Giant Squid stream new album2011-10-10 by Alex Newton | 16 Comments
|Progressive metal band Giant Squid's new album Cenotes has been posted in its entirety by National Public Radio's First Listen program. The album comes two and a half years after its predecessor, The Ichthyologist, and continues the story of that album's protagonist.|
According to the band's website, "The middle eastern aesthetic that [Giant Squid] has embraced throughout its entire cannon consumes this new material to its core. Riff worship meets gypsy jangle and Arabesque vocal harmonies, further enhancing the band's trademark, otherworldly, musical storytelling."
Cenotes is scheduled for release on October 25th through Translation Loss records.

Their last album was kinda boring.
this one takes a few listens. be patient people
love this band
I'd say The Ichthyologist was the antithesis of boring music. It was a terrific mix of styles in which every song sounded totally different from the last and succeeded through inventive songwriting and perfect tone color.
Okay...just had to get that out. This one is a lot more cohesive in overall sound, but is still pretty diverse and interesting with the Indian influences.
Their music may be boring to the casual listener. Giant Squid is not one of the easiest bands to listen to. Their music takes multiple listens before your able to fully grasp what is going on in the music. Too me the Ichthyologist was a 4.5-5.0 record.
I'll definitely check this out. Awesome band.
never could get into these dudes
...i still don't like your tone.
love this band
The Ichthyologist was amazing. I can't wait to give this a listen.
Also lol at the pregnant chick in the picture.
This is more emotional than anything they've ever done, in my opinion.
amazing band, will listen to this later
much better lol
but yeah, this is definitely a grower if you're not yet into them.
