Biography

Cales is an originaly pagan doom metal founded by guitarist Petr ‘Blackie’ Hošek from legendary Czech band Root around the year 1993. First song First Key was released at that time also. Two years later, first long-playing album Bonds of Togetherness was out, showing band in a very good pagan metal form.

In year 1998 together with album of his another band Entrails was released a promo of Cales-Mystery of Lost Equilibrium.

In 2001 The Pass In Time saw the light of day. At that time Skuny became the bands new singer, because original singer J.S. De Sed decided to spend all his time on his own band Dark Gamballe.

Around 2003, Cales changed their style to a more hard rock sound, leaving the trails of their pagan past behind for now. The album Uncommon Excursion is a mix of modern hard rock with a typically Blackie sounding guitar and good work by singer Skuny (also in Sad Harmony) and drummer R. ‘Evil’ Kostelnak (also in Root).

In 2007, the instrumental album called Savage Blood returned to the pagan past of the project.

    Together with Silent Stream of Godless Elegy's album "Behind the Shadows" and Beltine's "Bohemian Winter", "Pass in Time" is a highlight of Czech metal scene for me. :-)

    blackie absolutely slays me, his guitar work on the pass in time is one of my favorites, probably tied with don anderson on pale folklore

    What albums here are doom anyway? I listen to 2 albums and I don't find any doom there. And yes, that are melothrash and melodeath, dammit!

    Oh yeah, and On The Way (Tribal Essence) makes me want to drink from a stein with enormous horns on it.

    I am a HUGE fan of The Pass In Time and Savage Blood. I don't get the "doom" reference with Cales' music, at all, but regardless. I play the hell out of Cales on Brutalnet (http://www.brutalnet.com) because simply stated, it's some of the best and most creative melodic rock in existence. Savage Blood was the best ten bucks I've spent in a LONG time. I read somewhere that it took Blackie three years to do the disc. Every second was worth the wait. I can't say enough good about Cales, especially stuff like Depredator, Wandering Phantom, Faces In The Walls, and The Last Winter Dance. Bravo, Cales, bravo. It's a shame that this music isn't better known.
