Canada’s Hunting Giants have released three killer singles in support of their upcoming album “Mythos” and now the entire record awaits ears. Musically, it’s very diverse ranging from intense white-knuckled metal tracks, down to gentle instrumental tracks peppered with melodic piano and haunting cello, all the way to epic ballads tastefully complimented by choirs, strings, and bells. Lyrically, it explores archetypes, both heroic and villainous, that affect the world around us, as well as the inevitable fates which arise when these values are heinously held and expressed. The band continues:
““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. 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.”
Each one of the thirteen tracks on the album was carefully crafted as a potent musical movement contributing to an overarching collective story. A story that is told with passion, anger, strength, and fragility. Each song stands strongly on its own while remaining an important part of the powerful whole. These selections come from a vast vault of ideas and compositions that Hunting Giants expects to be pulling from again in the near future.
Not just a powerhouse in the recording studio, the band offers a full, engaging live experience that stands out from other bands. They employ a complete repertoire of stunning visuals which exemplify the masterfully performed music. Each song exhibits its own uniquely stylized visual arrangement that moves and stays in perfect sync with the music from the first beat to beyond the last. Fans of theatrics, they aim to be a memorable spectacle.
“Mythos” was produced by Kirby J. Kaye for Aztech Productions, mixed by John Webster, and mastered by Richard Addison at Trillium Mastering and the artwork was done by Kacper Gilka. It is recommended listening for fans of Muse, Tool, and Alice In Chains.
The album “Mythos” is due out on September 30, 2022, and can be heard in full before its official release via Bravewords HERE.

“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
