Alice In Chains - The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here

Alice In Chains – The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here

This is a story about how people are manipulated by organized religion and media. Case in question: the way various religious cults try to explain away the existence of the dinosaurs – a fact of biological history which contradicts certain interpretations of the Bible (namely that the Earth is roughly 6000 years old).

What genre could be better suited for combating outrageous ignorance if not some compositional-diverse, well-produced, perfectly-balanced metal. This melody is a mental sword. Wield it proudly and enjoy its symmetric construction. There’s also a magnificent array of vocals, making this one of my favorite metal song ever. And that’s not all…

It is not often that I recommend seeing the video for a song, but this one is amazingly well made! Starting with the totally apathic employees seen “behind the scenes”, it delves into all the dirt that is shoved down our children’s throats and goes back to the same sad and disappointing view on the developed world, a place where apparently happy adventures are in fact the work of deranged individuals employed by conniving corporations. The video gets quite violent for a while, but it’s all with good reason and, I daresay, well-executed.

“Come to me, I’ll fill the hole
Why would I be lying
End fan, all planned out
Offering a wonderful
Peace of mind worth buying
Bow down last round up
I am wise and you don’t know
A cloud is my home
Only some get in
Got a ‘maginary friend
The devil put dinosaurs here
Jesus don’t like a queer
The devil put dinosaurs here
No problem with faith just fear”
