We know Impericon Festival 2015 isn’t taking place in the UK until 04 May, but we’ve got a complete festival line-up now and goddamnit that’s more than enough of an excuse for us to make a Sunday Spotify Slaylist about it.
There are at least two artists with this name
1. A metal band from Germany
2. A folk duo from the United States
1 - Caliban, a melodic death metal/metalcore 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. Read more on Last.fm

What Caliban does nowadays is done….a lot. But, hell….they do it well. Caliban’s first properly issued LP, Vent, released back in 2001, was an instant metalcore classic, not only for its raw and penetrating sound, but for the band’s teetotaler views – refusing the very fermented beverage Germany is most known for.
Fast-forward to more than a decade later, the band no longer openly claims the Edge, and have allowed clean-singing to infiltrate their repertoire… ::shudders::

Metalcore, Deathcore, anything-you-want-to-call-it-core: is there anything metal fans like to do more than bitch over which particular sub-genre of metal a band “belongs” to? We bet plenty that every band on The Hard Knock Life Tour is bloody well sick of hearing the arguments.

The Undying Darkness
27 February 2006
by Raziq Rauf
Temporary fashions in the music world can be so cruel. Caliban have returned from the Ruhr with their fifth album, The Undying Darkness. Having released their fierce breakthrough album, The Opposite From Within, only 18 months ago to massive critical acclaim, leading the rest of the pack, the metalcore scene has seemingly left them behind. Their first three albums saw the Germans pioneering the hardcore metal movement and their (American) peers followed suit in aforementioned vicious style and deep, dark appearance.
