In the case of ANALENA, one man's hardcore is another man's noise is another man's punk. Diverse but steady, from bittersweet melodies and blistering hooks to pummeling and aggressive rhythms, ANALENA covers all the bases. Carbon Based is their's second album, recorded and produced at Kozmo studio, Zagreb, by the members of the band themselves, with the noteworthy assistance provided by members of Lunar, another remarkable and friendly band from Zagreb.

Carbon Based is a statement by a smart and mature band, an honest expression of determination and passion in full force. ANALENA follows its own instinct by merging charming melodies with intricate and shimmering rhythmic relentlessness. Stunning and flawless instrumentation combined with witty and poetic slogan-free lyrics takes care of the rest. See you in the pit or see you with your headphones on. You are invited. Until then, as the band itself proclaims in the moving Work In Progress: “Stay alert!”

ANALENA lineup @ Carbon Based:
Ana - vocal
Mijo - guitar, back vocal
Six - bass

Track Name: Carbon Based Organisms
I am my own laboratory. I observe and measure, deduct and analyze. The research has shown I’m mostly carbon. But I never trust the obvious. I will get my hands dirty and dig out the cryptography of my carbon-based patterns.
Track Name: Dream Amplifiers
Paved with good intentions, still, the world is grey. We need dream amplifiers to make it louder. So, they can feel it in their bones. After that count to 10 and all your wishes will come true.
Track Name: Work In Progress
A special report up-to-the-minute from my Ivory tower: mythical archetypes resonate of danger. I pull down the shades. So, as the day unfolds, the plot thickens. Stay alert!
Track Name: Wiederholungszwang
We approach another end of the world. Soon, we’ll get out of this time and space box. Our legs are full of mosquito bites, an itchy reminiscence of our past lives. The air up here is still, filled with possibilities. Time is breathing.
Track Name: Notturno
How deep is this night? Don’t look down. Jump. Leave your fears behind.
Track Name: Spilt Milk
Before I surrender to the future course of events, I would just like to state that there is no use crying over spilt milk.
Track Name: In Theory And Practice
Cut me up in whatever shape you like, So I can fit inside this world. I’ve tried so hard to play by the rules, but this game doesn’t fit me. In theory this should be so easy - Deconstruct my moves to right or wrong. But the practice fails me. I just get a red card like my life is not my own. So cut me up in whatever shape you like.
Track Name: From Automatic To Manual
Focus the camera on yourself. Zoom in. Zoom out. Blame the moon, the universe is not dressed by your taste. 400 years later you would still burn Galileo. And the stars? Laughing. Whispering. Grain of salt, where are you? In the ocean, in the jellyfish. In the tear behind you face. Zoom out. Zoom out. Zoom out. Voices in your head erode your face. Your fears. Your ego. Your truth. Evaporating. Tear is grain of salt is rainbow. Zoom in. Zoom in. Zoom in.
Track Name: Ropewalk Adventures
She awakes in sweat, covered with broken pieces of last night. Still warm, but sharp. She escaped by the skin of her teeth.
