Abikyokan – Chrysopolis

Abikyokan – Chrysopolis

Recorded in Summer 2014 at Goatbabe, Kameido, Tokyo by Abikyokan.

Jacob Arntson – vocals, electronic synthesizer
Craig Exton – electric bass guitar
Grant McGaheran – electronic beats
Tatsumi Ochiai – electric guitar, artwork

Licinius said, to the men by his side,
“Don’t look at the banner’s bright eyes!
With the power of christ, he’s abandoned the gods, and plans to throw them aside.”
Constantine rode, his banner held strong, as javelins ripped his men apart.
The swinging of swords and the snapping of spears, with a hundred thousand men on a side.
With the empire healed, one man and one Rome, one god for the entire world.
Licinius fled with his wife and his child, in Thessaloniki they retired.
But Constantine’s men they killed father and son leaving Constantia all alone. And later he killed his own wife and child, is this a true apostle of god?
Jupiter, Mars, and Apollo must wait.


Abikyokan – Cleopatra  Recorded in the June 2014 at Goatbabe, Kameido, Tokyo by Abikyokan.

Jacob Arntson – lead vocals, lead synth, lead artwork.
Grant McGaheran – lead beats.
Tatsumi Ochiai – lead guitar, lead artwork.
Craig Exton – lead bass guitar.

Part I

Wrapped up in a carpet
Unravel her deepest charm
Caesar takes her right to him
to penetrate her deepest heart

So easy to blame a woman
society will eat itself
Weakening all their manhood
as incest will take its toll

Wrapped up in a battle
There’s fire on the open sea
Antony and Cleopatra
Escape to their suicide

So easy to blame a woman
Society can fuck itself
Masculine little jokers
as incest will take its toll

Part II

Hurry come to the river
the pleasure barge is here
Gilded birds and silver serpents
the writings on the deck

Hold the snake to breast
A fleeting type of life
Antony he smiles
in red and white he dies
Hold the snake to breast
A lovely suicide
The fangs dip in and kill
a lovely suicide

Hurry to the river
the snakes have come to feed
Silver birds and serpents
that’s really all you need

Hold the snake to breast
A fleeting type of life
Antony he smiles
in red and white he dies
Hold the snake to breast
a lovely suicide
the fangs dip in and kill
A lovely way to die
Hold the snake to breast
A deadly suicide
The fangs dip in and kill
a lovely way to die
Hold the snake breast
a bitter suicide
the fangs dip in and kill
A better way to die




Abikyokan – Diocletian

Recorded in the spring of 2014 at Goatbabe, Kameido, Tokyo by Abikyokan.

Jacob Arntson – lead vocals, lead synth, lead artwork. 
Grant McGaheran – lead beats, lead synth. 
Tatsumi Ochiai – lead guitar, lead additional artwork. 
Craig Exton – lead bass guitar. 


Cut the cow’s throat, the gods be appeased 
Scrying the future in organs and blood 
Diocletian, he’s killing the Christians 
Burning the churches and stamping out Christ 
Constantine watched, the blood and the horror 
Shaping the future, to become a man 
Diocletian, retiring from power 
He’s gardening peacefully beside the sea 

Jupiter, Mars, and Apollo will come back 
Jupiter, Mars and Apollo will come back 
JUPITER, MARS, and APOLLO will come back 
Jupiter, Mars, and Apollo will come back
