Meka Kyoto

For my first titillating Tuesday post, I wanted to focus on a gal I only recently discovered, Ms. Meka Kyoto. 

I love finding bands who have such a unique style that its difficult to describe or either classify. With their second EP release titled “The Shift”, Orlando-based, female-fronted art-metal band, Meka Nism are definitely in a category all their own. Heavy metal mixed with a tribal-meets-spiritual vibe as well as one visually explosive, theatrical fireball of a lead vocalist, one can only hope that this small collection of music is just a taste of what’s to come. Themes of focusing on your inner strength + finding the light in dark times are found throughout the EP but one stand-out song in particular has been on repeat in my car for the past 2 weeks.

“From Out of Nowhere” is a song about empowerment, finding your purpose and the fact that we are all a lot stronger then we think we are. It’s so easy to doubt + compare ourselves but when we push through those obstacles and realize our true potential, the sky is the limit for what we can accomplish. Being a gal who struggles with the comparison void on a daily basis, it’s nice to find someone as unique as Ms. Meka to bring me out of that funk. Even though the music is heavy and the growls of Ms. Meka’s are way past fierce + intense, the positivity that pours through her voice + flows throughout the song proves that heavy metal can indeed… be therapeutic.


HERE I STAND, RIGHT WHERE I BELONG
IN A WORLD THAT SEEMS VERY DANGEROUS
AND I KNOW I MIGHT NOT MAKE IT THROUGH
BUT I FEEL IT’S SOMETHING I MUST DO

STARE RIGHT DOWN ON THE INSIDE
FIND OUT WHAT’S YOUR TRUE PURPOSE
BRAVE ENOUGH TO GO BEYOND?
WHERE WILL WE STAND, WHAT WILL IT TAKE?

RUN INTO LIFE, RUN INTO TERROR,
RUN INTO FAILURE, FACE YOURSELF
WE ARE THE LIGHT, WE ARE THE VOICES,
WE ARE THE CHOICES THAT WE MAKE

WE ARE ONLY AS BRAVE
TO WILL EVERY BREATH WE TAKE                

BELIEVE, FROM OUT OF NOWHERE

RUN INTO LIFE, RUN INTO TERROR,
RUN INTO FAILURE, FACE YOURSELF
WE ARE THE LIGHT, WE ARE THE VOICES,
WE ARE THE CHOICES THAT WE MAKE

SUDDENLY, SUDDENLY I KNOW HOW
SUDDENLY, SUDDENLY I STEP OUT
SUDDENLY, SUDDENLY I TRUST MYSELF
SUDDENLY INVINCIBLE

WE ARE ONLY AS BRAVE
TO WILL EVERY BREATH WE TAKE

BELIEVE, LIGHT OUT OF NOTHING

‘CAUSE WE HAVE THE COURAGE TO TAKE THE UNKNOWN WAY…   
. . . AND AS TRUTH CARRIES ON YOU WILL FIND WITHIN YOURSELF

WE ARE THE ONES WHO WILL BE STRONG,
WE WILL WAIT FOR NO ONE ELSE

WE ARE THE CHOICES WE MAKE,
WE SHOUT THE VOICES THAT SPEAK

WE HAVE THE POWER TODAY
WE ARE THE ANSWER
