genres
We don't like the idea of genres so much as long as it's good and heavy music. But to give you an orientation, our sound is somewhere between MODERN METAL, GROOVE METAL, HARDCORE AND THRASH METAL with influences of RAP. According to the press & fans: Hardcore, Groove Metal, Trash, Modern Metal, Metalcore, Crossover, Non-Genre-Core, WTF-Awesome-Crossover-Metal.

Machine Head, Pantera, Five Finger Deathpunch, Heaven Shall Burn, Disturbed, Parkway Drive

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.

FALL OF CARTHAGE have released their third album "Emma Green" in April 2018.

FALL OF CARTHAGE beweisen mit ihrem zweiten Album "THE LONGED-FOR RECKONING", dass sie es ernst meinen. Auch nach zahlreichen Live-Auftritten der Band in den vergangenen Monaten wird klarer, dass es sich keineswegs nur um ein Side-Project von Arkadius Antonik (SuidAkrA, Realms Of Odoric) und Martin Buchwalter (Perzonal War) handelt, die sich Sascha Aßbach kurz für's Mikro ausgeliehen haben. Sage und schreibe 16 Songs verkörpern nicht nur die genre-überschreitende Kreativität und Experimentierfreudigkeit der Drei sondern auch ihre Liebe zum Detail und zu natürlichen Sounds. Wer hier programmiertes Geballer, puren Thrash oder typische Metalcore-Strukturen erwartet liegt falsch. Man bewegt sich im Spektrum von Groove Metal über Hardcore bis hin zu Rap, ohne dass einzelne Titel oder Passagen wie Fremdkörper wirken. Sänger Sascha ist im Facettenreichtum der Vocals kaum zu bremsen und überzeugt auf ganzer Bandbreite. Dank des soliden und durchdachten Songwritings, bei dem alle Bandmitglieder von Anfang an involviert waren, wirken die neuen Titel eingängig ohne zu langweilen. FALL OF CARTHAGE scheinen musikalisch gereift zu sein, die Bandmitglieder mehr zusammengeschweißt und so wird "THE LONGED-FOR RECKONING" schon jetzt ein Highlight für 2017. Produziert wurde das Album wie auch das Debut BEHOLD im Gernhart Studio in Troisdorf, was einen gewohnt fetten Sound und astreines Mixing verspricht. Reinziehen!

FALL OF CARTHAGE werden ihr drittes Album Emma Green Anfang April 2018 rausbringen. Die Tracks sind bereits alle im Kasten.
