Animal is a hard-rock power trio formed in Austin by two ex-High Watt Crucifixers' alumni, singer/guitarist Derek Einkauf and drummer Chris Alaniz, also formerly of punk legends AMEN. Powerhouse bassist Mike Sellman from Lions join them on their crusade to save rock n' roll.

Biography

Animal is a larger than life, modern classic rock n' roll band, swiftly kindling a generous buzz in Austin with their massively heavy, 70's laden vibe. Thick and powerful guitar tones emanate from wall to wall stacks of vintage amplifiers and thunderous, lumbering drums rattle your equilibrium into submission. This slightly southern and groove oriented brew equals an explosive, mildly psychadelic and louder than hell live show.

A product of three seasoned Austin veterans, Animal is fronted by ex-High Watt Crucifixers' bassist Derek Einkauf, this time around on vocals and guitar, bassist Mike Sellman from Austin stoner-rock icons Lions, and drummer Chris Alaniz, also formerly of High Watt Crucifixers and ex-touring member of punk-metal legends AMEN.

Their exciting 4-song EP is out now, all over Austin and is partnered with an assortment of high quality merchandise that is always available completely for free. In early 2012, Animal will be realeasing their debut full length album, which promises to be an epic reminder of the lost art of pure and uncompromising rock and roll.

Lyrics

International

Written By: Animal

I'm the man that nations fear
But my name you'll never hear
It's nice to be a billionaire
A 10 figure love affair
And when money won't cure the greed
the blood is what I need

As the world sets fire I will watch it burn
I'll provide the flame
I will fund the conflict
It's how I play the game

Ruins of my glory
Hallow be my name
If you wanted a savior
I'll take your soul for trade

As the world sets fire I will watch it burn
I'll provide the flame
I will fund the conflict
It's how I play the game

If the love of money is the root of it
Then I love money the most
When I'm done with the world I'll buy another one
There's nothing I cannot afford
No there's nothing I cannot afford
Nothin' I cannot afford
No there's nothing I cannot afford

All for me and none for you
You know it's nothing new
What did you think that you were gonna get?
Other than another cent?
Yeah other than another cent
None other than another cent
None other than another cent

Dehuman Eyes

Written By: Animal

Though I once was blinded I can see
Had me hypnotized on my TV
Lie after Lie
The only thing they wanna televise
Slowly--- Dehumanized

The more we see, the less we feel
When we see the killing fields
From afar, on a screen
That's asking us to believe

Now we're stuck inside of a machine
That was created by the sycophants
Tearing us apart from in between
We're plugging into an electric enemy

Dehumanize our minds to make us empty
Dehumanize our spirit for the taking

Don't get lost, inside the noise
It digs in underneath the skin

Full Moon Rises

Written By: Animal

On this night a full moon rises
Run and hide and cry for mother
Beast within will wake from his slumber
Then the hunger comes again
Let the witching hour begin

Curse your maker--- as you may
It won't do you no good anyway
Tonight a full moon rises

Moonlight--- So bright
Watching the feast from above
Hunting--- Unseen
Lock the doors and stay within

On this night a full moon rises
Run and hide and cry for mother
Beast within will wake from his slumber
Then the hunger comes again
Let the witching hour begin

Curse your maker--- as you may
It won't do you no good anyway

Tonight a full moon rises

Blood Brothers

Written By: Animal

In my mind I've walked a mile
For every word
of what I'd say to you
To get you through your youth
But your time has come and gone
A piece of me with you
Piece be with you my brother
I'll see you when I'm dead

Thicker than blood
That runs through my veins
This memory of your name

Can you hear me?
Feel my words?
Farewell my friend
Till we meet again in the end

In my mind I've walked a mile
For every word
of what I'd say to you
To get you through your youth
But your time has come and gone
A piece of me with you
Piece be with you my brother
I'll see you when I'm dead

Thicker than blood
That runs through my veins
This memory of your name
