Still working on that hot first release.



Caldera is Sean Matthews, Dennis O’Brien Jr.  and Ian Cavalari. Together they are  a 3 piece instrumental band that bring a progressive element to heavy psych grooves and riffs with atmospheric texture. Inspired by the likes Russian Circles, Elder, Causa Sui, Colour Haze, and The Sword to name a few, it’s no surprise where they got their sound. Caldera is also heavily influenced by historical events regarding geography and the Earth, thus, their name.

In the spring of 2017 Matthews, (guitar) had started regularly playing again with drummer Dennis O’Brien Jr. after a long period of on and off jamming from a previous project. Cavalari, (bass) officially joined forces with the duo in late 2017 and have been an active unit since.

Caldera released their first single “Circles” in June of 2018 and their second, “Behemoth” on Halloween 2019. The trio has spent the majority of 2019 writing a full length and playing out locally. The early months of 2020 will be spent in the studio recording their first full length release which can be expected later this year.
