Denmark Stoner/Sludge Rockers RIFT GIANT is stoked to announce that their new album Cataclysm will be released on May, 1st via Planet K Records. The album is going to be shortly available as a jewel case and in digital download.

Rift Giant is a 2-piece band based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Together, guitarist/bassist/vocalist Matthew Pither (UK) and drummer Thomas Ramkilde (Denmark) focus on creating powerful, driving riffs interspersed with heavy, groovy melodies. Founded in 2016, the duo writes music with lyrics inspired by the fantasy literature genre; mammoths, demons, witches, and, of course, giants, feature prominently in their world.

Cataclysm has been recorded by the band himself in an adapted World War 2 bunker. Mixed by Patrick Fragtrup at Wolf Rider Sound Production and mastered by Lasse Ballade at Ballade Studios (Copenhagen). Artwork by Adam C Design & Illustration.

For fans of Doctor Smoke, High on Fire, and Mastodon.
