Sounds | Caligula's Horse, The Tempest


Progressive metal uit Brisbane, down under. The Tempest is een hedendaagse pm song die goed in elkaar zit en lekker compact is. OK, verre van origineel en de zang kon wat sterker, maar zeker enkele luisterbeurten waard. Rise Radiant verschijnt op 22 mei via InsideOut Music.

ter info Caligula’s Horse, hailing from Brisbane, Australia, are a leading light in contemporary progressive metal. Their colourful and emotional music, spanning influences as diverse as King Crimson, Steely Dan, Opeth, and Jeff Buckley, has forged a deep and lasting connection with fans across the globe.

In 2020, Caligula’s Horse look forward to releasing their most focussed and potent artistic statement yet: 'Rise Radiant', an uncompromising exploration of the human experience dressed in vivid musical colour and virtuosic performances. It is the culmination of the band’s artistic development, concentrating the expressive stylings which have endeared Caligula’s Horse to legions of fans worldwide. But it is also far more. 'Rise Radiant' is the Caligula’s Horse sound pushed to its extremes: at once its most ferocious and its most touching, its most expansive and its most condensed, its most poetic and its most vicious. 'Rise Radiant' is an anthem for the regeneration of self-belief, an exploration of the themes of legacy, and a rallying cry for survival.

Lead guitarist Sam Vallen comments: “Rise Radiant is the album we’ve been working towards for almost a decade. It represents everything we love about Caligula’s Horse – the colour, the ferocity, the introspection, the extremes – all tied up together in a way we could never have managed until now. As a band, we’ve never felt tighter, more inspired, or more driven than in the creation of this record. We’re tremendously proud of ‘Rise Radiant’, and we can’t wait for you to hear it!Rise Radiant is an uncompromising exploration of the human experience dressed in vivid musical colour and virtuosic performances. It is an anthem for the regeneration of self-belief, an exploration of the themes of legacy, and a rallying cry for survival.
