Caliban Posts New Lyric Video

Caliban has a new lyric video for the track "nebeL," which can be found below, courtesy of Impericon.com.

The song is Caliban's very first track completely sung in the band's native German tongue, with guest vocals coming from Callejon's BastiBasti. "nebeL" is taken from the group's latest album "Ghost Empire" that entered the German charts at #7 upon its release. Caliban also issues this year-end update:

"Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We are looking back upon an amazing and turbulent 2014! 'Ghost Empire' was released and went through the roof, so we even secured our first Top 10 entry by landing on '7.

"We toured a good amount of the world and played shows and spots that we've never seen before. Everything was unbelievable and crazy, but our tour throughout Russia really capped it off.

"All of it wouldn't have been possible without YOU! Our fans and friends. You make Caliban what we are and we'd like to send out a massive 'thank you!' to everybody for your endless support. ALONE WE ARE NOTHING - TOGETHER WE ARE CRUSHING.

"Still, you know we are always being restless, so we already cannot wait to be out on the road again on our upcoming 'Ghost Empire European Tour 2015' after spending 5 long months off stage.

"We are also looking forward to shredding more places in the rest of the world and bringing them our 'Ghost Empire'. Keep your eyes open for more dates! On our tour in January we will be accompanied by our new friends in Bury Tomorrow, Dream On Dreamer as well as our brothers from 'the Pott' and shooting stars Any Given Day.

"Let's start 2015 with a heavy dose of metal! We are really looking forward to it and THANK YOU again!" More...

Caliban Unveils New Album Artwork

Caliban has revealed the unique cover art for upcoming album, "Ghost Empire," which is scheduled to be released on February 4th in North America via Century Media Records. Caliban guitarist Marc Görtz comments on the artwork created by U.K. artist Chris Lovell:

"Another great artist told me about Chris and his art; when I checked out his page I loved his style and amazing drawings straight away... I told him what the album is about and he said that he would love to do it. It didn't take long for him to come up with first ideas which were amazing! I hope we can work with him on other projects in the future; he is a great guy and easy to work with and I think the result speaks for itself!"

Chris Lovell, the creator of the image, explains how this custom piece of art came to life:

"I have been heavily into metal since the age of 12. It's always nice when a band I am a fan of contacts me with a brief for a project. I was stoked to read Marc's ideas as post-apocalyptic imagery is something I have an obsession with. I grew up loving films like 'Mad Max', 'Cyborg' and the 'Fist Of The North Star' anime. There's something about destroyed buildings and wastelands that stir my imagination and conjure up all kinds of haunting images in my head. It's also much more fun and easier to draw ruined buildings than perfect ones!

"Marc and I brainstormed ideas one evening and we came up with lots of elements we liked such as crows, scarecrows, rats, etc. I sketched out a very rough concept idea and layout for the basic image. The front and back cover is all in one, so I had a nice wide landscape to work with. I liked the idea of a road on the main cover, leading to what could look like a hive of collapsed skyscrapers and buildings leaning on each other and climbing into the clouds. On the left side, a cliff face leading down to stormy seas and a shoreline littered with shipwrecks and capsized boats. More...

Caliban Announces New Album Details

German modern metal force Caliban is proud to announce the release of the band's eighth studio album, "I Am Nemesis" on February 28th, 2012 via Century Media Records. After spending 10 months writing new material, the band is very excited to get the record out to fans. "It was important to us to have an elaborate album without any fillers," says lead guitarist Marc Görtz. "Additionally, the sound of the album is the best we've ever had by far: it is heavy and brutal without being chaotic."

Lyrically, "I Am Nemesis" is a continuation of the band's last record, "Say Hello To Tragedy," and focuses on controversial and often overlooked world issues. Musically, Görtz says, "The album breaks new soil without forgetting our roots. There are new influences such as shimmering guitar melodies and technical grooves with Meshuggah-like heaviness."

The track listing for "I Am Nemesis" can be seen below:

01. We Are The Many
02. The Bogeyman
03. Memorial
04. No Tomorrow
05. Edge Of Black
