Oostrum's band Calculated
« on: December 06, 2011, 11:52:24 AM »

http://www.myspace.com/calculated1

Calculated is a Dutch rockband from Heerhugowaard, founded on the 11th of november, 2008. Our music incorporates various styles and is generally very diverse, but we still have a signature sound (and a lot of curly hair!). To describe our sound is pretty hard in itself - sweet pianopieces, pshychedelic sounds, melanchonic vocal melodies.. they mix remarkably well with heavy guitarriffs, growling baslines, crazy synthesizersolo's and agressive drumming. Sometimes you'll hear all of the above in the same song! Despite all that, the songs still remain catchy and memorable. We invite you to take a listen!

Members:
Merlijn van Oostrum - vocals/keyboards/guitar
Maarten van Oostrum - vocals/keyboards/guitar
Ivar de Hoogt - drums
Lars Jonker - bass
Influences:
Porcupine tree, Pink Floyd, Metallica, John Frusciante, System of a down
Sounds Like:
experimental, with a slight emphasis on mental.

Thanks guys! I'll make a band topic soon enough.
I think the best comparison I've heard thus far was "you guys kinda sound like Pink Floyd meets Metallica!" Heh, it's not that far from the thruth I guess.  :P

In the mean time you can click on this link:
http://www.ffcentraal.nl/band-best-band-of-holland/calculated

and press on the big button on the left that says 'STEM!' (which means 'vote' in dutch). We have to gather as much votes as possible in order to make to the finals of this band competition called "best band of holland", so any help would be greatly appreciated!  ;)

Also, you can vote again on each day.
