Caliban - I Am Nemesis
'I Am Nemesis' - the perfect balance between unrestrained aggression and catchy melodies. Shimmering guitar melodies and technical grooves with Meshuggah-like heaviness, a slow downed growling metal storm, mixed with clean vocals,gang shouts and sometimes also keyboard parts.
Caliban's eighth studio album again deals with the downsides of humanity: loss and fear, greed and avarice, lies and deceit, madness and loss of control. Guest vocals by Mitch Lucker (Suicide Silence), Marcus Bischoff (Heaven Shall Burn) and the guys from As Blood Runs Black.
From the first song writing to the final twists it took Caliban ten months to forge 'I Am Nemesis' which is more than twice as long as previous albums. Their perfectionist and intense way of working definitely paid off, so the German quintet is more than happy with the final result: "It was important to us to have an elaborate album without any fillers. Additionally the sound of the album is the best we've ever had by far: It is heavy and brutal without being chaotic," summarizes Gortz. The guitarist himself co-produced the album together with Benny Richter while 'I Am Nemesis' was mixed by Klaus Scheuermann in the B.B. Serious Studio in Berlin and mastered by J. Oliver Wiebe in Hamburg's Nullzweistudios.
After 15 years in the music business Caliban are stronger than ever. Around the release of the album the German metal berserkers will embark on a massive European tour that should lay Europe's metal bastions to ashes.
