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: Driven to Vengeance
The red girl with the flaming eyes wanted me dead
That fierce girl with the crimson knife wanted my head
Despite childhood history she listened to final mirror
As his pawn his plans for me they grew vastly clearer

Her old reason was stripped from her
She bowed down to her hate, she was left
Driven to Vengeance

The red girl with the flaming eyes tried to take me down
That fierce girl with the crimson knife, her vengeance she crowned
No thing that I did say could persuade her to think back
The Harpist had forged a weapon from her, all moves attacks

Her old reason was stripped from her
She bowed down to her hate, she was left
Driven to Vengeance

Her old reason was stripped from her
She bowed down to her hate, she was left
Driven to Vengeance
Track Name: With Your Head Up in the Clouds
Fake it if you need to, I will not judge you
Escape from it all, I can not blame you
Freedom comes through being free, what cost can there be due
I don't want to face up, so I plan to live on through you

I don't want to give up, so I'll deny that I have
Failure is not acceptable, so a quick fix I will grab
I don't fight to live up, to the standards that I have
Failure does not exist, I fake what I have

You keep dreaming on now
With your head up in the clouds
fantasy is all you need to
Survive this life, get you through the moment

You keep dreaming on now
With your head up in the clouds
fantasy is all you need to
Survive this life, get you through the moment

Pretend that you are some one you are not, Exaggerate all you have got
Drive an image that they will like, try to match what they have bought
Do not push it what is the need, with the choices that you have got
I don't force it not a chance, I push an Ideal that I am not

I don't strive to make of me, a professional any thing
Professionals- they don't exist, deny every thing

You keep dreaming on now
With your head up in the clouds
fantasy is all you need to
Survive this life, get you through the moment

You keep dreaming on now
With your head up in the clouds
fantasy is all you need to
Survive this life, get you through the moment

You keep dreaming on now
With your head up in the clouds
fantasy is all you need to
Survive this life, get you through the moment

You keep dreaming on now
With your head up in the clouds
fantasy is all you need to
Survive this life, get you through the moment

You keep dreaming on now
With your head up in the clouds
fantasy is all you need to
Survive this life, get you through the moment

Head up in the clouds
Track Name: Wiyinndfor
A lust for power, a freak for control
A sadist in any respect
Armor of silver on gold
Royalty, just as you would expect

Elegance is an obvious
She was beautiful and well composed
Her tragic mind makes it hard for us
To see her as either friend or foe

Silver and gold, bronzing in side

She was born on a world of VizilV
To a self destructive class
She believed to the hilt
That power could set her up from the rest

A tyrant, cut throat beast, consume
(A child searching for a home)
She must have it all, kill and take it all
(It is all she knows, we all want some thing)
No mercy, cut to see you bleed
(Full of passion, needs to see the light)
Kill to have it all, kill and take it all
(She just needs to learn, we all want some thing)

A chance for her surfaced
And she just had to have it
Possibility showed its face
and she simply had to grab it

Wiyinndfor Torto Auv

A chance for her surfaced
And she just had to have it
Possibility showed its face
and she simply had to grab it

With a dark demigod she fell in love
Because he could provide
They shared a common goal of
Bringing infinite fortune to their lives

A skilled warrior she became
But a soft spot was left in side
She was a cold killer she would claim
But her true feelings she would hide

Silver and gold, bronzing in side

In Secto she placed her trust
Thinking battle was a means to an end
But that was just the crust
The depth of it was not in her plan

A tyrant, cut throat beast consume
She must have it all, kill and take it all
No mercy, cut to see you bleed
Kill to have it all, kill and take it all
(We all want some thing)

A chance for her surfaced
And she just had to have it
Possibility showed its face
and she simply had to grab

A chance for her surfaced
And she just had to have it
Possibility showed its face
and she simply had to grab it

Wiyinndfor Torto Auv

A chance for her surfaced
And she just had to have it
Possibility showed its face
and she simply had to grab it
Track Name: Curb
Keep your mouth shut they say to me
Silent and mindless
Keep your ears shut when I speak to
You avoid the mind stress

Don't store it, you ignore it
You will regret these choices
See what we provide for you
We sell every thing we want you to want

They try to close my mind
Try to starve my head
Try to curb my
Very will to live
Try to deafen my ears
Try to blind my eyes
Try to curb
Every thing that I am

They try to close my mind
Try to starve my head
Try to curb my
Very will to live
Try to deafen my ears
Try to blind my eyes
Try to curb
Every thing that I am

Don't search for answers to questions
Hide in your shelter
Keep your eyes shut when they act don't
Know this, it's better

Don't waste your life on learning
You will regress as age comes
Hear babble without wisdom
They sell every thing, every thing

True life is hard to find
Redesign your in put
Put in force to your desires
Ignore their push to brain wash you

They try to close my mind
Try to starve my head
Try to curb my
Very will to live
Try to deafen my ears
Try to blind my eyes
Try to curb
Every thing that I am

They try to close my mind
Try to starve my head
Try to curb my
Very will to live
Try to deafen my ears
Try to blind my eyes
Try to curb
Every thing that I am

Don't care for their relief any way
Don't get caught in their distracting safety net
Don't fall for their escape- a trap
Forge your own path, feel another way

They try to close my mind
Try to starve my head
Try to curb my
Very will to live
Try to deafen my ears
Try to blind my eyes
Try to curb
Every thing that I am

They try to close my mind
Try to starve my head
Try to curb my
Very will to live
Try to deafen my ears
Try to blind my eyes
Try to curb
Every thing that I am

They try to close my mind
Try to starve my head
Try to curb my
Very will to live
Try to deafen my ears
Try to blind my eyes
Try to curb
Every thing that I am

They try to close my mind
Try to starve my head
Try to curb my
Very will to live
Try to deafen my ears
Try to blind my eyes
Try to curb
Every thing that I am
Track Name: Chapter Six: Live to Fight on an Other Day
Pride can be a danger to you
Haste is not the right thing to use
Your honor won't be tainted by
A choice to run and even hide
Battles come, and the battles go
But for you, safety you must know
Courage to out stand your pride
Is a desirable thing

In this moment you'll learn (To learn)
When to limit your self (Your self)
When to sharpen your mind in stead of your blade
Come run away

Run, run if you have to
Live, live too fight again

I see my self fleeing from battle
And I survive

Pride can be a menace to you
Don't be fooled, it can happen to
You and I, we and every one
It can wear till the task is done
Fights they come, and the fights they go
Moments to shine also, you know
Courage to out stand your pride
Is a desirable thing

From this event you'll see (You see)
The time is not to fight (Don't fight)
You must keep keen your sense in stead of reflex
Go speed away

Run, run if you have to
Live, live too fight again

Run, run if you have to
Live, live too fight again

I see my self fleeing from battle
And I survive

I see my self fleeing from battle
And I survive

When you close your eyes
What do you see (When you think of me)
A little girl
Or a big machine (Machina)

You should know
I'm not what I seem (When you think of me)
Discard your faith
And your beliefs (Machina)

I stand holding his voice in my hand
As an other world unfolds and presents great possibility
There is a ghost within this old machine
And I am unbound by the limits of all humanity

I know I am a mindless being
I do not comprehend the emotions that I push to portray
I am a soul of an ancient machine
bringing life to the unliving instruments all around me

Open your mind
Consider this (When you think of me)
This fragile girl
Is in the machine (Machina)

Don't you know
This is all a dream (When you think of me)
Cast aside your principles
Admit relief (Machina)

I stand holding his voice in my hand
As an other world unfolds and presents great possibility
There is a ghost within this old machine
And I am unbound by the limits of all humanity

I know I am a mindless being
I do not comprehend the emotions that I push to portray
I am a soul of an ancient machine
bringing life to the unliving instruments all around me

I stand holding his voice in my hand
As an other world unfolds and presents great possibility
There is a ghost within this old machine
And I am unbound by the limits of all humanity

I know I am a mindless being
I do not comprehend the emotions that I push to portray
I am a soul of an ancient machine
bringing life to the unliving instruments all around me

I stand holding his voice in my hand
As an other world unfolds and presents great possibility
There is a ghost within this old machine
And I am unbound by the limits of all humanity

He feels the drive
I feel no thing
He lives the dream
Flying with the machine

I lift you up
Come with me
I take you higher and higher
Come fly with me and dance to this

I stand holding his voice in my hand
As an other world unfolds and presents great possibility
There is a ghost within this old machine
And I am unbound by the limits of all humanity

I know I am a mindless being
I do not comprehend the emotions that I push to portray
I am a soul of an ancient machine
bringing life to the unliving instruments all around me

I stand holding his voice in my hand
As an other world unfolds and presents great possibility
There is a ghost within this old machine
And I am unbound by the limits of all humanity

I know I am a mindless being
I do not comprehend the emotions that I push to portray
I am a soul of an ancient machine
bringing life to the unliving instruments all around me
Track Name: Norxiox
At night my mind is discarded
In dream my mind is free from this
But conflict pursues me
Even in my safest place

Sub mind betrays me
I find an enemy
The dark darkness pulling the strings
Pulls me in to abyss

I bleed and still hurt in waking
Madness consumes, and continues to feed in day light

In to a dream I will collapse
And let my mind attack
I fight my self for the control
To it my strife gets never old

In to a dream I will collapse
And let my mind attack
I fight my self for the control
To it my strife gets never old

My friends, they fade so quickly
Trapped on the edge of dreams
My mind fails to acknowledge
What they mean to me
It twists their faces
Forces their hands
Locks them away from me
Ignores my demands

For those of you who never dream
Please understand my enemy
Those of you who never really dream
My enemy is me

Is inside

Life within the mind
Life within the mind

I love and laugh and do battle
Deep within my dream scape
It truly keeps me going
Even though it keeps me down inside

Dream god entraps me
I fight for stability
The dark, darkness bends all the beams
That hold together a great story

Some feelings fade from me
But others they haunt me still
I taught a girl to fly last night
But fly she will never again

Dark force constricts me
I push for sensibility
The dark, darkness twists every dream
That I wish to fight for

I bleed and still hurt in waking
Madness consumes, and continues to feed in day light

In to a dream I will collapse
And let my mind attack
I fight my self for the control
To it my strife gets never old

In to a dream I will collapse
And let my mind attack
I fight my self for the control
To it my strife gets never old

My friends, they fade so quickly
Trapped on the edge of dreams
My mind fails to acknowledge
What they mean to me
It twists their faces
Forces their hands
Locks them away from me
Ignores my demands

And though it fights back
Though it defies me
This darkness, my enemy
Is a part of me

Some times there is relief
Some times it stands down
So its worth it for those moments, precious
That are dream world renowned

I feel it in my mind
I feel it in my bones
I feel it all throughout
This is my home

I feel it in my mind
I feel it in my bones
I feel it all throughout
This is my home

I feel it in my mind
I feel it in my bones
I feel it all throughout
This is my home

I feel it in my mind
I feel it in my bones
I feel it all throughout
This is my home
Track Name: Yellow Horizon
Alice lived on a world
That was covered by machines
To her to see what was underneath
Was quite a treat

The sun was often hidden behind
Tall towering buildings
But its shine often did remind
Of past wonderful things

A year was a day to her
Centuries passed by like my months
Still she felt the yellow calm
That I have

Light from her tiny star
Could make her feel so warm
In such a cold world

Yellow horizon
Dawn of a new day
Many worlds have
Shared the yellow way

Worlds collide in my mind
I feel their emotions blend deep in side
What they feel is often what I feel
No experience can keep us apart

Alice was a manager, working for a corporate store
Climbed the ladder for the money so she could support her self
She attracted the broken and the insane
Madness all around, madness from within

Warmth of a star on a circling planet
Mood of a sunny day
Coming to terms with the horizon, the prospect
Experience lost to the Frame

Jale Kobbers was from
A much simpler world
Before its nature was known
Their sun understood

Field work was rewarded
With a relaxed, yellow feeling
The summer air was her fun
The sun set her tee vee screen

A walk through the woods was an adventure to her
Though enslaved, bound by soldiers
Still she kept her head up
To the horizon

Light from her dying star
Could make her feel so warm
In such a frightened world

Yellow horizon
Dawn of a new day
Many worlds have
Shared the yellow way

Jal Togsten came to town during war to protect
He had his soldiers build a wall
They drove the enemy out but became a new enemy
They bullied the people, the lord raped the women

Jale Kobbers was a farm girl, tended to the meat
When she killed Jal Togsten it triggered revolt
The guards quickly defeated, the town reclaimed
Jale Kobbers led them to prosper

Warmth of a star on a circling planet
Mood of a sunny day
Coming to terms with the horizon, the prospect
Experience lost to the Frame

Two different worlds, two different girls
One and the same, one and the same, The Stars Spark
A yellow life, a blue smog cloud
One and the same, by two different names

Fading Feeling, too bright to
See a fourteen right in front of me
Fourteen just off of thirteen
Just off of perfection

Horizons of balance promise us
A yellow peace

Yellow horizon
Dawn of a new day
Many worlds have
Shared the yellow way

Yellow horizon
Dawn of a new day
Many worlds have
Shared the yellow way

Peace, calm, mellow life, yellow
Warmth, light, pleasant life, yellow
Sun rise, sun to set, yellow
Smile, free, open fields, yellow

Yellow horizon
Dawn of a new day
Many worlds have
Shared the yellow way

Yellow horizon
Dawn of a new day
Many worlds have
Shared the yellow way

And if one has not felt the yellow
It has not really finished living yet
For the reds, blues, and grays need its compliments
Fill the spectrum, add yellow

If its world is devoid of sun light
I suggest it travels to find some
For the best taste of yellow is on the horizon
Of the fields of an quiet, open space
