From a broken past, a cursed present and a burning future, CalatrilloZ endlessly journey across the pages of an ever-shifting history. Wanderers gathered from the darkened fringes of time, they disguise their anachronistic appearances in the identity of a circus troupe, performing wherever they briefly rest in their ceaseless search. While the illusion effectively shrouds their true nature, it is also an apt parallel to their existence: the lives of circus people are an eternal odyssey; they have no home but the road, no allies but each other, and no masters but themselves. Perpetual outsiders wherever they travel, their presence is a fleeting experience but a lasting memory.
Led by a madman haunted by the sins of his past, they are a ramshackle assortment of lost souls bound by their search for redemption, isolation and guilt forever driving them forwards. Scouring the four corners of the Earth for five marionettes, in each of which is imprisoned a powerful demon lord, their hunt takes them to realms where few can travel and return sane.
A storm of chaos is gathering upon the temporal horizon. Puppets are made to be commanded, and should the marionettes find themselves without a master, the demonic forces trapped within them will once again be awakened.
You’re into creepy, awesome things, aren’t you? Maybe you loved the last season of American Horror Story and you need more twisted circus tales in your life. Well, with your interest piqued, I give you CalatrilloZ.
If you like artists System of a Down, Alice in Chains, Avenged Sevenfold, or Creature Feature, get ready to listen to nothing but CalatrilloZ for the foreseeable future. This wonderfully weird band is getting ready to release their new operatic rock album Psalms of Zahyin on June 22nd. Here’s a sneak peak:
Doesn’t it make you want to drop everything and rewatch Repo! The Genetic Opera?
The five piece horror rock band formed in London in 2009, and since then they’ve been spreading the good word of demon hunting circus folk. If you like your music injected with a rusted syringe of demented storytelling, I’ve gotta say this band is for you.
