For Red Cain’s next single “ZERO” from our upcoming album “Kindred”, we travel to ancient Egypt – dry, scorched, old as time, built on top of dead empires; littered with secrets and the devoured remains of hundreds of gods. And it is one of these that speaks to you now; the vampire god, the god of death Osiris – and his human vessel, the seeker of forbidden knowledge that may be, in the grand stillness of the desert, ultimately equal to nothing.

Seek – and you shall find; create – and you will be remembered; perish – and be forgotten. So goes the mantra of the mighty and the hope of the weak. So goes the endless cascade toward ZERO.


As light begins to crawl
Ebbing slowly
Time will try to pull me down
Into myself

Eviscerate this pain
Just for a moment!
And say

“Death waits for no one,
So let’s set the world on fire”
Fire in your hands

Winter has come and the white is your eyes
Red are the skies, secret your name
I’ll die to be you in the blink of an eye
Sell me your promise of grace

Bridge the gap, cold as ice
I know I am not enough
Inject your virus into me
I’m not the man I used to know

Taste my blood, bring me out
Lay me cold onto their waiting arms
Give me life, let me breathe
Carmine phantom flying free!

And I finally see clear
As I’m burning up inside
I’m the firstborn of Osiris
Twisted, hungry, and alive!

When I died, you’ve forgotten
What it means to wield the sword
But I’ll kill for you, my lover
In this world, this dying world

Can this really be freedom
In this strict paradise
Close your eyes for one moment
Death’s facade cast aside
Count your blessings in hate!

And you’ll feel like a king
When you awaken
And the world goes around
And you’ll fake it
And this fire in your blood
This is god now
This is rock n’ roll

Though you stood in the Sun
You’re vacant
To the sands of time, you’re zero
I can see through your eyes
Only corpses
All in blood & gold!
