I love how this starts with the single notes that almost sound like a violin. And then…bam right into the song full force. With bass and guitar and drums blasting. And Zach De La Rocha’s voice comes in and can match all the instruments in intensity. I am not sure how he does it but he is pretty amazing all on his own.
Rage is the best at angry rock music but they aren’t unfocused or sloppy with their music. I love the different guitar and bass sounds. It doesn’t even sound like individual instruments to me really its like a force hitting you in the chest but in the best way possible. They are amazing musicians and amazing at getting point across with words that are precise and colorful.
Weapons not food, not homes, not shoes
Not need, just feed the war cannibal animal
I walk tha corner to the rubble that used to be a library
Linin’ to the mind cemetery now
What we don’t know keeps the contracts alive an movin’
They don’t gotta burn the books they just remove ’em
While arms warehouses fill as quick as tha cells
They Rally round the family! With a pocket full of shells!
Perfect music for a day your dealing with a lot of frustration.
