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: It Begins at the End
Change of pace, don't fall behind
Do not worry, I'll deliver
Styles combine to form in to
Fascinating layered picture
(shh) Change mind don't stand in line
Waiting for music on repeat
Come on now enjoy your self
It's a dance beat, get on your feet

What begins can quickly change
Do not label, don't judge too soon
I portray a free mind's right
This melody, you're not immune
You can work to pick apart
And find fault with little details
One can learn to enjoy life
Every note the feeling entails

And here we go
Metal for you
I make well on my statement
Chuggachugga chug for you
And we we go
Brief interlude
Just a taste of things to come
chuggachugga chuggachugga chuggachugga chuggachugga


I say tease them structure
I say build to nil
I say cut with the keys


And since you asked for it
The true verses, they have returned
But don't be distracted
There is still much more to come


What builds up can fall apart
Expectations, they mean no thing
I deny the rusted mold
I will sing how I want to sing
Criticize it all you want
You're not alone but left behind
If you think you'd do it right
A fallacy you might soon find

And here we go
Metal for you
I make well on my statement
Chuggachugga chug for you
And we we go
Brief interlude
Just a taste of things to come
chuggachugga chuggachugga chuggachugga chuggachugga


I say bring the refrain
I say let it go
I say cut with the keys


Behold where one fell an other took it's place
One blue traded for an other
Begins a new chapter of the chip tune metal
And I am proud to present it to you
So strap your self in cause it's a wild one
Untamed but inspired to shine
Absorb this new chapter of the chip tune metal


And since you asked for it
The true verses, they have returned
But don't be distracted
There is still much more to come


I say that was much fun
But quotes are not enough
I say cut with the keys

I say bring the refrain
I say let it go
I say cut with the keys


Behold where one fell an other took it's place
One blue traded for an other
Begins a new chapter of the chip tune metal
And I am proud to present it to you
So strap your self in cause it's a wild one
Untamed but inspired to shine
Absorb this new chapter of the chip tune metal

Track Name: Chomp!
Going strong, admit you're in the wrong then
force the bastards to take it
Fight to stay alive, give in or survive
You can't compromise to make it

Hit them fuckers hard, show you're in charge
Come on, there's no time to fake it
Get your groove on, get your groove on
sink your teeth in to this


Dance metal drive
I feel so alive
Chomp that dance beat and
Kick out your feet

No time to think
Respond in a blink
Flash your glowing eyes
Discard the disguise


Hit them fuckers hard, show you're in charge
Come on, there's no time to fake it
But groove, you play it cool, dance like a fool
The beat, don't be afraid to brake it

Going strong, admit you're in the wrong then
force the bastards to take it
Get your groove on, get your groove on
sink your teeth in to this


Dance metal drive
I feel so alive
Chomp that dance beat and
Kick out your feet

No time to think
Respond in a blink
Flash your glowing eyes
Discard the disguise

Dance metal drive
I feel so alive
Chomp that dance beat and
Kick out your feet

No time to think
Respond in a blink
Flash your glowing eyes
Discard the disguise
Track Name: Some Thing Simple

Track Name: Battle with Vovvelov Kovutorch
Welcome to a wasted land
Where monsters and demons do stand
At every turn, take no demand
All bow to one wizard's command

You have seen this wizard before
He was the one who crossed you in town long ago
Since he has found a secret power
Now he rules your world, and you stand alone


Last time in which you fought he had escaped you
Next time the wizard won't fall easily
You must recruit a band of worthy fighters
Before you enter his great dark fortress


Now you are a party
skills all complement each other
Go take back the people's land

Vovvelov Kovutorch
is patiently waiting
He anticipates crossing you again


Kovutorch cast a spell but you were ready
Your knight was stricken down, but soon revived
Vovvelov had three forms but you were prepared
And then you beat the clock escaped his lair


Now it's time to rejoice
Darkness turned to light again
You are the heroes of the land

Vovvelov Kovutorch
Has finally fallen
None shall fear the dark wizard's name again

Yes, yes, again!

Now it's time to rejoice
Darkness turned to light again
You are the heroes of the land

Vovvelov Kovutorch
Has finally fallen
None shall fear the dark wizard's name again

All over the world
Repressed people are free now
And they celebrate your victory

Laughter fills the air
All dance, dance to your honor
To commend your power so fiery

Now dismiss your party
Four that complement each other
Say good bye to your dear friends

Legends will be told
Until these days are old
You pray to one day see all of them again
Track Name: Union
Music was the first passion we shared
The Zilbot and I
But no one truly shared the vision of our sound
A despicable crime
When we met the others just after
Their long quest was done
Musical calibration
It's the grandest union


Azil plays a really mean lead
Jinzin pounds out a thick bass line
Tutter keeps us all in the moment
With a hard beat
Bourac tears up with the rhythm
Caelsic gives it spice and some flair
I drive tunes with some lovely keys


Bourac and the others never dreamed
Here they'd play anthems
The first mem jumpers or gods of Universe
But just look how far they've come
Music was just a way to pass through
Endless duration
But now they share our vision
It's the grandest union


Azil plays a really mean lead
Jinzin pounds out a thick bass line
Tutter keeps us all in the moment
With a hard beat
Bourac tears up with the rhythm
Caelsic gives it spice and some flair
I drive tunes with some lovely keys


It's some thing greatly unique
Like this cute little beat
We are filled with wonderful joy
When we all play
It's such a lovely feeling
When our instruments sing
And it matters not if we
Are ever heard

It's some thing greatly unique
Like this cute little beat
We are filled with wonderful joy
When we all play
It's such a lovely feeling
When our instruments sing
And it matters not if we
Are ever heard

Our own company is enough


And I know not every one will understand

One can hate our timbres
And one can despise our melodies
It doesn't matter much because
We do this for our se-elves fi-irst

Music is the thread of our bond
Track Name: Sax in the Dark
One winter day he came to me
And when he played I almost lost it
He came with no food, no weapons, just a
Silver saxophone across his back
His song restored our hearts once again
Took our minds off of the darkness
The horrors out side seemed to disappear
When he played for us that special tune

When the storm came he fought
Low on rations he starved
For the children he played
A magic tune

The saxophone man, he is gone now
But what he played went some thing like this

Through the dark
Showed no fear
Played away
All our fears

The mysterious saxophone player
Was a kind and gentle man
Though jealousy came from the others
He was accepted in the end
An honest man generous to all
But what I recall most was the tune
Now that there is light again
I wish for no thing more than to thank him

When the storm came he fought
More food for us he caught
For the children he played
A magic tune

The saxophone man, he is gone now
But what he played went some thing like this

Through the dark
Showed no fear
Played away
All our fears
Track Name: Bing
A rush of emotion in here
I can not believe what I hear
I want to feel like this for long
I want life to become this song

I love the rise and rush of relief
I'll take the chill and pains of deceit
As long as I can live for ever
As long as I can live for ever


Desires all around us
I want it all-all right now
Patience I can afford
Just as long as I have the know how

Love and life are waiting
I want it all right now
I can't get caught in mundane
Or I will forget how


There is that great feeling again
A sound much like the best of friends
A great thing as this should be shared
But if it's just mine I don't care

I love the novelty of new love
I'll take foolish orders from above
As long as I can live for ever
As long as I can live for ever


Desires all around us
I want it all-all right now
Patience I can afford
Just as long as I have the know how


The road to all of life's great treasures is
Guarded by many demons of slavery
To get all of what I want and even more
I'll need to fly (over the road)


Desires all around us
I want it all-all right now
Patience I can afford
Just as long as I have the know how

Love and life are waiting
I want it all right now
I can't get caught in mundane
Or I will forget how
Track Name: Wonderland
To escape this
Is to reach bliss
My mind holds all the keys to the locks
On proper stimulation
Divine, endless emotion needless of presedence


It seems reality gave birth to the dream
What if a dream spawned our reality
I know the paradox, what which concerns this
There must be a physical to the metaphysical

Regardless of the philosophy behind this
I await the night for a true release
I know the paradox, what which concerns this
What good is a life spent waiting


The world out side is
Only a shell for out feelings
Others around us
sharing it is a blessing
The world within us
Is where we can see our true selves
And all faults can erase within the realm of our dreamscape


I just want to spend all my nights in wonderland
Conversely I just want to dream all my days away
The physical world it really wasn't meant for me
I knew it right from the start I want to dream all my days away


To escape this
Is to reach bliss
My mind holds all the keys to the locks
On proper stimulation
Divine, endless emotion needless of presedence


If this is nothing but a metaphysical space
What does that say about our postulates
If the Universe is compelled by impulses
What is pulling the strings

And why is this world not like the world of my own mind
Why can't I fly out side of my own mind
Why is the dream within the dream so un stable so
Untangled by all these relentless rules


It seems reality gave birth to the dream
What if a dream spawned our reality
I know the paradox, what which concerns this
There must be a physical to the metaphysical

Regardless of the philosophy behind this
I await the night for a true release
I know the paradox, what which concerns this
What good is a life spent waiting


I just want to spend all my nights in wonderland
Conversely I just want to dream all my days away
The physical world it really wasn't meant for me
I knew it right from the start I want to dream all my days away


To escape this
Is to reach bliss
My mind holds all the keys to the locks
On proper stimulation
Divine, endless emotion needless of presedence


Emotion beckons release
Creativity subsists in all of us
But a timeless tradition of conformity
Starves it
Curbs it

I wait for
the night to be reborn again
in to a world so free of inequity
Feed the dream
Feed it


It seems reality just won't back down
But there's no need to fight it cause the dream can not die
I know the rules of it, holding us down
But there is always more time for relief

Regardless of what we want to be
In the dream we can be all of we want to be
I know the paradox, bending our hope to break
But all of our hope shall remain


I just want to spend all my nights in wonderland
Conversely I just want to dream all my days away
The physical world it really wasn't meant for me
I knew it right from the start I want to dream all my days away
Track Name: Zotohla
The old waste land was a magical place
Full of mystery
There's some thing lost to it now
that denizens know what to believe

Empires rose and empires toppled
Unbound by the gods
It's sad that knowledge tears down
The wonder that inspires us

Adventure was endless every
Oasis held its charm
The desert was always changing
Wandering men shouldn't be alarmed

A different sense that we don't have any more
Called them out to stride
Across endless waste land called Zohtola
In the language of the gods


Zotohla, what an adventure
Ruins to explore
And countless treasures to claim as yours
Destiny free from feudal lords

Zotohla, what an adventure
Ruins to explore
And countless treasures to claim as yours
Destiny free from feudal lords

Zotohla, what an adventure
Ruins to explore
And countless treasures to claim as yours
Destiny free from feudal lords

The old waste land was a calling to all
To begin their life
Those who played it safely had
No handle, no edge to their dull knife

Freedom was inborn in to all
Master needs no slaves
Greed was their only motive
That can't control how one behaved

The spoils of Zotohla were plenty
Novelties were abound
The burnt users' ignorance
Protected them from reasons then unfound

A different sense that we don't have any more
Called them out to stride
Across endless waste land called Zohtola
In the language of the gods


Before we took the last gods' place
Before Aufaust's apprenticeship
Before wanderers chose from sides
Before, before
Before Universe showed her self
Before Ruger was even born
Before the human side was found
Before, before

What we long for we don't need
Ancient Earth societies
History can be relived
All memories are pensive

There was an age when the only world of magic
was the burnt side of Earth
Every life was an adventure
And there was no conventional history to repeat
Innocense in the present moment
Lives were on the line
Purpose was made each time for the first time

Requiem for the old waste land

Before we took the last gods' place
Before Aufaust's apprenticeship
Before wanderers chose from sides
Before, before
Before Universe showed her self
Before Ruger was even born
Before the human side was found
Before, before


Zotohla, what an adventure
Ruins to explore
And countless treasures to claim as yours
Destiny free from feudal lords

Zotohla, what an adventure
Ruins to explore
And countless treasures to claim as yours
Destiny free from feudal lords
