It took German metalcore vets, Caliban, recording a cover of Rammstein’s ‘Sonne’ to realize that their native tongue was a seamless fit 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. The band is releasing the first song and music video ‘Intoleranz’ from their forthcoming album. The original, ‘Intolerance’, was released on their classic debut album ‘A Small Boy In A Grey Heaven’. Check out 2021 take on the song and the music video, directed by Michael Winkler for Der Pakt, here:

Vocalist, Andreas Dörner, states, “The song was originally called ‘Intolerance’, it is a very old track from ‘A Small Boy In A Grey Heaven’. In a nutshell the motto is: I will stay different. The song is a plea for individualism and individual fulfilment and against intolerance.” 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.

“It wasn’t an easy decision, but once we allowed us to make them as different from the originals as we felt it was needed it came fairly naturally”, explains guitarist and main songwriter Marc Görtz. Of course, some updating was necessary when it came to translating the songs to German. “It turned out to be surprisingly tricky,” states Dörner. “While I feel more at home with my native German it made it a lot more complicated, as I had more options to phrase something.”
