about

Acrania’s second studio album, released in October 2012, having as executive producer the support of the National Council for Culture and Arts (CONACULTA), takes us through a musical evolution from their debut album, this Mexican band has established a new and unique sound, combining the power of Death Metal with the folklore of Latin music, a unique combination that could only be expected to come from a place like Mexico City, where contradictions of a violent life collide with a musical heritage full of rhythm and "swing".

"An Uncertain Collision", explores a new range of Latin rhythms and instruments that had not been used in previous albums, as main surprise, the band welcomes a new member: Ignacio Gómez Ceja, percussionist of great experience, perfectly complementing the band, giving even more of those “Latin swing” touches that already define Acrania’s innovative style.

New rhythms like merengue, Puerto Rican bomba, cha cha cha, samba and plena, are addressed in this new album, fused with the power of Death Metal and technical riffs, powerful drumming with unusual rythms within the genre, growls and lyrics that address all kinds of human and spiritual passions.

Tenor saxophone, trumpet, trombone and transverse flute make their interventions as soloists, as well as awesome brass and wind arrangements, this, coupled with the impressive artwork of Eliran Kantor, result in Acrania’s best album so far.

Track Name: Treason, Politics & Death
Is the enemy close enough?
We don’t care, we won’t stop

Look around you
Murder is what you can find
But the real bombs
Are the ideas you hold behind

This is far away from being in paradise
It’s closer to being in hell
March to Managua onward to war
And drive the Yankees away

Chorus:
Treason, Politics and Death
Weapons are for liberty
Treson, Politics and Death
Sovereignity we’ll defend

And when you’re closer
Victory is not so real
Winner or loser
The beaten path is to hard to peer

Blood is on the walls
Beliefs on the floor
Stopping greed is so hard,
Sovereignity of the people
Is not up for discussion,
It’s defended up in arms

Chorus

Ahhh!!
Tell me if you can feel the sorrow
Of a thousand deaths on you
I know why you’re digging that hollow grave
Your treason will be paid with the truth

C´mon!!!
That’s what I gave
That’s what I’ve made
Now it’s in your hands
So doooooon´t, don´t fail.

Chorus
Track Name: Deceive The Pain
Tonight I look into my eyes
Just trying to
Find the connection, the words and the will
and the sense and the beat of my heart
How can I
With all these traps
Keep recalling your eyes and rejecting my…
Way to decieve the pain

Where are you trying to find the way?

What if I erase all of you, from my side
Pull off the sheets of that part of my life

I want to be heartfelt
I want to stop the opression
Of trying to climb out of my fucking errors
And trying to hide my stupid indecision

And I don’t want to forget a word from you
And I don’t want to forget any part of you
I would rather carry this burden
Than break away any memory of you

Chorus:
How happy is the blameless vestal´s lot
The World forgetting, by the world forgot
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind
Each prayer accepted and each wish resigned

I want to feel the pain
I want to feel the hate
I don’t want to deny /
I want to feel the pride
To be strong enough
To carry on with my rights and my wrongs

Life’s a game to lose
It’s hard to face that
I need to call your name, MOTHER!!!, FATHER!!!

Chorus
Track Name: Now
Kiss me, a little faster
You know that life’s to short to throw it away c’mon and
Bite me, lets make disaster, lets burn the pyre, I’ll break you inside, feel my desire, do not stop
Now we are gonna feel euphoria
C`mon and let me show you
I want your sweat and screams right on me
Ride on me haha

Kiss me, my brunette lover
I’ve made my wager, I’ve begun and I won´t stop
Bite me over and over
Just turn around, I’ll make you plead, I’ll make you scream, don’t stop it

Now, it’s the smell of your hair and the way you smile to me, oh! brunette
Now, is the moment to feel and the moment to get sick, it’s right
Now, and through your eyes I would like to gaze
Now, all the unmentioned things that I want to say

Falling falling falling... down
In this lustful hell that´s drilling all my life
I never cared, I never compromise
So close to grasp so far from my heart
And this is goodbye
Track Name: A Praise To Madness
Are you asking me how I’ve gone mad?
Haha, It’s just a matter of feeling alive

And destroying the fears you have sown,
Of destroying this old way you hate and you love
Rearange your thoughts of what’s wrong and what’s right
Dignify your way of living and your fight

Chorus:
Tonight, inside my hell
I will take revenge
Against all those, that try to make me fail

Beware the average man
Beware their health

And rise against who try to enslave your own

And be proud.

Life fades but ideas prevail

Chorus

Long Live Bela Bartok… ¡Por Siempre!
Long Live Simón Bolivar… ¡Por Siempre!
Long Live Charles Bukowski… ¡Por Siempre!
Long Live Gibran Khalil… ¡Por Siempre!
Erasmus Rotterdamus… ¡Por Siempre!
Long Live Sacco y Vanzetti… ¡Por Siempre!
Live Forever Zappa… ¡Por Siempre!
Vive Tito Puente… ¡Por Siempre!

And I have found freedom in my madness, because who comprehends us,
Enslaves something from us…and we won’t stop.

Que no, que no, que no!!!

Chorus
Track Name: Revolutions & Tequila
[Instrumental]
Track Name: But Not Today
Someday in life you’ll step on my pride
Some day I’ll fall down and start to cry
But not today, but not today, but not today, but not…

Whenever you like you could take my life
Confront me and may be you can defeat me now
But not today, but not today, but not today, but not

Chorus:
Some day I may die in the frontline
But you won’t enjoy my fall
I will fight against you front to front
And every blow will be returned

Some day I may die in the frontline
In a battle we can’t avoid
We can’t avoid, man!!

Someday we´ll fight and we´ll give it all
And in spite of that, it won´t be enough
But not today, but not today, but not today, but not…

We´ll feel the loss, the rain, the blood
And with knees on the floor we´ll swallow our words
But not today, but not today, but not today, but not…

Maldita Pena!!!

Come again, I won’t hide
The stakes will be on my side
There’s no reason to live
If you ain’t got the balls to die for it

C’mon please me with the first strike
I know you can do better than that
Make me feel like I don’t deserve it
You know I’ll take it, no matter the consequences

It’s better to stand up than to live on my knees
I may suffer but you won’t enjoy it
The goal is greater than one’s life
A person dies but ideas are bullet-proof

Someday in life you’ll step on my pride
Some day I’ll fall down and start to cry
But not today, but not today, but not today, but not…

Whenever you’d like you could take my life
Confront me and may be you can defeat me now
But not today, but not today, but not today, but not
Track Name: Speartooth
It was said that thunder and lightning,
fire and water came from heaven.
They said we should fear them blindly.
And on Earth with our mourns,
Feeding on sorrows the mighty beast lives on
one great and untouchable being.

Rise, Speartooth! Rise!
Rise, Speartooth! Rise!
Rise, Speartooth! Rise!
Drink our blood and take our soul.
Rise, Speartooth! Rise!
RISE, SPEARTOOTH! RISE!
Rise!
Rise, Speartooth! Rise!
How long have you been waiting for…
To sink your claws?

Half living. The beast keeps roaming with our fears
Half dreaming. Just wake up, don’t take too long
Half living. The beast keeps roaming with our fears
Half dreaming. Do you remember how to bleed?
MY VOICE IS STILL FOR WAR
OUR VOICE IS STILL FOR WAR!

Grab, grab your helmet, grab your sword
Throw away your symbols and your ghosts
You, you have to march on your own.
Kill the king and burn your gods!

Rise, Speartooth! Rise!
Drink our blood … and take our soul!!!…
Half living. MI VOICE IS STILL FOR WAR
Half dreaming. OUR VOICE IS STILL FOR…
RISE, SPEARTOOTH! RISE
Rise!
Rise, Speartooth! Rise!
How long have you been waiting for…
To sink your claws?

My sedated beautiful life
My medicated human race
Monochromatic existence
Frozen synapses.

I have begun to burn my mortal cities.
At dawn all it’s echoes will be suffocated
There will be no frontiers nor chains!
No fears and no disgrace.

Rise, Speartooth! Rise!
Rise, Speartooth! Rise!
Rise, Speartooth! Rise!
Drink our blood and take our soul.
Rise, Speartooth! Rise!
RISE, SPEARTOOTH! RISE!
Rise!
Rise, Speartooth! Rise!
How long have you been waiting for…
To sink your claws?
Track Name: In My Land
And in my land I am respected
You are the one who feels the fear
No bullshit will be accepted
Police state get the fuck out of here!

With history on our side
The past can not be erased
We won´t leave anybody behind
Because all these people come with me

It´s alright
It’s the Speed of life

It’s alright that we’ve reached the limit
Now’s the time to rise again
Against the silence, all our voices
There´s no reason to be afraid
One man falls but one man rises
And resistance is still there
Overthrow the system that enriches
at the expense of blood and pain Hu!!

It’s all right
Don’t tread on me

Chorus:
And it’s the system’s collapse
And it’s the system’s collapse
I dont want to live with chains
Just feed my pain
Don’t forgive and don’t forget
I will take you now to know my hell

And when the people decide, no one will deny

And when sundown comes
We see in the sky our people’s blood
And when music goes on
We hear the cry of those who passed before
It’s when children smile, it’s the Beach, it’s the flag,
Those fireflies in the dark, it’s the sounds, it’s the last drink of the night
Hu!

Chorus (x2)

And when the people decide, no one will deny
