about

Pro Patria Canossa, Italy

Flemish origin Pro Patria was founded in 1988 by Peter V. (aka PVC). Out of the collaboration with CCP arose "Quod Erat Demonstrandum" in 1997. Unfortunately, CCP faced bankruptcy and personal trouble meant the end.
In 2017 Peter was invited to play at the Familientreffen festival, which motivated him to produce "Back to Basics". In 2019 Pro Patria will release its new album "Executioner"

Track Name: I watched you die
Slowly shed my skin
and I feel hungry
for a desecrating fury
leading man across the waters
of an everlasting vow

You will not fail
You will not bend
You will prevail
or I will mend
You will not fail
You will not bend
You will prevail
or I will fire

or I will fire

or I will tear your flesh

or I will fire

I watched you die

Kneel before your master
Your existence's insignificantly small
and at the end I will condemn you
for my narcissistic urge
Track Name: No More
Expression of reason it's still in this world
Worth giving it up because it's all so absurd

It's growing on me, it's growing on you
It's not what you see, it's what you can do
It's growing on me, it's growing on you
It's not what you see, one million will do

'cause this life is just a fraction
But now it's no more
Think you saw a revelation
But now it's no more

Remission of pain it's all set in your mind
Life gets so insane, you're one of a kind
Believe that things will change, hard promises made
While all you cared for is set ablaze

It's growing on me, it's growing on you
It's not what you see, it's what you can do
It's growing on me, it's growing on you
It's no what you see, one million will do

'cause this life is just a fraction
But now it's no more
Think you saw a revelation
But now it's no more

In the light of temptation
But now it's no more

It's growing on me, it's growing on you
It's not what you see, it's what you can do
It's growing on me, it's growing on you
It's no what you see, one million will do

'cause this life is just a fraction
But now it's no more
Think you saw a revelation
But now it's no more
Track Name: Executioner
Come, do as you please
Consequences never to be had
It's just business, you see
But I'm sure you understand
Debts are to be paid
It may be trivial to you now
Once the sentence's made
The executioner will be coming for us all

Aggression, the game is set
Keep on raving until you're dead
Aggression, last words said
The axe is falling, it's falling on you head

Do as you're told
It's always something of a bore
Your blood runs cold
You've always said you'd wish for more
It gets kind of frightening
You didn't hear the final call
A bolt of lightning
The executioner will be coming for us all

Aggression, the game is set
Keep on raving until you're dead
Aggression, last words said
The axe is falling on you head
Aggression, the game is on
Let's party until you're gone
Aggression, it's what you get
The axe is falling, it's falling on your head

Come, do as you wish
Why put up a face that is so sad
Comes an end to lavish
But I'm sure you understand
Prayers don't mean salvation
The sound that hammers through a wall
Waking up from illusion
The executioner will be coming for us all

Aggression, the game is set
Keep on raving until you're dead
Aggression, last words said
The axe is falling on you head
Aggression, the game is on
Let's party until you're gone
Aggression, it's what you get
The axe is falling, it's falling on your head
Track Name: Failure's not an Option
Battle cries over wasted fields
Choice of blood, what anger feeds
Think surrender, your forehead bleeds
It just reminds us on what it feeds

Determination
We've got the world to know
Failure's not an option
It's too late to go
Annihilation
We've got the world to burn
Failure's not an option
It's too late to learn

Deafening sighs over a silent corpse
Inventing something that almost works
The end is coming but there's no fear
Socially blinded and nowhere near

Determination
We've got the world to know
Failure's not an option
It's too late to go
Annihilation
We've got the world to burn
Failure's not an option
It's too late to learn
Track Name: It's too late
Running down an endless road
The future doesn't look so good
Striking for a better world
It isn't all well understood

It doesn't matter now
There isn't anyone who'll help us
Realise that the end is nigh
There isn't anything that can save us

Hiding in your cyberworld
of fashion shows and videos

It's too late

It's too late

Situation in dire need
No-one's looking at the cause
The illusion that a finite Earth
will always suffer our growing breed

It doesn't matter now
There isn't anyone who'll help us
Realise that the end is nigh
There isn't anything that can save us

Hiding in your cyberworld
of fashion shows and videos

It's too late

It's too late

There are too many of us

It's too late!
Track Name: Timeless Body
Dead-born living
and seriously lost
Forget giving
Keep all you've got

Timeless body
Don't leave me now
Timeless body
It works somehow

Look at you now
Your reason's gone
You're oh so pretty
You're oh so gritty
You're oh so pretty
You're oh so gritty

Timeless body
Don't leave me now
Timeless body
It works somehow

Is it gonna crash down
Is it gonna blow up
Is it gonna fly like an overweight back-drop
Is it gonna crash down
Is it gonna blow up
Is it gonna fly like an overweight back-drop

Here in this land
where all ice has gone
Grab all you can
We're just having fun

Timeless body
Don't leave me now
Timeless body
It works somehow

Look at you now
Your reason's gone
You're oh so pretty
You're oh so gritty
You're oh so pretty
You're oh so gritty

Timeless body
Don't leave me now
Timeless body
It works somehow

Is it gonna crash down
Is it gonna blow up
Is it gonna fly like an overweight back-drop
Is it gonna crash down
Is it gonna blow up
Is it gonna fly like an overweight back-drop

Timeless body
Don't leave me now
Timeless body
It works somehow

Timeless body

Look at you now
Track Name: Into the Deep (mix with an Yperite twist)
Bent double
like beggars under sacks
Knock-kneed
we turned our backs
Our distant rest
began to trudge
All lame and blind
Shells dropping behind

Dulce et decorum
and we marched right into the deep
est Pro Patria mori
and we marched all sound asleep

Gas! Gas!
Helmets just in time
Someone yelling
in fire or lime
The thick green light
saw him drowning
Helpless sight
choking, drowning!

Dulce et decorum
and we marched right into the deep
est Pro Patria mori
and we marched all sound asleep

You too could pace
where we flung him in
White eyes in his face
sick of sin
Hear the blood
from corrupted lungs
Bitter as cud
for the old lie:

Dulce et decorum
and we marched right into the deep
est Pro Patria mori
and we marched all sound asleep
Track Name: Tear it off!
Dignity, your dignity, you'll not give it up
Liberty, your liberty, you'll not give it up
Dignity, your dignity, you'll not give it up
Liberty, your liberty, you'll not give it up

Not property, you're not property
Not property, you're not property
Not property, you're not property
Not property, you're not property

Tear it off!
Track Name: Death of a Friend
Once there was a hill where we went dancing for a while
Enchanted by the distance of the suffering that was mine
The days that seemed so short but it was always going to last
How was I to know that it would once be part of the past

With the death of a friend

We were dancing in the knowledge that good time was on our side
The world that couldn't touch us yet it was not going to abide
You stood so tall and firm yet you were crumbling under my feet
Foundations of existence that would yield to other need

With the death of a friend

One day I came to visit, handn't seen you for a while
I'd brought some lovely flowers and I wore a genuine smile
The winding road was long and I felt anxiously somehow
And there you lay all crushed yet no-one cared about our vow

With the death of a friend
