As part of our ongoing project to catalog the 2012 presidential election from a metal point of view, we've been soliciting presidential endorsements from noteworthy American metal musicians. Today: Agalloch.
We reached Agalloch drummer Aesop Dekker (also of Ludicra and Worm Ourobouros) through a friend, who passed along a strong endorsement of dismantling all systems. Here's his statement in full:
I support the dismantling of all systems.
