Gas Giant is a 3 piece rock band from Copenhagen, Denmark. Their sound blends influences from classic rock acts of the ’60s and ’70s like The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath with a sound and attitude found in modern bands such as Kyuss and Monster Magnet. Yet among contemporary bands in this scene, Gas Giant stands out clearly, producing mature songs with strong melodies, though without ever forgetting their heavy roots. Their songs evolve organically during epic rehearsal jam sessions, but balance sledgehammer riffs with plenty of catchy hooks. Gas Giant began life as Blind Man Buff, playing for several years under that name before choosing a new name to reflect their bigger, more spacious sound in 1998. The heavy and spaced out album Pleasant Journey in Heavy Tunes came out in 2000 and opened a lot of doors for the band, but it was later the same year that things got rolling. They hooked up with drummer Tommy Dan, who had been playing both hardcore/rap scene and various jam bands for a while. The new lineup was the perfect match for the band to move on to new musical levels. They now sounded like a four piece machine, ready to hit the road full tilt. In 2003 with the album Mana they set the order how to make heavy and spaced out stoner rock in the state of Denmark. The album was the best yet, and it defined Gas Giant once more as a big and spacious sound. Known as the Gas Giant sound Individually or together, the band members have been playing for more than 14 years in the Danish music scene.
