GIANT X

(Deutsch)

GIANT X - Die neue Band um Rock'n'Rolf Kasparek und Peter J. Jordan
Debütalbum "I" erscheint am 18. Januar 2013

Das große Geheimnis, das seit Monaten in vielen Internetforen als heißestes Thema gehandelt wird, lüftet nun seine ersten spannenden Details: Bei GIANT X handelt es sich um die spektakuläre neue Band von Rolf Kasparek und Peter J. Jordan. Rolf ist seit mehr als 20 Jahren Kopf, Gitarrist und Sänger der deutschen Metal-Galeere RUNNING WILD, gehört zu den charismatischsten Musikern der internationalen Hard'n'Heavy-Szene und genießt Kultstatus rund um den Globus. Sein Freund und Partner Peter J. Jordan stieg 2005 als Gitarrist bei RUNNING WILD ein und hat überdies als Musiker, Komponist, Arrangeur und Produzent mit Künstlern wie Tim Bendzko, Francis Buchholz (SCORPIONS), Thorsten Wingenfelder (FURY IN THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE), Christina Stürmer oder auch FAIR WARNING gearbeitet. Das Debütalbum "I" von GIANT X wird am 18. Januar 2013 über Steamhammer/SPV veröffentlicht und dürfte speziell Fans von traditionellem Hard Rock begeistern.

Zustande gekommen ist diese aufsehenerregende Zusammenarbeit durch die unerwartet euphorischen Reaktionen, die es weltweit auf die Kasparek/Jordan-Komposition "Burning Wheels" (vom Album Rock/Metal über EMI Production Music) gab, auf der Kasparek als Sänger zu hören ist. Durch diese positiven Reaktionen ermutigt beschlossen Jordan und Kasparek gemeinsam weitere Stücke zu komponieren und sie unter dem Bandnamen GIANT X interessierten Plattenfirmen vorzustellen. Den Zuschlag bekam die Hannoveraner Company Steamhammer/SPV, bei der bereits die aktuelle RUNNING WILD-Scheibe "Shadowmaker" erschienen ist. "RUNNING WILD haben einen klar definierten Sound, den die Fans weltweit von ihnen erwarten. GIANT X bedienen ein breiteres musikalisches Spektrum, bei dem Rolf und ich uns mal von einer ganz anderen Seite präsentieren können", erklärt Jordan. "Bei unseren Songs handelt es sich bewusst um vielschichtige Nummern, die eher in der Tradition von KISS, QUEEN, THIN LIZZY oder VAN HALEN aber auch BILLY TALENT stehen, sprich: Rockmusik in der Tradition der Siebziger, Achtziger und Neunziger Jahre – unserer gemeinsamen musikalischen Wurzeln. Wichtig war uns vor allem, dass der Spaß, die Leichtigkeit und Spontanität unserer Zusammenarbeit herauszuhören ist."

Insgesamt 13 brandneue Songs, allesamt aus der Feder von Jordan und Kasparek, werden auf dem Debütalbum zu finden sein. Produziert und gemischt wurde die Scheibe von Peter J. Jordan, allerdings – so Jordan – mit tatkräftiger Unterstützung durch Kasparek und Niki Nowy, dem Live-Mischer von RUNNING WILD. Weiterführende Pläne der neuen Band gibt es zur Zeit noch nicht, laut Jordan und Kasparek lassen die beiden jedoch alles auf uns zukommen und schließen nichts aus. Es bleibt also weiterhin spannend!

GIANT X - The new band founded by Rock'n'Rolf Kasparek and Peter J. Jordan
Debut album "I" scheduled for release in January 2013

The big secret that fans have been speculating about in a number of Internet forums is out at last: GIANT X is the spectacular new band founded by Rolf Kasparek and Peter J. Jordan. Rolf has been the mastermind, guitarist and vocalist of the German metal flagship RUNNING WILD for more than 30 years, is one of the most charismatic musicians of the international metal scene and enjoys cult status around the globe. His friend and partner Peter J. Jordan joined the RUNNING WILD fold in 2005 as a guitarist and has worked as a musician, composer, arranger and producer with german artists such as Tim Bendzko, Francis Buchholz (SCORPIONS), Thorsten Wingenfelder (FURY IN THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE), Christina Stürmer and FAIR WARNING. GIANT X‘s debut album "I" will be out on Steamhammer/SPV on January 18th in Germany, January 21st in Europe and January 22nd in USA/Canada and is set to delight particularly fans of traditional hard rock.

This sensational collaboration was sparked by the unexpectedly euphoric reactions from all over the world to the Kasparek/Jordan composition "Burning Wheels" (off EMI Production Music’s Rock/Metal album), which features Kasparek on vocals. Encouraged by those positive responses, Jordan and Kasparek decided to co-compose more tracks and offer them to interested record companies under the band name of GIANT X. They decided on the Hanover label, Steamhammer/SPV, who already released the current RUNNING WILD opus "Shadowmaker". RUNNING WILD have a clearly defined sound which their fans worldwide have come to expect of them. GIANT X have a broader musical range which allows Rolf and myself to present ourselves from a totally different side", Jordan explains. "Our material consists of consciously multi-layered numbers, more in the tradition of KISS, QUEEN, THIN LIZZY, VAN HALEN but also BILLY TALENT, in other words: rock music in the tradition of the seventies, eighties and nineties – our shared musical roots. The main thing for us was that people would be able hear the lightness and spontaneity of our collaboration."

A total of 13 brand new songs, all of them penned by Jordan and Kasparek, will feature on GIANT X’s debut album. The recording was produced and mixed by Peter J. Jordan, with lots of support from Kasparek and RUNNING WILD's live mixer Niki Nowy. No plans for GIANT X‘s future have yet been made, but according to Jordan and Kasparek they are happy to "take things as they come. We don’t rule anything out at this point." So the suspense will continue!
