Curiosidades: Dave Mustaine y los cómics 1

Cualquiera al que le guste el Thrash Metal conocerá a un grupo estandarte de este estilo musical llamado Megadeth, quizás el grupo más popular de esta vertiente del Heavy Metal tan solo por debajo de Metallica y con una popularidad equiparable a otros conjuntos como Slayer y Anthrax.
En cambio un detalle que pasa bastante desapercibido para el aficionado medio, y es que el guitarrista-cantante-líder de esta banda también es un gran aficionado a los cómics, y para muestra un botón, aquí os dejo la letra de un corte perteneciente al disco Rust in Peace (1990), Holy Wars...The Punishment Due, canción dedicada a nuestro querido Punisher.

Holy Wars...The Punisment Due
Letra: Dave Mustaine

Brother will kill brother
Spilling blood across the land
Killing for religion
Something I don´t understand

Fools like me who cross the sea
And come to foreign lands
Ask the sheep for their beliefs
Do you kill on God´s command?

A country that´s divided
Surely will not stand
My past erased, no more disgrace
No foolish naive stand

The end is near, it´s crystal clear
Part of the master plan
Don´t look now to Israel
It might be your homeland
Holy wars

Up on my podium as the know it all scholar
Down in my seat of judgement gavels bang, uphold the law
Up on my soapbox, a leader out to change the world
Down in my pulpit as the holier than thou
could be messenger of God

Wage the war on organized crime
Sneak attacks, rappel down the rocks behind the lines
Some people risk to employ me, some people live to destroy me
Either way they die, they die

They killed my wife and my baby with hopes to enslave me
First mistake, last mistake
Paid by the alliance, to slay all the giants
Next mistake, no more mistakes

Fill the cracks in with judicial granite
Because I don´t say it, don´t mean I ain´t thinking it
Next thin you know, they´ll take my thoughts away
I know what I said now I must scream
Of the overdose and the lack of mercy killings

Mercy killings, mercy killings, killings, killings, killings
Next thing you know they´ll take my thoughts away
