Based out of Rooz Studios, East London the band's desolate blackened vibrations are forged by Tim Desbos (Guitar), Ardo Cotones (Drums), Matteo Rizzardo (Vocals), Bruno Polotto (Guitar) & Smittens (Bass). While forming in 2011, Calligram's first release under the current guise was 2016's Demimonde, recorded at Bear Bites Horse Studio, Haggerston by Wayne Adams (Yards, Palehorse) & mastered by West Side Music's Alan Douches (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die, Darkest Hour).
Released in November 2016 on Cimmerian Shade Recordings Calligram quickly caught the attention of Metal Hammer, Terrorizer, Punktastic & Kerrang! Radio's Alex Baker to name a few.
In-between shows supporting Downfall of Gaia, Wolfbrigade, Jesus Piece & trips around the UK & Europe; Calligram were busy writing what has become their debut album, Askesis, their personal mantra on the meaningless of existence. Askesis was recorded in February 2017 at the Ranch Production House with Lewis Johns (Rolo Tomassi, Svalbard, Employed To Serve) & mastered by Audiosiege's Brad Boatright (Trap Them, Mutoid Man, NAILS) & will be released to the world on Basick Records on the 24th November 2017.
