about

The Shadow_Movement is upon us as The Anix's 6th full-length album will be unlocked on October 19, 2018. Featuring 15 tracks of future-rock, including highlights "This Machine," "Fight The Future," "Come Back Down," and "Interchanger," the album is set in a dystopian cyberpunk world, pulling from counter-culture, sci-fi and anime influences of a dark and desolate digitality based future.

Assuming multiple roles as composer, producer, and mixer, The Anix mastermind, Brandon Smith, combines influences from both rock and electronic music, crafting a powerful message with excellent musicianship and songwriting. Shadow_Movement combines influences from all of The Anix's previous works and pushes far into the future.

In the world of Shadow_Movement, the Interchanger stands alone – a rogue agent passing through the shadows of foreign lands with no connection and no allies, fighting against the dystopian future held by the oppressive hands of the ‘machines of industry and influence.’ The Anix rallies listeners with the anthemic message: "they can't stop us."

Hold onto nothing in the fragmented world of Shadow_Movement.

Track Name: Race To Nowhere
You’ll miss out in the end
Out in the end
Out in the end
Out in the end
Out in the end
Out in the end
Out in the end
Out in the end
Racing to nowhere
Racing to nowhere
Racing to nowhere
Racing to nowhere
I’m gonna crash through
I’m gonna crash through
I’m gonna crash through
I’m gonna crash through
I’m gonna crash through
I’m gonna crash through

I’m gonna crash through
Track Name: Fight The Future
I can show you the way down
Let you see it if you want to
There’s no other way around
To feel inside you

All I ever wanted
Was for you to come unglued
All I confronted
Never seemed to come true

I Can’t feel no more
It feels like Im walking in reverse
With No one behind me
I Can’t see no more
I’m blinded by what’s become of us
(so) I fight the future

Now I'm hanging on the wall
No knife to cut down
You can follow my call
But you’ll end up knocked down

I’ve seen it all before
Know my way way around
I can’t beat the score
With my feet pinned down

I fight the future...

I Can’t feel no more
It feels like Im walking in reverse
With No one behind me
I Can’t see no more
I’m blinded by what’s become of us
(so) I fight the future
Track Name: This Machine
Is this real life
Or simulation
Can’t hold on
For too long

Are we wrong
Or fixated
We go on
Reused

They can’t
Stop
Us
They can’t
Stop
Us
trying

I won’t let you take me under
Overload and discover
I Don’t believe in this machine
Controlled by you going nowhere

Is this real love
Or superstition
Are we programmed
To abuse

If we suspend ourself
And wait for darkness
Can we prolong
And seduce

They can’t
Stop
Us
They can’t
Stop
Us
trying

I won’t let you take me under
Overload and discover
I Don’t believe in this machine
Controlled by you going nowhere

I Don’t believe in this machine
I Don’t believe in this machine

They can’t
Stop
Us
They can’t
Stop
Us
Track Name: Open Fire
Open Fire
Come destroy my walls within
Down to the wire, crawling
Underneath my skin
Underneath my skin

It feels like I’m burning hopelessly
Crimson flames could be the end of me
Nowhere left to hide in all the madness
Feels like I’m last to stand in blackness

Amplifier
Come and blast away my tears
Deepest desire, blinding
Melt away my fears

Without warning
Destruction mastermind
Viciously burning, can’t see
Leave the smoke behind

It feels like I’m burning hopelessly
Crimson flames could be the end of me
Nowhere left to hide in all the madness
Feels like I’m last to stand in blackness

Open Fire...
Open Fire On Me...
Open Fire...

Open Fire On Me...
Track Name: Black Space
Suffer and hide it
Trapped in this nightmare
Trespass the unknown
There’s no going back so take me there

Hang on
To nothing
To nothing
I won’t
Let go
Never let you go
Let you go
Oh no
Oh no
Never let you go
Let you go
Hang on
To nothing
To nothing
I won’t

Darkness around me
Fragments left behind
Fighting what would be
Endless battle forever mine

In the Black Space
In the Black Space moving

Hang on
To nothing
To nothing
I won’t
Let go
Never let you go
Let you go
Oh no
Oh no
Never let you go
Let you go
Hang on
To nothing
To nothing
I won’t

Never gonna let you go
Never gonna let you go
I can’t let you go
Just can’t let you go
Track Name: Come Back Down
I won’t come down
Until your bulletproof

We float off ground
suspended interlude

Its all
The Same
Again
I see a hole in your reflection

We all
Betray
But still
Defend our cruel imagination

I never want to come back down
Don’t want to feel this low again
Don’t want to bring you down
Cus we can never go back again
This might
Feel
Like it’s wrong
We’ve lost it all
Don’t want to come back down
Cus now we’re hanging on by a thread

I see through the walls
And wonder away with you We never had rules
To force us to breakthrough

It’s all
The Same
Again
I see our visions unjustified

We all
Fall
The same
But find ourselves imprisoned inside

I never want to come back down
Don’t want to feel this low again
Don’t want to bring you down
Cus we can never go back again
This might
Feel
Like it’s wrong
We’ve lost it all
Don’t want to come back down
Cus now we’re hanging on by a thread

Something’s pulling us up in the air
Now I see the sky beneath us

I never want to come back down
Don’t want to feel this low again
Don’t want to bring you down
Cus we can never go back again
This might
Feel
Like it’s wrong
We’ve lost it all
Don’t want to come back down
Cus now we’re hanging on by a thread
Track Name: Ghost
Are you a ghost, a ghost?
Are you a ghost, a ghost?
Are you a ghost, a ghost?
Are you a ghost, a ghost?

I’ve watched a change inside you
Your carbon is starting to show through
You start to vanish in front of me
Are you a ghost, a ghost?

Ten thousand questions inside my head
My fascination begins to spread
You turn to vapor and fly away
Are you a ghost, a ghost?
Are you a ghost?

I’ve watched a change inside you
Your carbon is starting to show through
You start to vanish in front of me
Are you a ghost, a ghost?

Ten thousand questions inside my head
My fascination begins to spread
You turn to vapor and fly away
Are you a ghost, a ghost?
Are you a ghost?
Track Name: Overdrive
Daylight can’t hide
Melt like gold
And feel the insides burn
On Overdrive
Cinching blindfold
Nowhere else to turn

Every night I call in silence out your name
Just to survive
Every time I breathe I feel you light my flame
Our worlds collide
Nothing else can be as violent as this game
On overdrive
Every night I feel you dreaming just the same
Until we both arrive

This night’s alive
Don’t let us drown
And turn into dust
On Overdrive
We won’t slow down
Until we both combust

Every night I call in silence out your name
Just to survive
Every time I breathe I feel you light my flame
Our worlds collide
Nothing else can be as violent as this game
On overdrive
Every night I feel you dreaming just the same
Until we both arrive

On Overdrive
On Overdrive
On Overdrive
On Overdrive
On Overdrive
Track Name: Interchanger
Lonely stranger
Who are you?
Interchanger
Passing through
Loveless victim
Holding on
Insides twisted
All along

Can’t see
My reflection
Nothing Left
To recognize
Here I stand
No connection
A foreign place
With no allies

Lucid visions
cloud my mind
Violent collision
Intertwined
Imagination
Control the time
in this moment
You’re all mine

Can’t see
My reflection
Nothing Left
To recognize
Here I stand
No connection
A foreign place
With no allies
Here I stand
Interchanger
Passing through
Passing through

Interchanger
Passing through
Passing through
Passing through

Interchanger
Passing through
Passing through
Passing through

Here I stand
Interchanger
Passing through
Passing through
Track Name: Wasteland
Shattered dreams surround me
Searching in a haze, invisible
Mostly stories, fictional
Lost in the craze

I’ve been waiting for you in the night
That’s the only place I know
You can be found
This never ending
Constant descending chase for you
How can I survive the aftermath

Never ending chaos
Looking for a sign, Intoxicate
What truth is left, dissipate
Descend off line

Take me back
Take me back
Take me to the Wasteland
Take me back
Take me back
Take me to the Wasteland

I’ve been waiting for you in the night
That’s the only place I know
You can be found
This never ending
Constant descending chase for you
How can I survive the aftermath

Take me back
Take me back
Take me to the Wasteland
Take me back
Take me back
Take me to the Wasteland
Take me back
Take me back
Take me to the Wasteland
This never ending
Constant descending
Chase for you
This never ending
Constant descending
Chase for you
Track Name: Pendulum
Like a pendulum
Like a pendulum
Like a pendulum
Like a pendulum
Like a pendulum
Like a pendulum

Free until it stops

Like a pendulum
Free until it stops
Free until it stops
Until it stops

Like a pendulum
Free until it stops
Free until it stops
Until it stops
Track Name: Incomplete
In a blur you took me captive
Lost in a natural high
Like a spell I’m so enchanted
Right before you said goodbye

Forsaken
Only me
Unshaken
Underneath

Mistaken
Forget me
Awaken
Incomplete

Incomplete

Tunnel vision moving slowly
No end and no escape
Always running must be lonely
But something new is taking shape

Forsaken
Only me
Unshaken
Underneath

Mistaken
Forget me
Awaken
Incomplete

Incomplete
Incomplete
Incomplete
Incomplete
Incomplete
Track Name: Make Me Forget
Make me forget
Make
Make
Make
Make me forget
