Behold the Arctopus has always been a marker of the development of my musical taste. They were the first remotely avant-garde music I've heard (metal or not) and I hated it (I was dumb and 12). I then eventually went to "I can appreciate that it's interesting" and now, I genuinely enjoy this album and what it's going for.
The unique percussion helped me appreciate not just this album but percussion in music generally. As a result, this album feels more like a cohesive whole.
