"Music you missed: Machine Translations, HTMLflowers and more from the Australian underground"

"...My gauge for what constitutes great stoner rock is “how big does it make me feel?”. If a band’s got it, I’m super-sized into fuelled, filled-up vastness, even if just for a molten hot moment.

Sydney band Hypergiant size me right up with their debut LP of space-slash-stoner metal and its “we gave it all” quality..." - The Guardian

"Review: Hypergiant – Father Sky"

"...the Sydney quartet have evidently worked hard to draw in a wider breadth of inspiration. Flinging in as much Cave In and Hawkwind as Sabbath, Mastodon and fellow Aussies Adrift for Days, the album undulates from grooving riff territory, to sombre doom, to breakneck sections, all with ease..." - Pinnacle Music

"Hypergiant – Father Sky"

"...Hypergiant operate on the same plane as their predecessors despite their relative youth. Father Sky is the group’s debut offering, but feels as polished and well-rounded as those early-millennium classics, right down to the concept presentation ..." - Heavy Blog is Heavy

"Hypergiant - Father Sky (Album Review)"

"...Hypergiant are a difficult band to pigeon-hole. To break it down in their purest, simplest form, they are a metal band, but the album careens wildly between all of the sub genres in a most satisfying way..."

"...The sound of Father Sky is top notch and the band is tight and confident, and it shows..." - Outlaws of the Sun

"HYPERGIANT ‘Father Sky’ Album Review"

"...They’ve interspersed their powerful metal bludgeon with an aural soundscape suited to an alien horror film, which certainly adds colour to their stylistic attack..." - Desert Highways

"ALBUM REVIEW: Hypergiant – Father Sky"

"...“Father Sky” is easily one of the better Aussie releases to come out in 2017 and worth your time if you love this sort of thing..." - The Rock Pit


Father Sky (2017)
Planetcracker EP (2014)



Named for the ultra-massive class of star, Hypergiant fuse the monolithic riffage of stoner rock with the intricacies of progressive metal to create a sound both colossal and nuanced.

Drawing inspiration from a broad range of artists, from the revered godfathers of the riff, Black Sabbath, to the modern behemoths such as Mastodon, Sleep and Baroness, with a hint of the psychedelic space-rock characteristic of Pink Floyd and Hawkwind, Hypergiant are steadily carving out a sound of their own from the molten sludge of these combined influences.

Formed in 2011, Hypergiant has shared the stage with a number of acclaimed international bands including Red Fang, Greenleaf and Sasquatch, as well as a wide swathe of Australian heavy bands across the country.

In 2017 the band released their debut full length, Father Sky, an hour-long odyssey of riffage, lyrically exploring humanity's potential for either greatness or self-destruction.

Recorded and mixed by Clayton Segelov (Full of Hell, Adrift for Days, Sleepmakeswaves) at The Brain Studios and mastered by Brad Boatright (Sleep, High on Fire, Converge), Father Sky is an ambitious and eclectic slab that sees the band traverse sonic ground ranging from throbbing stoner metal to crushing sludge to swirling, hazy space rock, with every shade of heavy in between.
