WHAT an epic song. Whoa. It's one of those songs I can't touch without putting way too many throws tricks in, haha. By far the most air I've ever gotten out of a throw, you might even see the disbelief on my face as i catch it :)
I've read places where people have labelled this song as anti-Christian, referring to the lyrics "To the leader, the pariah, the victim, the messiah: This is war". Most of you guys know what I believe and what my convictions are, so I would never do a song if I believed the message to be anti-Christian, or pretty much anti any religion. The way I interpret the song (and that specific line) is a warning to anybody reducing the relationship we can have with God to just another religion, a warning to the false prophets, hypocrites: that THIS IS WAR. And that's something I can wholeheartedly agree with.
Just as a sidenote (for the audio engineers and mixer who might be wondering) NO replacement or triggering was done in this mix. Every single stroke you hear was just eq'd, mixed, and compressed; I didn't layer or trigger or replace anything.
This was the last song in the last setlist of this series' recording, and ultimately the last song I recorded in the church in Bloemfontein where it all started in 2006.
