Squalus is more or less the continuation of the late great
one of those odd experimental bands that the metal world needs more of.
While the general spirit of Squid is present here, this is a different
beast, starting with the odd instrument configuration.
Mainman Aaron Gregory has traded his guitar for a bass and thus the
lineup is completely guitar-free, with one and often two basses
complemented by swirling odd keyboards and samples to forge a pretty
original style, perhaps best described as progressive sludge.
This isn't for everyone (then again neither was Giant Squid), but it
deserves more attention than it's getting.
