Dear Friends in the Press and Media worldwide -  we're happy to present you with the imminent release of Civilizing, the debut EP  by Alabama-based experimental raw black metal duo CALQUES.
Calques is an industrial/noise/punk/raw black metal band formed in 2016 in Montgomery, Alabama. Begotten within the crushing mental oppression of a decaying southern town, Calques decided to embrace what they most despised and use it as a weapon to face their most crushing miseries. Playing lo-fi black metal filtered through lurid and demented noise rock riffs and a vile shroud of harsh noise, Calques’ music is the sound of failure and of outcasts - of the deprived pushed into the red and their torment then channeled through the cheapest recording devices possible with the worst instruments available.
Within this hell-ridden framework of audial disembodiment, Calques have birthed their debut EP Civilizing - taking the lacerating approach to raw black metal of bands like Ildjarn and Bone Awl, and making it collide against the abrasive and nerve-wrecking raw punk of bands like Raw Nerve and Cult Ritual, and the noisy pedal and knob abuse of deviants like Gnaw Their TonguesThe Body, and Sutekh Hexen, and finally, choking out everything in a mangled and sanguine strangulation of completely collapsing and self-harming noise rock deviancy that brings to mind the glorious days of Butthole Surfers and Today Is The Day. (Press Note)

*This is some amazing noise damaged raw black metal, punk, and experimental noise.  Seriously, I can't begin to describe how good Civilizing is!  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!  Civilizing was released via Sentient Ruin Laboratories on October 13th, 2017.
