We Can 17:00
WE CAN as I live and breathe you have killed me and I walk around somehow but you have… as I live and breathe you can't save me and I walk around somehow and you can't… yes, I've heard no one's coming home yes, I've heard no one's coming home we can we can build together we can build sand castles covered with beautiful shells and small pieces of colored glass but they will all dissolve back into the sea where they belong nothing that perfect is meant to last nothing that perfect is meant to last we can build nothing we can build nothing I hear you call my name from the water but not for the reason why I think then it started, I saw the end and I did not take a breath I did not take a deep enough breath I did not… as I live and breathe you can't save me and I walk around somehow and only I can only I can

ONCE A SHADOW once a shadow a hazy prediction from the past now sings your song now sings your song never thought they mattered all the crazy stories of what went down but they sing your song now sing your song I have a dream of a hope that is only the shadow of a memory of a tiny cloud passing before the sun yet it spreads, widens, flattens, fades I have a dream of a hope that is only the shadow of a memory of a tiny cloud passing before the sun yet it spreads, widens, flattens, fades like all waves like all shocks spins and turns angles and curves the shape of these dreams half remembered slip the surly bonds of this earth and touch the face of true perfection a perfect face perfect lace find the perfect world for the end of me end of line

A ROAD LESS TRAVELED let go with the flow it's all you have in the end it's all you have in the end you know where that road goes you've been down that road before so come along don't let it pass you by not this time, no, no here's your chance to make your mind and come along you know where that road goes you've been down that road before one two three four

War's End 07:09
WAR’S END and then there came both mist and snow oh, oh, oh and it grew wondrous cold oh, oh, oh and ice mast high came floating by oh, oh, oh as green as emerald oh, oh, oh lay down your head lay down your head, rest your weary soul and sheath your blade the war's over now lay down your arms lay down your arms, rest your weary bones and sheath your blade here you're whole and saved

...what the press is saying...

“It’s heartbreaking and brutal and completely original.”
-CWG Magazine

“Grayceon make a wholly new music, one that grafts medieval cadences and the pastoral textures of early British prog onto a bedrock of supremely headbangable, ornate riffing. And there are no seams. Grayceon make metal, yes (and amazingly heavy metal at that), but they draw equally on …And Justice for All as they do Guillaume de Machaut.”
- Metal Sucks

“The scope of 'All We Destroy' is simply staggering… always challenging but never obvious.”
-Terrorizer

“Grayceon’s sound does not fit into boxes. It spans prog, doom, chamber rock, neo-folk, and other inadequate terms. Perez Gratz’ cello and Doyle’s finger-picking offer fascinating textural combinations. Sometimes she drones and he jangles; sometimes they join forces for a spiky, spiccato-and-palm-muted attack. Doyle does everything a pick player does. He chugs, carves out pinch harmonics, and picks clean tones with clarity. Fingers can be more expressive than picks (see, e.g., Albert Collins, Mark Knopfler), but metal-wise Doyle may be in a league of one.”
-Invisible Oranges

“Like a handful of other great power trios of our day, Grayceon has managed to rip up what's conventional, even by progressive music's standards, and they comfortably jet along a path solely on their own. Tag them however you'd like, the bottom line is that Grayceon creates some of the most compelling and rewardingly innovative music of our day, and All We Destroy nails the bullseye once again.”
-Metal Review

about

Grayceon San Francisco, California

Atypical power trio from San Francisco comprised of guitar, drums, and cello. Screaming melodic lines over distinct guitar "chunk," doom riffs, jazz chord progressions, intricate folk-like delicacies, and just about everything in between, Grayceon's sound defies the boundaries of the metal/rock/progressive genres.
