The band System of a Down has written and released two songs to raise awareness to the fighting going on in the Nagorno-Karabakh region between their home country of Armenia and Turkish-backed Azerbaijan.
The songs are titled "Protect the Land" and "Genocidal Humanoidz." They have also produced a music video for "Protect the Land" which includes graphic footage from the ongoing conflict.
SoaD has also set up a fund raising campaign in which proceeds from sales of those songs will be redirected in the form of aid and supplies to families affected by the fighting.
The campaign's narrative is as follows: "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 & wildlife to achieve their mission. They are banking on the world being too distracted to call out their atrocities. We’re here to protect our land, to protect our culture, & to protect our nation."
