Dark lyrics, "balls out heavy" (Metal Injection quote) and a bunch of humour in their videos: Norwegian Atena take everything to the next level with their new single and music video "Domestic Abuse" featuring Damien! The track is taken from their coming album "Drowning Regret & Lungs Filled With Water", due in Jan 2020. Pre-orders are up on the band's BANDCAMP
atena domestic abuse
Atena have pushed through to become one of the most noteworthy metalcore acts from Norway as well as proving there’s more than black metal that roams in the country by extensive touring through Europe. With a deep inspiration from hip hop, classical composers and love for heavy music the band entwine these elements together with lyrics of darker episodes that occur through life.
Lyrics "Domestic Abuse":
So what?
No reason begging, clenching fists
and fending? (feel tension)
No end in sight no mending to reach
It's not the first time this is all we do together
Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you

Sweaty shaking fingers and palms,
can't unlock the phone
Danger when she lingers in his arms,
not safe in this home, never

No cover, he knows
No sleep when he's close
It's ruthless,
Domestic, abusive,
Resisting is useless
Theres's no place to run
Keeping me up at night
frightened of the next fight

Sweaty shaking fingers and palms,
can't unlock the phone
Danger when she lingers in his arms,
not safe in this home

You wanted a fight, well you caught me in a bad mood
I’m a bad motherfucker, let nobody pass through
I fry motherfuckers like slingin’ out fast food
“That’s not what I meant”
Well nobody asked you
All up in my face with the face that you make, when you try to make me understand what’s going on in your brain
Newsflash I’m not the Oracle
But I can get your ass down to the hospital
Because no matter what I do, it’s never good enough for you, the kind of motherfucker label everything impossible
Hollow is the motto, doing everything for dollars let me give you the definition of when something’s really horrible
Fuck the past, I’m a man of the moment
But a jealous motherfucker be like daggers and cloaks
Then Said you had my back when it mattered the most
And Now you wanna see me staggin’ all battered and choked
You’re on very thin ice, grab a life jacket
While going down a whole like a white rabbit
When I Hijack it, lightning rapid
You’re facing the Atlantic, titanic
I’ve had it
Cry havoc
Die tragic
Die tragic
Atena on:
