Abnormal Listening Habits Nothing more can be added to which has already been said. I have enjoyed this bands progression and evolution on each subsequent. Space Between Worlds is wondrous tale performed truly brilliantly.
Once reaching for the stars Howling Giant now sits among them.

Harry Harrison What can I say except Howling Giant have done it again. One more sterling outing from the guys who bring majestic heavy-psych & sci-fi imagery together to produce something that I have never been able to pigeonhole. I know I have missed one of their albums but this one is so good I had to get it as soon as I heard it. I’ll be back for the earlier one……………”leave no man behind!” Anyone who likes their metal epic, all consuming and just a wall of sound, Howling Giant is for you. Favorite track: The Orb.

about

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.

With the addition of new bassist Sebastian Baltes (son of longtime ACCEPT bassist Peter Baltes), the band has expanded its 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 Howling Giant's arsenal, and all bound by the album's central concept and the members' towering musicianship.

Track Name: Comet Rider
Look up, at the waking world
And watch the skies collapse
Burning out, when I close my eyes
Behold the nexus

Endless water, crashing down on me

Fading light
The Archer hunts alone
Her arrows piercing through the night
Brace yourselves
The sky is caving in
I feel a thousand worlds collide

The sun, breaking through the darkest cloud
Calling out, just to hear my voice

Endless waves, carry me away

Fading light
The Archer hunts alone
Her arrows piercing through the night
Brace yourselves
The sky is caving in
I feel a thousand worlds collide
Track Name: Nomad
Pass through the fields
Follow the river to the sea
Stand tall as the Evergreens
Tread light on the needles that cover the ground

Blue skies in the Hunter's eye
Another trail goes cold
And the well runs dry
Where it used to flow
Down the mountainside, to the fields below

By the light of the moon
The forest takes a different shape
And the Spirits awaken
They showed me the signs
In every broken branch and the leaves that have fallen

Blue skies in the Hunter's eye
Another trail goes cold
And the well runs dry
Where it used to flow
Down the mountainside, to the fields below
Track Name: Ghosts in The Well
Voices in the ground
Call for me
Rising up from unmarked graves
Make me whole again
I am lost inside this place
Close the well
Make me whole
I’m unraveling
Make me whole
I’m unraveling
Track Name: The River Guide
Hold your lantern high
Search for the glitter of gold
When the cold takes your breath
Feeling under duress
Have faith in the river guide

Hold your lantern high
Search for the glitter of gold
There’s a hole in your chest
Where your lover would rest
Follow the river guide

As I entered the cavern,
My vision left me
The walls seemed alive
And every step was met with shuddering cold
In the distance a radiating light beckoned
And I made my way forward
Drawing closer my fears left me
And a feeling of comfort
Filled my entire being
There in the chamber filled with light
I abandoned the world above

Hold your lantern high
Search for the glitter of gold
When the cold takes your breath
Feeling under duress
Have faith in the river guide
Track Name: Ice Castle
Raise your gates
Let the peasants in
As they try to run
From winters edge

But the howling winds
And the darkening sky
Mean nothing to the lord within

Hiding in your frozen castle

Embrace the storm
Lock you out
I’ll raise my sword
And cut you down

Hostage to the madness
Isolation

Echoing voices
Ringing through your halls
Whisper words of doom
Heed the ravens call

Kill the last man standing
In your spire you will die alone

Hiding in your broken castle

Embrace the storm
Lock you out
I’ll raise my sword
And cut you down

Hostage to the madness
Isolation

Demons closing in with their glowing eyes
Marching under blood red skies

Embrace the storm
Lock you out
I’ll raise my sword
And cut you down
Track Name: Cybermancer and The Doomsday Express
Fanatics on the run
Warnings on station
They’re building a machine
Hiding in the wasteland
Apocalyptic planet in dismay

The lab is overrun
Chaotic invitation
I’ll take the captains helm
Master the invention

The cables are connecting to my veins
Computer sending signals to my brain

My engines run on fuel injected rage
It’s better to explode than fade away

Robotic claw
Circular saw
I’ll tear your face to shreds

The cables are connecting to my veins
Computer sending signals to my brain

My engines run on fuel injected rage
It’s better to explode than fade away

Forget my name
Assimilate

My engines run on fuel injected rage
It’s better to explode than fade away
Track Name: Everlight
Under the stars
Step through the veil
Into the mountain
Bend to my will

Cast down your lightning
Jumpstart my sleeping heart
Shaking with the energy
Steady my hand

There stands the beast
Still water's edge

Under the stars
Taking control
Look in my eyes
Bend to my will

Untamed Chimera
Looking down, standing at the water's edge
Enter the mountain
It’s breaking down the gateways to my world

Souls raining down
Washing over me
Losing control

Close my eyes and
Breathing Fire
Burning through me
Eyesight failing
I can’t find my way through the smoke
Lost inside this waking nightmare

Cast down your lightning
Enter the mountain
Stepping through the gateways to my world

Under the stars
Step through the veil
Into the mountain
Bend to my will
Track Name: The Orb
In the night
Sun starved beast will rise
From the infinite void
To devour my life

Those burning eyes
Send shivers down
Straight through my spine

Stay awake by the candlelight
My eyes grow heavy as lead
Wait for my devil to arrive
I fall back in

Can you feel the heartbeat
Rattle in my chest
Call for salvation and I’m running out of breath

Those burning eyes
Forever mine

Cold winds will carry
The scent of my blood
Evil forces will race against the sun

Those burning eyes
Forever mine

Stay awake

Those burning eyes
Forever mine
Those burning eyes
By candlelight
Track Name: Stone Giant
Silver chariot
Let the creature guide your way
Sun kissed spire
On the floating mountain side

Starlight Carrier
Hold your lantern to the sky
Climb the wall higher
Keep your arrows at your side
Hold your lantern to the sky
Keep your arrows at your side

Raining fire
Wild one, brought low
Let the wellspring overflow

Starlight Carrier
Hold your lantern to the sky
Climb the wall higher
Keep your arrows at your side
Starlight Carrier
Hold your lantern to the sky
Climb the wall higher
Keep your arrows at your side
Hold your lantern to the sky
Keep your arrows at your side
