FALL OF CARTHAGE is Arkadius Antonik (Guitars), Martin Buchwalter (Drums) and Sascha Aßbach (Vocals). The trio formed for a single purpose: to create music that breaks through boundaries. FALL OF CARTHAGE is a band that ignore genre for the sake of heavy music. Their debut album BEHOLD was recorded at GERNHART STUDIO in 2014 and published via MDD-Records. The first album consists of 11 songs that blend melody and ferocity to bring an uncompromising soundscape of insightful lyrics and solid songwriting.

With their second album, "The Longed-For Reckoning", FALL OF CARTHAGE prove their intentions are serious. After numerous live shows within the last few months, it’s clear this is not just a side-project of Arkadius Antonik (SuidAkrA, Realms Of Odoric) and Martin Buchwalter (Perzonal War), who pulled Sascha Aßbach in front of the mic after a long absence from the music scene. Sixteen songs represent a genre-defying creativity and joy for experimentation, as well as, their love for detail and natural sounds. Those who expect programmed blast-beats and typical Thrash or Metalcore structures will be in for a surprise. What you get is much more. Their sound can be described somewhere between groove metal, hardcore and rap without having the feeling of simply throwing sounds together. The versatility of Sascha’s vocals is convincing in its full spectrum. Thanks to the solid and elaborate songwriting that all band members were involved in from the beginning, the new tracks are catchy without getting boring. FOC have grown together musically, and so “The Longed-For Reckoning" will surely be a highlight for 2017. Like the debut, “Behold” this album was produced at GERNHART STUDIO in Troisdorf, and promises a fat ass sound with superb mixing. Be on the lookout for “The Longed-For Reckoning" in early 2017.
