CALIBAN Announces New Album ‘Zeitgeister’ Out May 14th

11th February 2021 0 By Jon Deaux
¬†It took German metalcore vets,¬†CALIBAN, recording a cover of¬†Rammstein’s¬†“Sonne” to realize that their native tongue was a seamless fit with their time-tempered collision of punishing riffs and¬†Andreas D√∂rner‘s urgent vocals. With fans hungry for the Essen-borne quintet to record an album exclusively in German, the band simply said, “Why not?”, and¬†Zeitgeister, which will be released on¬†May 14th, was born.
11 genre-defining LPs deep into their career, the band’s vision for the album came naturally – a career retrospective and deep-dive into CALIBAN favorites that haven’t had been seen live in some time.
“It wasn’t an easy decision, but once we allowed us to make them as different from the originals as we felt it was needed it came fairly naturally”, explains guitarist and main songwriter Marc G√∂rtz. Of course, some updating was necessary when it came to translating the songs to German. “It turned out to be surprisingly tricky,”¬†states D√∂rner. “While I feel more at home with my native German it made it a lot more complicated, as I had more options to phrase something.”
Formed in 1997, CALIBAN’s legacy has been a tireless one, touring the globe and sharing stages with the likes of¬†Kreator, Killswitch Engage¬†and¬†Dark Tranquillity¬†just to mention a few.¬†Zeitgeister¬†was a welcome homecoming. With the help of long-running producer Benjamin Richter (Moonspell, Emil Bulls)¬†CALIBAN hand-picked seven tracks to bring new life to:
“Trauma” (feat. Matthi from Nasty, originally “Arena Of Concealment”)
“Herz” (originally “I Will Never Let You Down”)
“Ausbruch nach Innen” (originally “Tyranny Of Small Misery”)
¬†“Feuer, zieh’ mit mir” (originally “Between The Worlds”)
“Nichts ist f√ľr immer” (originally “All I Gave”)
“Intoleranz” (originally “Intolerance”)
“Mein Inferno” (originally “My Little Secret”)
“Zeitgeister” also boasts a new track, “nICHts”.
