Band of the week 44/2023
Origin: Marburg, Germany
The band about itself:
Metalcore band from Germany. Latest album ‘Turbulence” available on all streaming services.
The four guys from Marburg represents a typical metalcore sound that is nevertheless refreshing and unique: brutal riffing and generally first-class guitar work meet raw shouting, merciless breakdowns and harmonious clean vocals. Jörn, Harvey, Torsten and Daniel have brought us their bangers on the albums Penumbra and Turbulence, with Free Fall and Heart of Stone two more singles followed. Furthermore, they are celebrating their 10th anniversary this year, which of course has to be celebrated properly. Musically, the songs offer not only maximum violence but also the very best catchy tune potential, the alternation of shouting and singing usually keeps stuck in your head right away. The first time I met them was during the opener contest of the Fallen Fortress Open Air and they impressed me right from the start, which is why they have been a faithful companion in my daily musical life ever since and I can’t imagine life without them.
Live, Call it Tragedy are also a real force and always invite you to escalate. In the recent past, they could prove their stage qualities at the Traffic Jam Open Air, the Pell Mell Festival or the Fallen Fortress Open Air, and each time they provided for an incredible party. Flying hair, pits in all variations, when the backdrop says Call it Tragedy, demolition is pre-programmed. Recently, however, the band announced that they had parted ways with singer Jörn, and the search for a successor will begin in November with a casting. So we can be curious about what the future holds for Call it Tragedy.
Upcoming live dates:
17.11.23 – Germany, Gießen, Jokus – 10 Years of Tragedy + Sun Eater + Dying Breed
