CALLIOPHIS is a Death Doom Metal band from Leipzig (Germany).
This is doom death metal of the highest standard, cruel and loud, but not devoid of a share of atmosphere, and, most important, individuality and unique mood.

Calliophis - Liquid Darkness | MMR007

After four years German Death Doom Metal act Calliophis releases its third full length album Liquid Darkness, which is a consistent continuation of the album before Cor Serpentis from 2017.

Both on sound and songwriting, with the six songs the band goes one step further and presents its very own interpretation of heavy but melodic Death Doom Metal.
The focus is on atmospheric and dark parts, always intensified by the distinctive growls.
Again some lyrics are inspired by international fables and myths.

„Krakonoš” is based on the saga of Rübezahl, a spirit of the Giant Mountains in Czech Republic.
„The Art of Shudder“ is inspired by the well-known fable “The Story of the Youth Who Went Forth to Learn What Fear Was” and
with the song “Munk (Warm Heart)” Calliophis brings its Munk trilogy, based on “The Heart of Stone”, to an end.

Liquid Darkness was mixed and mastered at the prestigious Tonmeisterei in Oldenburg, Germany (e.g. Ahab, Black Shape of Nexus, Omega Massif).

Calliophis - Cor Serpentis | MMR018

German Death Doom Metal act Calliophis, now as a five-piece, releases its second full length album Cor Serpentis.

Cor Serpentis is a genuine funeral/death doom metal album that is paved with utterly slow riffage, calm acoustic passages, nightmarish samples and hellish gurgling.
The dark, funeralistic atmosphere is intensified by immanent use of melodic guitar lines and pointed haunting solos lifting Calliophis on the next level of their doom evolution.
Tight tracks, in every sense of the word: the compositions and arrangements are solid and compelling, the musicianship is excellent, and the production top-notch.

The album is a consistent piece of tons heavy slowness serving desperate emotions and hopelessness, an isolating feeling in a dark abyss never ending.
Calliophis is another proof that saying “German quality” isn’t only about products of local industry in several branches.
