Caliban New Album ‘Zeitgeister’ to Be Released on May 14, 2021


Caliban announced the release of a new album, ‘Zeitgeister,’ on May 14, 2021. The German metalcore veterans who recorded a cover of Rammstein’s song ‘Sonne’ have realized that their native language perfectly matches the sustained and time-proved mix of hard riffs and harsh vocals of Andreas Dörner. The fans wanted the quintet from Essen to release an album solely in German. And the band just responded: “Why not?” Thus ‘Zeitgeister’ was born.
Over the course of their career, Caliban has released 11 genre- and trend-defining albums. The band’s conception for the album came naturally — the career’s retrospective and a deep immersion into popular Caliban tracks that had not been played live for a long time. “It was not an easy undertaking. But once we resolved to make them as different from the original as we felt was inevitable, it all happened quite naturally,” clarifies guitarist and main songwriter Marc Görtz. However, when it came to songs’ translation into German, looking for some fresh perspective was inevitable. “It proved to be surprisingly difficult!” says Derner, “Although I feel more comfortable with my native German, this has significantly complicated the task. However, I had more means to express certain things at my disposal.” Founded in 1997, Caliban has been a tireless band, traveling around the world and sharing a stage with such groups as Dark Tranquility, Killswitch Engage, and Kreator. With the assistance of their long-time producer Benjamin Richter (Emil Bulls, Moonspell, etc.), Caliban selected seven tracks to rework:
‘Trauma’ (feat. Matthi from Nasty, originally ‘Arena Of Concealment’)

‘Herz’ ( ‘I Will Never Let You Down’)

‘Ausbruch nach Innen’ ( ‘Tyranny Of Small Misery’)

‘Feuer, zieh’ mit mir’ ( ‘Between The Worlds’)

‘Nichts ist für immer’ ( ‘All I Gave’)

‘Intoleranz’ (‘Intolerance’)

‘Mein Inferno’ (‘My Little Secret’)

‘Zeitgeister’ also features a new track ‘nICHts.’
