Wounded Giant - Vae Victis

Wounded Giant make a welcome return after a lengthy four year absence from their debut album – Lightning Medicine. Sure they’ve released an EP’s and split record but this time they’ve come back stronger than ever with their new album – Vae Victis. Newly signed to STB Records, the guys have not only teamed up with that awesome label but they have also called upon the talents of legendary producer Billy Anderson to produce their new album. Vae Victis sees Wounded Giant create a more diverse and progressive sound heard on their debut album. Though fans of their debut album will be treated to some familiar sounds spliced throughout the album. Vae Victis has a more Melvins/Soundgarden influenced style of sound. It works as their familiar Doom/Stoner riffs hold everything together. Truth be told, it took me a long time to fully appreciate this album as my first listen it left me rather cold by the whole experience. I’ve only enjoyed it with multiple listens and listening closely to the lyrics that I started to fully appreciate what an epic and stunning album this really is. My final thoughts on Vae Victis are that Wounded Giant has exceeded themselves with this album. As it’s a spellbinding take on all things Rock, Metal and everything in between. ~ Steve Howe (Outlaws of The Sun)
