The Giant Gila Monsters invite you to experience our first album, Secret Seed!
Secret Seed is a musical fable in the tradition of other rock musicals like Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s “Once More with Feeling,” and Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Secret Seed tells the story of a young woman discovering her true faerie nature, giving birth, and battling her offspring for her life. The story can be described as an odd feminist fairytale.
The album’s musical influences run from Celtic folk, to Natalie Merchant, to New Order, and Tool. There is a mixture of dreampop guitars, ABBA vocals, and frenetic drumming, all combined with a carefully arranged orchestra. The album also features five different vocalists.
For the most complete experience we’d love you to choose our deluxe edition. This includes the fairytale book, a limited edition lithoprint, the CD, and a gila monster!
The CD is also available by itself at:
or on itunes and most of the other digital music stores. Just search for the Giant Gila Monsters and Secret Seed.
We hope that you enjoy our album!
