For the ones that are interested:
As a side-project, I made a solo project with help from other friends/musicans. Including Merlijn & Rob Wijkstra (A.k.a. Highwire). I'm really satisfied with the results, so I hope you guys enjoy it too! :)

Reviving the topic once again heh. :)
Here's a recent live-vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHCuqPuTNgY

It's a cover of Enter sandman, followed by our own song 'A better man?'.

We also went into the studio to make a recording of 'A better man?', so expect the studio version to pop up soon.  :)

pretty tight for a live performance

you should stick to one vocalist or get better microphones. the duet doesn't really compliment each other except when minimized (like during the chorus)imo

also, more cowbell

Thanks for commenting! We're not changing the dual vocal thing though, it's part of our signature sound and we usually get a lot of positive feedback about it. :)

In other news: NEW STUDIO TRACK!  :D :D
I think it's the best recording we've done so far, but I'll let you be the judge. ;)

now that was excellent.

and the vocals sounded better and complimentary. maybe is was the equipment or the sound board setting from the previous video (like somebody's mike was turned up higher or somebody wasn't projecting into their mike enough)

also
more cowbells

Thanks!  :D

We don't have a sound guy for our gigs, so the live sound isn't always perfectly balanced. That's the good thing about studio recordings: the producer can keep mixing until the balance is right.  :)

damn that was tight!

stop fucking around with duke3d maps/web sites and aggressively pursue a recording contract.

i'd rather see you in concert than another map

Haha I'm flattered that you like it so much, thanks man! Unfortunately todays music industry is completely fucked up so I'm not sure if we'll ever get that change.  :-\

We keep doing what we do though, and we love doing it. Regardless of the amount of succes we love it. And don't worry, we still spend a lot more time on music then on mapping. ;)

Also, we recorded another new song for a local project. This will be released on a special vinyl album, but it will also appear online. So stay tuned. :)

They're still doing gigs, but I don't know if they've made a new site and uploaded any fresh material.

Woah, I was just browsing old Calculated stuff because I'm in a nostalgic mood and now I see this haha. :)

The band Calculated no longer exists, unfortunately. Our drummer moved to Denmark, and we couldn't find a suitable replacement for him.

However! We're still doing gigs with a new band called Tea Rex. The music is still very much Oostrum-style, but it's a bit lighter and more upbeat compared to Calculated. In fact, we just recorded an EP, which will be released on November the 16th. I'll post the link once it's available online.

Here's a recent live performance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlF8OEG4d4M

You can browse the channel for more videos, there's even a Pink Floyd cover in there. :)
