Metridium Fields is the major label debut by San Francisco-based doom metal outfit Giant Squid. It is a re-recorded version of their album Metridium Field, which was released independently by the band two years earlier.
The bands original debut album, Metridium Field was self-released in 2004, and after signing with The End Records in 2005, the band decided to remaster the album for its world-wide release. Upon finding the original master tracks had become unusable, Giant Squid re-recorded the entire album and re-released it as their major label debut and first "official" album. Fields was released on August 22, 2006, and brought the band critical acclaim and a devoted fanbase.
The title of the album and its closing track is named for Metridium, a genus of sea anemone.

Of child, and wife, and slave; but evermore
Most weary seemed the sea, weary the oar,
Weary the wandering fields of barren foam.”
