Are crafted completely around melody and reflect some of the writing tactics of our beloved Bay Area thrashers to lethal dose of Headbanging Tribulation throughout nine varied thrash metal Anthems !!! mengawali obsesi sebagai covering band kuat Metallica, Puerto Rico Thrash Metal, Calamity berevolusi menjadi gerakan yang masih kental banget mengusung elemen Thrash Metal di era awal kejayaannya dengan sound yang berbeda mereka sajikan hari ini. formasi solid yang sudah berkumpul dan eksis sejak tahun 2010, band ini telah berganti nama hingga 3x sebelum akhirnya memilih CALAMITY menjadi Opsi terakhir untuk segala eksistensinya. EP " Let Em' Burn! " jadi taring awal perkenalan yang menjanjikan tiket mulus mereka menjajah banyak panggung dan Scene. sukses memperkenalkan materi EP, Calamity hanya butuh selang 1 tahun untuk segera melepaskan debut full pertama " Imminent Disaster " tahun 2015. konsep kuat ala Bay Area thrashers rupanya adalah obsesi Berny Santos Cs melancarkan agresi militan Independen. mengumandangkan kembali konsep konsep klasik 80-an khas Exodus, Metallica, Sadus, Vio-Lence, Testament hingga Defiance. saat Scene Thrash Metal sedang berkembang sepanjang tahun 80-an, lahir lah banyak band yang masing-masing memiliki gaya dan pengaruh yang berbeda. pengaruh terkuat memang tetap Gw menyebutkan nama-nama seperti Tygers from Pan Tang, Diamond Head, Angel Witch, Venom hingga Budgie sebagai pengaruh terkuat hasil blend genre Punk seperti Misfits, Charg GBD dan Discharge yang diketahui memang mengilhami lahirnya masterpiece fenomenal Metallica seperti " Kill em all " atau " Bonded by Blood " nya Exodus. tidak berhenti berkarya sampai disitu, Calamity kembali memperkenalkan single " End of the Road " tahun 2016. dan setelah semedi 2 tahun, Calamity memperkenalkan kembali single " The Truth " tahun 2018 yang jadi cikal bakal lahirnya materi album ke-2 " Kairos ". tidak banyak mengalami pergeseran yang signifikan, Berny Santos Cs tetap konsis mengusung warna yang sudah mereka sepakati. Untuk seberapa banyak yang kita dapatkan, Calamity tahu sekali bagaimana cara mengemasnya dengan pasti, dan bagi seseorang yang membenci warna metalcore, Gw tidak benar-benar terganggu oleh momen-momen seperti itu. Alasannya adalah karena lagu-lagu Calamity memang mengambil pendekatan yang solid dengan menyelesaikannya riff keren dan tidak menenggelamkannya dalam chugs yang terlalu monoton. album kedua ini adalah di mana sebagian besar materi lebih menonjol bisa kalian dengarkan, tetapi secara keseluruhan Gw menemukan ini menjadi sesuatu yang sangat menyenangkan pada setiap waktu mendengarkan. Calamity just go for an all-out aggressive approach, and the more Agression, the better the album. and This is just still the start however...

The Thrash classic with modern style title track opens the record " Killer Vibes " !  Like a slightly more angry, more violent " Kill Em All ".  I'd imagine this was how most of the supposed "Purists" Lars Ulrich always whines about (Anybody else starting to think he's making that up and the actual reaction to " Fade To Black " was more indifference) wanted " Ride The Lightning " to be. violent riffs are fucking insane! The riffs are fast and most of all, it's THRASH! Style simply seperti awal kita mendengarkan kembali taring Thrash metal mulai tajam menggigit, Riff riff kejam dan cepat sudah jadi sebuah trademark yang familiar banget pada era-nya, dan karakter dan pattern vokal Berny Santos masih menjadi perpaduan kuat antara Alm. Paul Baloff, James Hetfield, atau Chuck Billy, all unhinged performance is unforgettable. is constantly barking the lyrics out with sheer force, he is an absolute fucking legend! yaa, mendengarkan materi Calamity Gw seperti dipaksa mendengarkan lagi materi klasik Exodus era " Bonded by Blood ", dan " Pleasures of the Flesh " yang di kloning dengan karakter " Ride the Lighting " nya Metallica, dengan typical kuat bernyanyi khas Alm. Paul Baloff, yeahhh !!! bisa jadi materi ini seperti " Bonded by Blood " terlahir kembali dengan cita rasa makin menyegarkan ! Young, riff-hungry band were pushing the genre’s boundaries, playing with more speed and dexterity than their metal contemporaries. They set the standard for American Thrash. deskripsi yang rasanya pas jika disini Gw memang banyak membandingkan karena benang merah-nya tidak jauh dari nama veteran tersebut. opening part drum di " Guerreros " seperti mengingatkan " Criminally Insane " nya Slayer kemudian part seperti lagunya siapa yaa, Sorry Gw lupa banget tapi kalian pasti familiar hehehehe ... yang pasti Calamity pantang kendor untuk membakar adrenalin dan Moshpit yang selalu pecah. track berbahasa spanyol rupanya banyak melakukan penekanan karakter lagu yang makin dinamis dan cepat. riff riff sakti ala Gary Holt memang Gw percaya adalah Root penjiwaan karakteristik berkarya Calamity. jika penampilan Instrumen Bass tidak cukup keras. Bukan berarti permainannya di bawah standar, karena ketika kalian benar-benar bisa mendengarnya, itu terdengar sangat menyakitkan sebenarnya. Itu terlalu sunyi. Itu tidak akan terlalu mengganggu Gw jika itu benar-benar tidak terdengar. Ada saat-saat kalian bisa mendengarnya lebih keras dan lebih jelas, tetapi ini hanya menggoda. Ini menawarkan rasa apa yang harus lebih sentuhan sound hari ini. masih panas membakar dengan tempo cepat, " Still We Live " masih terlalu asyik masuk terlalu dalam memori kita dengan keeping Teutonic Thrash Metal. mungkin Gw merasakan pattern harmoni vokal di track ini lebih kerasa melodius dan bergaya khas kebanyakan band Power metal. expressed all that is evil. It seemed as if band was constantly in danger of losing his self-control. But in reality, he followed a clear line, at least on the here presented work. features the vocals of a man who remains concentrated and his emphasis of the single lines matches perfectly with the atmosphere of each and every sonic frontal assault. Commuting between a cynical approach and sheer Aggression. malah rasanya Gw seperti mendengarkan materi Children of Bodom untuk track ini setelah berulang kali memutarnya. seperti tidak ingin terlalu jauh kehilangan jati diri, Calamity selanjutnya mulai terlalu asyik dengan sentuhan yang sangat melodius and so pasti Headbangin on di " The Truth ", perpaduan tajam seperti Defiance, Vio-Lence, Testament hingga Death Angel awal cukup terasakan aroma-nya. sekali lagi Berbicara tentang riff: mereka memang selalu terdengar tajam, cepat dan keras. Pada saat yang sama, dan ini adalah faktor penting, mereka inovatif, inovatif dan tak tertahankan. seperti kembali pada tahun 1985, hal yang sama diterapkan pada seluruh genre dan Gw kira ini adalah alasan yang menentukan mengapa semua album yang megah dari pertengahan tahun 80 an tidak akan pernah kehilangan status mereka. Tidak akan pernah! Mereka mendokumentasikan semangat perintis yang ada di mana-mana saat ini. menginspirasi dari banyak band-band berbakat Bay Area awal seperti Exodus, Metallica dan Testament, untuk menyebutkan hanya beberapa yang paling penting - dengan cara yang sangat signifikan. sejenak cooling down lagi dengan komposisi yang melodius, jangan pernah skip track asyik " Kairos ". menekankan dengan konsep riff yang lebih melodius, Gw rasa ini track Headbangin terbaik-nya. That's just fine by me, 'cos when it comes to thrash metal, the more aggressive, the better. Much of their riffs are somewhat simple, consisting of chugging e-note rhythms headbangin and a few basic power chords. Those were all the band needed to put more of an intimidating and powerful sound. It is proof that you don't really need to be that intricate in order to please a crowd, sometimes a simple riff could be all that would be necessary to get a circle pit going. " The Change ", Juga Signature thrash metal, adalah kenyataan bahwa beberapa musik tampaknya menampilkan riff-riff keren, meskipun tidak banyak. Setiap lagu tampaknya difokuskan pada satu atau dua riff dan tidak banyak berubah dari sana. Lagu-lagunya termasuk simply, cathcy dan easy listening melalui struktur yang sederhana dan menggunakan riff sederhana tetapi sangat menarik dan tidak seperti yang lain karena sentuhan melodiusnya. Akselerasi Setlist track memang cukup dipertaruhkan, jika selanjutnya perlahan menurun dan tiba tiba naik, seperti " Overruled ", pemandangan yang cukup berbeda dengan 2 lagu pertama, tapi jika kalian adalah penikmat musik tanpa melihat blueprint, kalian masih tetap berada di menit 38 yang menyenangkan. seperti tidak banyak menguras enerji otak, Calamity masih terlalu enjoy menyeduhkan komposisi dan aransemen catchy meski ada beberapa part yang menurut Gw terlalu membosankan. " El Vacio " menjadi track berbahasa Spanyol setelah " Guerreros ", sepertinya Gw mendengarkan " One " nya Metallica ala Calamity, slowly transforms from a rock ballad to a full-blown metal song in good coherence. The other songs just meander without meaning between some semi-cool thrash metal riffs and vocal screaming over the instruments. jangan lupa solo gitar track ini keren dan mendayu dayu di menit menit akhir membangun imej track tidak terlalu hanyut dalam warna ballad. dan Setlist disudahi dengan kolaborasi lagu " The Handlebar ", sebuah penutup manis yang berhasil membungkus kemasan menarik " Kairos " menjadi Thrash Metal Klasik dengan taste hari ini. The only thing keeping this from a 100% rating is the production value. It kills me that it doesn't get better than this, because I think this would be my favorite album ever if the quality wasn't so lacking. It's not so bad that you can't enjoy it.

And Overall, Oh yes, ladies and gentlemen, metal doesn't get much better than this. " Kairos " is one of those albums that from first listen will have you headbanging while screaming along and cutting your palm to drink your blood. seperti beberapa ungkapan sebelumnya Gw diatas, materi ini lagi lagi menjadi pelepas dahaga kerinduan kita dengan Karakter cadas Bay area Thrash yang cukup menarik disajikan dengan sentuhan hari ini. sebuah Konspirasi lahirnya Calamity ditengah gempuran Modern era, bagaimana Idealisme itu masih ada. meski tidak ada yang terlalu Spesial, Calamity masih menunjukkan " Kairos " sebagai masterpiece terbaik band setelah ditempa kuat pada materi sebelumnya. a classic of early Bay area -thrash. If you wanna get a good taste of how the REAL talented of thrash metal sounded like, put this on your shopping cart.

ENGLISH VERSION

Are crafted completely around melody and reflect some of the writing tactics of our beloved Bay Area thrashers to lethal dose of Headbanging Tribulation throughout nine varied thrash metal Anthems !!! started his obsession as covering the strong band of Metallica, Puerto Rico Thrash Metal, Calamity evolved into a very thick movement carrying the Thrash Metal element in the era of its heyday with a different sound they presented today. solid formation that has gathered and existed since 2010, the band has changed its name to 3 times before finally choosing CALAMITY to be the last option for all its existence. EP "Let Em 'Burn!" Became the initial introduction fangs that promised their smooth tickets to aggression many stages and scenes. successfully introducing EP material, Calamity only needed 1 year to immediately release the first full debut of "Imminent Disaster" in 2015. The strong concept of the Bay Area thrashers was apparently an obsession with Berny Santos Cs launching independent militant aggression. reiterating the concept of classic 80s concepts typical of Exodus, Metallica, Sadus, Vio-Lence, Testament to Defiance. when the Thrash Metal Scene was developing throughout the 80s, many bands were born, each of which had a different style and influence. the strongest influence I still mention names such as Tygers from Pan Tang, Diamond Head, Angel Witch, Venom to Budgie as the strongest influence from the Punk genre blend such as Misfits, Charg GBD and Discharge which are known to inspire Metallica's phenomenal masterpiece like "Kill em All " or Exodus " Bonded by Blood ". Calamity re-introduced the single "End of the Road" in 2016. and after two years, Calamity reintroduced the single "The Truth" in 2018 which became the forerunner to the birth of the 2nd album material "Kairos". not much experience a significant shift, Berny Santos Cs remains a consort carrying the colors they have agreed on. For how much we get, Calamity knows how to package it for sure, and for someone who hates metalcore, I'm not really bothered by such moments. The reason is because Calamity songs do take a solid approach by completing cool riffs and not drowning them in too monotonous chugs. this second album is where most of the material is more prominent you can listen to, but overall I find this to be something very pleasant at every time I listen. Calamity just go for an all-out aggressive approach, and the more Agression, the better the album. and This is just still the start however...

The Thrash classic with modern style title track opens the record " Killer Vibes " !  Like a slightly more angry, more violent " Kill Em All ".  I'd imagine this was how most of the supposed "Purists" Lars Ulrich always whines about (Anybody else starting to think he's making that up and the actual reaction to " Fade To Black " was more indifference) wanted " Ride The Lightning " to be. violent riffs are fucking insane! The riffs are fast and most of all, it's THRASH! The simple style as we listen to the back of the fangs Thrash metal began to sharply bite, Riff cruel and fast riffs have become a trademark that is very familiar with the era, and the character and vocal pattern of Berny Santos is still a strong blend of the Almighty. Paul Baloff, James Hetfield, or Chuck Billy, all unhinged performance is unforgettable. is constantly barking the lyrics out with sheer force, he is an absolute fucking legend! yeah, listening to Calamity material is like being forced to listen to the Exodus classic "Bonded by Blood", and "Pleasures of the Flesh" which was cloned with Metallica's "Ride the Lighting" character, with typical strong singing typical of Paul Baloff, yeahhh !!! maybe this material like "Bonded by Blood" is reborn with an even more refreshing taste! Young, riff-hungry band were pushing the genre’s boundaries, playing with more speed and dexterity than their metal contemporaries. They set the standard for American Thrash. the description feels right if here I really compare a lot because the red thread is not far from the name of the veteran. the opening part of the drum in "Guerreros" was like reminding Slayer's "Criminally Insane" then whose part was like the song huh, Sorry I forgot so much but you must be familiar hehehehe ... Calamity definitely loosened to burn adrenaline and Moshpit which always broke. Spanish-language tracks seem to make a lot of emphasis on song characters that are increasingly dynamic and fast. Gary Holt's powerful riff riff I believe is the root of the creative character of Calamity. if Instrument Bass's appearance isn't hard enough. Not that the playing is subpar, because when you really can hear it, it sounds really painful. That is too quiet. That wouldn't bother me too much if it really didn't sound. There are times when you can hear it louder and clearer, but this is just tempting. This offers a sense of what should be a touch of sound today. still hot burning with a fast tempo, "Still We Live" is still too absorbed in too much of our memory with Teutonic Thrash Metal keeping. Maybe I feel the vocal harmony pattern on this track is more melodic and is in the style of most Power metal bands. expressed all that is evil. It seemed as if band was constantly in danger of losing his self-control. But in reality, he followed a clear line, at least on the here presented work. features the vocals of a man who remains concentrated and his emphasis of the single lines matches perfectly with the atmosphere of each and every sonic frontal assault. Commuting between a cynical approach and sheer Aggression. instead it feels like listening to Children of Bodom material for this track after playing it repeatedly. like not wanting to lose too much of its identity, Calamity then began to be too engrossed in a very melodic touch and so Headbangin on "The Truth", a sharp blend like Defiance, Vio-Lence, Testament to the early Death Angel, was just a scent. once again Talking about riffs: they always sound sharp, fast and hard. At the same time, and this is an important factor, they are innovative, innovative and irresistible. like back in 1985, the same thing was applied to all genres and I suppose this was the decisive reason why all the magnificent albums from the mid 80's would never lose their status. Will never! They document the pioneering spirit that is everywhere nowadays. inspired many early Bay Area talented bands such as Exodus, Metallica and Testament, to name only a few of the most important - in a very significant way. for a moment cooling down again with a melodic composition, never skip the fun track "Kairos". emphasizing the more melodic riff concept, I think this is the best Headbangin track. That's just fine by me, 'cos when it comes to thrash metal, the more aggressive, the better. Much of their riffs are somewhat simple, consisting of chugging e-note rhythms headbangin and a few basic power chords. Those were all the band needed to put more of an intimidating and powerful sound. It is proof that you don't really need to be that intricate in order to please a crowd, sometimes a simple riff could be all that would be necessary to get a circle pit going. " The Change ", Also Signature thrash metal, is the fact that some music seems to feature cool riffs, though not many. Each song seems to be focused on one or two riffs and doesn't change much from there. The songs include simply, cathcy and easy listening through a simple structure and using simple but very interesting riffs and not like the others because of their melodic touch. Acceleration of the Track Setlist is indeed quite at stake, if the next slowly decreases and suddenly rises, like "Overruled", the scenery is quite different from the first 2 songs, but if you are music lovers without seeing the blueprint, you are still in pleasant 38 minutes. such as not draining much brain energy, Calamity is still too much pleasure in making catchy compositions and arrangements even though there are some parts that I think are too boring. "El Vacio" became a Spanish track after "Guerreros", it seems like I listened to Metallica's "One" like Calamity, slowly transforms from a rock ballad to a full-blown metal song in good coherence. The other songs just meander without meaning between some semi-cool thrash metal riffs and vocal screaming over the instruments. Don't forget that the track guitar solo is cool and flirting with the guitar in the last minute minutes building the image of the track is not too drifting in the color of the ballad. and the Setlist was concluded with the collaboration of the song "The Handlebar", a sweet cover that managed to wrap the attractive packaging "Kairos" into today's Thrash Metal Classic with taste. The only thing keeping this from a 100% rating is the production value. It kills me that it doesn't get better than this, because I think this would be my favorite album ever if the quality wasn't so lacking. It's not so bad that you can't enjoy it.

And Overall, Oh yes, ladies and gentlemen, metal doesn't get much better than this. " Kairos " is one of those albums that from first listen will have you headbanging while screaming along and cutting your palm to drink your blood. like some of the previous expressions, I above, this material is again a release of our longing thirst with the interesting Bay Area Thrash Character that is presented with a touch today. a conspiracy to the birth of Calamity amidst the onslaught of the Modern era, how that Idealism still exists. Even though there is nothing too special, Calamity still shows "Kairos" as the band's best masterpiece after being forged strongly on the previous material. a classic of early Bay area -thrash. If you wanna get a good taste of how the REAL talented of thrash metal sounded like, put this on your shopping cart.
