Calmando Qual is a Gothic-visual kei band, formed in August 2001. They signed to Starwave Records in 2010.


In August 2001, Hibiki and Tak formed Calmando Qual. Their music can be described as 'gothic rock' at their core, in addition to lyrics based on the theme of the cruelty and grief that lurk within beauty, and pieces that produce feelings of tension or exhilaration like music in a movie. The band's live performances use props and pyrotechnics, and they hammer out a peculiar world view via a fastidiousness regarding image and lighting effects. Not just domestic, they are showered with attention from foreign street scenes and before now they have acted in 4 European tours. In 2006, at Germany's leading gothic event "Amphi Festival", they enchanted an aggressive stage before an audience of 2,000 people and the following year released a live and image DVD in Europe. Also with regards to domestic activity, from their first formation they have made countless projects of autonomous events in order to attempt a revitalization of the scene.
In 2007, in pursuit of a more emotional, heavier band sound, along with a change to their visual aspect, the band name was changed to Twisted Clock and a major distribution full album was released from EXELLEX Records.
In June 2009, they once again resumed activities under the original name of Calmando Qual, and the following year signed a deal with Starwave Records. After the European tour in 2013 Ken-ka decided to leave Calmando Qual, and his last live was held on October 7th. Since then he has been replaced by support member Till.
