"Sonic Abuse Top 10"

“The only way to be more metal would be to involve Dio in some way…an incredible record.” - Sonic Abuse

"Gloriously over the top"

"This record has guts and no mistake – it churns and bubbles with anthemic enthusiasm, ... It’s so gloriously over the top and pompous, it’s difficult to find fault in something so expertly crafted. 9/10" - Planet Loud Dot Com

""Gift Horse" is one of this year's must-haves"

"Gift Horse is one goddamned solid album that blends a variety of styles while remaining crushing and catchy throughout its entirety... MOSE delivers an eclectic, almost undefinable, brand of heaviness that could easily make its way to ears of the masses. "Gift Horse" is one of this year's must-haves." -

"An easy pick for my Top 10"

"excellent relationship between harmony and groove, and some of the most clever use of a keyboards I've heard in years, this was an easy pick for my Top 10." - Metal Injection


“10/10, nothing less!” - Bang Bang Music Blog

"Grade: A+"

"compelling, layered, and intriguing... easily one of the best albums I’ve heard all year. Grade: A+" - Metal Army America

"My "Record of 2010""

"Gift Horse is a metal album with grooving hard-rock riffs, great prog-like epic songs and synths that add to the grandness of the sound, yet this still feels like a band that knows their sludge... Gift Horse just declared itself my ‘Record of 2010’" - Sputnick Music

Mose Giganticus is a four-piece, progressive heavy metal band from Philadelphia, PA. Incubated in the “Do-It-Yourself” music scene of West Philadelphia, Mose Giganticus has evolved to blend the ominous, lumbering weight of sludge and stoner metal with the bombastic pomp and technological expertise of progressive metal, creating a wall of sound that is dark, heavy, and baroque. As front-man and creative force behind Mose Giganticus, Matt Garfield maintains the art of the “well crafted hook” by infusing winding guitar riffs with his signature use of synthesizers and vocoders, producing songs that are as memorable as they are crushing. In July 2010, Mose Giganticus released their Relapse Records debut LP, "Gift Horse," which went on to garner international critical acclaim, including multiple "Best of 2010" listings worldwide (Sonic Abuse London, Metal Injection US, BangBang Canada). Currently, Mose Giganticus continues to tour year-round, painstakingly forging their position on the national touring circuit. To date, Mose Giganticus has performed at over 400 shows and festivals (including The Fest 7, 8, & 9 in Gainesville, FL and upcoming dates at SXSW 2011) across the continental United States, western Canada, the Yukon Territory, and Alaska in their Waste-Vegetable-Oil fueled bus.
