Caligula’s Horse share new single “The Stormchaser,” 3rd single from forthcoming album ‘Charcoal Grace’

Caligula’s Horse share new single “The Stormchaser”

Two weeks before the release of their most anticipated 6th studio album Charcoal Grace, Australian progressive metal band Caligula’s Horse release The Stormchaser,” the 3rd track from their forthcoming album.

“The Stormchaser” comes with a thrilling music video that tells a moving story that underlines the emotional facetted of the song. Watch the video here:

Lead guitarist Sam Vallen says about the new track:
“The Stormchaser is about the divide we all saw through the pandemic. How, rather than banding together to overcome the challenge of those years, many chose to serve themselves at the expense of their community and their society. Watching this, as we all did, was a humbling and infuriating experience, and it has lingered in all of us. Musically, The Stormchaser is quite different from those we’ve revealed so far from Charcoal Grace, emphasising space, dynamics, and timbre with a particular focus on the emotional range of Jim Grey’s vocal.”

Pre-Order Charcoal Grace here:

The title Charcoal Grace is described by the band as “the grim allure and strange beauty in stillness, silence, and loss”. This can be heard through the album’s 10-minute opening track “The World Breathes With Me,” a mission statement for the album’s main themes. Musically, it’s a work of contrasts, moving from the lightest ebb to the heaviest flow. Meanwhile, the second track and first single from the album, “Golem,” examines struggling with the weight of expectation through the pandemic. It’s a heavy song with an emphasis on riffs and driving rhythms.

At the center of the album is the 4-part title track suite, a 24-minute opus that pushes deeper into the album’s foundational themes: connection, alienation, and the ways humanity acts under duress. Musically, it covers every facet of the band’s vocabulary, from heavy and dense orchestral-accompanied intensity embodying the song’s darkest lyrical ideas, through to soft acoustic-driven moments and introspection.
