Capital punishment?

I honestly can't think of one. If I came across one (or more) at some point I honestly didn't pay attention to the lyrics.

Especially if it's a band singing a foreign language. I don't know if bands like Lifelover, Shining, Rammstein, etc. sing about capital punishment at any point in their songs.

The only two that comes to mind would be Ride the lightning - Metallica and Headcrusher - Megadeth. I don't usually pay attention to such lycal theme thought.

More interesting would be metal songs about abolishing capital punishment. Wonder what kind of freedom-hating liberal wingnut would come up with that.

I'm assuming one or two thrash bands have written about that. They always seem to be babbling about political shit.

I wonder what kind of thread will pop up next.

"Metal songs about wearing two different types of socks" seems like a safe bet.

I'd actually start that, but I just remembered that this forum has rules and stuff, so yeah.

White Cluster by Opeth was oddly the first that popped into my head...not necessarily a song about conventional capital punishment but lyrically I think it still qualifies.

I bet there are plenty of songs about being hanged. There's one on that shitty MDB album, For Lies I Sire. It has two good songs, My Body, A Funeral and Santuario Di Sangue. It's neither of them, so it has to be one of the rest. At least I think so. I'm sure there was a song about a boy who was waiting for his turn at the gallows for whatever reason.

Candelmass - at the gallows end is the track about waiting to be hung the next morning.

Would Davidian by MAchine Head count? It is about the Waco Siege and people killed by the police.

Ride the Lightening? Metallica is the only one I know that talks about it. Maybe others do and I just don't pay attention.

Kreator's Under The Guillotine, although it doesn't really discuss the morality of capital punishment or the thoughts of those whoa re to be killed; it's just about how awesome Guillotines are.

Oh yeah, that too. But it's not the track I had in mind. Maybe I'm confusing several songs, but I'm sure the one I think is about hanging is on one of the latest MDB albums. Might not be about hanging at all, though. I'll try to look it up tomorrow.

Municipal Waste - Mental Shock. I'm surprised this hasn't already been mentioned. Just look at the lyrics, and its pretty obvious what its about

Hmm I can't seem to think of any at this moment apart from Grave Digger - Killing Time (needs to be interpreted in a certain way though).

I'm pretty sure there's a 80s-early 90s era Megadeth song i'm missing here, just not sure which one exactly (maybe Holy Wars?)
