Harry Harrison I can’t really add too much more to what’s already been said about Fatima. Dropped fuzzed out goodness – Check. Grunge – Check. Channelling their inner Nirvana – Check. Arabic influences – Check. But there’s some things that haven’t been said – Mongolian themes, angsty Smashing Pumpkins drone & drumming interludes, active bass galore & some of the grittiest vocals out there. There’s not a song I don’t like on this album. Super impressed. Want Vinyl. Favorite track: King of the Rats.

dcdirkzwager Grungy stoner with some middle eastern vibes and very Nirvana influenced vocals. I would have never imagined a strange brew like that. Luckily Fatima did! Favorite track: Sacred Chickens.

Mongolo Bill 03:59
Floating like a Buffalo, Down the river of your thoughts Heavier than your soul And opinions combined If you wanna barf blood I can teach you a trick or two Hear the clarion call ... ... Join the Cavalry ! Floating like a Buffalo, Down the river of your thoughts Heavier than your soul And opinions combined So you want your days off ? I won’t let you leave the fort Hear the clarion call ... Join the Cavalry !

Arch-Vile 04:25
I’ll make dinosaurs fight On my grass green afghan Again, for I sealed a pact With Arch-Vile, the infernal brat Exhumed from buried soil A man-child, rolled into a ball The larva dried out inside Its pupa, charred by the sun ... Lay down, Over here Arch-Vile ! We’re all covering the same songs Over here Arch-Vile ! Come to me... Feathers in tracheas Make room for the next rehash A vomit of references Your Culture sealed in formalin Lay down ! Over here Arch-Vile ! We’re covering the same song... Over here Arch-Vile ! Come to me...

Turks Fruit 06:09
A whiff of cinnamon and meat From the boundaries of Valhala Have a Turkish De... ...Light up Incense for the dead New borns rising up to Walhalla Have a Turkish Delight ! Have a Turkish Delight...

I’m late as always Are you the one ? I’m lame and sour Are you the one ? Rat tails Intertwined Are you the one ? And now, We’ll die We’ll merge as one King of the rats All and all, We’ll die And merge as one King of the rats

She reigns as queen of deceit She towers everyone She hovers over the pigeons Since dinosaurs were birds And now Have you noticed ? We’ve been played All covered in mud A feathered fossil

Drown a bag of kittens Turn the Gaulians in Romans Never should’ve disdained The sacred chicken omens Head immersed, I’ve been purged In resentment I’ve drowned Never should have disdained The sacred chicken omen Had a wine feast With the Prince of Persia Took the bitter pill With the Prince of Persia ! Head immersed, I’ve been purged In resentment I’ve drowned Like an old augury Gone with ancient Rome Had a wine feast With the Prince of Persia Took the bitter pill With the Prince of Persia ! With the Prince of Persia...

Anasazis 02:56
Yee naaldlooshii’s wearing my face Eating my soul Smoking on the Calumet He’s most articulated But boring as fuck Who needs debate While smoking on the calumet ? Oh the fever insane ! Oh the fever and tears ! Oh the fever and sweat ! Oh the fever insane ! He’s givin’em headaches With sermonnettes Who needs a psalm Smoking on the Calumet ? Skinwalker’s a savage, A civilised leech Who needs a psalm Smoking on the Calumet ? Oh the fever insane .. Oh the fever and tears ... Oh the fever insane ! Oh the fever and sweat !

Big chunks in molasses Mired in confusion Mind reduced to a brain pulp Until it’s smooth like a Straw... ...Berry shake Strawberry brain shake ! Big chunks of confusion Mired in cerebrum Mind reduced to a brain pulp Til it’s smooth like a Straw... ...Berry shake A strawberry brain shake !

We, the wizards Are not sulking, we’re sick Of your growing lack of a creative urge And now we Feel your contempt And your mockery Metastasing Inside us We, the wizards Have indulged in self doubt Soothing your angst With the most banal thoughts And now we Have forgotten Our magic In the mundane We’ve found joy We, the wizards have indulged in your rites ! We, the wizards have indulged in self doubt ! And now we Have grown cold feet And the serpent Is now eating Its own tail …

They’re nice, they would never mock Yet, I give them a judging eye... Arch-Vile will come and get you out Of our circle jerk They’re kind, they’d never mock, yet I give them a judging eye Arch-Vile will come and get you out Of our circle jerk... I don’t need your «peace out» I don’t need your whine I don’t need a Queen Bee Hovering the drones I don’t need your «peace out !» I don’t even whine I don’t want the Queen Bee Hovering the drones
