BD CP 03:04
If you have secrets to keep You will rise in the police force The bigger your bike, The bigger asshole you are You say that everything you do It’s for our security But I’ve never believed a word From someone who fanned the hierarchy And denied his self-conscience You, the invisible ally to protect We, the ones to follow and abide Your false ideals dissolve into Raging gasoline and fire, fire!
Christmas 02:32
It's a few weeks Before the celebration Color lights in the main shopping streets To empty every pocket Stomachs get prepared For a whole week of food in a single dinner Do we need an excuse to be together? All that glitter Hides some litter (To) betray myself is what I always get for christmas
It’s the business of the century So now please, produce in mass This sensational new existence plug-in for everyone Please sell me a fucking mind I’ll afford anything I have To get a mind, to be something more Than just a square man Just a no-one, just a square man I want to buy a mind, I’ve never had one So I’m telling you You got my head You got my mind Am I in heaven or on standby you got my head you got my pride Am I in heaven or on standby
My head is currently such a horrible place to be in Here goes nothing, no more misery, no more self-reflection It´s always been about now and here 5 years now and (I’m) counting more Get ready for the emotional An emotional bloodbath As I lay down staring at the ceiling And today I´ll escape this plight With the company of these friends, we don´t want no light We are no messiahs to unite, we ignite tonight, Through the songs we carry on in filling the void in this heart As I lay down staring at the ceiling Time flies by, as I cry on the pillow
From A Cage 02:56
Skin against (the) concrete Smooth shapes by the single lightbulb shadow Ego has been beaten up Hell’s always been out there But it’s never been so real And now, just the animal instinct Head down, self-annulation Hold the rage to madness Make a wish of death and try to break it To survive another day
Now that you’re gone It seems you’re everywhere My world vanishes faster than it used to I don’t have a solid speech yet But I’ll find the words to tell That I don’t care about the sacrifice I learned how to live without hope But I, I don’t think I’m gonna make it without you
We are the brains, the whitecoats stole And you, the victim of the theft Yeah, here the wound might be made whole (Your) The sense restored and healed the cleft And since, of sanity bereft To make the public buy the rag And read it all again Forever and ever D-oh tidings of comfort to rejoice Joy is lost and therefore your voice We bystanders, our future in decline Our plan for vengeance will come (C)ages will collapse and springs will shine Cages be unlocked We grin at the bastards Who pull the strings They don't know how it feels To miss everything
Lackpitalism 02:37
Your whole style reeks ‘cause of your lack of empathy I don´t want to be spoiled or fooled by your treachery Rogues like you, coven of lies with promises This heady elation of your wealth makes me sick When your pieces fall one by one Your slime will wither wherever you are I just want to smash your teeth On the curb of all the shit you've spread You, discarded lovers that vanish in one night You, unsuccessful suitors that die by the sunsets Unfold your banner now and let the storm wash away your dirt When your pieces fall one by one Your slime will wither wherever you are
Muntanya 02:38
Puja a la muntanya Amb les millors botes que té i a mig pujar son per llençar I arriba al cim descalç Peus i genolls plens de sang I si l’altre gent ho fa Ell també ha de poder Ni que sigui tirant-se pel barranc Les excuses no el salvaràn Quin es el preu de poder dir que ho ha aconseguit? Potser la millor opcio és aceptar el fracàs I si l’altre gent ho fa Ell també ha de poder Ni que sigui tirant-se pel barranc Les excuses no el salvaràn Quin es el preu de poder dir que ho ha aconseguit? Potser la millor opcio és ser un putu fracassat
Tambourine 02:26
Somebody once found The very true evidence of god And I can only say That I’m happy he found himself But no way there’s a hell Worse than the thousands millions of people Murdered in the name of religion To satisfy their interests, They took little empty minds And filled them with plenty of lies


Gener 2017

Después de más de dos años tocando por Catalunya, España y hasta por Europa, presentando sus primeros temas editados en cassette en 2014 por Saltamarges, ahora llega su primer LP, ‘As A Real Return’ (2017). Si bien desde un inicio ya dejaron claro que su juego compositivo es heredero del hardcore melódico y el emo-core de los años noventa, este nuevo disco evidencia que el grupo ha tomado un camino de exploración genuino sin billete de vuelta, partiendo de esta estación. No es casualidad: en los últimos años, y mayoritariamente desde el underground estadounidense, también han surgido bandas claramente identificadas con la escena hardcore de los años noventa que han tomado esta influencia para acabar definiendo el emo-core actual. Así, y de algún modo similar a lo que hicieron Aina desde Barcelona en los noventa, convirtiéndose en el grupo local de referencia que abanderó el sonido de grupos americanos de aquel momento como Jawbox, Samiam o Chavez, en el caso de Anchord y su contexto entrarían en la lista los actuales Title Fight, Touché Amoré o Into It Over It.

Aunque es notorio que su amor adolescente por el hardcore melódico y sus venerados A Wilhelm Scream, Belvedere o Adhesive sigue ahí, los ritmos más acelerados van diluyéndose cada vez más en favor de una progresiva apertura hacia armonías y ritmos más complejos, sin perder el punto de urgencia necesario en cada canción. Se trata de un soplo de aire fresco que también puede explicarse por el hecho de que, a dos semanas de entrar a grabar con Santi Garcia en los estudios Ultramarinos Costa Brava, sólo había dos o tres canciones terminadas y el resto se creó de la nada en pocos días desde su local de ensayo en Sarrià de Ter (Girona), en el ya histórico centro social autogestionado Apaga la Tele, donde ellos también han crecido aprendiendo de las experiencias de la cultura DIY.
