    I like the song but the chorus isint as good as the real thing because i like the growl singing but the screaming isint really suiting in the chorus above all i think they did a pretty awesome and aswell decent cover oh and people who dont like it please dont be too harsh i mean if you dont like metalcore why bother watching…

  • Mark

    A side effect of this could be that Caliban fans, out of curiosity, start listening to Rammstein, and that can’t be a bad thing.

  • MBL

    Why murder it? I mean, Rammsteins song is still there, and no one is forcing you to listen to this.
    Anyway, I find the cover pretty decent, though I’m not a big fan of Metalcore, I still like it, ’cause like Danny said, it’s interesting to hear this song in a completely different style.

    There’s nothing wrong with riding around on a 10ft foam spraying penis! lol – EVERYTHING is wrong when awful bands murder a superb track. The foam penis won’t make your ears bleed, this however DOES !

  • Danny

    I’ll never understand why people get their panties in a bunch whenever someone covers a song they love? I’m not a fan of Caliban’s because quite frankly, I find most of their songs to be by the numbers metalcore. But I like this because it’s a new twist on a song I love. The kick drums on the chorus are awesome

    To all of those “how dare they” types, I’m surprised. You love a band who ride around on 10ft foam spraying penises but you are offended by someone covering a song? Listen to it objectively. It’s fine if you don’t like it, but don’t go getting all high and mighty on the rest of us

    yeh – and calibans ‘stlye’ is awful

  • Pit

    did you ever see them live?
    i am from germany, and saw both versions of sonne live.

    and calibans was much more kick-ass.

    and its not only sonne, they covered more than tracks, wich be released in the summer-holidays.

    caliban is 1 of the best metalcorebands in the world. just give them a chance.

    rammstein is such another another kind of music.

    when you cover a song, you do it in your style, and this is their style.

    The only band that “scream”, that could do ‘Sonne’ justice is DIR EN GREY 😀 ! now thats a cover id like to hear!!!!
    – This however is Dreadful ! MASSIVE THUMBS DOWN – Booooo !

  • Enn

    The screaming makes it intolerable to listen to.

    Why would those idiots do such a thing to a masterpiece!?

    That’s like drawing a moustache on Mona Lisa! Oh, wait….

  • Philmeister

    Doesn’t sound “that” bad. But then again how could you make Sonne sound bad? Best thing in Caliban’s version is still the original chorus anyway. So they didn’t improve the in-improvable, but it’s a nice try.

  • SPARTAN-45

    I love Sonne, it’s one of my top favorite RAMMSTEIN songs. This version god awful. They took a beautiful song and turned it into shit black metal and pig squeals.

    I won’t be stomping over anyone at the store to get this album that’s for sure.

  • no-1-ramm-fan

    How dare they !!! They are NOT worthy ! lol

  • Taryn

    No concept of what makes Rammstein what they are. Just a group of guys that want to be as cool as them.

  • Littleluckylink

    The screaming in the chorus ruins it for me.

  • Narif

    It sounds awesome!
    Of course it wont top the original but still 😀
    Cant wait to hear the full song
