Genocide Pact share new song

Genocide Pact have shared a new single called "Deprive / Degrade." The song is taken from the group's self-titled album (out December 3 via Relapse Records) and is available for streaming through Invisible Oranges.

Comments vocalist/guitarist Tim Mullaney of the track, "This song is an homage to our faster influences... old-school grindcore bands like Terrorizer, Napalm Death, and Assück. We’ve always had parts that were influenced by these bands but this time we decided to do a 100% fast song for the speed freaks. The lyrics of this song describe a generation that is increasingly socially isolated, with world views formed by what gets to your screen. Specifically, this touches on the fine line between entertainment and information relating to negative events. The ratings on war, terrorism, shootings, police violence, and on and on are so massive, it implies to some extent, that a lot of people are subconsciously entertained by the fucked up stories that dominate our media. At a certain point, the news goes from informing people to placing them in the center of a snuff film."
