In honor of "Terrapin" turning 3 years old, we are sharing this early demo of "The Pace of Glaciers," version 8, created on May 24, 2013.
From guitarist, Austin Peters --
The initial version of this song was written during my college years, inspired by The Ocean Collective and Between the Buried & Me while living in Wrigleyville, Chicago. My goal was to write an epic that contained every mood and influence I could muster, as sort of culmination of everything I loved about experimental metal music. I rediscovered this version in 2017, and loved the drastic differences in how the song was structured and even how many of the parts I had just scrapped and changed to try and make the current version more digestible. I hope you enjoy this version, as well as the current, which you can hear at youtu.be/PuY4QQig3vw
