WHEN: JULY 15TH | LOVE.LIKE.ALRIGHT: LOVE
When you come across a submission in your inbox and see that the band’s influences range from Pink Floyd’s ‘Animals’, Queens of the Stone Age’s debut and Thee Oh Sees’ ‘Mutilator’ you know you’re gonna be in for a good time. Queen Giza is a band based in Brooklyn and Charleston in the US of A and this is their debut album Machine Master Demon Dream. The record is described by the band as a “something of a two act rock opera” and the plot (in a “sentence”, the band says) is (and I quote):
“An old man builds a humanoid in his younger image, implanting his memories; the robot discovers what he is, hunts down and kills creator with some difficulties (Machine Master Side), and then the creator has a postmortem dream/nightmare focused on losing his soul to the robot/demons/devil (Demon Dream Side). The 2nd side is formatted around the stages of sleep/dreaming and the bodily/brain functions, and all songs flow into each other. “
Simply put, it’s badass.
