Metal Musicians React To Barack Obama Election Victory
History was made last night as the United States of America elected their first African-American President, Barack Hussein Obama. Over the past few months, musicians from all spectrums have been voicing their opinion over the historic race for presidency. Many of the same musicians have now voiced their opinion on the victory for the Democrats:
Sacred Reich frontman Phil Rind states: "It's over. The election has been decided. The American people have spoken loud and clear, and Barack Obama will be our next President. Many have waited eight long years for this day. We have suffered through two dissapointing and suspiscious elections. We have watched while Bush has made disasterous decisions, ruined the lives of millions of citizens, put our fighting men and women in harms way over a lie, and tarnished the image of America around the world.
"We have witnessed a historic moment when the spirit of the promise of America has been renewed. That Barack Hussien Obama was elected President of the United States is a testament to what is possible. That we had an opportunity to right our course, and that Americans overwhelmingly voted for change should bolster our hope for the future.
"We do not know what the fututre holds. There is a steep uphill battle to be fought to right the wrongs of our recent Presidential administration. But today we should be proud that a new spirit of hopefullness has replaced the cynicsm of our recent history. We should move forward together and write a new page in the ever changing landscape of Ameirica."
Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian posted the following brief message: "Today was a great day for America. Cheers my friends!!! Here's to a better world!"
