about

NOSTROMO Geneva, Switzerland

NOSTROMO publie en 1996 un premier 45 T, puis en 1998 un premier album studio, Argue (Snuff Records), puis l'EP Eyesore (Mosh Bart Industries/ Bisect Bleep).

L'album complexe et technique Ecce Lex (Overcome Records) donnera une dimension supplémentaire à NOSTROMO, devenu une référence du métal extrême et du grindcore.

Il se reforme en 2016, pour accompagner Gojira en tournée.

Track Name: 01- The Drift
The war against you isn’t over
It has just never begun
Looking for excuses to hate
Will never prove you smart

So shut your fucking mouth
If you’re feeling useless
Because you are,
And the choice was yours

You live in a peaceful country
You live in peaceful times
No need for you to fight
To find the meaning of your life

This way to exist for the sheep
Proves you nothing but asleep

Self-confidence? Oversized ego?
The chance has been given to you
To make the right choice

Leading yourself to battles
That would have made
A proud knight out of you

Spitting on your brothers’ faces
To fit this image
That is not you

Get a life!
Track Name: 02 - Taciturn
You keep on talking
Keep on complaining
About what you miss
And what has been done to you
Shouldn't you open your eyes
On what you’ve got?
Shouldn’t you?

Tell me what did you expect
Why don’t you just disconnect

Wasting your time
On trying to convince
You’re doing your best
So you deserve the best
Get back to your princess dream
And shut the door behind you

Tell me what did you expect
Why don’t you just disconnect

Unable to see that all
Is already in your hands
Cocky loser
Halfway homeless wannabe
You’ve been blessed by life
But still keep whining
Cocky loser
Halfway homeless wannabe

Those who know don’t speak
those who speak don’t know

Who the fuck are you?
You’re shaming those in need
Of what you have but despise
Who the fuck are you?
To allow yourself to lie
Self proclaimed victim
You trample on the genuine suffering
Track Name: 03 - Superbia
Never show you my scars anymore
To laugh at me you don't need more
On my trust, got an open sore
Never let you come back

Tryin to destroy everything,
Was all you’ve been given just a glitch?
Talking shit, acting like a bitch,
Like a sad fuck you're behaving

Where does your somethingness come from?
From the depth of your smugness

Guess you hurt me, you’re right!
But I won’t let you win this fight

You made your own choices
We made ours
Inside your head, voices?
Should have thought about this before

Feeding on people’s failures
Reminds me of a vulture
As an unfulfilled fuck you live

Feeding on people’s failures
Reminds me of a vulture
As a sad fuck you’ll be remembered
Or not

Useless ego freak
Track Name: 04 - As Quasars Collide
Seeing ourselves as the central stars
Of this tiny kingdom
As if we created something
Through our so called wisdom

Claiming to rule as lords
Behold the void above
That’s just a glimpse
Of what lies beyond

A quirk of space and time
Leading to what we call life
What’s ours for now
Won’t be ours for long

As quasars collide
Would you just step aside?
So let’s be humble bitches
Through space, we’re only glitches

Lost in a lost corner of the universe
But still in the center of our world
Exceptional we feel
Insignificant we are

Pretentious insects

Claiming to rule as lords
Behold the void above
That’s just a glimpse
Of what lies beyond

A quirk of space and time
Leading to what we call life
What’s ours for now
Won’t be ours for long
Track Name: 05 - Septentrion
I’ll name you Septentrion my son
And make you feel proud
Of what you’ve done
Make up your mind, what’s been said
Is already gone
Draging you down
Let your mind bloom as Persephone's

Riding on courage, serenity as a shield
Make your way through
To the Elysian fields
Impossible’s within reach
Just a few walls to breach
By using proper tools,
And not getting owned by fools

Part of the flock you’ll end as a meal
Frustration, how does it feel?
Aiming at stars that don't shine
For you
Only freezes you still

And still means dead
If you give out power
To those in charge
With the dead you’ll merge

Aim at the sun my son
For the left hand path is yours to take
Track Name: 06 - Das Narrenschiff
Daß Narrheit sich im Herzen regt,
Zeigt dies: ein Narr es nie erträgt
Noch mit Geduld es leiden kann,
Spricht über weise Dinge man.
Ein Weiser gern von Weisheit hört,
Wodurch ihm Weisheit wird gemehrt.
Die Sackpfeif ’ ist des Narren Spiel,
Der Harfen achtet er nicht viel.
Kein Gut dem Narren in der Welt
Mehr als sein Kolben und Pfeif ’ gefällt.
Kaum läßt sich tadeln, wer verkehrt;
Der Narren Zahl ohn End sich mehrt.
O Narr, bedenk zu aller Frist,
Daß du ein Mensch und sterblich bist
Und nichts ais Lehm, Asch, Erd und Mist.
Denn unter aller Kreatur,
Die hat Vernunft in der Natur,
Bist die geringste du, ein Schaum,
Ein Hefensack und Bastard kaum.
Was rühmst du doch an dir Gewalt
Und Adel, Jugend, Geld, Gestalt,
Da alles unter der Sonne ist
Unnütz, wenn Weisheit ihm gebrist.
Besser, daß dich ein Weiser straf ’,
Als daß dich anlach’ ein närrisch Schaf;
Denn wie eine brennende Distel kracht,
So ist ein Narr auch, wenn er lacht.
Drum selig der Mensch, der in sich hat
Die Furcht des Herrn an jeder Statt.
Des Weisen Herz auch Trauer betrachtet,
Ein Narr allein auf Pfeifen achtet
Man sing und sag mit Bitten und Flehn,
Er solle von seinen elf Augen abgehn:
Es wird nicht Lehre noch Tadel verstehn.
