In the world of metal band names, sometimes larger doesn't always mean better. For every Pantera or Mastodon, there is a Scorpions or W.A.S.P. to make sure that the scale is balanced. So what does that say about Giant Squid? Nothing, outside of the fact that the Bay Area band makes riffy, experimental doom that attacks from as many different directions as their namesake, using guitar and cello as their methods of destruction. Their approach is wholly original too, as exhibited on their latest LP Minoans, available to stream for the first time below. Order yours via Translation Loss.
