A formidable beast like its namesake, Giant Squid wields immaculate tone, inspirational songwriting, and organic walls of melody. The 2004 self-released debut, Metridium Field, produced by Billy Anderson (Neurosis, High On Fire, Mr. Bungle, Melvins), garnered the attention of highly eclectic progressive metal label, The End Records, and the band quickly inked a deal in 2005. Given that Metridium Field is what hooked The End in the first place, the band returned to the studio and completely re-recorded the album, taking full advantage of this second chance to re-interpret certain moments in this classic material, and make it sound and feel like they always knew it should.
“The amalgamation of musical genres that Giant Squid presents before us, are tightly orchestrated and interwoven together in such a way that it will take several listens to fully understand how complex the music really is." - Zero Magazine
