    Combining metal, progressive and experimental music, trying to fit the Finnish Callisto into one single category hardly does the band justice. Founded in 2001, the quintet play diverse, timeless, downbeat music that is rich in nuances, draws from numerous sources and doesn't really have any obvious fellow creatures or point of comparisons. Callisto's debut "True Nature Unfolds" (2004) received an enthusiastic response and earned the band a worldwide license deal with the British Earache Records. The band's sophomore album "Noir" was released in 2006 and it exceeded all the high expectations set by the debut. Still drawing from modern sludge, "Noir" also introduced subtle jazz leanings, heavy use of mellotron and experimentation with unconventional metal rock instruments such as the saxophone and the flute. Callisto's cryptic lyrics contain strong Christian themes and the band's combination of heaviness and delicacy paints a hazy, almost hypnotic picture that has won over critics and countless fans throughout the world. Having received several rave reviews and toured actively in Finland and Europe, Callisto are currently preparing for the release of their third album. They've got us on our toes and we can't help but champ at the bit - Callisto's forthcoming album is one of the most eagerly awaited releases of the year 2009.

    Callisto signs to Svart Records - new album in November 2014

    Callisto and Svart Records have agreed on a deal that will put the band’s fourth, yet unnamed album out in November 2014. A long, nearly 12 year journey with Fullsteam Records has thus come to its end.

    It is also time to take new directions bookingwise. From now on Callisto will be booked by NEM Agency, both domestic and international. The band has been working on their upcoming album sporadically for a good while now, taking a hiatus from touring.

    Callisto's first scheduled show this year is Germany’s Freakstock Festival in August. The band is now taking booking requests for a Finnish tour in November/December 2014 and for an European tour from January 2015 onwards.

    What an outstanding music by this artist, he has really good grip on experimental music and some other tones. If you are seeking some help about your study then you should be buying paper online from the internet.
