Biography

Cleveland, United States (1990 – 2006, 2007 – present)

There are two active bands using the moniker Red Giant, one from Cleveland, Ohio and the second from Chico, California.

Back in the late summer of 1990, Damien Perry, Brian Skinner Chris Gorman, and Alex Perekrest formed Red Giant. They shared a connection through a love of classic punk, rock, and metal bands- like AC/DC, Motorhead, The MC5, Black Sabbath, and The Stooges.

In 1995, Red Giant released “Psychoblaster and the Misuse of Power”, cementing their footprint on the emerging stoner rock scene. As years unfolded, they shared stages with many respected bands…Mule, Voivod, Hawkwind, Queens of the Stone Age, Fu Manchu, Nebula, and Hermano - to name just a few.

In 1998, Red Giant released their second CD, “Ultramagnetic Glowing Sound” on New York’s Tee Pee Records which was also home to cool bands like The Atomic Bitchwax, and High on Fire. Renowned illustrator Derek Hess created the artwork for the album, keeping to the band’s theme of the cosmic welder. This was around the time they started traveling more, playing showcases at The Continental and CBGB’s in New York City.

Then in 2004 they released “Devil Child Blues” on Small Stone Records out of Detroit Michigan- home to some of our favorite bands like Honky, Valis, and Dixie Witch. This lead to several tours of the U.S. including a couple of trips down to Austin Texas for South by Southwest. They even appeared in a few commercials on MTV2.

    The blatant disregard for one of the best Stoner albums ever released makes me sick. Ultra Magnetic Glowing Sound should be known by all.

    Production aside, I think the song writing on both albums are equal. Just me though.

    I think that entire album is epic Wild_Karrde. Its a truely good sci fi album. Devil Child Blues is a different flavor but just as epic.

    Fucking love Red Giant. One of today's greatest hard rock bands. Devil Child Blues is on its way to becoming a classic for me.

    Doesn't matter - You don't take the name of a band that's been around longer and is already respected. That = FAIL. Who's the idiot?

    Now that I can say I've listened to BOTH bands, I'm still going to have to say that the Cincinnati Red Giant is superior to the Chico.

    VenominJames I assume has never listened to the Chico Red Giant, based solely on the fact that they didn't release any real recordings until two days ago. So in other words, he is an idiot.

    Sorry but the red giant from Ohio sucks. The Red Giant from Chico is much better.
