Giza are a band from Seattle, Washington that plays an atmospheric and instrumental form of sludge/doom metal and this is a review of their self released 2014 ep "I Am The Ocean, I Am The Sea" which was released in 2014.
Distorted guitar effects start off the ep and after a few seconds the music starts getting heavy and going for a slow and dark doom metal direction and after the intro the music really starts finding its sound.
Sludge metal elements are mixed in with the slow doom sound this band creates along with a good amount of melody and there are no vocals utilized on any of the tracks and the band also brings in influences from both 70's and stoner rock and take them into a heavier direction along with some powerful sounding bass guitars and distorted drones and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length, as the ep progresses psychedelic sounds start becoming a huge part of the music.
Giza create a very dark, heavy and apocalyptic sound with their music with all of the tracks being true to the tradition of sludge and doom metal and containing none of the post rock elements some of the newer bands have and the production also sounds very powerful and professional sounding.
In my opinion Giza are a very great sounding atmospheric and instrumental sludge/doom metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Interplanetary Cyclone" and "V'> 8 out of 10.
