CALABRESE Phoenix, Arizona

Steeped in a hard rock swing, brash punk energy, metallic bombast, and a healthy helping of death rock, CALABRESE established a diehard following and garnered immense critical praise outside of the traditional system, emerging as underground luminaries from their native Phoenix, AZ. ... more

Track Name: American Rebel Death Riders
We Are Death Riders
Track Name: Born With a Scorpion's Touch
Oh, when you’re in the light
You look an animal caged tight, dead life
I feel the end I feel the one
I feel the hammer crush down your world
I’m going down down down, oh yeah

Killer heart in the wasteland
Diamond eyes, I’m a maelstrom
You’re the only one to love
It’s the only way to know
I’m born with a scorpion’s touch

True danger of females
The jealous whip of a devils tail
Emerald’s kiss on a broken heart
She was violent from the start
A hellcat in a mini skirt

I’m born with an endless love
Killer heart in the wasteland
I’m born with a scorpion
Killer heart in the wasteland
Track Name: I Wanna Be a Vigilante
Do you think
You got what it takes
To attract the dirty rats?
All the dirty rats
Dark figure in black
Well, you’re never coming back
Well, you’re never coming back

There’s a hunger under dark streetlights
One hundred bullets settle scores, alright
Wanna be a vigilante tonight
Track Name: At Night I Am the Warmest
Tempting the devil’s heart, know your plan
To hold back the surge of hell’s living dead
Through my eyes I see the world
Different than yours
Different than anybody else
No one else

Wandering alone, yeah
At night, vision’s so blurry
With the heat steam of your body
Sweat drips like kamikaze
And at night I am the warmest
And at night I know the best place
To keep you under starlight
To keep you gone

Their bodies burned with a ghostly fire
Lost island South Pacific desire
Grass skirt and hula girls, yeah
Cannibals of holocaust
Shameful lust in paradise on holiday
Sun and vice

Deep rivers
Dark jungles in the rain
Prowl mountain tops
Primitives designed to win the game
Track Name: Loner at Heart
I’m ship wrecked but still fighting
A lousy life of dirty death
Cutthroat companions
Hard bullets and soft flesh
And I know

I’m a loner at heart
I’m a loner and leave it up to me
Just an outlaw murder spree
Well, I’d do it all again
And you know

I don’t care for nothin’
I don’t care for you
Black sails come rippin’
Total destruction
Track Name: Danger
Living like a rat, yeah
Pumping like a heart
Wading through the blood, yeah
Hunger in the dark
Well, a mind bred for hate
Ain’t a law left to break

Well, I know my drive to hell
So endless
Dead to my revenge
So many
Engines, destruction
Power through me
Oh, I love it so

40 thousand volts of
An electric eel
A wounded animal
In a tight dress and heels
Fleshpot for the damned
Streets of slaughtered lambs
Track Name: Mindwarp
Death comes in many forms
Through one door
They found our world
Oh, no
The laughing chatterin’ begins
The choir of madness sings

Laughing ’til I’m screaming at the world
Falling to my hands
Shotgun blasts to end the psycho scene
Falling to my hands

All of my friends our dead
Severed limbs spray
The walls with red
Oh, yeah
I’m gonna spit blood
Right in your face
I’m gonna kill you
Right in this place

Track Name: Ride With the Living Dead
It’s a riot in the burlesque tent
Jaded women and degenerate men
Untamed passion of the trailer park
Rocket city and a lustful heart
The grinning death hunts tonight

Riding with the living
Yeah, riding with the living
Forever coming fire
Riding with the living
Riding with the living dead
It’s only warm to those who were born
On the left hand black of life
Oh yeah

Death is such a funny lie
Dear friends
All you gotta do is die
Well, over cliffs and under cars
Drown in lakes, buried under stars
New dead voices, face and heart
Track Name: Only the Dead Know My Name
There is a place on Earth
Where the ghosts of men break through
Pistol on a hip
Another night with the outlaw blues
Wet blood smacks head to hand
Burning days in the savage land
Bright lights dance a waltz above
Human head in a box of love

Only the dead know my name
Down among ember and flame
Only my love burns away
As my life fades into hell

The bite marks on her neck
The blood that I taste
The chainsaw in my hands
The fear in their face
A mask that hides me from the night
A reflection of the pain
Creatures pulse inside my chest
Black blood in my veins

I’ll tear you apart
As your bones break under mine
Pull you down
Skeletons rot
In a crypt with unlocked doors
Beautiful death
No more
Track Name: I Ride Alone
Re-seal the tomb
Dynamite will hide it from the Reich
Cold Nazi doom
Through the hours of time I fight alone

When the lights go out
Do you know just what to do?
While her lifeless eyes
Still staring back at you
Lost, Egyptian sun
Cursed temple ruins
African queen
Well, I ride alone
I need no one
I ride alone
Into the sun

Thunderbolts above
Die young, go big or just go home
Rip up my bastard life
Burnt alive in a gauntlet of fire
Of fire
Track Name: There Is an Evil Inside
Well, I got no where to go
Heel spurs on a bathroom floor
Bloodstains mark a map of gold
Killer wolf in human form

Well, evil prevails
On the night you left your home
And I’ll take you away

Heartache on my trail
Gonna find my misery
Bad luck on my mind
Always trouble what I find

Cold and holding a dark hate in your heart
Spirit of evil, controlled by no one
And I’ll smash in your teeth in
Your mouth will explode
With the blood and the want
And the hunger I love
