Regarding "Raise The Sun", ANCIIENTS states: "'Raise The Sun' represents what we are all about as a band, musically and lyrically. It contains most, if not all, the elements that we look for in the kind of music we enjoy. It's heavy but melodic; this is how we like things to be. Our sound might be full of contrast and duality, but not for contrast's sake; rather always for the sake of the song. Lyrically, it's about an Egyptian myth, the 'Hymn To The Rising Sun' and a visualization of said myth. It's about walking the correct path and achieving a sort of awakening. 'Raise The Sun' is one of our favorites from the record, for sure."
