Marines, also known as a marine corps and naval infantry, are an infantry force that specializes in the support of naval and army operations on land and at sea, as well as the execution of their own operations. In the majority of countries, the marine force is part of the navy, but it can also be under the army like the Troupes de marine (French Marines) and Givati Brigade (Israeli Marines), or form an independent armed service branch like the United States Marine Corps and Royal Marines.
Historically, tasks undertaken by marines have included providing protection from war while at sea, reflecting the pressed nature of the ships' company and the risk of mutiny. Other tasks would include boarding of vessels during combat or capture of prize ships and providing manpower for raiding ashore in support of the naval objectives.
With the industrialization of warfare in the 20th century the scale of landing operations increased; this brought with it an increased likelihood of opposition and a need for co-ordination of various military elements. Marine forces evolved to specialize in the skills and capabilities required for amphibious warfare.

"Vermilion" is a song by American metal band Slipknot. The song is released as the second single from their third album, Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses). When the band plays the song live, they switch from their ordinary masks and wear their alternative "death masks", which is an actual cast of each member's face. However, during the All Hope Is Gone tour, all members except Craig and Paul did not wear the death masks for the song. The song includes a follow-up entitled "Vermilion Pt. 2" which is a continuation of the first part.
Vermilion Pt. 2
"Vermilion Pt. 2" is the continuation of the story told in Part 1. It features two acoustic guitars, a cello, a piano and singer Corey Taylor's baritone-stylized vocals. The melody and the overriding theme run through both versions, making them integral pieces to each other. It has been performed live on the Slipknot DVD, Voliminal: Inside the Nine, and was also performed by Corey Taylor and Jim Root on radio station KISS-FM.
The album cover for Vermilion Pt. 2 consists of the Vermilion single cover, with a red/yellow tint, as opposed to the pink and gray tint of Pt. 1. A remix, entitled "Vermilion Pt. 2 (Bloodstone Mix)", appears on the Underworld: Evolution soundtrack and the special edition of All Hope Is Gone.
The Vermilion were a tribe of the Native AmericanKickapoo, who migrated from the Great Lakes area and the mouth of the Wisconsin River to settle in Southern Illinois. The Algonquian-speaking Kickapoo (from Kiwǐgapawa, 'he stands about,' Or 'he moves about, standing now here, now there') were part of the Central Algonquians, and closely allied with the Sauk and Fox. They were first noted in French records about 1670.
This division was affiliated with the Illiniwek. After the Illiniwek Confederacy was destroyed by northern tribes about 1765, the Kickapoo moved into their territory. The eastern Kickapoo, who settled near the Vermilion River, a branch of the Wabash River, were called the Vermilion band. They inhabited the area until the early 19th century.
By the mid-18th century, some of the area previously inhabited by the Vermilion was taken over by the Piankashaw.
