When the gates of the world slammed shut in 2020, German metal spearheads CALIBAN focused their energies in the studio. The results were nothing short of prolific: at first, “Zeitgeister”, a collection of classic CALIBAN songs re-done in their native German, but more importantly, a brand-new album, “Dystopia”.
While “Ascent Of The Blessed” is out on all DSPs the matching video clip, that was directed by Daniel Prieß, will be available at 6pm CET / 12pm (noon) ET / 9am PT under the following link:
Andreas Dörner (vocals) about “Ascent Of The Blessed”“This song is inspired by my imagination of a near-death-experience and the question about my life. It’s about the question if one is a good or an evil person.”

The approach to “Dystopia” was instinctive and organic. The result was simply darker and heavier. A state of the world address and a sign of these locked-down times. The band members worked in relative isolation, not being able to meet up for writing sessions. Ideas were passed around via the internet. Yet, the anxiety and angst they were all feeling came through. Hence the opening line of the album title track and war-cry: “Welcome Dystopia – Come show me who you are!” Amidst the anger and sonic wreckage, there’s still a ghost of hopefulness as the band searches for identity, solidarity and ultimately rising from dystopian ashes.

“Dystopia” was produced by Benjamin Richter (Moonspell, Emil Bulls) and guitarist Marc Görtz as well as co-produced by Callan Orr (Dream On, Dreamer).

The eye-catching artwork was crafted by the creative team of Season Zero that already did “Zeitgeister”.

A long running fixture in the European metal scene, CALIBAN have reemerged with a furious vision for these dark days. Welcome “Dystopia”!
