Dan Hutt Bangers from front to back. Go work out and get your muscles to this album. Favorite track: Firstborn.

Jonathan van Dyck Really energetic album, very bouncy songs, I feel like this band would be great to see live. The two types of vocals are a great mix, the lows have a great deep sound and the higher vocals aren't too screechy. Love the drums. Favorite track: Molly.
GeN2Mo

GeN2Mo If you're going for off-kilter then you probably should go the whole way. And Atena are definitely not afraid to walk that path. Disjointed, eclectic, Deathcore held together by an air of experimentation and thoroughly left-field twists.
Not big on consistency but huge on seriously interesting ideas. Favorite track: Divorce.

Affair 00:34
Get him out After all the things you taught me the ethics that have stuck with me you don't even bother to stay true to yourself What makes it worth the risk? what is happening? what is happening??

Divorce 03:12
You're nothing more than a shallow self sentered bastard You always said you'd be there, be here you could have till you left her, left us, used us there is nothing you can tell us to help us no interaction no sign of affection I thought it was beneath you I've had enough of you, I've had enough of this the lives that you're affecting the ones that you're neglecting I, feel my hate sizzling You're our own fucking quisling no more mom dad, no more mom dad, no more. hope you know you fucked us all feel it, see it. the lives that you're affecting the ones that you're neglecting I, feel my hate sizzling You're our own fucking quisling JAKOB: 1:40 - It was too hard but we still tried We'll say this end could be a start We'll never know unless we try I'll figure out the how and when, with a heart still stuck on why It was too hard but we still tried I'll say it's all for the best It's what you wanted I guess SIMEN: 2:10 - where will i stay? your or his house? will you see me? every wekend? you are here but I am still all alone in a hollow house and my hollow heart could this just be forgotten, I think its even to late to try it was the best of times it was the worst of times but now there is nothing. could I get myself up agian? or will I sink down this path by myself?

Firstborn 03:21
Take control of your life one is born to evolve and not just to die I see your problems but I don't see your reason I try to empathize but don't really mean it Mommy doesn't love me and daddy doesn't care I'm a bitchy little addict who always lived in fear Nobody believed in me I never had a chance I am waiting for a miracle to come and save my ass No demons to blame No angels to thank No demons to fight cause they're not fucing real we are rotting we annihilate ourselves "I make the boys hard" "I make the men sin" "I make them crawl just to get what I want "I am the voice in your head that makes you" "steal, hate, ruin, kill, fuck, do what god says" we are suffering but you wont see through the lies you could change this with a different set of eyes what you see might not be the resolution of your rescue for your hopelessness salvation won't help us the silence is calling there's no time to turn, the illusion upon you needs to be shattered your weakness will be your strength but you have to wake up no demons to blame no angels to thank no demons to fight cause they're not fucking real

You're fucking others while dad's paying for it I try my best to forget But I'm reminded by the stench wearing the same clothes third week in a row now I haven't seen our money for years you truly taught me all I know never trust anyone, truly know that we're all alone It might be wrong and the reason I'm rotting I know I'm god, I'm satan I'm nothing what I am is not what I would have wished for and everything I've done has been for nothing so see me for what I am what I became and I have tried I have wanted and struggled take me back to the days before it all began before he screwed you and left you for that stupid cunt was she worth it? or just another thoughtless impulse? "I forgive you" do you forgive me? I'm drawing short straws by the hour trapped in a small dark room with no way out I've got it up to my neck and now I can't breathe I think I'm ready just take me back what you see is just my fake reality, my kind of self control. thinking that it would help that i could be better, and i have prayed, i have wanted and struggled "I forgive you" do you forgive me? take me back to the days before it all begun before he screwed you and left us for that stupid cunt was she worth it or just another thoughtless impulse?

I can see the sounds running from the walls I'm tasting colours no one else can see My head is hollow, my body is heavy It's fucking happening you better be ready this is the shit, do you feel it? I'm fucking losing it stumbling down the same direction, waking up from the same dream Knowing it will never end, and I will never change always tried my best with you and get us through this shit but I guess I always knew it would finally come to this I've fought this desire so many times before But my mind is getting weaker and lust has only grown you're the last I have, my sister, my everything shut up, don't fucking look at me shut up, don't fucking look at me cross my heart and hope to die there's nothing to stay for there's nothing to find feel her pain and turn around I'm nothing but weak locked jaw make her shut it call the demons 666 mom is gone cause she's not home let's keep it that way. feel her pain, break her trust. She will never be the same. And I will never, never change. Watch my love cold, scared and quivering in the corner my biggest desire now empty content the fear in her eyes turns it all intro crushing regret cross my heart and hope to die. I'm so fucking sorry I'm so fucking sorry I'm so fucking sorry

Black Heart 02:55
I took a bloodoath with the demon inside I'm wearing armour facing inwards just to keep the dream, the lies alive. I pledged allegiance to the mask covering my face I'm the stranger inside, stranger inside. The panic attacks, the panic reminds me of chapters I never wrote What I am and what I'm not And I know so well that you would accept it well I'm sorry, but I never did Missunderstandings the memories I don't have the chapters I never got to write they haunt me every day and every night and they'll surely do as long as I'm alive The chapters I never wrote all of the things I did not do chapters I never wrote will be the end of me
