Though each of these five mostly long songs gets its own Latin scientific-name subtitle, you'll be hard-pressed to decipher their paleontological specifics with the undulating mullah-like boy-and-girl vocals. But that detracts little from Giant Squid's congruent Middle Eastern drones, which somehow link goth, psych and Krautrock into modern metal. One track, "Snakehead (Channidae erectus)," turns cello parts and an Eastern European gypsy two-step into swirling chamber metal that somehow channels obscure old art-bohos such as Certain General and Azalia Snail.
