Caligula's Horse - "Slow Violence" (video)

When the moment comes to light the lost and it’s eyes on you,
leaving us no legacy but residue
It’s when you preach your promises like the filth was always there
Like we were always dead

If we could tread so lightly that the bait in my breath is done
Grind down, the grief gives way
Justify just another one
The mourning ends,
the maker mends,
and you feed it

And with your nothing words, stand by the lie, watch your saviour bleed
He said, “My son, they’ll know you by the numbness in your knees”
If I could run the way your god conceals his gun

He’d know that for all your pride,
we’re all buried by the same slow violence
I’ll take you with me
We’re all buried by the sure decay
You lied

So give us something more than the wretch,
than the pose of the penitent
And with a rapture wracked, spit back the impact in the garden
It’s your Judas kiss
The shots don’t miss, and you know it

Call for a binding,
blade to the boy,
and bite down until it’s all done
Isn’t this what you want?
The man, the pyre, the only son
If I could run the way your god conceals his gun

He’d know that for all your pride,
we’re all buried by the same slow violence
I’ll take you with me
We’re all buried by the sure decay
You lied

So you can save your empty prayers for deaf ears
Keep your eyes front and listen, your sons are all singing Maria

And you can bleed your promises and leech your covenant,
but can’t you hear it?
They’re already singing Maria

For all your pride
For the lie that feeds the fire

For all your pride
We’re all buried by the same slow violence
I’ll take you with me
We’re all buried by the sure decay
You lied

The way your god conceals his gun

Ο αυτοκράτορας της Ρώμης Γάιος Ιούλιος Καίσαρας Αύγουστος Γερμανικός (γνωστότερος ως Καλιγούλας) είχε εκφράσει την πρόθεσή του να κάνει ύπατο τον θείο του (Κλαύδιο). Κάποιος σχολίασε ότι θα ήταν καλύτερο να κάνει ύπατο το άλογό του παρά τον Κλαύδιο (τον οποίο προφανώς θεωρούσε παντελώς ακατάλληλο για τη θέση). Ο Καλιγούγας (ως μέγα τρολ) έκανε τον Ινκιτάτο (το άλογό του) ύπατο της Ρώμης. Η ιστορία αυτή ενέπνευσε μία μπάντα από την Αυστραλία επιλέγοντας ως όνομα το Caligula's Horse.

Progressive Metal / rock μπάντα που δημιουργήθηκε προ δεκαετίας, αναφέρει ως επιρροές μπάντες / καλλιτέχνες όπως οι Devin Townsend, Opeth, Steely Dan, Jeff Buckley, Muse, Pain of Salvation, Steeleye Span, the Beatles, Frank Zappa, Steve Vai, Tori Amos, Lunatic Soul, Katatonia, Tracey Chapman, A Perfect Circle κλπ κι έχει κυκλοφορήσει τέσσερις "ολοκληρωμένους" δίσκους (συν ένα ep). Ο πέμπτος είναι προ των πυλών. Φέρει τον τίτλο "Rise Radiant" κι αναμένεται τον τελευταίο ανοιξιάτικο μήνα...

Δελτίο τύπου: «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.

Caligula’s Horse have taken ambitious strides with every release, maintaining a course of continual artistic development and reinvention. Formed in 2011, the band garnered critical acclaim for their eclectic and exploratory debut, 'Moments from Ephemeral City' (2011), and its dark, conceptual follow-up, 'The Tide, the Thief & River's End' (2013).

But Caligula's Horse truly made their mark worldwide with their vibrant and hard-hitting third album, 'Bloom' (2015), the first on prestigious German record label, Inside Out. It was on the back of this record that the group expanded its touring regime beyond Australia, including shows with the likes of Mastodon, Opeth, the Dillinger Escape Plan, Tesseract, and Anathema.

Caligula’s Horse’s fourth album, 'In Contact' (2017), with its grand concept and expansive dynamics, was the first to break the Australian ARIA Top 50 Chart. Its critical and commercial success saw the band grow its reach tremendously, packing out venues across Australia, the UK, and Europe, and touring the Americas for the first time.

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. The release of 'Rise Radiant' will be accompanied by a world tour, with Caligula’s Horse visiting more countries than ever before, kicking off in the North American 2020 summer.»
