kinbari I discovered The Anix from a random cyberpunk playlist on Spotify. It saddens me how I never crossed paths with the band before they signed to FIXT, because Brandon has been making wonderful music for two decades.
Shadow_Movement is a perfect album to me and I never skip a track. The intense vocals and evocative lyrics inspire me to sing along, while the forceful electronic beats and guitar move my feet. It is the soundtrack to my life. Favorite track: Black Space.

Monarch1999 I was introduced to The Anix when Klayton first announced the New Artist, so I gave a listen and let me just say I have found my new favorite Artist! Favorite track: Overdrive.

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

This Machine 04:15
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

Open Fire 04:36
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...

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

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

Ghost 04:17
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?

Overdrive 04:30
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

Interchanger 04:53
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

Wasteland 04:51
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

Incomplete 03:05
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

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.
