BandRockMetal

Honesty, strength and anger from the sons of the working class, Sunder throw down an intense live show that is as tough as they come.

Biography

Barren prairies.

Dark mountains.

Oceans of wheat playing out for hundreds of miles in all directions.

Cowboys, farmers and blue collar workers intermingling with separatist militias, white gangs and redneck drug runners. A landscape peppered with forgotten towns, farm house meth labs, and Indian reservations with near third world living conditions.

This is the modern American West.

This is the great state of Montana.

This is the rock band Sunder.

Like a force of nature rising from the ancient prairie, Sunder is a band of men brought together by hard work, furious musicianship and backcountry common sense. Formed from the grandsons of railroaders, lawmen and blue-collar workers, Sunder is a true American band unlike any other.

Sunder’s lyrics are a mix of violent images of the prairie and dark loneliness of the Rocky Mountains. Like Montana, Sunder write desperate songs filled with aggression, raw beauty, and truth, songs that are both a graphic depiction of a life on the edge and an escape from it.

With a mix of metal, punk and heavy rock, Sunder pound out songs with the rage and introspection of a small town existence. Honesty, strength and anger from the sons of the working class, Sunder throw down an intense live show that is as tough as they come, making
a last stand to proclaim that all is not well in the American West.

Lyrics

You Won't Take Me Alive

Written By: SUNDER

What I got you'll never get
Take it from me
Because your all just the same
Your men in suits peacekeeper troops
And your gonna pay
Cause this is my land and I live my way

Take all of my pain and sorrow
In my mouth it tastes bitter still
We're all gone tomorrow
It's my life, you're never breaking me

Collapse at night a human dog you better fight
They've come to take you away
Jack-booted troops in bio-suits
We're all gonna pay
They'll never make me their slave

Take all of my ire and worry
In my mouth it tastes bitter still
We're all gone tomorrow
It's my life, you're never breaking me

You won't take me alive
You won't take me alive
You won't take me alive
You'll never take me alive

Live your life
Know your rights
Stake your claim
Pay your price

It's my life you're never breaking me

Dirty

Written By: SUNDER

Her hair was red
And her eyes were dead
Down by the swimming hole
They say he killed his father
Just like my daughter
Alone and standing there in the currents of the water

And I'm dirty
I'm unclean
I'm wasted
The dirty water washed over me

My father was dirty
Bathing naked in the creek
And his sister she was just as pretty
With that bloody hand print on her cheek

And I'm dirty
I'm unclean
I'm wasted
The dirty water washed over me

Down by the cotton woods
Where evil runs into good
The river will run red
As long as she stays dead
They say he took more than her life
By the tip of the hunting knife
Down where she used to play
He washed the black away

Washed the black away
Washed the black away
The fucking black away
He washed it all away

All that left are these knives
That are probably just thorns
Somehow I knew it when she said it
You gotta make one die to make one born
