Best Songs in the Terraria Calamity Mod

One 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.
The Top Ten
1 Stained, Brutal Calamity

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.

2 Roar of the Jungle Dragon

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.

3 Raw, Unfiltered Calamity

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.

4 Scourge of the Universe

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.

5 Universal Collapse

Obv good, was my favorite because it really captures the DoG fight's essence and converts it into a song. It fills me with determination while fighting DoG. Absolutely amazing.

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.

6 Unholy Insurgency

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.

7 Infernal Catharsis (Rebirth)

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.

8 Return to Slime

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.

9 Fly of Beelzebub

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.

10 1NF3S+@+!0N

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.

The Contenders
11 Guardian of the Former Seas
12 Left Alone

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.

13 Servants of the Scourge
14 Toxic Wisdom
15 Sanctuary (Sunken Sea, Sulphurous Sea)

Can't tell you how much I love this song. It's so relaxing, but also sad and longing. It hits hard.

16 The Filthy Mind
17 The Leviathan Trilogy
18 Blood Coagulant
19 Seahorse Scrutiny

Absolute classic, severely underrated.

20 Astral Biome Soundtrack
21 Interstellar Stomper
22 Open Frenzy

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.

23 Feral Amalgamation
24 Murderswarm
25 Dirt Block

Perfection. It doesn't get better than this
