Attila Premiere New Track “Pizza” – An Ode To The Italian Dish

A new Attila song called “Pizza” has debuted and is streaming below. The song is an ode to the popular Italian dish…

The song’s lyrics were provided along with the video:


You know what you are
A pizza poser FUCK YOU
I’ve never seen you eat a slice
To you it’s just a trend Pizza is my life

Thin crust deep dish double pepperoni
Elios stuffed crust no anchovies
Pizza rolls bagel bites
Cheesy crust is what I like
Put it in the oven
We can order delivery

I don’t care I’m not very picky
Warm and delicious, spicy, sticky
Cut it into 8 squares or triangles
All I really want is pizza in me

Pizza is the greatest food on earth

I got drunk with papa john
He snorted cocaine with his apron on
He got too fucked up for delivery
It was over 30 minutes so my pizza was free

Pineapple doesn’t belong on pizza
You fucking piece of shit
Why would you do this to me

I’m gonna peel your eyes
Out of your fucking skull
I will extract your blood
And use it as pizza sauce”

Paranoid Signs With Southern Lord To Issue “Satyagraha” Album

Southern Lord welcomes Swedish d-beat hardcore unit Paranoid to the label’s roster, issuing the band’s “Satyagraha” album on CD June 10th and on LP July 1st. Additionally, the band is about to raid the North America on the Jawbreaking Mangel Devastation West Coast Tour 2016 with Absolut. Southern Lord comments:

“Comprised of ten biting and unremitting sonic assaults, Paranoid’s 2015 album ‘Satyagraha’ offers up a diverse yet essential dose of D-beat. Finding itself on an array of end-of-year lists, and stealing the No.1 spot on CVLT Nation’s Top Six D-Beat Releases Of 2015, this album demanded the band’s full fury and whole souls. Therefore, you are implored to listen at maximum volume to ensure ‘Satyagraha’ burns into your psychosis!

“‘Satyagraha’ is the first full-length album by Paranoid, the album recorded in Empire Studio, Frösön, Sweden, between December 2014 and February 2015. Engineering and production duties came from Jocke D-takt, with the album mixed and mastered at Noise Room, Tokyo, Japan by Shigenori Kobayashi.

“The original release came from D-takt and Råpunk Records and Konton Crasher, with cassette versions available from Sub//Par and Lockyard Records. Guest musicians include Nils Landin (backup vocals on “Kaihou”), Johan Landin (guitar solos on “Nangijala”), and Christian Augustin (digital noise). Artwork comes courtesy of Andrew Morgan (Viral Age Records) and Jocke D-takt, with Japanese translations provided by Motokazu Tsukuda.”
