Zack De La Rocha Releases New Song Online.
The new song is titled “March of Death” and is used to express De La Rocha’s views on the current U.S. war on Iraq. Not surprisingly he is against it.
De La Rocha recorded the song D.J. Shadow and has set up a special website at marchofdeath.com to distribute it.
Never short of political rhetoric, De La Rocha wrote in a diatribe that accompanies the song, "Without just cause or reason, without legal or moral justification, and without a thread of proof that Iraq directly threatens the security of the Unites States, the Bush administration has headed to war. As I am writing this, bombs are raining on the defenseless civilians in Baghdad in a continuation of a policy that has already taken one million innocent Iraqi people. People just like us who want democracy, but find themselves cornered by a dictator on one side and naked U.S. aggression on another, and the oil beneath their country for which it appears they are to be massacred."
It is not clear if this song will eventually make it onto De La Rocha’s solo debut album, which is expected to be released sometime this year.
