"Please allow me to introduce these horror punk heartthrobs from the dusty graveyards of Arizona. This is a band of three brothers (actual brothers, actual last name CALABRESE) with a wicked MISFITS-meets-RAMONES-meets-DAMNED sound that is tight, hard and fiercely melodic. Songs like "Resurrection," "Eyes Down," "Shrunken Head Kids" and "Crizila" are liberally spiced with tasty hooks you can sink your fangs into along with all the requisite, whoa-whoa-oooh, chorus vocals that your black leather heart could ever desire. More often than not I've heard this "horror" genre done really poorly, but this can serve as the benchmark of how to get it right. This is as good as it gets, you can file this next to WALK AMONG US". - JEFF DAHL
Formed in 2003 the brothers CALABRESE have quickly made their mark on the world? bite marks to be exact. "We are a very lucky band, our fans our amazing and I think selling our souls is really paying off." -Jimmy Calabrese. Fueled by the cult success of "13 HALLOWEENS" and "THE TRAVELING VAMPIRE SHOW" CALABRESE plans to unleash Hell in 2010.
Not only has CALABRESE finished recording their third CD "THEY CALL US DEATH," for a 2010 release (with artwork from Eric "The Goon" Powell), they have also teamed up with MODERN MYTHOLOGY PRESS for a CALABRESE COMIC BOOK. In addition, CALABRESE will be making their film debut staring in THE GRAVES during the AFTER DARK HORROR FEST 4.
Even though CALABRESE has been compared to the MISFITS, RAMONES and early AFI, they have a sound all their own. "Brothers Bobby, Jimmy and Davey have not only been gifted with a last name that doubles as a great band name...which, much like 13 HALLOWEENS, is destined for cult status." - GOTHIC BEAUTY MAGAZINE.
CALABRESE attracts those who feel confused by the current state of popular music. With distribution in the U.S., Germany, U.K., Japan and to the world through the Internet, CALABRESE are quickly converting an international audience. With consistent touring and song writing, CALABRESE are forcing their way into the nightmares of helpless fans everywhere. "I think CALABRESE is one of the top Horror Rock bands I have heard." - BLASKO (Bassist for ROB ZOMBIE and OZZY OSBOURNE).
