Fu Manchu, Gigantoid LP

RM105.00 MYR

Southern California hard rock main-stays Fu Manchu are back with new album Gigantoid. After almost 25 years together, and following last year's Scion A/V Club split 7'' with friends MOAB and 2009's ''Signs of Infinite Power,'' Scott Hill and company return with their first full-length album in close to five years. Recorded with Andrew Giacumakis, singer / guitarist for the aforementioned MOAB at his studio in Simi Valley, CA, the album features a slightly more primitive, raw and ultra fuzzed-out sound than previous releases.
''We wrote 17 new songs for this record and got our favorite 9 songs out of that together,'' says Hill. ''We were planning on releasing a 'part 2' record later this year but have plans for some of the other songs to appear in early 2015 to line up with our 25-year anniversary''
