ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The band that is now GunsLikeGirls formed in February of 2005 in northern New Jersey. Formerly known as "Emma" the band made some changes in lineup and sound and was reborn as GunsLikeGirls. Thanks to the differences in musical tastes amongst the six members, GunsLikeGirls combines elements of aggressive metal, pop punk and experimental indie rock to form a style that is all their own.

GunsLikeGirls met up with producer Jesse Cannon (A Static Lullaby, Senses Fail, The Cure) and began preproduction in the summer of 2005 for what would end up being the band's debut release..."The Octopus In The Igloo."

GLG and Cannon then spent the fall of 2005 locked away in the recording studio, tracking every day. Finally in January of 2006 the record was mastered at West West Side Mastering Studios in New York.

"The Octopus In the Igloo" has something for everyone. The record is just as heavy as it is melodic and just as melodic as it is strange.

"Prices Switch" opens the record, wasting no time introducing you to the intensity that GunsLikeGirls is all about. The song has big guitars with intricate keyboards and a chorus you will never forget.

It then goes into the band's single "Hand Control." This catchy song keeps you tuned in the whole time, building up the suspense until the epic ending.

The next track is "Sugarberry." All we can say is...this is the last thing you'd expect to be on a record like this...you will be surprised.

"He Is Not A Bird." is the next track. This song has a strange experimental feel with a brutal aggressive chorus. The timing and tempo changes will not let you down.

Next up is a fast paced aggressive song called "The Moore We See." Throughout the song, GunsLikeGirls hits you with brutal parts over and over again, and just when you think it can't get any more destructive, the song continues the onslaught until the end of the song.

After that, "The Octopus In the Igloo" lets you take a break with a song called "Intro To Obsession." This song is very pretty with an amazing vocal performance. It demonstrates the diversity of style in GunsLikeGirls.

"Intro To Obsession" takes you right into "Clean To Sweep." This song combines an intricate instrumental preformance with vocals that will have you singing and shouting along. The song shows great musicianship and tops it all off with an epic ending.

"The Octopus In the Igloo" ends with a slaughter in a song called "There Were People With Morals." This is the song you play in your car as loud as you can with the windows open so everyone that comes near you runs away. It is the heaviest song on the record and a perfect one to end it with.

Whether you've listened to bands like Guns Like Girls or you have not..."The Octopus In The Igloo" was born spawning from raw power and six young men's love for music. This record would sit well in any rock fan's collection.

holy crap
this cd is simply amazing, I really like He Is Not A Bird and There Were People With Morals. They are incredibly good songs and You guys (the band members of GunsLikeGirls) should have more songs like them, fast paced with plenty of screaming. I like every song on this cd and this cd has helped me through a couple of bad days and I have fallen in love with this band.

thank you GunsLikeGirls, keep it up

DIEGO

This cd is truely artwork, this band is very talented.
This cd is very good, the cd start off strong and ends strong. When you listen to it you want to listen to the entire cd and want more. If you like bands like The Fall of Troy, Chiodos or the Kinison, give these guys a listen.

Some of the best music I have herd in a long time.
Wow for a first album this is amazing.Actually by any standards it is amazing. GunsLikeGirls combime a mix of screams and harmonic singing, rough cords and classic beats, to make a CD that is worthy of 5 stars in the eyes of anyone who loves metal, and it's something that I can listen to with my mom.

justin von strasburg

one of my favorites of the year so far!
The Octopus in the Igloo has really well written and catchy songs but the arrangement of the songs on the record could have been better. It's mainly the placement of Sugarberry (the reason for the 4 stars). It is a good tune but should have been farther along in the record. Despite that the record as other reviewers have said is awesome. A must have if you like good music.
