I'm a huge Caliban fan but this is a massive departure from their usual style. It's theatrical melodies utterly ruin their usual heavy and crunching form of metal and I literally can't find anything good to say about it. I've given it plenty of spins but it just gets more and more painful to listen to. Spend your money on 36 Crazyfists Collisions and Castaways instead. They are now heavier than Caliban - who'd have thought it!

I honestly had no idea Caliban were still around when I heard this album was coming out, for some reason they never got as big as ‘the opposite from within’ threatened to make them. In truth there was never huge recognition back then either barely registering against the likes of Shadows Fall and God Forbid all bands which seem to have faded in time.

The new album from Caliban then is a very welcome one and based on the type of music that is popular at the moment this feels very much like parents coming back to show the youngsters how to do it properly. Its brutal yet melodic in quantities that make it a storming album but which might make some of their older fans think they have gone a bit too mainstream, still even the obvious singles of the album give you a good wack around the head. Sadly a lot of the unhinged madness has been lost since those early days but that is what time does to things; rounds the edges, even so they remain deserving contenders even after so long.

Check out opener ‘King’ along with ‘Wolves and Rats’ and ‘Who We Are’ to get a feel for the album

Having never heard of this band before I gave them a listen, really enjoyable metalcore album imo, reminds me of Killswitch Engage a little, lots of catchy riffs with a slight Djent sound that seems to be popular atm, also come packed with great choruses that you can sing along to, highly recommend if you enjoy your catchy metalcore
