NEWS: Atena point the finger at the Children of the Oil!
The ink on the artwork of “Drowning Regret And Lungs Filled With Water” may barely be dry but Norwegian Experimental Metalcore act Atena have already put another cut together. “Oljebarn i Helligvann” is the second track the band has written with Norwegian lyrics, and thst fits the tale of the dirt behind the façade of rich Norwegians. “Oljebarn” is a Norwegian term, directly translating to “The Children of Oil” – the generation growing up today, benefitting from the welfare of today’s Norway as a result of the oil industry.
The band has commented: “The song is about Norwegian culture and the enormous Oil Rigs in the North sea that pumps life into the country. Money can’t fix everything, but it for sure helps cover/dull problems. It’s by no means a critique towards the Government, merely an observation of how massive and “evil-looking” the Oil rigs in the North sea look like while waves are pounding in on them as they pump black fluid into the fatherland.”
