    amazing. reminds me of the band "...and you will know us by the trail of dead."
    who were originally named after an entire poem/chant/spell:

    "Sever for us all ties between the now and what is to be
    We will act as your sword, oh Great Itzamna
    And you will know us by the trail of dead."
