    Anyone who's into these bands should surely check out the tracks on this split.

    Exceptional.

    I love Grayceon, but do not care for Giant Squid. The new song Grayceon put up on their page is pretty good after a few listens.

    While it's a good debut, it has got it's downfalls. Some sections of the songs just fall flat on their face while others jump out and kick you in yours.

    Pretty solid album though, can only get better

    Their track "The West" is god damn great though

    I see Gayceon is at that place where you can buy the new Agalloch. I have it queued, and if it's good I'll buy it!

    I'm assuming you thought it was good since you bought it?

    What'd ya think of it?

    I thought it was pretty good actually, a little weird though. I figured it'd make more sense after a few spins, so I bought it.

    Is Giant Squid anything like that? I never listened to them because my room mates liked them, and he's a fag.

    But yes, I very much enjoy the drumming from both of these bands. Giant Squid put on quite a killer show too!

    The Giant Squid half of this is also on their gayspace...starts off dangerously close to -core territory and repeats the vocal weaknesses of the otherwise solid debut, but improves significantly from there.
