GRAYCEON Announces ‘Pearl and the End of Days’

New Two-Song Album Coming Early 2013 from Flenser Records With the end of 2012 quickly approaching and Grayceon‘s critically-acclaimed last album All We Destroy (Profound Lore) waning in the rear-view, the San Francisco-based triad prepares for the next chapter in their story: a 30-minute album comprised of two sprawling epics that bend the concentration closer […]

Grayceon – All We Destroy

For over four years now, Jackie Perez Gratz has declined my romantic overtures and while her restraining order against me prevents physical contact within 100ft, I’m still allowed to review her band’s albums.
