Arctic Combustion (Bard&PBomb)

Author Comments

This song would have to be unique for me in that it took longer to write the lyrics than it did to record the vox.

The music was created by PenguinBomb... if you want to check out his other stuff look in my favourites and you'll find a link to his profile.

PBomb has an unhealthy addiction to the band Meshuggah and it often shines through in his work. I love Meshuggah too so I was dead keen to add vox to this track when I heard it. If I had known how hard it was going to be when I first took on the task I may have reconsidered! The odd time signatures in the song made it very challenging to match vocals to it. I literally agonised over every syllable and emphasis when I was writing the lyrics... and I'm still not sure how I've done.

Oh, and the song was called Arctic Combustion, so I made it a song about global warming. It's science geek metal! \m/


Burn it all... blackened skies... drown the world... in the fire....

Freeing demons trapped beneath the Earth
Rampant wealth machines rape for all it's worth
Boiling guts torn from haunted ancient graves
Liquid death drowning us: the willing slaves!

drowning in the flood (x4.5)
Burn it all... blackened skies... drown the world... in the fire....
drowning in the flood (x4.5)

Burn it all... consume it all... we live to grow now... BURN IT! BURN IT!
Rape the Earth... for all it's worth... and feed the flood now... FEED IT! FEED IT!
Spread the word... to drown the world... the world must drown now... DROWN IT! DROWN IT!
End it all... destroy the world... the world must die now... RAPE IT! END IT!

Weak... lead meek... our leaders: just feeders... feed death machines!
World wide strain... this tension... don't mention... just play the game!

"As the so-called leaders of our bloated economies
are forced to realise their ideology of growth is unsustainable...
As they bicker and blame all but the most obvious culprits...
As groups dependent on the status-quo cast doubt
over irrefutable scientific evidence... I smile.

I dance in the ashes of this broken civilisation...
No more tears shall I weep for that which is already dead.

As steel rusts and rivers bleed...
As babies cry and vultures feed...
As the Earth: denied in its hour of need...
As Jesus reborn performs his awful deed:
He awakes the dead who turn rotting
eye sockets towards the Sun and weep...

For all I see fades...
For all I touch withers...
For all I hear dims...
While taste and smell is rot..."

Arctic combustion... drowning man for all his sins.
Life's deconstruction... watch Earth give birth to all your fears.

Burn it! -- drowning in the flood (x4.5)
Feed it! -- drowning in the flood (x4.5)
Drown it! -- drowning in the flood (x4.5)
Rape it! -- drowning in the flood (x4.5)

Drowning in the flood.

In my honest opinion, you have the most epic growls of Newgrounds. They just seem so dynamic. The lyrics are extremely powerful aswell. Amazing work to both you and PenguinBomb.
