Hey mom! Watch us!

Honestly, Behold.The Arctopus hasn't slowed down since their stunning EP 'Nano.'. I've waited a long time for this CD to come out and sadly, I expected nonetheless. The line-up is the same as the first one.

A notable difference is the guitar is more of the front, on the EP I got the impression that Colin (on Warr guitar) was the driving force in the songs. 'Skullgrid' seems to be much more guitar driven. The reason for the 4-star rating is cause we are getting much of the in terms of composition, but do not think that any two songs are alike. The songs are brilliantly structured and once again implements heavy jazz, classical and avant-garde techniques. For more information on the sound, you can read my 'Nano-Nucleonic Cyborg Summoning' Review.

Once again, something you should not want to miss from the biggest band in the technical metal scene today. These children play like it's nothing even in the most chaotic of moments. If there ever were a world crisis.I'd turn to them.
