Callisto, like many in their genre, arose from the ashes of various post-hardcore bands in the early 2000s. In each of their three releases, their sound has evolved: starting with a majestic, doom-laden post-metal sound in True Nature Unfolds, moving on to the appropriately-titled Noir with a dark, urban aesthetic with heavy use of horn and brass instruments, culminating with the - again, appropriately-titled - Providence, which is primarily composed of clean vocal passages.

A recommendation for those who enjoy the likes of ISIS, Cult Of Luna, Mouth Of The Architect, Kokomo, and Rosetta.

To listen to their music, simply click on the album covers to be taken to their respective pages.

Now, I know the discussion of music can be an emotionally charged subject for some people, but I'm not claiming that anything is better than anything else. This is no more than a soap-box for me to promote music that I enjoy; maybe you'll like it, maybe you won't. That's fine.

If you've any recommendations based on this artist, or wish to promote some music that you yourself enjoy, please do so in the comments. Maybe I'll end up enjoying something enough to feature it myself.
