W.G.G.I.T.Y. 03:47
…hold your heads up high – throw ‘em in the sky!. We gonna give it to ya, we will deliver to ya / Fresh grooves flesh.moves like we. are livin through ya / With the bouja goin wild Jurassic.jura / Our sound is.different from.the rest like it is Uhura / Do ya feel our kiss as time.& room crumble / We are the change of the game.like a fourth quarter fumble / Like the rumble in the Jungle we‘re ready.for champs / The world found. 50 in the slums. but they forgot us in the swamps …The frantic.summons from the swamps….Which.part of Ph’nglui mglw’nafh don’t ya understand / It’s Hastur and.Met Carrefour with.a mic in a. hand / This is the end of the beginning heads are ringing through the land./ We.guide beyond the light.like we‘re your only friend / It is destiny tasked here sun-glassed. and masked /.We’re the answer to the. question that nobody asked / We’re the glimpse of the dark towards a. new era starts / Tear down the.monarchs Hallelu Marshall Ar.ts.
Miskatonic 05:46
Miskatonic on the rise fool you cannot pass / This is revenge of the nerds like an atomic blast / This is Miska Mister T-O-N-I-C./.We found all hints – NOLA to the Pacific Sea / That is not dead what can eternal lie / And with strange aeons even death may die / So if you wanna get high of stars and sonic / Join the Marshall Ar.ts class of Miskatonic./ Cthulhu Cthulhu fthagn as we rise we’ll be / Like a GZA style triumph in the Wu Tang theory / War of the masses, Nyarlathotep passes / Carcosa and Xoth unite to turn on the basses / A billion.minds melt down by sounds of horns / Brave new world’s born from the ashes at Little Bighorn / So come on.baby & make the shit rough /.So come on Arkham, Dunwich, R’YLHEH or Innsmouth / It’s Miskatonic on the rise / No lights - just wisdom for each and every size /.All.I wanna do is do your doom doom doom….
Mad Man Sin 05:05
Don’t test me or we get nasty / No words we don’t need your talking there’s nothing to discuss (we know that you.don’t like the foreigners) /.We don’t care how you call yourselves cause one thing is obvious (we know that you.don’t like the foreigners) / It’s the Bass Sick Shit we don’t need your opinion ‘cause your opinion sucks (we know that you don’t like the foreigners) / You fools try every time the. same, try to. split into them and us (we know that you don’t like the foreigners)
Defkis: We heard the water speak, felt the spirit tweak / Showed the other cheek, to.the.ancient Greek / Made.our breeks.in the League of Extraordinary Geek / Digged the holes deep to dance in Holy Week / Rotten teak for our statue from Lalilque / While we seek our peak McPhee in.Dawson’s Creek / So stop the leak what a reek, what a heek / So stop the leak let me.be where is Zeak? easyE: easyE on the mic that means.one, two, thrive / Spitting.words like bubbles in a. waterpipe / Dipping my toe into the deep green tea / I’ll never.be a part of OCD society /.I’m a nit-picking clock-is-ticking grab bag / I’m in all.time for.something rad / In the streets, on the beach, at the bar / Open mind all time.Marshall Ar.ts Mashala / Spread diversity from SF to SXE / Try to get.ahead.of all the limits you can see / The guys are talking shit dropping names like diarrhoea / Me I.just drop labels: BPAD and BPD / There’s nothing to lose be sure tomorrow comes / Be bold and.unique just like soccermoms / and never ever judge people by their looks / Yo Defkis what is.written in the history books? Defkis: We drank the.floods of Trevi sank Lizzys Navy / We’re.the Jones, Casey, Indiana, Bridget and Davy / We’re metamorphic we’re maybe wavy / Crazy - Alphonse Louis to Eliphas Levi / Praise the yellow king! The pallid mask is talking./.Extraterrestrial raw Ching ask Stephen Hawking / This is more cryptic talking circumpolars walking / Never a.side-of-wall-thing never for the false ring… We got Louis on the head, Levy on tail / Coin’s flippin day.by day (don’t.stay!) - Louis on the head Levy on tail / Two sides but just one rail (won’t fail) / We got Louis on the head, Levy.on.tail / Coin’s flippin day by day (don’t stay!) Louis on the head Levy on tail / The light only betrayals....
Black Dogs 02:45
We draw the first page back from a foreign age / as times weren’t better nor fatter but some kind of sage / out of.space sun screamed like.a siren swarm / as Manuxet floats earth into brightness dawn / bewared declared a.shimmy shimmy blackened boom / the total eclipse downtown to Prometheus’ doom./ Delight the shame / Delight the shame boy / Delight the name / Delight.the name toy./ swamps raised to Mountains and splashed in orange skies / I saw geysers spitting black sludge into clouds of size /.I saw the storms blasting bulbs beneath the ground / a solo blast like black dogs on the brightness hound
To Russia with love this is Berlin calling / We spend respect put the hoods on and raise the stacks to all in / For.those who suffer, get ruffer and defend..every spot / For those who never give up and bash Nazis on the parking.lot / No messin around – we keep the real deal real / Like our names were Moscow Death Brigade or What We Feel /.Brightness hides kill the lights we’re. 36 in I-GING / There’s no forget or Forgive and time will never heal a thing / Snakes poison our scene for us it’s blasphemy / We. gonna cut off their tongues whenever necessary / Friends came on.Europe tour traveling 1000 miles / And get suspected and. rejected like they’re Criminals / All those Internet-Posers.come clear and check this / It‘s ‘bout life or death not political correctness / Switch your.brains on and switch your laptops off / Don’t mess around shout your mouth and play with Hasselhoff / But still they talk they talk and then they lie they lie / The truth is: None of them knows how to die to die / So if they talk they talk and if they lie they lie / Just show.them how it’s like to be the one who dies / We keep it up ya kid no one can break our spirit /. We fight attacks against our friends as we’re the one who’ve been hit / So throw your. fists in the sky if your feel the same way / Support our Bros and Sis.in good old Russ-I-A!

Marshall Ar.ts Berlin, Germany

Marshall Ar.ts is floating perspectives. It is a band from Berlin that reinvents itself with every song. It is an uncompromising fusion of high gain guitar, drum and bass, breakbeats and symbolist shouting/rap. One minute, brutally hypnotic waves of guitar & synthspheres pervade your head; the next, funk-inspired bass lines, driving drums, & raps from the Pallid Mask. A black sparkle. Nintendoom. ... more
