Having already released their sophomore album Outer Heaven a mere six months ago, it seems unbelievable that Toronto’s Greys would be able to release a second album this year, and manage to keep it a total surprise. The lo-fi sister to April’s Outer Heaven, Warm Shadow finds the band experimenting heavily with drone techniques, creating a haunting atmosphere of vague distortion, perfect for October. An eclectic mix of tracks with varying styles - from full on drone tracks like “Colour out of Space” to the 2 minutes of raging noise of “Fresh Hell”, and the 7 minute epic “Space Mountain”- Warm Shadow shows that Greys is much more than just a punk band capable of hemorrhaging ear drums.
