System of a Down estrenan sus dos primeras canciones en quince años

Escucha “Protect the Land” y “Genocidal Humanoidz”

Por si no habíamos tenido una semana lo suficientemente movidita, System of a Down regresan tras quince años de inactividad (en cuanto a lanzamientos oficiales) con “Protect the Land” y “Genocidal Humanoidz”, sus dos primeras canciones desde que allá por 2005 editaran los LPs Mezmerize e Hypnotize.

Según ha explicado la banda a través de un comunicado, estas dos piezas llegan para llamar nuestra atención sobre “la guerra perpetrada en nuestras patrias culturales de Artsaj y Armenia por Azerbaiyán y Turquía”. Daron Malakian ha escrito las letras de ambos temas y se ha encargado de la producción.

Reivindicación existencial

“La agresión y la injusticia perpetradas contra el pueblo armenio en Artsakh y Armenia por Azerbaiyán y Turquía es una violación de los derechos humanos y un crimen de guerra”, comenta el vocalista Serj Tankian. “Todos en SOAD nos damos cuenta de que esta es una batalla existencial para nuestra gente, así que esto es muy personal para nosotros. Lo que necesitamos ahora es que el mundo deje de lado la política y apoye a Armenia sancionando a Turquía y Azerbaiyán y reconociendo a Artsaj”.

Todos los beneficios obtenidos por las canciones, a la venta en la tienda oficial de la banda, en Bandcamp y en Amazon, “proporcionarán suministros básicos y ayuda crucial y desesperadamente necesaria para los afectados por estos actos horribles”. Audio de ambos temas disponible justo a continuación.

We as System Of A Down have just released new music for the first time in 15 years. The time to do this is now, as together, the four of us have something extremely important to say as a unified voice. These two songs, “Protect The Land” and “Genocidal Humanoidz,” both speak of a dire and serious war being perpetrated upon our cultural homelands of Artsakh and Armenia.  The current corrupt regimes of Aliyev in Azerbaijan and Erdogan in Turkey not only want to claim Artsakh and Armenia as their own, but are committing genocidal acts with impunity on humanity and wildlife to achieve their mission. They are banking on the world being too distracted with COVID, elections and civil unrest to call out their atrocities. They have the bankroll, the resources and have recruited massive public relations firms to spin the truth and conceal their barbaric objective of genocide. Between these two dictatorships, there’s a lot of disinformation and silencing of voices within their own countries. Freedom of speech is not something that is enjoyed by everyone, but it is enjoyed here, so part of that responsibility is getting the truth out there whenever possible. We’re here to protect our land, to protect our culture, and to protect our nation. This is not the time to turn a blind eye.  As SOAD, this has been an incredible occasion to put everything aside and speak out for our nation, as one, as four Armenian guys. “Protect The Land” and “Genocidal Humanoidz” are now available for purchase on our official Bandcamp page, where band proceeds go toward the @ArmeniaFund. The funds from Bandcamp + pre-orders of our new merch collection will be used to provide crucial, desperately needed aid and basic supplies for those affected by these hideous acts. Please consider the opportunity to download these songs as an act of charity irrespective of how you choose to listen to them today, tomorrow and for years to come.  The music and lyrics speak for themselves. We need you to speak for Artsakh. Links in bio to download, pre-order, and donate now.  #RecognizeArtsakh #ArmeniaFund #ArtsakhStrong #ProtectTheLand #GenocidalHumanoidz
