TheDandyMan's Song of the Week #1

I've been much less active on this site recently due to my exams getting closer but I don't want to completely forget about all you folks here so I thought a good way to make sure that I stay involved in the community is by sharing a song that I like with you weekly. There's no limit to what kind of tunes I'll share, as long as I enjoy it then it has the potential to be one of my songs of the week.

Tomahawk - God Hates a Coward

Mike Patton is, in my view, one of the greatest living rockstars and, although I had enjoyed some of Faith No More's albums before, it was the release of Sol Invictus that caused me to explore a bit of his less-publicised work. His bands like Mr. Bungle and Fantômas have their good tracks but the song that is standing out to me the most at the moment is God Hates a Coward. The bass, played by Kevin Rutmanis from the Melvins, provides a powerful backing for Mike's violent and distorted vocals and guitarist Duane Dension from The Jesus Lizard adds to the sound nicely. I've heard a number of different interpretations for what the lyrics mean, some say that they are the outlook of an abusive father, which I personally prefer the idea of, while others say they describe the view of some kind of group like the Illuminati but either way the song get across its aggression very well and the only thing I would want to change about it is its length, I could listen to this shizzle for way longer than 2 minutes and 40 seconds.
