KHIGH is a 3-piece L.A. based rock band in the vein of Velvet Revolver meet Megadeth with a touch of electronics. A tight rhythm section, catchy choruses, great vocals, and emotional melodies are the perfect recipe to create the distinctive and innovative sound of KHIGH.

Biography

Dubbed as one of the most innovative acts right from the debut album, KHIGH came to life in Los Angeles from the intuition of guitar virtuoso and singer Kris Khigh. The band immediately caught the interest of Power Play Records of NY that led to two releases: Wise Hedonist and Copylefted Rightovers.

The sound of the 3-piece can be considered the heir of different influences mainly the catchy melodies of Velvet Revolver, the technical precision of Megadeth and the aggressiveness of System of a Down with a touch of electronics.

Always developing its own style over the years the band kept challenging the technical skills of its members and an immense passion for the best musicians of all times coupled with a great response from their fans led KHIGH to play shows in North America and Europe. The addition of personal covers by Van Halen, The Cult and others has been the ultimate evidence of the live potential of KHIGH.

Lyrics

Change

Written By: Kris - KHIGH

Curtains up let’s start the story
Here it comes the show for you
Take the time to listen to me
We’re gonna start kickin’ your ass

We perform the brand new story
of ye old brave new world
Made of words, made of ash
Set on fire and back to mud
Stone by stone, word by word
Depicting God in mines of gold
Renewed each time, got used to it
Let’s praise the noise of the hollow voice
That answers whys with its golden trustful lies

This is time for a change
no regret for the sweet revenge

Shout out the rebel yell
Of a thought far from itself
A step ahead from what is cause
A step ahead from its effect
Tales of betrayed by fair betrayers
Betrayed by their betraying cause
Another day, another time
Evidence of a history lived again
With obsolete self esteem

Take the time to behold this story
Here it’s told of layered truths
Like a mouse inside a cage
First tries to escape then looks for food
No, no, no, no, no he doesn't start to doubt the doubt
He clings to his life and forgets his captive pride

This is time for a change
no regret for the sweet revenge

Lullaby For Mankind

Written By: Kris - KHIGH

In a cradle of love
The first breath through a misty route
From a pram to your views on your knees you go
On your feet you start mumbling of everything
That’s around, that’s inside of what is good and what is nice
You keep playing with your toys like an animal in its cage
Searching soon for company looking forward to listening to the

Lullaby for mankind the precious gift for the mind
Wrapped in silken clothes the nanny keeps singing her rhyme

Brought to a shiny field
You’re shown your first bloomy trees
You grow up eating fruits you’ve been brought you do
On your legs you keep talking of everything
That’s your school, that’s your job of what is friendship and what is love
You keep trusting in your ghosts the ones that last the ones that’ll fall
A nice prelude a bad omen looking forward to listening to the

Lullaby for mankind the precious gift for the mind
Wrapped in silken clothes the nanny keeps singing her rhyme
Lullaby for mankind the melody played by the time
Soft as silk its sound the lullaby deafens the crowd

Sweet symphony that enchants crowds
Led by a conductor with no face
Who keeps singing

Spent in vain your best days
You doubt of what your hopes have been about
Pictures gone of a pride faded now you see
In your bed you keep thinking of everything
That’s been you, that’s been sure of what is left of what’s your faults
You regret what you did not blaming time praying god
Dying a bit each day more looking forward to listening to the

Lullaby for mankind the precious gift for the mind
Wrapped in silken clothes the nanny keeps singing her rhyme
Lullaby for mankind the melody played by the time
Soft as silk its sound the lullaby deafens the crowd
Lullaby for mankind the precious gift for the mind
Wrapped in silken clothes the nanny keeps singing her rhyme
Lullaby for mankind the melody played by the time
Soft as silk its sound lullaby, lullaby

Wise Hedonist

Written By: Kris - KHIGH

This is the tale of a man who made
Truth his awareness
First he tried to see what's life
Day by day, learnt his way
But his surprise faded away

He won't care for what is right
He won't live by rules or plans
Hedonism will be his moral
Carpe diem fills his soul and mind

Discussing all he was taught
He got new visions
What he saw turned into confirms
One after one
Intuition marked the path
to a new expression
Cause effect, useless view
Just chosen ones will see more

Cutting like a knife
The gift of an unknown one
Unveils itself

He won't care for what is right
He won't live by rules or plans
Hedonism will be his moral
Carpe diem fills his soul and mind

Thus ends the story of this man
No one could understand
Daemon he was called by who he knew
No more fears, no mercy
Doubt everything, scare or be scared

He won't care for what is right
He won't live by rules or plans
Hedonism will be his moral
Carpe diem fills his soul and mind
