"Finished People" 2014In every genre there is a band that stands out, a band that plays a significant role in the relevance and history of the genre, and Sleeping Giant is one of those bands.

Sleeping Giant is a Metal-core band from Redlands, California in the United States. Apparently or originally when they started all its members were a part of xDeathStarX, a Christian straight edge metal-core band (2002-2009), who were also signed to Facedown Records.

What one gets from listening to Sleeping Giant is that their purpose is to spread the love of Jesus Christ and to present the love of Christ and Father with passion and zeal. In short what they bring to the hardcore scene is end days worship that is set in their hearts to bring glory to God.

The name Sleeping Giant originated from the fact that people often sleep in their relationship with God, and the way we sometimes choose to live. However it’s time to wake up and do something about it, that’s the meaning of Sleeping Giant.

The purpose of Sleeping Giant has always been to give glory to God and the release of ‘Finished People’ is no different. Continue reading »
