System of a Down Share Powerful ‘Genocidal Humanoidz’ Video During Charity Livestream: Watch

System of a Down has shared a powerful new music video in an effort to raise money for Armenian soldiers wounded during the country’s recent conflict with Azerbaijan.

On Saturday (Jan. 30), the Armenian-American rockers premiered the official video for “Genocidal Humanoidz” — one of two new songs released last November in response to a war over the region known as Nagorno-Karabakh — during a livestream fundraising event on the band’s official YouTube channel.

Co-directed by SOAD bassist Shavo Odadjian and Deep Sky Animation’s Adam Mason, the video features a blend of an intense live performance with black-and-white animation of a young boy navigating his war-torn homeland while fighting demons who have invaded.

SOAD’s livestream raised nearly $257,000, with proceeds going toward the rehabilitation of Armenian soldiers and volunteers in need of prosthetic limbs as a result of the conflict. Funds will also help provide laser therapy for those burned by chemical weapons.

Last year’s reignited conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan provoked SOAD to raise their voices in support of their homeland by simultaneously dropping “Genocidal Humanoidz” and “Protect the Land,” the group’s first new music in 15 years. The charity tracks have already raised more than $600,000 for the Armenia Fund.
