about

Red Razor presents their new single "Born in South America", a song that besides the traditional thrash metal that's usually their style, also brings some new influences like death metal, surf music and brazilian traditional rhythms.

The lyrics are about their continent's history and politics and it's inspired by Uruguayan author Eduardo Galeano, whose book "Open Veins of Latin America" tells the tale of five centuries of pillage and exploitation of the region.

The song will be included in the band's second full length, to be released next july.

lyrics

BORN IN SOUTH AMERICA

Five hundred years ago
We discovered that we were Indians
Our old rituals
Turned into sin and we were guilty for not wearing their clothes

Not allowed anymore
to worship the sun, the moon and the earth
Those who did not pledge allegiance to
their kings were burnt alive

Traded our silver and gold for their diseases
Tried to make us fall on our knees
Destroyed our nature and cut down our trees
We stood still, INCA MAPUCHE GUARANI

We were born in South America
We have native blood, we have Indian hearts
We were born in South America
To rebuild what has been torn apart

Oooooo, WE ARE BORN IN SOUTH AMERICA!

Working in the silver mines
Terrible conditions and derisive wage
Many lost their lives
Or were enslaved by oppressive regimes

Totalitarianism
supported by the US of A
Innocent people
Persecuted, battered and slain

Dictatorship and exploitation
Overruled all of our nations
Imperialist authority
Imposing freedom – hypocrisy

Media control and manipulation
Violent forms of colonization
History written in blood
Drowned heroes in a lake of mud

From the Andes to the Amazon
Desert mountains and wild lands
The world‘s biggest rain forest
All exploited by the conquerors

From Cape Horn to the Darien Gap
Waterfalls, rivers and lakes
Our resources have been robbed
By European failed monarchies
