‘Kingdom’, ‘Spiritkeeper’, ‘Comets’, and ‘Gaea’ make up the project’s tracklist, and will be used as the official soundtrack for GiantLands®, a science-fantasy roleplaying game published by Wisconsin-based creative studio Wonderfilled, created by Stephen E. Dinehart & James M. Ward with Gary Gygax Jr.
In a press release statement, Dinehart, who is also the president of Wonderfilled shared: “We need a group not only skilled as composers and instrumentalists, but also as storytellers. That band is Marijannah.”
Nicholas Wong, frontman and drummer of the band spoke on the root of this cross-border collaboration: “We’ve been speaking to Stephen since the release of our first record and contributed a track for one of Giantlands’ early trailer videos. Stephen reached out again a few years later and shared his amazing vision with us and we found ourselves aligned with the world that him and his team at GiantLands have created.”
The band, comprising Wong, Nicholas Ng, Muhammad Azri, and Rasyid Juraimi of Wormrot, have released two albums prior. The first of the two, Till Marijannah was cited in “5 Stoner Metal Highlights from 2018” by renowned American music publication Pitchfork.
The quartet also performed the entirety of their second album, Istanah at The Projector - its live recording was directed by acclaimed photographer Ryan Chang and its recording and mixing was done by Snakeweed Studios.
