Hot New Band: Caligula's Horse
Caligula’s Horse aim to lift spirits with their organic prog explorations.
Life is what happens when you are busy making other plans and Aussie prog metal outfit Caligula’s Horse were sired by accident.
Releasing their debut in 2011 as a two-man side-project, Jim Grey of Arcane and Sam Vallen from now-defunct proggers Quandary landed themselves in a quandary of their own.
“We never intended to form a band at all,” says Jim, “It was meant to be a one-off album. The response was so good we ended up putting a band together.”
Expanded to a five-piece with the inclusion of Sam’s ex-Quandary bandmates, the Brisbane band are set to release their third album, Bloom, the follow-up to 2013’s conceptual work The Tide, The Thief & River’s End and a departure from the darkness of its predecessor.
