From Dallas, Texas Kaliya is a multi influenced mix of grindcore, hardcore, and melodic metal. Thought out song structure and hooks that should appeal to fans of aggressive metal like Slayer, Hatebreed, Carcass, Napalm Death, The Red Chrod, At The Gates, Entombed, and The Black Dahlia Murder
There are dynamics and melodies that recall musical peers like Gaza and Blacklisted; instead of just barked vocals and blast beats, there are actual hooks that make each song memorable. “Choke” and “CVA”, specifically, have well thought out song structures and riffs that other bands calling themselves “hardcore” or “grindcore” should check out. “Brotherhood” sounds like a tractor trailer pile-up, speeding along with Slayer-like ferociousness until it crashes into a sludgy breakdown sing-along refrain at the end.
Kaliya was formed in 2009 and has shared the stage with such bands as Neuraxis, Cattle Decapitation, Necrophagist, Kill the Client, Cannabis Corpse, Arsis as well as many top regional and local acts.
