Giants, Dwarfes, and Black Holes – Everwill

Giants, Dwarfes, and Black Holes
Everwill
by Dave "That Metal Guy" Campbell at 31 December 2020, 7:29 AM

GIANTS, DWARFES, AND BLACK HOLES was formed in December 2019 as newborn brainchild of a few experienced musicians from two local bands, which were constantly struggling with the line-up problems. After a few way-out and wicked jam sessions full of esoteric energy and micro-macro and multidimensional spiritual events they decided to choose a common path…”Everwill” contains give tracks.

“Blood Moon” leads off the album. It begins with a simple riff that is part clean, part fuzzy, along with some bass notes. The female cleans and an interesting touch. It reminds me of early 70’s music, and that minimalistic approach. She does have a nice range, but at times they disconnect with the music a bit. From there, it meanders a bit. “Frightful Pain” is a five-minute song, opening with clean guitars, bass, and ethereal vocals. The slow pace is almost like being on an acid trip, where everything begins to wind down and blend together. It moves to a fuzzy riff at some point, and then returns to the previous sound.

“December Bloom” is an eight-minute track, beginning with fuzzy bass notes and a few lead guitar strikes. It turns a bit darker as it moves along, but again, this is pretty minimalistic in terms of the sound. Luzzi sings in a completely care-free way. “Electric Black” is a quick four-minute song, opening with a faster pace and a little more haste. This song cuts right to the chase and there is no meandering. “In the Circle” is a fifteen-minute closing song. It opens with bass guitar and some lead notes, with wah-wah. It opens up with a simple riff and some dark tones. The sound drops after the half-way mark, to ethereal tones and the steady thumping of bass notes with a few leads, and a few vocal notes.

I really don’t understand why a band would put so much energy into trying to sound like the bands of yesteryear. We’ve all heard it before…that late 60’s, early 70’s trippy sound, with very minimalistic instrumentation. Luzzi has a nice voice, but that’s about the only thing that I can say is positive about the album. The rest is marred in meandering tones that just really don’t lead anywhere in the end.
