Known globally as a stoner metal band, Canadians GYPSY CHIEF GOLIATH incorporate three guitar players and a harmonica player giving them a blues edge to their heavy groove. Thin Lizzy meets Black Sabbath, with subtle elements of modern heavy metal here and there, this is a “heavy blues” band that wavers on the edge of metal, stoner, doom and classic rock.
GYPSY CHIEF GOLIATH have achieved a lot in their tenure as a band, they have toured extensively for many years and they have acquired a large fan base. Handling the reins of GCG is quite possibly one of Canada’s hardest working musicians; Al the Yeti Bones, who has previously worked with bands such as The Mighty Nimbus, Georgian Skull and Mister Bones.

“a masterpiece of 70s classic Rock, entangled with Stoner Metal, a dash of Sludge and adding to the mix elements of melody and 90s Grunge for good measure” - Metal-Temple (10/10)
supported by 8 fans who also own “New Machines of the Night”
Stoner rock/metal with a classic rock filter with intelligence. Great song and timing structures, heavy, big catchy riffs. Vocals are in the level. This album definitely has more of an edge compared to their follow-up album, but it's not even fair to compare one album with another of the same artist when they evolve. Can't go wrong at all picking either/or both albums up here on Ripple
