More Info:

From one's lowest moments, the greatest adventures can begin, and true freedom can be discovered. Such is the journey that The Ichthyologist, sophomore release from Giant Squid, takes listeners on from its first pounding, other worldly crescendo to the final sweet release at its conclusion. Based on a yet to be released graphic novel of the same name, written by Giant Squid founding member, Aaron Gregory, The Ichthyologist is a concept album of grand scale. Through the thoughts of the album's protagonists, a man stripped of his humanity and left with nothing but the sea in front of him, comes a story about adapting in inhuman ways to survive the shock of human loss and total emotional tragedy, becoming something else entirely in the process.
