Besides the generally exceptional musicianship in most so-called "death metal", the other
thing I've always liked about that genre is that I find it quite emotionally uplifting. I may be
missing the point, but I don't think so. There's nothing like a song about being tortured
to death to make you realize you're not really having that bad of a day after all.
Unless, of course, your day is going badly because you're actually being tortured to death,
in which case the apparent insensitivity of the lyrics is probably the least of your worries.
This song was written around 1989 and should probably have been included on Backstory,
but it slipped my mind until after that CD was released, so I've put it on this CD instead.
Unfortunately, I've also decided that the graphic nature of the lyrics is inappropriate
for a public and otherwise family - friendly website, so I won't be posting them here.
