ATENA RELEASE A NEW ALBUM "DROWNING REGRET & LUNGS FILLED WITH WATER" IN JAN 2020
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.

“Dear fans and new friends, I hope this message finds you despite all the noise from millions of hungry artists screaming for attention.
Born rotten is the first track of our upcoming concept-album based on a complex family drama where the first track evolves around a young teenager giving birth to a girl with no dad in sight. This relationship blooms throughout the album while life throws them curveball after curveball.
I've spent the last 5 years outlining the story and universe through 3 albums with great attention to detail on character and plot during the writing process. This is by any means NOT your standard metal core-record once you start delving into the philosophical side of the lyrics and pay attention to the hair-raising soundscape that is neatly crafted with great care.
If you're bothered by sinister thoughts and a hunger to explore the dark, then I'll hope you will find this interesting and maybe comforting because these last three records took a bite off my soul to write and it's a bittersweet feeling to say "goodbye" to the entire world that has been occupying my mind for so long.
All the best to you and thank you for your time.”
- Vebjørn Iversen (lyrics, composer, producer, guitar)
