Former RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE singer ZACK DE LA ROCHA and his pal DJ SHADOW have made their objection the US led war against Iraq known by recording a song called ‘MARCH OF DEATH’.
The track has been made available for free download [url=]here, and is expected to appear de la Rocha’s debut solo album, due for release later this year.
In the song, de la Rocha rails against US President George W Bush’s decision to attempt to remove Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein by force: “Here it comes, the sound of terror from above / He flew his Texas twisted tongue / The poor lined up to kill in desert slums / For oil that burn beneath the desert sun.”
de la Rocha said in a statement: “Lies, sanctions, and cruise missiles have never created a free and just society. Only everyday people can do that, which is why I’m joining the millions worldwide who have stood up to oppose the Bush administration’s attempt to expand the US empire at the expense of human rights at home and abroad. In this spirit, I’m releasing this song for anyone who is willing to listen. I hope it not only makes us think, but also inspires us to act and raise our voices.”
DJ Shadow added: “As an American, my government’s actions give me cause for great concern. I’m proud to support Zack de la Rocha in giving a musical voice to that concern.”
‘March of Death’ comes on the heels of the online release of an anti-war song by the [a][/a] called ‘In A World Gone Mad’, which can be downloaded [url=] here..
