Singapore Doom/Stoner Metal band Marijannah is back with new music for the first time since 2019. ‘Music From and Inspired by GiantLands’ is an EP featuring 4 new original compositions that serves as the official soundtrack for GiantLands®, a mixed-reality post-apocalyptic roleplaying game published by Wonderfilled, Inc. and created by game design legend James M. Ward.
When Wonderfilled wanted the sound for a doom-laden future for their science fantasy game universe GiantLands® they knew they needed a great band. “We needed a group not only skilled as composers and instrumentalists, but also as storytellers. That band is Marijannah.” said Wonderfilled president Stephen Dinehart.
On the collaboration, Marijannah’s frontman/drummer Nicholas Wong adds “We’ve been speaking to Stephen since the release of our first record and contributed a track for one of GiantLands’ early trailer videos. Stephen reached out again a few years later and shared his amazing vision with us and we found ourselves aligned with the world that him and his team at GiantLands have created.”
As always, the band spares no expense when it comes to their amazing cover art. Nicholas was also kind enough to give us more details. “The artwork is the adaption of one of the GiantLand’s game’s existing characters by one of our regular art collaborators, Indonesia’s Amos Basilo, who has done several of our single art and t-shirt designs.”
