CALM.Murder resides between the quiet and spacious Port Jervis, NY and Dingmans Ferry, PA, yet their sound couldn’t be anything but the polar opposite. Uncalcutative time signatures and a ravaging, venomous wail, their music speaks of a somewhat singular human condition.
Yet the breadth of this expression couldn’t sound much wider. Possibly the personality trait we all fear, is what we face while listening to their music blasting through our speakers.
When it comes to matters of life and heart, there is not always a logical responce. We are taught to respect our leaders. We are taught that it will be commonplace for them to lie to us at every turn. We are taught love and family are to be cheerished more than anything else. We are taught how ugly comittment seems compared to collecting lovers. Art has always been a form of communication used by people who had not a voice to speak out during desperate times.
From writing on walls, political cartoons or even a song can be used to reflect the extreme circumstances in which we are trying to survive. CALM.murder is not Metalcore or Hardcore, neither Rock and Roll nor alternative.
CALM.Murder is a form of art that depicts emotion at its rawest and darkest level. Poetic and melodic balanced by uncontrolled screaming and timing. Calm.Murder is merely a reflection of what is around us.
