kingmaxwell Cinematic and precise. Really enjoyable metallic tinged prog. Seems like a legit labor of love too. Favorite track: Howling Giant - Masamune.

Justinuff These masters of modern day battle axe and thunder stick warfare absolutely slay and behead the listener with determination, perseverance and sheer might! Calculated but organic battles play out as the story unfolds. Sharp as the Bushido blade and ruthless like the Samurai in battle. Don’t stand in the way, Bastard Samurai at play!

about

Chapter two of Ripple's new Turned to Stone series presents the story of two legendary Japanese sword smiths, Muramasa and Masamune, as told in interconnected musical movements by spacefaring psych-metal warriors Howling Giant and their equally cosmic riff-wielding British contemporaries Sergeant Thunderhoof.

In the two pieces, Muramasa and Masamune have a contest to determine whose sword smithery is superior, each crafting a blade of masterful quality and facing off by the edge of the river.

Instead of the typical approach with two bands contributing stand-alone sides of a record, Howling Giant and Sergeant Thunderhoof wanted to write an album that was thematically cohesive. Each side features a 20-minute song assembled via sharing of melodic ideas between the two bands during the writing process, and telling the story from the perspective of one of the sword smiths.

The result is a single piece of ambitious songcraft created by two riff-prog legends leaving another impressive mark on the heavy rock landscape.
