Kroagnon Few bands manage to stand out these days in the extremely crowded world of the stoner metal scene. Giza make it look easy though, replacing Electric Wizard influences with a more rhythmic, mysterious, almost folk-like quality. I would like to make a distinction somewhere between Psychedelic Metal and Stoner Metal, citing this as part of the former rather than the latter, but i have no idea where i would start. Very good. Very Distinctive. Very heavy. 8.5/10 Favorite track: Strawberry Caviar.

Maxime So loud it could cause earthquake. Instrumental slude heavyness. Kinda remind me of Conan, without the vocals, with a touch of Pelican. Great great great album.

Zhakathoom I hereby dub Giza the lords of the ethereal crushing. The heraldic lead butterflies of Doom. The magnificent weavers of arachnid concrete. And I bow to their greatness!
Giza has always paved their musical pathways with the heaviest and most crushing stones, but with Migration I feel they lift the attention to the vistas as well and tell the entire journey as an encompassing saga of hair-raising quality and proportion. 4 tracks? It feels like a lot more but still leaves you craving more. The Giza universe is unfolding with every release like a slowmo Big Bang and I'm left in awe at the spectacle. Loving this! Favorite track: March Of The High Priests.

Azazel ♒ 7293 This is the soundtrack of a planet being destroyed by dudes in black clothing under the influence of LSD. Seriously thought I've been slapped by a comet or something! Favorite track: Strawberry Caviar.

Scumbag Okay, it's the third album and I'm sure all us listeners of previous Giza material know what to expect. Fortunately they throw in a little treat in the form of vocals (performed ear-pleasingly) which break up the potential monotony of the 13+ minute sludge marathon that is the album's closing track. Favorite track: March Of The High Priests.
