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 Dörner‘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.
Vocalist Andreas Dörner states this about the official new upcoming record:

With the help of long-running producer Benjamin Richter (Moonspell, Emil Bulls)
Caliban hand-picked seven tracks to bring new life to, here is the official track-list:
