Emma Green

Less than a year after the release of their last album, FALL OF CARTHAGE released their third album entitled "EMMA GREEN." Founded in 2014, the trio of Arkadius Antonik, Martin Buchwalter and Sascha Aßbach remains true to their lineage and is not limited to predetermined, metal sub-genre boundaries. When listening to the album, it quickly becomes clear that this is the result of a consistent development of the band, which is not fixed on trends or cliché, but can be found somewhere between hardcore and groove metal. The ten new songs on EMMA GREEN seem more compact, but don't lose their accustomed pressure, attention to detail and creativity. Without a lot of bells and whistles, there are 9 kick-ass original tracks with the CD finishing on a Beastie Boys cover song in bold self-interpretation. This time the lyrics are more about current world-political and social-critical topics, with the emphasis still on the processing of personal experiences. During the two-week production at the GERNHART Studio in Troisdorf, more than ever, emphasis was placed on natural sounds and fewer digital effects were used throughout. If you like variety and are bored with the realms of the typical metal, hardcore and thrash structures, you should urgently consider "EMMA GREEN." Here's some honest music from boys who are still committed with body and soul.

Lyrics

01. Signs of corruption signs of corruption (3x), signs of theft. see this system, a dropped hand grenade. a volcano, a rabid rattlesnake. deny the truth, deny all the facts, they'll be all withheld and banned. bow down to the demigod, they bow down to you, down to you. no, seriously, you're a fucking scavenger, hiding from the public so your deeds won't be revealed. looking away in the right moment, spreading lies like it ain't a thing. man, fuck you! there needs to be justice. signs of corruption (3x), signs of theft. Hear and listen, don’t just catch that grenade. That tornado, that rabid rattlesnake. s'there anyone good? anyone to stand strong? when all cash has been gambled and all hope has been gone. deny the truth, deny all, deny the truth, deny all, deny! — 02. priceless does it really hurt you? does it bother you more than me? more than ever? does it really hurt? does it really bother you more than ever? There's no more lie to deny. Well, Game over, good bye. no guilty conscience after all. it belongs to the past. don't you say my name, it will dissolve in echoes. maybe a memory slips through but you will shake it off and and make it all right. all compliments bounce off and probably die. no soul-stirring glancesin the after-life. does it really hurt you ? does it bother you more than me? more than ever? is that you? turning your back on me in silence? hehe, wait. we've only just started and now you gon' quit like it's a fuckin' side job? hehe, you're a bad girl ain't ya? Ain't you a bitch? Surprise is: you're not gon' get away with it. I swear i'll break that mothafuckas' neck right in front of you eyes. i'll stick some of that shiny little scalpels right inside his black heart. ain't no fuckin sunshine you know? give it up, give it up, it's useless. i see you suffer in pain and it's priceless! damn, for real though. can you feel my love now, can you? oh, you guys shivering? i spit on you! bleh. it's priceless to see you cry! it's priceless (8x) does it really hurt you? does it bother you? more than me? more than ever? does it really hurt? does it really bother you more than ever? more than ever? — 03. superior Quit! preconception. i for one give a shit. what if i don't care, know-it-all? bout you and your close-minded view, you feel ... superior (4x) we don't fit into your fucked up stereotype, we're not fulfilling your expectations of a young band surfacing, what if we don't want to? (hey!) what if we don't want to? "why not simply do deathcore, black metal or grind?" (hey, hey) what if we don't care? but you're... superior (8x) Shove your goddamn review up your ass (go) on and on it goes, go on and on, go on and on it goes. on and on. superior (8x) your truth (is) the whole truth - and nothing but the truth? your truth (is) the whole truth - and nothing but the truth? preconception, all of us give a fuck. what if we don't care, know-it-all? about your empty words. however, we're just happy doing our thing. does it really have to fit into something? who cares about your 5-star ratings? fuck trends invented, fuck YOUR genRES. media creates its heroes, a world of fake and weirdos. why do you even take time to write it all? why don't you QUIT? superior mind. — 04. down there down there, down there, down there. remember when your dad made you feel life so painfully? your mom hid so anxiously. remember when the state fucked you oh so terribly? your counsel failed shamelessly. remember when your friend died so hopelessly? the cops failed so miserably. remember when your last letter to your granny said i miss you, yours faithfully. yours faithfully. – 05. emma green her name was emma, and well, nobody cared when she left, no one noticed, no one was there, no one noticed. she was still a child when her daddy dragged her down the stairways to darkness. at first she smiled shy and excited and then he pulled down his pants. no one cared - no one noticed, no one cared - no one noticed. mama was upstairs watching “Leave it to Beaver” what a brilliant deceiver. did she just see blood run down the holy cross? unaware of her greatest loss. if you could see all the hooks and chains, the sperm and blood stains. daddy and his friends left their marks on a twelve year old, it's so unbelievable. she died young, she died too young. Emma, Emma. no one cared - no one noticed. no one cared - no one noticed. she was just a teen when some puppy found her lying facedown in the green. not in this town you might think but it just happens everywhere, believe me. she died young, she died too young. no one was there to sing her to sleep she died young she died too young no one was there for her, no, no one noticed. tja... remember her that late september when she left us lying on the green over broken glass. the sun went down for the last time. no one cared, no one noticed. no one cared, no one noticed. Emma you died too young (7x). - 06. lies in your cup reconsider, equalize, human nature. vote for life. hate is here to stay, truth is meant to die. we'd better start to think and worry. unreason winning. unpacified. I'm talking bout the lives of our children. you make me shake my head in disbelief, you make me raise my fist in anger. they drop the lies, the lies in your cup. this ain't no medicine. it only feeds your rage and anger. they drop the lies, the lies in your cup. you sip their fairytales. unless you use your rage and anger anger. that anger. anger. go. you make me shake my head in disbelief. reconsider, equalize. human nature. vote for life. dear folks, we're having a serious topic, you know. calm down and don't panic. downfall, the downfall of everything. seems so near, downfall. see what happened in hamburg in July 2017. the streets were burning.

Slow and low Let it flow, let yourself go, Slow and low that is the tempo. Let it flow, let yourself go, Slow and low that is the tempo. It's never old school, all brand new, So everybody catch the bugaloo flu. Not like a fever not like a cold. All The beats are clear the rhymes are bold. Don't see a doctor or see a nurse Just listen to the music — first things first. First of all get off the wall, It's time to party so have a ball. We slowed it on down so get the hell up. Like a volcano I'll erupt. We got determination, bass and highs White Castle fries only come in one size What you see is what you get And you ain't seen nothing yet. So Let it flow - let yourself go, Slow and low - that is the tempo. Let it flow - let yourself go, Slow and low - that is the tempo. It's the tempo. I do not sing but I make a Def song. You could live your whole life and I hope you live long. On the Gong Show we won't get gonged, We're FOC not Cheech and Chong. Strong as an ox fresh out the box. The crowd is so live they're coming in flocks. And when we go on the crowd goes off It's all music, GENRES SUCK! It's the tempo. Strong as an ox!
