CALIBAN - Releases New Single and Video For “Virus Feat. Marcus Bischoff of Heaven Shall Burn"


German Metalcore outif, CALIBAN releases the new song “Virus feat. Marcus Bischoff of Heaven Shall Burn” today via Century Media Records. The track is available on all digital platforms and the music video, which was directed by Witzki Visions.

“It’s not about a real virus like COVID, but about ideas planted in our heads that spread like one and eat us from the inside out”, states CALIBAN vocalist, Andreas Dörner, about the song and video, which features Marcus Bischoff of HEAVEN SHALL BURN on vocals. “Moreover, it is a concentrated charge of more than 20 years of friendship, a real metal mixture that will wreck your neck.”

Check out the band’s previously released tracks “Dystopia (feat. Christoph Wieczorek of Annisokay)” and “Ascent Of The Blessed”.

When the gates of the world slammed shut in 2020, German metal spearheads CALIBAN focused their energies in the studio. The results were nothing short of prolific: at first, Zeitgeister, a collection of classic CALIBAN songs re-done in their native German, but more importantly, a brand-new album, Dystopia, that is due for a release on April 22nd, 2022.


Around the release CALIBAN will play four selected release shows in Germany. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit the band’s website, HERE.

The approach to Dystopia was instinctive and organic. The result was simply darker and heavier. A state of the world address and a sign of these locked-down times. The band members worked in relative isolation, not being able to meet up for writing sessions. Ideas were passed around via the internet. Yet, the anxiety and angst they were all feeling came through. Hence the opening line of the album title track and war-cry: “Welcome Dystopia – Come show me who you are!” Amidst the anger and sonic wreckage, there’s still a ghost of hopefulness as the band searches for identity, solidarity and ultimately rising from dystopian ashes. A long running fixture in the European metal scene, CALIBAN have reemerged with a furious vision for these dark days. Welcome Dystopia.

Dystopia was produced by Benjamin Richter (Moonspell, Emil Bulls) and guitarist Marc Görtz, as well as co-produced by Callan Orr (Dream On, Dreamer). Additionally, the eye-catching artwork was crafted by the creative team of Season Zero that already did Zeitgeister.
