ROB FROM PAIN erklärt jeden Song vom \"War\" Album


Born From Pain Bassist Rob den Inhalt jedes Songs, der auf dem aktuellen Album "War" enthalten ist.


The opener on “WAR”. Starts of with a rolling , crushing mid tempo riff. Later on followed by a more melodic middle part. The song is about how relentless the world is we live in and how relentless the people are that rule it. The more relentless the world is, the more relentless the will is to fight it and make it better. It’s a song about determination.

Behind Enemy Lines:

A very fast song that almost doesn’t slow down until it reaches the end part that consists of a destroying breakdown. Probably the most “hardcore” sounding song on “WAR”. Barney from Napalm Death guest vocals on this song. The lyrics deal with the feeling that we are actually lead to believe we are fighting an enemy we are, in fact, not fighting at all. In fact we are all really fighting those who are supposed to represent and protect us from harm, although they are the ones responsible for most of out troubles. It is like fighting behind enemy lines. The state subtly fighting it’s own people…

Stop At Nothing:

Is a mid tempo song in which the first melodic chorus appears. Probably the most “accessible” song on the record all in all. Pounding Bolt Throwerish riffing with a sing-along chorus. This song is meant as a true call to arms for every person. Take fate in your own hands as much as possible, fight for what you’re worth, don’t let the world grind you down, be all you can be. Have a clear view on your views and goels in life and live them. You only got one life to live. Let no one stop you from doing that. Stop at nothing!

Bury Me Fighting:

A song that builds up from a mid tempo beginning and picks up speed straight after that. The middle part has a strong Crowbarish/melodic feeling to it, before going back into the mid tempo assault again. Lyric wise it talks about how the western worls tries to enforce it’s beliefs upon the world as the only true beliefs. It being religion, economics, politics, etc. and trying to overcome and look beyond the way we have been raised with those values to think the are the only right ones.


A pumping, grooving, bulldozer of a song. Main inspirations for this song were Entombed and Crowbar… Jan Chris from Gorefest sings on this one and adds a nice dimension to the whole sound. The lyrics deal with the growing Western imperialism all over the world. The crusade that is once again pushing a religious/western cultural agenda on the rest of the world, although mostly used as a veil for important investments in new economical markets in the world. War is profit, so is rebuilding a country and so are the natural resources of a country. Under the veil of justice commit bloodshed.

Grey Life:

A song that starts mid-tempo and works itself to a more thriving, pushing midtempo groove. Add melody and melancholy and a pinch of despair and that’s what Grey Life is. The lyrics follow the same line. The sense of growing despair within the people in this society. What does the future hold? Can I make a difference? Can I live my dreams? Can I provide for my loved ones? Can I survive…?

The War Is On:

The first Born From Pain instrumental ever! Starts with an Integrity-ish slower riff that slowly turns into a hypnotic drone, clearly leading up to a more climactic part that the whole middle is. Add melody and groove and a feeling of tragedy, despair and hopelessness and you got The War Is On. The song is the longest BFP ever wrote and ends like it started; impending doom!

Scorched Earth:

The shortest song BFP ever wrote! Probably one of the fastest ever too. The song hits in with a fast killer riff, just making way at the end for a huge breakdown, with a black-metalish melody line over it, ending the song as a total crusher. Lead soloing by Pepe from Hatesphere makes this a not even 2 minute long Blitzkrieg. Lyrics are about lost love/friendship and the burial of feelings and finding new ways to overcome the pain.

Eyes Of The World:

Probably the most “metalcore” song of the record. Pounding, metallic riffs turn the first part of the song into having an apocalyptic feeling. The chorus is more melodic with a shout along to boot. The song ends in a Pantera-domination-inspired break that destroys everything. This song deals with the world’s natural resources, the environment and the fucked up situation all is in. How much longer will we have on this planet?

Doomsday Clock:

A total groove monster. The song strats out and ends with a a massive groove, picks up speed in the middle and grooves it’s way through the middle of the song before picking up speed again, with Lou Koller from Sick Of It All giving us the honor to be on this. A usual strong performance. Lyricwise this song deals with the fear among the population for their safety in a world gone mad. Not so much a terrorist threat but a threat of economical powers that try their best to defend their profits and a re willing to kill for it. In a world gone mad, how far are we from annihilation?

Iron Will:

Heavy groove again, with a melodic chorus and a even more melodic ending. The perfect end song, especially since this song adds a positive note to an otherwise mainly negative observation of the world today. Even if the world has gone mad and you might not be able to change the world (yet), the will to survive and make a difference in the world (or at least to yourself) can never be underestimated or given up. With an Iron Will a lot can be reached. With an Iron Will I’ll make my way…
