The band was born out of a friend's wedding in 2001.
The three of us were all fans of the Caribbean beat and in combination
with our irrepressible urges to play Black Sabbath we formed this band. We also
shared the condition of having reoccurring morbid thoughts of the apocalypse. We hope
you don't take this the wrong way, and we also hope you'll decide to get off your ass
and come dance the Soca with us. |

Interview with Calypso T
The Other Paper
"Apocalypso. The masked, steel drum-noise pop trio finally got a slot on the Bozo Stage and took full advantage of it, tearing through a set fueled by enough raw talent and creative release to overcome what would be a strange joke of a schtick in lesser hands. The band's riotous set culminated in an epic version of the Dead Kennedy's 'Moon Over Marin' featuring an eight-member chorus and a three-piece horn section. Jello Biafra couldn't have asked for a warmer and more appropriate introduction."
"Comfest is perhaps the perfect place to see this maniacal trio. The fresh air and roaming freakiness goes hand-in-hand with the sounds of a cruise ship headed straight to Hell. These three virtuosos give stunning steel drum treatments to everything from the free jazz of Roland Kirk to the speed metal of Slayer. Honestly, you only need to see them play "Immigrant Song" once in your life to get the gist, but boy is it fun."
The Other Paper
"...What followed him on the same stage blew my mind: Apocalypso, a three-piece of bass, drums and steel drums-and all the guys wearing expressionless white masks. Wow! I wish acts like this strange but brilliant trio were on the main stage; they did a ton of whacky stuff superbly, from the classical classic 'Sabre Dance' to Led Zeppelin's 'Immigrant Song.' Truly awesome."
