Two weeks before the release of their most anticipated 6th studio album Charcoal Grace, Australian progressive metal band Caligula’s Horse release 3rd track The Stormchaser of upcoming album Charcoal Grace.  

Pre-Order Charcoal Grace here:

The Stormchaser comes with a thrilling music video that tells a moving story that underlines the emotional facetted of the song. Lead guitarist Sam Vallen says about the new track: 

"The Stormchaser is about the divide we all saw through the pandemic. How, rather than banding together to overcome the challenge of those years, many chose to serve themselves at the expense of their community and their society. Watching this, as we all did, was a humbling and infuriating experience, and it has lingered in all of us. Musically, The Stormchaser is quite different from those we've revealed so far from Charcoal Grace, emphasising space, dynamics, and timbre with a particular focus on the emotional range of Jim Grey's vocal.”

In November 2023, Caligula’s Horse released the first single Golem, which served as the first glimpse of the thematical depth of Charcoal Grace and came with a well-received music video. In December, the band followed up with their second single The World Breathes With Me, which is the 10-minute opening track ofCharcoal Grace. The band shared about The World Breathes With Me:

Charcoal Grace is the 6th studio album of the band, and it combines raw rock power with immense emotional depth. Charcoal Grace is borne of the static hopelessness that the pandemic forced upon the band and, indeed, much of the world, these past few years. It is an album reckoning with the experiences and outcomes of this time geared, ultimately, towards catharsis - moving towards a more hopeful future.


Charcoal Grace is available as Ltd. CD Digipak, CD Jewelcase (US only), Gatefold 2LP in various colours & Digital Album.
