Calatrilloz review


Calatrilloz is a theatrical operatic gothic rock band from London.

They have a very unusual and interesting name, which comes with a bizarre ‘story’.. it is a name of a circus family, protagonist of a tale created by Brazilian, Mr Z, who after singing classical opera for many years decided to create a new musical project, but instead of starting with the conventional method of song writing, he created a story that would inspire his music..This idea had brilliant results and led to a mix of different genres, including Gothic, Rock, Jazz, Theatrical Opera and Circus vibes...with his strange musical concoction he headed to London where luckily he found the rest of Calatrilloz..
Arthur (Bass), Dan (Guitar), Luca (Drums) and Maya (Violin).

I personally was thrilled to come across this band as I love the whole concept, image and unique twist on their music and that fact that they incorporate theatrical drama. It is a weird and wonderful combination, that works perfectly and gives the band a distinctive stamp, which frankly is what bands crave..So hats off to them!

At times it reminds me of something you would hear in a Tim Burton film and their imagery also conveys this, their whole sound/image is perfect for gothic movie soundtracks! Their new video for, “Z The Psychopath” produced by Thomas Stimson, is captivating and crazy whilst the song is catchy, it sounds like a mixture between System Of A Down and Breed 77 but overall its their own unique sound! And their appearance and menacing make-up adds to the drama of the song, and lead singer, Mr Z himself especially looks absolutely insane..They do say that every genius is insane!..I adore this band, I’m hooked..Their video for the brilliant, “Origins” is quite simply a work of art..Which pretty much sums up the band, visually and musically...they deliver on all fronts! This is a band everyone should be talking about!..This is one story you will want to watch unfold!..I can’t wait to see what the next chapter entails for the band!


The band has played a number of events and festivals, ranging from London to Madrid and they are currently on tour with Blooding Mask (a classical opera electronica goth band from Wiltshire, Midlands) and tonight on the 20th of November are playing at the Pretty Goth Theatre Festival in London which is free so don’t miss it! Its at the Fiddler Elbow, Kentish Town at 17:00 then the next day on the 21st they are playing another festival, Spider Web Festival in Bristol...If you can try your best to see this band live, sounds like they put on one hell of a show like no other band!

Their new EP, “The Rise Of The Leviatan” is out now.

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)


Cellar Darling is comprised of Anna Murphy, Ivo Henzi, and Merlin Sutter who recently formed following the spilt from previous well-known folk metal band, Eluveitie. The trio have been hard at work since, creating their anticipated debut album 'This Is The Sound' which was released June 30th via Nuclear Blast Records and have impressed fans and press alike with their fresh and unique sound which has been dubbed as "the new wave of folk rock“. This is an exciting and busy time for the band, so I caught up with them to find out about their origins, their new album, touring and what is in store for the band amongst other things..

Can you tell us about the formation of Cellar Darling following leaving your previous band Eluveitie and how the band came to be?
Merlin: What I remember most clearly is how quick it went. As you might know, the whole thing with Eluveitie came very unexpected for us - we were informed of a decision by the remain…

REVIEW: Bobaflex - Eloquent Demons

Hard Rockers Bobaflex from West Virginian are back to wreak havoc with their eighth album ‘Eloquent Demons’ which is the follow to 2015’s ‘Anything That Moves’, this sees not only their first release through Thermal Entertainment but their first actual label release in a while after the band decided to go independent. They are a very hardworking and tireless band, having extensively toured, and even setting records for this, they certainly don’t do anything by half measures.
The opening intro and title track sounds very appropriately evil, with a creepy intro speech to set the scene whilst we wait for the demons to be fully unleashed…
First proper track ‘I Am Nightmare’ immediately sees heavy dark guitars and melodic group singing, which give it a classic feel with a gritty edge and is possesses a hell of a powerful chorus, not to mention a killer solo – this will be hard to forget.
Keeping the momentum going is ‘Long Time Coming’ which is equally as hard-hitting, with groove ridden and…
