Kingdom of Giants - Abominable EP
Record Label: Outerloop Management (Unsigned)
Release Date: January 25th, 2012

Who?
Kingdom of Giants is a hardcore band from California consisting of six people. Originally known as the band Hello Sailor, they decided to switch to the name Kingdom of Giants. What a proper name it is. These guys have the potential to be something massive in the now over-saturated hardcore/post-hardcore scene. Their debut EP, Abominable, shows glimpses of this greatness. Just enough to get you hooked, but not enough to make this an amazing score.

Same here. I would love to see some acoustic stuff from Dana! He is such a great singer.

If you took away the clean vocals what else would you classify them as? They are heavier then regular screamo but not so heavy to be called death metal or deathcore.

Well as huge as Emarosa once was, considering that they are in hiding. I haven't heard a peep from them in, what feels like, forever.

Thanks, I'm going to try and find out if he does the cleans for the entire EP. Everywhere I've looked it says that Dana also does some vocals so I'm going to try and get the facts straight.

Can't wait til these guys get signed. I'm hoping they nail down a genre in their next album though, so they can continue to work in a newer direction.
