Red Star Pt. 1 Waking up in crimson glow Vultures gathering on the ridge Wondering what’s this place become Shadows swallowing the sky Arid dunes give way to jagged stone Embers quivering in the mist Burning flames dance across the sand Blood and ashes on your lips Sitting on an ivory throne An iron hand glares down with lust The fettered masses cry for gentle hands Silence echoes from the sky Red Star Pt. 2 Built with the backs of the destitute The monolith stands wicked and red Its cold black eyes gaze down shrouded in obsidian Reaping the blood of the innocent The obelisk demands a sacrifice The times come for the shackled ones To bring the tower, down down down It’s getting late for the demagogues Dispensing misery to the populous Bellowing screams shout enough is enough No more blood for the opulent Damnation to the citadel Nothing to lose but the weight of the chains Burn the castle, down down down
2.
Here a star falls down Drifting slowly to the ground Calloused fingers stained with rust Heavy with ash and dust Evening sky looks down Shadows crawling to the ground Weary fingers worn to the bone Harrowed by distant throne Marching over the barren fields Bound by shackles of iron and steel No salvation for wandering eyes Toiling on the line Withering on the vine Here a star falls down Drifting slowly into the ground Calloused fingers chained to the stone Praying for morning sun

Eta Carinae 08:01
Gazing to the emanating light Blinded by piercing crimson rays Comets raining by penetrating night Breaking through the darkening malaise Haunting smell of sulfur in the air Radiating through the crimson castle Gamma rays of light, blistering and white Shakes the granite chapel down to nothing Echoes ringing as the tower comes down Everything left has turned to dust Scattering flashes through the dead of the night A jubilant glow flows from your eye Viridian rays align Viridian rays align Shades of violet creeping over the sky Solar wind sweeps away the dust Shattering anchors under crumbling stone Beaming brightly from your eye Viridian rays align Viridian rays align
5.
Dead Star 03:57
Under a darkening sky A floundering albatross fluttering by Sullen and closing its eye Tumbling downward it falters and dies Solemnly fading to stone Dead star calling it home Bound to a withering star Burdened with anchors of feather and bone Dimming and wilting to gray Crumbling slowly and breaking away Solemnly fading to stone Dead star calling you home Eager and green, you stripped everything Cut to the bone, and left it to bleed Drowning in dust, you’re standing alone Wasting away, dying Dead Star calling me home
6.
Red Star Pt. 2 Built with the backs of the destitute The monolith stands wicked and red Its cold black eyes gaze down shrouded in obsidian Reaping the blood of the innocent The obelisk demands a sacrifice The times come for the shackled ones To bring the tower, down down down It’s getting late for the demagogues Dispensing misery to the populous Bellowing screams shout enough is enough No more blood for the opulent Damnation to the citadel Nothing to lose but the weight of the chains Burn the castle, down down down

about

King Buffalo Rochester, New York

“King Buffalo is a psychedelic trio in the classic format, whose expansive and thunderous music is a powerful concoction of heavy psych, blues, and stoner rock. Texturally rich and oozing with psychedelic goodness, yet honed and driving in the next blink of an eye. Their efforts coupled with their impressive live show, quickly gained them an international audience.” - Sludgelord ... more
