16:19 - !J.O.O.E.! Absinthe is nasty stuff, but then I've only had it from bottles from supermarkets. Apparently there's a "right" way to drink it. There's an absinthe bar in my town which I've been meaning to go to to try it for realz.
The first song off Ghost Empire, Caliban's brand new album, has been unveiled. The band has launched the song "Devil's Night", available for streaming at this location. You can now have the first taste of the new opus that follows I Am Nemesis.
Metalcore group Caliban have finally shared more about their new album Ghost Empire, more precisely the cover artwork that will grace the opus. The cover was designed by UK artist Christopher Lovell (who is into metal since the age of 12 and loves post apocalyptic imagery) and you can take a look at the final result below while you wait for new music.
Caliban went straight into the studio after a run of summer festivals to record their upcoming album to be titled Ghost Empire which we know now is due to be released on January 27th, 2014. Mark your calendars for the new offering from the metalcore outfit. Yet again the album was produced by guitarist Marc Görtz in cooperation with Benny Richter. The follow-up to I Am Nemesis is on the way.

"It's time for some exciting news: we're heading towards the studio in a week's time to record cover songs! Our friend and producer Benny Richter will be keeping an eye on us again and we're hyper excited about how the results are going to sound like. We're not revealing the secret of which songs we will be covering exactly, (yet!), but if you visited our last European Winter Tour you might have catched us performing Rammstein's "Sonne", which will be one of the 10 songs we are recording. Talking about the other 9 songs, we chose from the very best classics and milestones of our youth, but we will also surprise you with some more current cover songs. And we promise, we're not just sticking to one genre!
