Giant Squid is a band that has been emerging in the metal scene as of late, and after a generally well received EP in 2011 and the success of The Ichthyologist, I figured a review for their first work, Metridium Fields (a re-release anyways) was in order. In a nutshell, this album is varied, unique, and surprisingly good.

Might have to revisit this band at some point. The only release of theirs that I like is the Cenotes EP, which I think is brilliant.

That's the only one I've heard... and it's indeed brilliant. Almost afraid to check the others because of that.

From my vague memory this is the best Giant Squid release. Haven't listened to it in about 5 years though.

I regret giving this a 9 when I reviewed it, looking back after many more times listening to it I have trouble picking out any flaws.

So you think you should have scored it higher?

Yeah... It's been a while since I read it but if I recall correctly my main complaint in the review was some of the songs weren't as good as the best ones and the title track was too long. But now I have come around to thinking each song offers something different and the title track is actually a very good length, so I can't really say much negative about the album anymore.
