Caliban Offer New Track ‘Dein R3.ich’ for Free Download
German metal outfit Caliban have just revealed a track from their upcoming eighth studio album, ‘I Am Nemesis.’ The new track ‘Dein R3.ich’ has been made available for fans to download through Century Media.
Having just entered their 15th year as a band, Caliban have come into 2012 with another piece of face-meltingly twisted German metal. ‘Dein R3.ich is the second track from ‘I Am Nemesis,’ having released a video for the song ‘Memorial’ in December.
‘I Am Nemesis’ was created in the likeness of Caliban’s 2009 record, ‘Say Hello to Tragedy,’ which focused on controversial and often overlooked world issues. One of the subjects tackled in ‘Say Hello to Tragedy’ was the now infamous Fritzl case, where a woman was held captive in her father’s basement for 24 years.
“The album breaks new soil without forgetting our roots,” comments guitarist Marc Görtz. “There are new influences such as shimmering guitar melodies and technical grooves with Meshuggah-like heaviness.” ‘Dein R3.ich’ is certainly proof of Görtz’s statement, delivering a punishing track reminiscent of bands such as Meshuggah and Lamb of God.
Caliban are set to promote ‘I Am Nemesis’ in the upcoming European ‘Get Infected’ Tour – featuring We Butter the Bread With Butter, Eyes Set to Kill and Attila.
