about

Red Ankh Denver, Colorado

Red Ankh is highly experimental, including (but not in every song) elements of black metal, chiptune, dance, death metal, folk, gabber, gothic, industrial, power metal, progressive, symphonic metal, groove metal, and trance.

Early works were mostly instrumental. That changed with Bronze. The goal of the project is to break down genre boundaries, keep music inventive, and inspire.

Track Name: Orion
Her palms sweat uncontrolled
her mind is racing
her brain is host for two
Orion is waiting

None to trust but the self
None to trust but the split self
Divided decision
Divided in to two minds

Orion will find a way

A love unbound by Space or by distance
Driven by purest unity
By loss or by loneliness she is bound to confess
But true to her he will always be

A light in the darkness of her mind, Orion
A speaker of truth when all else are blind, Orion
When her sky falls down he stands his ground, Orion
But don't forget, Alice, to you he's bound, Oh, Orion

Born in to, he'd die for you
If only, if only he could
To take your hand, please understand
This part of you

Only you can see, Alice you must be
The one to change these things
For now he's what you need, but understand this disease
There will come a time to forget him

Alice get a grip on
Your surroundings now
Look at what they have done
Never mind of how

No time to turn around
Orion is waiting
Just say the word to him
Orion will save you

Orion will find a way

A love unbound by Space or by distance
Driven by purest unity
By loss or by loneliness she is bound to confess
But true to her he will always be

A light in the darkness of her mind, Orion
A speaker of truth when all else are blind, Orion
When her sky falls down he stands his ground, Orion
But don't forget, Alice, to you he's bound, Oh, Orion

Born in to, he'd die for you
If only, if only he could
To take your hand, please understand
This part of you

Born in to, he'd die for you
If only, if only he could
To take your hand, please understand
This servitude
Track Name: Game Boy
My Game Boy, sing a song to me
A cute little thing, reminds me to dream, a lullaby
My Game Boy, tell me a tale
On a two bit palette, grays and greens to paint it, a handheld world


dull colors, no back light, but you brighten up my world
To me, chip tune me, adjust contrast to see
Block figures, stiff pixels, but it's clear to me, my world
To me, chip tune me, 8 bits of majesty


My Game Boy, sing a song to me
A cute little thing, reminds me to dream, a lullaby
My Game Boy, tell me a tale
On a two bit palette, grays and greens to paint it, a handheld world


One pulse wave, two square waves, one white noise, it's perfect
To me, chip tune me, equip head phones for stereo
One sixty by one forty four LCD, oll korrect
To me, chip tune me, four double AAs on the go

My first game console, I will never forget
You were there for me at the good times and the bad


My Game Boy, sing a song to me
A cute little thing, reminds me to dream, a lullaby
My Game Boy, tell me a tale
On a two bit palette, grays and greens to paint it, a handheld world
Track Name: Currzentuitus
Bow, to your new gods, mortals
Bow, until an other takes out place
Bow until we fade away, yes Fade it fell today, and light finally prevails
(Bow) but you owe it to us, righteous Currzentuitus, don't forget to pray

We were birthed to destroy the last, all is ours we dare to say
Currzentuitus, champions from dust, to endless night we bring the day


Servitude isn't so harsh from a god of light
Come along, challenge
What you fear will never rise again
All we ask for is your unwavering loyalty
Currzentuitus
Is the sound of sure infinity


Make any demands and you'll go back in to the darkness
We've shackled our hands to ensure this world's absolute bliss
How could you ask for more when there's no thing more to ask for
Your minds are too feeble to grasp what this has become

Think you can escape and you'll go back in to the darkness
Our sacrifice for you ensures your most absolute bliss
How could you ask for more when there's no thing more ask for
You're all hopeless, ensnared impossibility

Make any demands and you'll go back in to the darkness
We've shackled our hands to ensure this world's absolute bliss
How could you ask for more when there's no thing more to ask for
Your minds are too feeble to grasp what this has become

Think you can escape and you'll go back in to the darkness
Our sacrifice for you ensures your most absolute bliss
How could you ask for more when there's no thing more ask for
You're all hopeless, ensnared impossibility


Bow, to your new gods, mortals
Bow, until an other takes out place
Bow until we fade away, yes Fade it fell today, and light finally prevails
(Bow) but you owe it to us, righteous Currzentuitus, don't forget to pray

We were birthed to destroy the last, all is ours we dare to say
Currzentuitus, champions from dust, to endless night we bring the day


No hard feelings toward those who are in the wrong
Come along, repent
The darkness, confess does not suit you
All we ask for is your unwavering loyalty
Currzentuitus
Now should be a time to celebrate
Track Name: Covvem
I feel broken, how do I know
I wish to be, free from the flow
I say refrain, I say control
I say free me, how do I know

and I don't know what I'm saying
I don't know what to do
this game I'll keep playing
If I still can sing

No thing's sacred, no thing is owned
There's no master, there's no control
What a wicked, burning dark hole
I say yes now, then I say no

There can be no certainty
Don't know what to say
There can be no honesty
So this song I play

I feel broken, how do I know
I wish to be, free from the flow
I say refrain, I say control
I say free me, how do I know

and I don't know what I'm saying
I don't know what to do
this game I'll keep playing
If I still can sing

No thing's sacred, no thing is owned
There's no master, there's no control
What a wicked, burning dark hole
I say yes now, then I say no

There can be no certainty
Don't know what to say
There can be no honesty
So this song I play

and I sing


I say yes now, then I say no

and I don't know what I'm saying
I don't know what to do
this game I'll keep playing
If I still can sing

No thing's sacred, no thing is owned
There's no master, there's no control
What a wicked, burning dark hole
and I sing

Don't you wish you still belonged to
A world coded on old circuitry


The nostalgia demands that you
Wage a war for timeless heroes
But they won't remember you and
Any one else could handle those foes

Slaying dragons, leaping pit traps
that was your childhood's deepest stress
this is your last life, don't waste it
Go find a way to save your progress


Game raised, life tamed
Hopes lost, game saved


Games were your heart, your soul
Cartridges all that you wanted
The love of your life was simply to play

Games were your heart, your soul
Carts your road to satisfaction
Your purpose in life was the love of the game


The nostalgia demands that you
Wage a war for timeless heroes
But they won't remember you and
Any one else could handle those foes

Slaying dragons, leaping pit traps
that was your childhood's deepest stress
this is your last life, don't waste it
Go find a way to save your progress


Game raised, life tamed
Hopes lost, game saved


A taste of the fantasy
Where all mistakes are easily remedied
A glipmse of adventure true
Where all great deeds are acted out by you

Rise and fall with melody
To challenge the world, free from penalty
Every where you go there's fitting melody
But look around your life is not a screen
Track Name: Gotomix (Kin to Drudge)
I fought to be free from all the tyranny
I fight to be free from the mediocrity

Full of power, uncertainty
All this power can't save me
Full of power, uncertainty
All this power can't free me

Drive lost will gone so how can I feel this
The need to be again a champion of the cause


Have I finally lost
Ha ah have I finally lost

The beauty no longer inspires me
I guess that I have lived for too long
But I can't see my self going out with any thing less than a bang


I'm not altogether lost, I stive for
an adventure as epic as was
I'm not fully cast away, endeavor
for adventure so wonderful as was
Before

Madness, crude fix, any thing to cure this


What's left feels like quite a callous empty shell
What's right, can't tell, to follow Aufaust, might as well

Mighty courage, futility
All this knowledge won't help me
Mighty courage, futility
All this knowledge won't aid me

I must press on, determined to feel again
The need to be again a champion of the cause

I will not soon give up
I I I will not soon give up

The beauty no longer inspires me
But I will crusade to bring it back
I can't concieve this god going out with any thing less than a bang


I'm not altogether lost, I stive for
an adventure as epic as was
I'm not fully cast away, endeavor
for adventure so wonderful as was

I'm not altogether lost, I stive for
an adventure as epic as was
I'm not fully cast away, endeavor
for adventure so wonderful as was
Before
