This may be the first good news of 2020. System of a Down, also known as SOAD, released two new songs for the first time in 15 years. 

With a high sense of patriotism, the Armenian-American heavy metal band released the songs “Protect the Land” and “Genocidal Humanoidz” yesterday. 

With Azerbaijan waging war against the homeland of the band’s ancestors, SOAD decided to attack and use their music to raise money for their compatriots in Artsakh. 

The band, following some disagreements 15 years ago, decided not to record any more songs; however, the horror of the war and their love for the homeland pushed them to put aside their differences, reunite and write two songs helping, in turn, their homeland. 

In their message, SOAD stated: 

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 misinformation 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 merchandise 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.”
