Favorite songs: Six Feet Under - Amerika the Brutal



Amerika the Brutal is from Six Feet Under's 2003 album, Bringer of Blood. It's a nice, refreshing change from Six Feet Under's usual death/murder themed songs. It's an anti-war song, concerning the band's homeland and their policies. It's sort of ironic: most of Six Feet Under's lyrics are about disgusting murders, killing, psychopaths and whatnot, and then, suddenly, there's a song against war and violence. I wouldn't mind more Six Feet Under songs with themes like this because it works. Musically, death metal vocals combined with a less brutal rock sound is a perfect match. Amerika the Brutal is one of the best testaments of Six Feet Under's talent in doing this.
