CALIBAN Releases “Devil’s Night” VideoTuesday, 7th January 2014
Germany’s CALIBAN have released the official video for the song “Devil’s Night” which comes off the band’s new album, Ghost Empire. Ghost Empire, produced by guitarist Marc Görtz, will be released via Century Media on January 24 in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Australia. The album will be also released in the rest of Europe on January 27 and in North America on February 4. The video for “Devil’s Night” is available for streaming below.
Görtz comments on the Ghost Empire art, which was created by U.K. artist Chris Lovell: “Another great artist told me about Chris and his art. When I checked out his page, I loved his style and amazing drawings straight away. So I wrote him a message if he would be into designing a t-shirt design for us. It turned out great, so there was no doubt whom to ask for the new album artwork for ‘Ghost Empire’! I told him what the album is about and he said that he would love to do it. It didn’t take long for him to come up with first ideas which were amazing! I hope we can work with him on other projects in the future, he is a great guy and easy to work with and I think the result speaks for itself!”
Lovell added: “I was stoked to read Marc’s ideas as post-apocalyptic imagery is something I have an obsession with. I grew up loving films like ‘Mad Max’, ‘Cyborg’ and the ‘Fist Of The North Star’ anime. There’s something about destroyed buildings and wastelands that stir my imagination and conjure up all kinds of haunting images in my head. It’s also much more fun and easier to draw ruined buildings than perfect ones!
“Marc and I brainstormed ideas one evening and we came up with lots of elements we liked such as crows, scarecrows, rats etc. I sketched out a very rough concept idea and layout for the basic image. The front and back cover is all in one, so I had a nice wide landscape to work with. I liked the idea of a road on the main cover, leading to what could look like a hive of collapsed skyscrapers and buildings, leaning on each other and climbing into the clouds. On the left side a cliff face leading down to stormy seas and a shore line littered with ship wrecks and capsized boats.”
CALIBAN’s eighth studio album, I Am Nemesis, entered the German Media Control chart at position #21.I Am Nemesis was released in North America on February 28, 2012 through Century Media Records. The CD featured guest appearances by Marcus Bischoff (HEAVEN SHALL BURN) and Mitch Lucker (SUICIDE SILENCE).
