War, Politics, and Metal

Just when you thought the last rock musician had been bitten by Eddie Vedder and transformed into another spineless liberal zombie, along comes Veracitor. Go read this article over at Blabbermouth.net for a review of their new single - which you can also download - and some band member quotes:

"I wrote this song to counter the anti-war, hate-Bush propaganda that seems to have tainted the metal community. The song deals with two fronts of opposition to Bush and the war in Iraq, but could be applied to any president or any war."

I'm off to the hospital soon to see how Mom is doing. You guys think good thoughts and enjoy some loud music that doesn't make you want to strangle the artist.
