The Caliban Thread

We need a proper Caliban thread.
Love, hate, whatever.

Caliban - German Metalcore band.
Pretty decent, nothing special.
Seen 'em once on their last Aussie tour with Gigantour, seeing 'em again on their next Aussie tour this August.

I enjoy them somewhat. *sips martini*

I don't like them enough to want to go heaps, but Her Nightmare are supporting, which leads to a reaction of *left click "buy now" button*

I love them
maybe it's a little bit of patriotism but who cares? XD
I'm totally obsessed by the song "the beloved and the hatred" at the moment

The most generic metalcore band out there. They kinda define the " Generic metalcore " sound.

It was in his interview in Metal: A Headbanger's Journey.

Bump.
New album is out.
Wow.
Shift in style much?
It's like they took every generic progression and threw them out the window and then picked all the ugliest progressions they could for it.

I didn't say it was good
Just said they shifted stylistically.
Some of the songs still suffer from genericoreitis, but I guess that the fact they've been doing it for like...12 years....

Seeing them in November on tour with Emmure and After the Burial.

The new album is very good indeed. Had it on earlier.

Nah not really. They have a big dollop of melodic death metal in their sound. 'Typical' metalcore is more like As I Lay Dying and All That Remains.

Good band, not to fond of his scream though, it seems artificial, like he distorted the mic loads when recorded, especially in that first breakdown section (No mercy for the merciless, No forgiveness) in My Time has Come. Yuck.

Caliban, can we talk about them. I have recently started listening to "I am Nemesis" non stop and it is making me very happy. Honestly, the rest of their stuff rocks too.

Thoughts?

I Am Nemesis is pretty good, there's some good atmosphere to it, but I find that the chugs get way too repetitive.

Walk Like The Dead is probably my favourite song from then.
