Formed from the remains of the metal outfit known as 'WEAPON', giantrider started as a side project whilst searching for a new drummer to fit their specs. In the mean time cHrist moved his 6 string shredding abilities over to bass/big ass amps duty and vocals. Silent Mike put down his bass and sat down at the throne behind the skins. giantrider is most widely known for their live shows.
"Proudly wearing their influences on their sleeve, Giantrider are a raw, stripped-down minimalistic Stoner/Doom band from Portland,OR/Fargo,ND. When I say minimalistic I say it in the truest sense of the word. The band consists of only two members and two instruments: Chris (Bass) and Silent Mike (Drums). The bass tone absolutely sizzles as uber-fuzzy tones protrude through the amplifiers all while cymbals crash amongst a steady rhthym. This shit is Goddamn electric. Listen now! "
