Scourge Records re-releases BLOOD OF THE PATRIOTS as a video from DOWN FACTOR ’s album MURDER THE WORLD .
George Anderson, creator/writer of FROM HELL , re-releases this political song from his past band for the corruption of the politics in America has reached a fevered pitch. It beckons for this re-release. Originally written about the American politics of 2005, the message of the song is still a message for today. This video has taken into context today’s politics and merged them easily with the past for little has changed.
“I created FROM HELL to stay out of politics, because I hate it. But, right now, I simply cannot stand by and say nothing while the politics of this nation destroy this once great country. I wrote these lyrics with the corruption of the Iraq War and the Bush Administration’s egregious lie about Weapons of Mass Destruction and the 9/11 attacks on The World Trade Towers in mind. While some of the players have changed, the lies and the power grab of conservatives, who have altered the face of the Republican party, has not.” – George Anderson
“The video for BLOOD OF THE PATRIOTS is mostly a lyric video with scant old live footage laid on top. It delivers a message about the insidious endeavors of the conservatives in office seeking power at the expense and lives of the American people. It is very much anti-Trump and urges people to vote him out of office while we still can. While too many people focus on the division within our people, they mollify or fail to see the criminal acts within our government that threatens the freedoms of millions of Americans to further their agenda. The lack of integrity of the Senate has failed to convict the president, who WAS impeached and the people who support him fail to see how this undermines our system of checks and balances within our government and undermines our democracy.” – George Anderson
It is the follow up release to the band’s previous album PURE . Juan Urteaga was the go to Metal Engineer in the bay area. And still maintains that status today.
