The American fans called the music played by the band: ITALIAN BASTARD CORE. Core, because the modern core influence is easily recognizable, bastard because its raw sound mixes and echoes lots of genres, Italian because... well, maybe you already know.

Biography

It was a very dark night of 1996 when two mentally insane mindfucked people decided to waste their own lives giving birth to a very, very violent creature: ARCADIA !!! Since then their life was completely dedicated to the band (and so, ruined!): after recruiting two other motherfuckers of their area, they started hitting the stage in Northern Italy and recorded their first demos. Not a long time passed and the first record deal came from NoBrain rec., Venice. "Synth", received a huge welcome by the fans and by the media which allowed the band to finally channel their cold fury and aggressive attitude into this record! Synth emphatized Arcadia as a perfect machine with the only target to nihil the listener, to let him feel the band's cold blades penetreting his flesh, leaving him trembling with fear, hid in a corner... In this cd the influences you can hear surely come from the first Fear Factory, Meshuggah and SYL. The band started playing in the most important venues, even supporting famous acts like Henry Rollins in his European tour! After selling their souls for that success, Arcadia were invited to the Sun and Steel Festival in Florida, to play with Obituary, Trivium, Body Count... The time came to find a more suitable line up: two other bastards pieces of shit with whom share emotions and will to kill. The first American tour started, making victims in the whole California to promote the brand new bleeding album "Fracture Concrete". The new album is as red as blood. Unlike "Synth" which was icelike cold, Fracture Concrete is full of passion to explode in outbursts of anger. The heart stops pumping blood, replacing it with acid and sweat. The album is led by instinct and not by useless plans. Back to the Italian homegrave, the band started decomposing other songs doomed to destroy and tear the fans !!! After a bunch of rotting dates in Italy and Europe, the Band went back to the Usa, this time to spread its sick word on the whole west coast !!! The American fans called the music played by the band: ITALIAN BASTARD CORE. Core, because the modern core influence is easily recognizable, bastard because its raw sound mixes and echoes lots of genres, Italian because... well, maybe you already know. Currently the four sons of a bitch are ready to promote the new album, "Cold Cold Bodies", playing EVERYWHERE (check the dates section to see when we are near you),as soon as the European tour starts!!! So... go on... and be a part of this braindead machine called Arcadia...

Lyrics

Slaughterhouse,obituaries and a love story

Written By: Arcadia

"ti strappo dalle dita, via tutta la tua vita
finche' sara' finita, grigia e impallidita"

black injection dissimulates sensation,
pharma paradise in a lifeless life
a syringe a ring a kiss a catheter
a pill a hug that lasts forever
menstrual sex with a broken old toy
the last experience of my friend Roy
an overdose, love left to decompose
with no regret, comatose

slaughterhouse, obituaries and a love story

a dark minuetto forces me to a dance
where everything spins with no sense
a plastic hand for a prosthetic erection
a paper napkin for my spermal eruption

A MONSTER IN THE MIRROR TELLS ME I'M WRONG
SO I DECIDED TO PUT IT DOWN, TO PUT IT DOWN IN A SONG

"strapparti via la faccia, non e' che mi dispiaccia
come carta straccia, la getto senza traccia"

a monster in the mirror tells me I am mad
so I decided to put it down in a song so sad.

I sold drugs to little red riding hood

Written By: Arcadia

I sold drugs to Little Red Riding Hood
and said hello to the wolf
(which kind of drugs?)

hate me, hate me
put it on rewind and play it again
hate me hate me!
just play it again!

SAY THAT YOU LOVE ME, SAY THAT YOU LOVE AND DO IT AGAIN

I raped Sleeping Beauty in her own sleep
deep in every hole
(where did you come?)

I spit on your love and smile on your grave...

Fragile

Written By: Arcadia

SWIMMING IN A SEA OF DUST / no more to see
CAN'T RECOVERED FROM THE PAST / insanity
IN A MUTILATED FUTURE / no more to see
EXACTLY FOR THIS KIND OF FUTURE/ insanity

I am nothing, I am fragile
do I need to fell this way?
I feel it anyway

I am not that one
I've ever wanted to be
I am the failure's son
for the whole world to see

I am a coward... so you better forget my name
I am a coward...so you better forget me, it's the same
