first, HUNTING GIANTS from Vancouver are REALLY freaking good. These guys are relatively new but they are tighter and more accomplished man many veteran bands.” – Rock You Show
“This is an album (Mythos) that you’ll want to wander through thanks to their technical proficiency and the production value.” – Metal Roos
“a solid listen, and a fairly unique combination of a few different styles. It’s mostly heavy enough for Metal fans, and mostly melodic enough for fans like myself who appreciate a good hook.” – Metal Temple
