Grayceon is an atypical three-piece from San Francisco comprised of electric cello, guitar, drums and vocals. Pulling together an diverse range of musical influences and writing styles, the group’s sound defies the limitations of the metal, rock and progressive genres with screaming melodic lines over distinct guitar chunks, doom riffs, jazz chord progressions, intricate folk-like delicacies and just about everything in between. Grayceon has been recording and performing nationally since 2006, and received high praise for their self-titled debut CD, their 7-inch split with Giant Squid (with whom they toured North America) and their sophomore album This Grand Show on Vendlus Records. In 2010 the band completed their first European tour with Jucifer. All We Destroy is Grayceon at the height of their powers, their heaviest and most epic undertaking to date. The album fuses the progressive metal tendencies of bands such as Voivod and the Norwegian avant-garde movement (e.g. Ved Buens Ende) with elements of doom / sludge metal, chamber music and neo-folk.Grayceon is taking their game up another notch in 2011 with cellist / vocalist Jackie Perez Gratz coming off her stirring and moving performance on the new Agalloch album Marrow of the Spirit. Look for upcoming live appearances including a set at SXSW 2011.
