“It’s not about a real virus like Corona, but about ideas planted in our heads that spread like one and eat us from the inside out”, says Andreas Dörner (vocals) about the song and video that are both featuring Marcus Bischoff of HEAVEN SHALL BURN on vocals. “Moreover, it is a concentrated charge of more than 20 years of friendship, a real metal mixture that will wreck your neck.”

While the song is out on all digital platforms the matching video clip, that was directed by Witzki Visions, will be available at 6pm CET / 1pm ET / 10am PT under the following link: https://youtu.be/mva5dI0U5s4

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”, that is due for a release on April 22nd, 2022.

Around the release CALIBAN will play four selected release shows in Germany:

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”.

The band previously released clips for:
“Dystopia (feat. Christoph Wieczorek of Annisokay)”: https://youtu.be/1tpZ-5pwpQw
“Ascent Of The Blessed”: https://youtu.be/XxfiJcwRbSs

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