Grayceon is an atypical three-piece from San Francisco comprised of electric cello, guitar, drums, and vocals. Pulling together an extremely diverse range of musical influences and writing styles, Grayceon's sound defies the boundaries of the metal/rock/progressive genres. Screaming melodic lines over distinct guitar "chunk," doom riffs, jazz chord progressions, intricate folk-like delicacies, and just about everything in between can be found in a single Grayceon track. The cello proficiency and the guitar finger picking style alone are unprecedented in heavy music. And although the vocals are sparse and the drumming unconventional, all elements are intertwined effortlessly to give the arrangements a fluid feel that may not be present in less able hands. Alternate low tuning both on cello and guitar also contribute to their unique sound.
Since 2006, Grayceon have been recording and performing nationally, and have received critics' praise for their self-titled debut CD (Vendlus), their 7" split (The End) with friends, Giant Squid, and their sophomore release, "This Grand Show" which was released November 2008 (Vendlus). Grayceon recently finished their first European tour in early 2010 and will be releasing their third full-length album, titled "All We Destroy" on March 1, 2011 by Profound Lore Records.
