Koen B. : After the Tormenting Attractions CD which came out in 2015, things have been quiet within the Calcined camp. The Swiss band however returns back to the front with their newest output Discipline, which was released through the French label Great Dane Records. The people at Great Dane keep surprising me with strong and powerful releases. It however seems the Great Dane releases never get the attention they deserve from press and public.
I hope this changes with Discipline by Calcined, because this is another example of a release people should check out. Calcined plays bustle death metal that needs a few listens to get acquired to, but once it grabs you, this band definitely is for you. In this time and age however, people do not take time to really let the music sink in. This is a pity, because interesting bands such as Calcined probably will be ignored. Do not ignore them, support them!
