Best Songs in Terraria Calamity Mod

nerffan8000
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 Raw, Unfiltered Calamity 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. - nerffan8000

2 Roar of the Jungle Dragon

It's just godlike

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. - nerffan8000

3 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. - nerffan8000

4 Stained, Brutal Calamity

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. - nerffan8000

Do I even need to explain anything?

5 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. - nerffan8000

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. - nerffan8000

7 Universal Collapse

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. - nerffan8000

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. - nerffan8000

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. - nerffan8000

The music doh

10 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. - nerffan8000

The Contenders

11 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. - nerffan8000
