Biography

Germany (1997 – present)

There are at least two artists with this name
1. A metalcore band from Germany
2. A folk duo from the United States

1 - Caliban, a band, was formed in Germany in 1997 under the name Never Again. After 6 months of playing together, the band recorded their first two songs for a compilation, which was never released. The songs were sent to several record labels, and Lifeforce Records was the first to offer the band a record deal. The band’s first self-titled MCD came out in the summer of 1998. To promote the CD, Caliban played many shows all over Europe and a few support shows for bands like Morning Again, Earth Crisis, and Cro-Mags.

After their European tour, in 1999 Caliban entered the studio to record their first full-length CD, entitled A Small Boy And A Grey Heaven. The CD received favorable reviews in many big zines and many smaller hardcore and metal zines. The band was described as a mixture of Slayer, Poison the Well, and Hatebreed.

Vent came out in April 2001. Vent was released by Imperium Records and by Howling-Bull Records in Japan. Shortly after the release, Caliban was offered the opportunity to tour Japan to play the Beast-Feast 2001 in the Yokohama Arena, sharing stage with bands including Slayer, Pantera, Machine Head, Biohazard, and Morbid Angel. The Japan trip was followed by a US tour with Bloodjinn, which was interrupted by the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

    Memorial говнецо песенка, далеко не лучшая у них, вообще обычная. Впечатление о группе испортилось из-за этой песни, когда слушал. Этот рейтинг композиций процентов на 65% норм и не только у калибан.

    Советую Solitude - A World Inside My Mind послушать, нонеймы элитные со швеции, очень похожи на новых Caliban.
