I'm not saying there not enjoyable in their own way, just for me, they'll always guarantee a good laugh.
Razor Queen(Witch Hunter)
If you like any kind of melodic metalcore, especially Killswitch Engage and As I Lay Dying, I guarantee you'll love these guys.
LeftManOut
Caliban still has the brutal screams, double bass, chugging guitar riffs and most important BREAKDOWNS!!!

Contrary to what some are saying, Caliban is not a Killswitch Engage rip off. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy Killswitch Engage, but Caliban's "Opposite From Within" is better than anything the aforementioned (and suddenly popular) band has released yet. Almost everything on this disc is some of the most melodic yet savagely brutal melodies to be found in the metal world today, and fans of bands like In Flames and Mnemic will find plenty to admire here. "I've Sold Myself", "Goodbye", and "Stand Up" are solid headbangers, while "My Little Secret" is just plain amazing. It's nothing groundbreaking to be sure, but Caliban isn't trying to be, and they deserve as much attention, maybe even more, that bands like Killswitch Engage are garnering. All in all, this is one band and album that is definitely worth checking out.

Caliban's "The Opposite From Within" is just one of those records that comes along so unexepectedly. Easily matching some of the top metalcore releases of 2004 (most notably Unearth's "The Oncoming Storm" and Killswitch Engage's "The End Of Heartache"), Caliban brings much to the table and completely annihilates a lot of the competition. Caliban doesn't do anything drastically different from the melodic metalcore style we've all grown accustomed to by now, they easily show their musicianship over younger newer bands just cropping up in the scene. Having more than 7 years of being a band under their belt, Caliban offers a record that any fan of the genre will fall in love with. But What surprises me the most is that these guys are relatively unknown, even at a time when Metalcore is at it's Zenith. I could easily see these guys getting the kind of attention Killswitch Engage or As I Lay Dying does. All I can think is that they most be alot bigger in Europe than they are here.

Ok first off, a lot of people are gonna tell you "yea they sound like a german Killswitch Engage", which is kinda true and kinda not. It's true that the two bands share a lot of similarities, most notably their nact for writing beautifully aggressive music, but I wouldn't see much more of a comparison than that. Actually to me, Caliban is much heavier than Killswitch Engage, and much more melodic at times. That may sound almost blastphamous to some (keep in mind I am also a huge KSE fan), but it's entirely true. Caliban shows throughout the entire cd, they can play some of the most blisteringly melodic metalcore around. "The Beloved And The Hatred", the opening track, shows this illustration perfectly.

We've had a string of metalcore bands (Killswitch Engage, As I Lay Dying, Lamb Of God, Unearth, God Forbid, etc.) come out with some good heavy music over the past couple of years. Now some think that metalcore is really a mix of thrash and hardcore which is true, but part of it comes from European bands like Soilwork, Children of Bodom, In Flames, Dark Tranquility, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, etc. We now come to the german band Caliban. I think when they first came out, they immediately showed this force which gave the impression to the other bands something like "ok, you done good. Now step back, and let the Europeans show you how it's done." Not saying Caliban does it better, but there's this feeling of freshness to the music that rivals some. If you enjoy any of the metalcore bands I've mentioned, Caliban should be right up your alley.

Awsome cd from Caliban. Their best and most melotic i think. Sounds ALOT like killswitch but german style. almost every song is great exept for My Little Secret which is the most emo song ive ever heard from a metalcore group. Even more gay than The End of Heartache ( the song ). Anyway, great metalcore cd from this somewhat unknown band. If you love killswitch get this you wont be dissapointed.

To the people who think that Caliban took a look at KSE's playbook and ripped them off, you need to do your homework. Caliban RELEASED their self-titled debut in 1998. It was most likely recorded in 1997, 3 whole years before KSE released their self-titled debut. SO...those people don't now what they are talking about. The Opposite From Within is Caliban's sixth (6th) studio release, and by my count KSE only have four, do the math, it's that simple. Caliban are a very underrated band playing some brutal metalcore that only the German's know how. As far as I'm concerned they are the campions of German metalcore. Awesome, awesome CD buy it, you will not be disappointed. Another sick metalcore band (more emphasis on the METAL, then on the CORE) is Cataract. Buy all of their albums as well. Brutally heavy stuff!

I have owned shadow hearts for a few months and loved that album. Then I heard that caliban was releasing a new album so it was a must get. Well I finally got it and I must say that they have improved on a couple things. Production sounds a bit better and the clean vocals have gotten much better since shadow hearts. They're used more often which is not always good but in this case it works for caliban's advantage. This album is more melodic than shadow hearts [but that's probably the Anders Friden factor(from the once great In Flames)]. As you can expect there will be brutal breakdowns and pounding double bass. Standout tracks: the beloved and the hatred, stigmata, my little secret.
