The press release by Profound Lore:
GRAYCEON - Complete New Album/Announce Release Show Bay Area atypical progressive rock/metal three-piece GRAYCEON have completed their new and strongest release to date, their third full-length album entitled “All We Destroy”. The band have also announced their record release show on Feb 11th (at Bottom Of The Hill, San Francisco) to coincide with the release. And it will be at this event where the band will be giving away free copies of the new album for all those who attend (more news on this following said album announcement).
Since their formation in the mid-part of the last decade, GRAYCEON would immediately be recognized as one of the most creative and unique forces within the Bay Area underground metal scene, parallel to such contemporaries as LUDICRA, HAMMERS OF MISFORTUNE, SLOUGH FEG, AMBER ASYLUM, ASUNDER, and WORM OUROBOROS, these bands representing a movement in a scene which many have claimed as America’s best and most artistically potent.
Always hard to classify, the eclectic nature of GRAYCEON has always worked to the band’s advantage when trying to pinpoint the unique and epic nature of their music. Featuring members of the VOIVOD-esque Bay Area forward-thinking thrash/punk metal band WALKEN and cellist/vocalist Jackie Perez Gratz (of GIANT SQUID, and who also has served as the recording cellist for bands like AGALLOCH, OM, ASUNDER, CATTLE DECAPITATION, AMBER ASYLUM, and NEUROSIS), GRAYCEON is solely comprised of cello, guitars, drums, and vocals (male and female respectively). By combining elements of progressive rock/metal, sludge/doom metal, neo-classical chamber music, and neo-folk, “All We Destroy” follows the band’s previous two releases (namely their self-titled debut and their sophomore release “This Grand Show”) and builds upon the sound they formulated into something heavier, and more moving, while at the same time, something much more frantic and devastating.
Overall, “All We Destroy” is an album that deploys a punishing seductive power. One of ferocity, beauty, and modern-day tragedy.
To be released officially March 1st, tracklisting for “All We Destroy” goes as follows:
1. Dreamer Deceived
3. We Can
4. Once A Shadow
5. A Road Less Traveled
6. War's End
An MP3 of the track “Shellmounds” can be heard HERE
