Walter Fornication is a one man, studio project based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
The band has released two new video: "History Misanthropy" (music video) and "The Dark Ages" (lyric video).
""History Misanthropy" appears as track on the new album: ‘On A Journey Through Time
And Space’. It is an Old School Death Metal/Morbid Angel kind of song, which follows the same kind of structure and tonal scales as ‘Politics Of Hate’ on the first demo album: ‘A Revolution’s Dawn’. The song deals with the hate indoctrination of the youth (Hitler and SS Jugend) by the nazis during the Second World War and the shameful role of the Catholic Church during this period, which completely abandoned its values and chose to collaborate with the nazis.
In the end the song states: ‘Still mankind’s cruelty goes on and on…’, meaning: humanity has learned little from history as mass hate indoctrination by religion, the media, certain kinds of ideologies or whatever kind of form still goes on till today."
The song is basically an epic journey through early medieval history. After the fall of the Western Roman Empire in 476 AD, when the Gothic King Odoacer dethroned and banished the young child emperor Romulus Augustulus, Western Europe erupted into chaos with several factions fighting over power and dominance. Who will be the one to restore the might of the fallen Western Roman Empire and restore peace and prosperity on the continent?
The song follows the tale of the Franks and starts when the first Merovingian Lord Clovis the 1st becomes king of the Franks with the help of the pope and the rest of the clergy and sets a whole Frankish dynasty to rule the Frankish empire. After several decades the Frankish dynasty, however, realises that their power is threatened by an Islamic, Moorish force from ‘Al-Andalus’.
At the Battle of Tours, a.k.a. the Battle of Poitiers the Frankish general Charles Martel finally defeats the Moors in order for the new Frankish Lord Charlemagne to become king.
Charlemagne succeeds in uniting the whole of the Frankish Empire and rides to Saxony (Northern-Germany) to dominate the Saxons, ‘With a sword in his hand’. Eventually he becomes the first emperor of the new ‘Roman Empire’, ‘The Holy Roman Empire’. But, it is only when Charlemagne lies on his death bed and his empire is divided in three that his people realise all the deeds he has done and that they will probably never see anyone again in their lifetimes that will lead them away from the darkness into a new day."
