Caliban: "I Am Nemesis" is out now!
As of today CALIBAN's "I Am Nemesis" is finally out in almost all of Europe, just the following countries are still to go:
SPAIN / ITALY: Tuesday, February 7, 2012.
SWEDEN / FINLAND / HUNGARY: Wednesday, February 8, 2012.
AUSTRALIA / NEW ZEALAND: Friday, February 10, 2012.
USA / CANADA: Tuesday, February 28, 2012.
Last week so many fans tuned in to the album stream hosted on Impericon Radio's website that it almost crashed their server.
German press is raving about "I Am Nemesis":
Rock Hard, soundcheck #3: "There is lots to discover without the short songs ever sounding overloaded or overly intellectual."
Legacy: "With their 2nd album for Century Media CALIBAN impressively underline their relevance and outstanding position in the field spanning between Modern-Metal and MetalCore."
Zillo: "... a bold production with subtle innovations that are not changing the overall picture too drastically."
mBeat: ... ""I Am Nemesis" is the masterpiece of the five-piece from the Ruhr area that is hard to top when it comes to diversity."
Fuze: ""I Am Nemesis" is no concept album, but an album with a concept."
Visions: ""Nemesis" sounds a lot more sophisticated than "revenge", but is as mean. Whoever is worshipping Nemesis like Caliban do can rely on her trumping to them marching into the top range of Metalcore."
Tätowier Magazin: "... the Metalcore five-piece is going to blow your eardrums!"
Big Five: "This will be one of THE top Metalcore hightlights of 2012!"
Slam: "To me "I Am Nemesis" is one of the most innovative Metalcore albums lately which is underlining CALIBAN's position as musical innovators."
Rockstar (CH): "In 2012 CALIBAN are still nailing it..."
On Thursday of last week CALIBAN embarked on a European tour with their label mates in WINDS OF PLAGUE as well as We Butter The Bread With Butter, Eyes Set To Kill and Attila with several shows being sold-out in advance. In conjunction with Monster Energy Drink the band is now offering you the chance to experience one day as the band's roadie! The band comments:
"Ever wanted to be on tour with a band?! Ever wondered what it's like to sleep in a tour bus and be part of the crew?!"
Great, cause now is the time! Become a roadie for one day for Caliban on their current European tour, travel with them (from Berlin to Jena) and find out what life as a road dog is like. You'll get to do everything, load out, set up the stage, watch the show from the stage, hang out backstage... you name it!
"We're looking forward to spending the day with the winner, good luck everyone!! - Patrick & CALIBAN
