System of a Down Release First New Songs in 15 Years

The music and lyrics for both songs were written by Malakian, who also produced the tracks. “We’re probably the only rock band that has governments as enemies, the only rock band that’s at war, so I wrote these songs to boost the morale of our troops and Armenians around the world,” remarks Malakian. Watch the “Protect the Land” music video (animated by D.S. Bradford and executive-produced by bassist Shavo Odadjian) and listen to the song “Genocidal Humanoidz” below.
