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. :)
still sounds like something between old aerosmith and deep purple.

those two girls on the left are ugly.

Lol! :D

Deep purple will always be an influence, especially the hammond organs.
Although this track was mostly inspired by more recent bands like Queens of the Stoneage and De Staat (Dutch band)

Listen to the song you posted,
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlF8OEG4d4M

then listen to aerosmith's version of 'come together'.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wo4GJ6YdDeY

the lead & keyboard sound deep-purple
the bass and vocals sound aerosmith

Hey, I didn't know Aerosmith covered that song! Pretty cool rendition.
Yeah I can hear what you mean. :)

Someone actually made the connection to "Come together" before, must be the vocal melody which has a similar feel.
(unintentionally though).

Here's a song from De Staat to compare. The similarities are within the music and the groove, not the vocals:

that, and also the tone of the bass

maybe in the rhythm and somewhat in the tempo.
but the key and tone are different.

at least to me, but I'm not a musician.

"Being inspired by" is a very broad thing for me, the final result might end up in a completely different place.
I wrote that song after attending a concert by The Staat and I wanted to write something in a similar vein.
Without straight up copying a riff of course. :)

I grok now.
I was inspired by the Red series of Duke3d maps (and also the mapper), but that doesn't mean I intended to copy-paste the person's work.

Just popping in to say that our EP will be available on Spotify on december the 7th. :)

We already posted one song in advance on YouTube:

It's the studio version of Agree to disagree.
