In the Beginning

Richie Cavalera (Incite) on The American Way

Sacred Reich, 'The American Way' (Metal Blade/Roadracer, 1990)

My first album was Sacred Reich's The American Way. That was huge for me and my passion of heavy music. "Who's to Blame" is such a great song. I would listen to it on a daily basis as a kid. In the song, (bassist/vocalist) Phil Rind is telling this story about music and suicide, and being a frustrated kid growing up. The American Way is a classic, and an album I'll listen to forever.
