  • Nick from Cairns, AustraliaI love this song and every other from the wrath album. A great way to fire up the album after the 1st slow (but not bad) instrumental song that starts the album. Ya, i have to admit, those are the funniest but weirdest verse line i have seen of lamb of god. I mean, "A sacred cash cow with sickly tits, dripping temptation for hypocrites", WTF? lol
