Sliver Moon 04:30
Sliver moon, goodbye moon I’m waiting Waiting is sometimes part of the game Waiting is sometimes too much shame Sliver moon, goodbye moon Sliver moon, goodbye moon Sliver moon, goodbye moon I’m waiting Waiting is sometimes part of the game Waiting is sometimes too much pain

Til death, from birth Lines tie between us Your breath, I breathe No one lies in between We may seem as one, but we are many We may seem not much, but we are plenty Til death, from birth Lines tie between us Your breath, I breathe No one lies in between We’ve had our time Time of our lives We’ve had our time You and I Let the wind fill our sail Let the wind fill our sail Let the wind fill our sail

Scorpion 04:39
In the darkness of day By the light of the night She waits like a scorpion Finding the perfect time to strike She waits patiently Hiding in plain sight but no one sees Feel her in the shadows of my mind Taking over what is mine Take the best of you Take the best of you Take the best of you...

Let It Go 06:22
Falling free Rush down, rush down Falling free Rush down, rush down When you find the one you love don’t let go When you find the one you love don’t let go When you find the one you love don’t let go When you find the one you love don’t let go LET GO LET GO LET GO LET GO Falling free Rush down, rush down Falling free Rush down, rush down When you find the one you love don’t let go LET GO When you find the one you love don’t let go LET GO When you find the one you love don’t let go LET GO When you find the one you love don’t let go LET GO

Slow Burn 05:51
It’s a slow burn Regrets there are many I don’t care where you come from Respect should be in your vocabulary Fuel the fire Fan the flames How does it feel being the frauds that you are? Let out the seams Unravel the hems Let out the seams Unravel the hems, that flag has failed What if you knew what you know now? What could I have said to change your mind? What if you knew what you know now? What do you have to say? What if you knew what you know now? How could I have changed your mind? What if you knew what you know now? Now what do you have to say for yourself?

I wanna show life in the sun I wanna sing songs for everyone How will you know the point in me? Now will you judge by what you see? How many clicks will it Take to make you Make us feel? I wanna live life in the sun I wanna sing ‘til all the songs are sung How many clicks will it Take to make you Make us feel? How many How many How many To make us feel? Hmmmm...

Pink Rose 02:31
Mama, take me home Mama, take me home Please, Mama, take me home There you are wearing your pink dress In his arms like you were never apart And now you’re dancing in the sand Without a care upon this earth And everything is in its place Mama, take me home Mama, take me home, please, Mama

Dreamers 07:37
In our thrall Despite our thrall In our thrall We dream In our thrall Despite our thrall In our thrall We dream We are dreamers Pure dreamers All dreamers Has one been beyond their illusion of life? The island, the island inside you In our thrall Despite our thrall In our thrall We dream In our thrall Despite our thrall In our thrall We dream We are dreamers Pure dreamers All dreamers The island, the island inside you We are pieces, pieces of sand in the wind

about

What the press is saying about IV...

"Despite the fact that it has been a long seven years since Grayceon’s last album (and a still-stingy five since the excellent Pearl and the End of Days EP), the tight, economical forty minutes of IV present Grayceon at their most clarified. The album still kindles the progressive and curiously meandering spirit of Gracyeon’s previous albums (in particular This Grand Show), but it maintains a sharper focus by not strolling too freely across knotty epics, and never loses sight of the power of those boundary-pushing elements to still sock the listener with inescapably emotional gut-punches." -Last Rites

"Hailing from San Francisco, Grayceon are a post-metal trio featuring three highly respected names in the Bay Area metal scene: Jackie Perez Gratz — current vocalist and cellist for the underwater-themed doom band Giant Squid, former member of avant-garde outfit Amber Asylum, and session musician for the likes of Neurosis, Today Is the Day and Agalloch (RIP) — and Max Doyle and Zack Farwell of neighboring thrash-metal band Walken. The band has spent the past 12 years churning out doom-dirges with a dreamy, neoclassical flair, as romantic as they are roiling.

Following a five-year hiatus, the group is gearing up to drop its fourth album, titled — wait for it — IV. Recorded with Jack Shirley at the Atomic Garden (a space previously haunted by local heroes Deafheaven), the follow-up to 2013's Pearl and the End of Days, out later this spring, finds the band taking its sinister love story in an ethereal direction, with a noticeable uptick in swirling melodies and lush sonic textures. That said, Grayceon's hardly done dishing out the venom: The album's first single "Scorpion" stands among the most lethal cuts ever concocted by the trio, with a central riff so searing, you could fry an egg on it." -Revolver

"Grayceon, at full tilt, sounds like the work of at least seven people, but in reality, they're a trio. Drums, guitar, and cello. There are other metal bands out there that use violin or cello, but for my money, none of them makes it sound as seamless as Grayceon does." -Metal Bandcamp

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.
