Best Songs in the Terraria Calamity ModOne of the most well-known and well-made mods for Terraria, Calamity Mod has become such a big project that it now has its own music composed by DM Dokuro. The album "Raw, Unfiltered Calamity" is still on-going as of the time that this list was made, but it has become an album I listen to on a regular basis. Without a doubt some of my favorite tracks from video games are present here, and I figured it was time to give these songs the mention they deserve. Hopefully this will at least introduce some of you to DM Dokuro's content.
This is the only theme of the Calamity Mod Music that is not a loop, because it tells a story. Sung by a choir and also by Dokuro, it uses motifs from Raw, Unfiltered Calamity, Tale of a Cruel World, and The Step Below Hell, and a conexion with Catastrophes before the Calamity, so I can surely say that this theme is the cusp of the universe of themes in Calamity. It has four parts, each one with a different perspective of the fight against Supreme Calamitas. Maybe it is not that intense, but it has great lyrics and a greater message. Very well done.
It's the longest song on the track, and it's executed so well that this lets it go through a swath of emotions. It's an actual opera, divided into 4 acts, each with their own theme, mood tempo, and unique sound. It's got an actual choir, the thoughts of our hero, an epic sound with many so many instruments and the best use of bells I have ever heard ever. It's a musical rollercoaster. 10/10
I understand why this is number 1. It's literally my favorite song in the entire game, and one of my overall favorite game songs. It's literally the longest song in the entire mod, and it's got a choir, lyrics, and so many freaking instruments. It's divided into four parts, and I have found myself singing this song many, many times. 100000000000/10
I would describe this in detail but that's completely useless to how amazing this track is. New favorite boss theme of all time. I'm not kidding.
The only song with lyrics from the soundtrack, and it's a feature that I never knew could debut as strongly as this. Not only is the singing itself masterfully done, but the lyrics themselves have much greater weight than I would've imagined. Rather than being a cliché'd "I'm better than you" boss theme, the lyrics instead serve to show the bond between the Jungle Dragon and its master Yharim, and take the form of a warning to Yharim about the power of the player being too much to handle. The lyrics along with the instruments in the background give the song a perfect sense of finality, and shows how far DM Dokuro has come since his first Yharon track.
This is easily one of the best songs in the mod, just below Stained, Brutal Calamity. The song has lyrics, and it's not just some "I'm gonna kill you cause I'm powerful" battle theme. It's FAR more than that. It's literally shows the bond between Yharon and Yharim, and it's also a warning to Yharim that the player is too powerful to defeat. The song feels PERFECT for a final boss theme, and it is far better than a lot of the songs in this mod.
It's just godlike
I love this song. It's basically a medley of every single boss theme that came before it; perfectly mixed together with a ton of extra instruments to make it even MORE epic. This is one of the longest songs in the game, and can cycle through way more emotions than the intensity. Overall, it's one of the best songs in the mod.
Although the Supreme Calamitas track hasn't been released yet as of the time I'm writing this, the theme for Calamitas is his best work. A medley of all the boss themes that came before Calamitas, all mixed perfectly and with a combination of several instruments to give them an extra punch. The church organ and (of course) the bells are my favorites, and a song this long is able to go through many more emotions than intensity. All of the previous boss themes and several instruments, combined with its own unique tone make this an experience of a track.
Very nice, I see that Stained, Brutal Calamity is better. This song also seems better in a way that it's fast-paced.
Although Raw, Unfiltered Calamity is what I consider to be DM Dokuro's best work, Scourge of the Universe still remains my personal favorite. From the intro with the bells to the last note, this is a song that screams final boss material. The tone of desperation is masterfully captured, making the boss feel less like a fair fight and more like a struggle against all odds, and I've never seen a final boss theme capture that feeling as well as this one, and the fact that the Devourer of Gods isn't even the final boss makes this track even more insane. Every note was made with passion, and I recommend this track to everyone.
I do like Raw, Unfiltered Calamity better, but that does not mean this is a bad song. It's clearly one of the best songs in the mod. It sounds like it could very easily be the final boss theme, because it's THAT amazing.
It's not better than Universal Collapse, but overall a good song in a way that gets you prepared.
Who would've thought that a boss theme for a sneezing seahorse would be so good? Oh, wait..
A perfect send-off to The Devourer of Gods, Universal Collapse is Scourge of the Universe but at a much grander scale. The sense of an unwinnable struggle is further amplified, the instrumentation is amplified, and of course the bells are amplified. There's not much else to say other than that.
I actually find this one better than Raw, Unfiltered Calamity. It's an amazing song, and it matches perfectly with the difficulty of the Devourer of Gods. 214/10.
Very epic song, I listen to this every day to get my gaming hyped up. Overall, very epic soundtrack. Dokuro did a very good job on executing this song.
Simply stunning. Scourge of the Universe was great in itself, however this track makes it all the more majestic. A fitting track for such a boss.
Solid theme for a solid boss encounter. Theres a lot of pain and joy attached to this song because of the boss fight that goes along with it.
The first thirty seconds of build up was enough to make me fall in love with this song, but everything that came after was enough to place this high in my favorites. This was also the track that helped the bells become synonymous with end-game bosses in Calamity Mod, not to mention that this is arguably the song that fits with the boss the best. The frenetic music perfectly ties in with the insane movement required for Providence, not to mention the literal fiery passion put into the track that fits in with the Underworld boss. Needless to say, I won't miss the Dream Team placeholder.
I don't really like this song as much as some others, but it's still a good song. Easily better than some other songs, but not the best.
I love the song
This song isn't as epic as songs like Scourge of the Universe, but it's still epic. I find this song to be kinda underwhelming compared to Roar of the Jungle Dragon or Universal Collapse, but I still like it.
With Infernal Catharsis being DM Dokuro's first track for the Calamity Mod, he knocked it out of the park with the remastered version made many months later. However, this one takes a completely new approach with the song to give it a whole different personality and tone, especially with the newly added bells and guitar. Not only is the original instrumentation improved, but the newly added motifs fit in well enough to make the original Infernal Catharsis seem insignificant compared to the rebirth.
As someone who struggled with this boss a lot my first playthrough, and seeing how slime god became my favorite boss of all time modded or vanilla, this song just brings back so many memories.
The opening alone is about as menacing as a boss theme can get, and it fits perfectly with the difficulty of the fight. SixteenInMono's skill with the guitar is at its peak in this song, and it was more than enough to make me check out his channel. There's not much else to say other than to gush about how well these two managed to make slimes one of the most imposing bosses in the mod.
Easily the 2nd best song in both Pre-Hardmode AND Hardmode. The theme sounds very powerful and ancient, which fits perfectly with the Slime God's difficulty. The guitar played by SixteenInMono is EASILY the best part of the song. The intro is also very menacing, and it made me IMMEDIATELY want a music box for the theme.
The opening to the song send a chill down your spine as you prepare to fight the first penultimate boss in the calamity series, there's a reason I wasted an accessory slot for a music box of this theme!
An impressive expansion of the Boss 1 Remix he made long before Calamity Mod was even around, this theme is nothing short of energetic. Even the bizarre vocals manage to fit surprisingly well with the song, which I would normally find distracting.
Fly of Beelzebub isn't the best song, but I still find it amazing nonetheless. It has a TON of adrenaline slammed into it, and makes the fight really intense.
My overall favorite song on this list. When I first took a listen, all my mind was bamboozled by the epicness and immense amounts of adrenaline put into it. Great Job, Dokuro.
Hands down one of the best ones.
An unusual pick for a favorite alongside the unusual track name, I know. Don't be fooled though, I absolutely love this track. From the way it uses clicking to imitate the claws of a crab to the rest of the song giving off the vibe of trippy dance floor music. It is not only a great song to listen to, but also a great song to watch with an oscilloscope. Not even kidding, watch DM Dokuro's Youtube upload of this song.
It may have a weird name, but it's actually a really good song. At one point it sounds like a crab is actually clicking it's claws, and the rest of the song is just trippy. Watching it with an Oscilloscope is also fun. 7/10.
Simply the best. Long live mushroom crab
This is my favorite song, I listen to it 25/8...
This is number one
Rather than an intense song, this one takes a much different approach than all the others. Due to the backstory revolving around the Brimstone Elemental, this one takes a much more somber approach. This song would much rather you feel bad about having to take out the Brimstone Elemental instead of being excited to fight and kill it, which manages gives a whole new meaning to the fight itself.
Can't tell you how much I love this song. It's so relaxing, but also sad and longing. It hits hard.
Just amazing, cool tune .
Absolute classic, severely underrated.
Easily the best one
Ravager is such an underrated boss, but ever since his theme came out, my experience with music has been so much better. The intense track can only be played while fighting something as deadly as the 'Soul-eater'.
My 4th favorite of all the songs.
Incredibly underrated song.
Perfection. It doesn't get better than this
