Named for the ultra-massive class of star, Hypergiant fuse the monolithic riffage of stoner rock with the intricacies of progressive metal to create a sound both colossal and nuanced.
Drawing inspiration from a broad range of artists, from the revered godfathers of the riff, Black Sabbath, to the modern behemoths such as Mastodon, Sleep and Baroness, with a hint of the psychedelic space-rock characteristic of Pink Floyd and Hawkwind, Hypergiant are steadily carving out a sound of their own from the molten sludge of these combined influences.
Formed in 2011, Hypergiant has shared the stage with a number of acclaimed international bands including Red Fang, Greenleaf and Sasquatch, as well as a wide swathe of Australian heavy bands across the country.
In 2017 the band released their debut full length, Father Sky, an hour-long odyssey of riffage, lyrically exploring humanity's potential for either greatness or self-destruction.
Recorded and mixed by Clayton Segelov (Full of Hell, Adrift for Days, Sleepmakeswaves) at The Brain Studios and mastered by Brad Boatright (Sleep, High on Fire, Converge), Father Sky is an ambitious and eclectic slab that sees the band traverse sonic ground ranging from throbbing stoner metal to crushing sludge to swirling, hazy space rock, with every shade of heavy in between.
