“Cybermancer and the Doomsday Express” is the latest story from the band’s forthcoming saga, The Space Between Worlds, which follows the tale of metaphysical dream worlds and a crucial battle that could unravel space and time as we know it. HOWLING GIANT’s 2nd album is due out September 27th with Blues Funeral Recordings.
Bassist and contributing vocalist Sebastian Baltes says of the song, “”Cybermancer and the Doomsday Express” is one of the dreams that our main character witnesses through a portal in her nexus world. Think car thief, but replace the El Camino in question with a 100-ton mech warrior that takes over his mind and leaves the already post-apocalyptic wasteland in shambles. This song is a riff-driven, heavy-hitting punk rock anthem.”

HOWLING GIANT blast forth a cosmic convergence of pulpy sci-fi themes and blistering psych-metal. Across numerous tours and festival appearances, three EPs and their first full album, the trio harness heavily nuanced progressive riff-rock complemented by otherworldly storytelling and the enduring message that the universe in which we live could stand to loosen up. They deliver this message from stages far and wide as often as possible.
The Space Between Worlds is a concept album that follows the story of a huntress who travels the infinite metaphysical worlds brought into being by the dreams of humankind. In these realms, she encounters a dream eater which threatens to unravel the fabric of reality by devouring dreamers and destroying the dimensional gateways.
Made up of Tom Polzine (guitar/vocals) and Zach Wheeler (drums/vocals) with the recent addition of Sebastian Baltes (bass/vocals), the band has expanded their already impressive vocal harmony approach with the addition of a third voice. Friend of the band Drew Harakal adds extra sonic textures to the album with his organ and synth skills. And Jason Shi of ASG appears with a guest vocal cameo on the track “Ice Castle.”
Highlighting the band's tremendous musical prowess and versatility, The Space Between Worlds is a warp trail of heavy rock and roll so weird it can only be called progressive, giving space to every sonic weapon in the band’s arsenal, and all bound by the album's central concept and the members' towering musicianship.
