RETURN OF THE ANCIENT SWORD

Mi ʋu agboa loo kalɛawo,
Agbadza tomevio be mi ʋu agbo loo kalɛawo
Mi ʋu agboa ne mia yi ɖe Dahomey.
Mi ʋu agboa loo kalɛawo,
Agbadza tomevio be mi ʋu agbo loo kalɛawo
Mi ʋu agboa ne mia yi ɖe Dahomey.
(Warrior chant: open the gate to the warriors so that
they can go home)

Here I am... Looking at what you have done
Congratulations, you've killed bare-handed children but...
It's time to face this, it's time to face this, it's time to
face me, it’s time to face me!!

IF!
YOU!
WANT!
BLOOD!

Ati aɖe bi dzo, agbetɔwo be yoatsi dzo ma lo
Adze ye, edzi ye ɖegbe!
Ati aɖe bi dzo, agbetɔwo be yoatsi dzo ma lo
Adze ye, edzi ye ɖegbe!
(A tree is burning. Humans try to put out the fire
but they can't cause that fire came from Thunder.)

Mi ʋu agboa loo kalɛawo,
Agbadza tomevio be mi ʋu agbo loo kalɛawo
Mi ʋu agboa ne mia yi ɖe Dahomey.

Earth is thirsty she really needs to drink
Earth is hungry she really needs to eat
But she’s fed up with the flesh and blood of those you kill
All the cries and pain of these souls she feels
Now I’ve got the sword of the ancient times
Made up of lava and the blood of my forefathers
Gaia’s blown the veil of fear off my eyes
Now I hear the calling. No I cannot deny.
Walking the divine devil by my side I’m coming for you
The silence you hear is nothing but the calm
before the storm
Because God left earth leaving me the seven cups
Yo walls are closing in chaley ndokousou a tchi

Kite'm ale, kite'm ale, kite'm ale nan Ginen
Kite'm ale, kite'm ale, wooooooy
(Koupe tèt, boulè kay)

IF!
YOU!
WANT!
BLOOD!

Ati aɖe bi dzo, agbetɔwo be yoatsi dzo ma lo
Adze ye, edzi ye ɖegbe!
Ati aɖe bi dzo, agbetɔwo be yoatsi dzo ma lo
Adze ye, edzi ye ɖegbe!
Ati aɖe bi dzo, agbetɔwo be yoatsi dzo ma lo
Adze ye, edzi ye ɖegbe!
Ati aɖe bi dzo, agbetɔwo be yoatsi dzo ma lo
Adze ye, edzi ye ɖegbe!

about

ARKA'N

The band’s originality stems from their music, “Asrafo-core” which is a fusion of hard rock/metal and African mystic and warrior music.
Since 2010, ARKA’N has paved its way on the Togolese music scene as an impressive hard rock metal band which creates, records and performs its own songs deriving their particular sound from the intense African character of their compositions.
