I need to get back to these guys. I bought In Contact and Bloom, and I liked them, but didn't spend the time necessary on them. Will go back. Just so hard with all the new music that has, and is coming, out.

The first 4 minutes of graves is fantastic, the rest is just solid

aside from the sax ofc which is great
It's probably Six Roaming Owls or some other obscure band I've never heard of.

The last two minutes of Graves are the best part of the album though

First, greetings to EthanWild24! Welcome to the forum, my friend, and the Caligula's Horse thread.

Second, Caligula's Horse were announced for ProgPower next year, and thanks to my roulette earlier this year I heard two of their albums and enjoyed them quite a bit. Very excited to see them in 2019!!

Can't wait to see these guys in just over a week. Graves has become one of my favourite epics and I really hope they play it live. It seems like they generally have been, so that's good

I've seen them 2 weeks ago in Milan. Great concert because they have spectacular songs, but I feel bad for all the three bands because there were 60 or 70 people at best. I don't know if in the rest of Europe the situation will be different. After the gig I believe that In Contact is their best album, I have less doubts about it. I don't even know how they can top it if they do not change more their style with respect their two or three latest albums.

I've seen this thread bounce around a bit.   As a result, I'm listening to Graves for the first time right now. 

Not bad.  Worth another spin to process fully. 

This is part of that newer sound many post-millennium prog rock bands have.   New Anathema, The Dear Hunter, and a few others.   They incorporate that "post rock" sound into their material.   

Just an observation, not a criticism.

I don't know that I hear any hints of post rock in their style.  To me, it's more or less straight up prog metal with some killer lead guitar work.

I could not get into the first 2 albums but Bloom is stunning, beautiful and flows really well.  I also love In Contact

Do yourself a favour and give the second album another chance.

Yeah the last three albums are all excellent, this band is on such a great run. I do think each one is slightly better than the last, but they're all great.

A lot of bands are doing it now....but anytime there is even a small section where there's a slow beat and a guitar playing high notes super fast, that's a textbook "post rock/shoegaze" signature move.   And I've heard a lot of current progressive rock bands borrow that technique.   The last few Anathema albums are a great example.    I'm not saying it as a bad thing.   I noticed it after I started listening to bands like Explosions in the Sky et al.

Caligula's Horse were pretty good last night. The venue was criminally small for a band this good but they didn't seem to care. They played a pretty 'In Contact/Bloom' heavy set but I'm fine with that as they are my favourite albums. The vocalist is really good live but he comes across a bit pretentious. The rest of the band seemed to really be enjoying themselves (especially the two guitarists). Highlights were definitely Graves and Bloom/Marigold. They just fucking killed. Graves is becoming one of my all time favourite epics, it's just awesome and the finale of that song live.....wow.

Shout out to Circles as well. They didn't sound quite as good but all the songs they played off their new album were great. I need to give it a few more listens as some of the choruses are really catchy and it'll likely end up in my top 20 albums of the year.

That's awesome. Interesting you say that about the venue size - I only discovered they were touring here when you mentioned it earlier in the thread, by which point the London show was sold out.
