Caligula's Horse started life as a solo project for Quandary guitarist Sam Vallen to express the heavier side of his musical personality. The project started in early 2010 while Quandary was on a writing hiatus whilst recording their debut album Ready To Fail. Sam began writing music without the context of Quandary's musical framework to guide him; delving into music that was heavier and more guitar centric, with an emphasis on studio production and layering. The music took an intentionally modern form, incorporating influences as diverse as Frost*, Steely Dan, Meshuggah, Devin Townsend and Porcupine Tree.

Enter vocalist Jim Grey from progressive metal band Arcane. Once combined, the bipolarity of Sam's music, and the dynamics and expression of Jim's vocal created a musical invention much greater than it's constituent components; highly melodic music of powerful mood and depth with strong, memorable hooks and intense, technical instrumental performance.
