It's been five years since Genocide Pact first clambered forth from the swamp known as Washington, D.C., subjecting audiences in our nation's capital — and in time, everywhere else — to some of the most gnarled death metal in recent memory. Between 2015's blistering, buzzed-about debut Forged Through Domination, their touring resume (they've played with heavy-hitters like Nails, Power Trip, and Torche, just to name a few) and now, their inking with Relapse, the trio — Tim Mullaney (guitars/vocals), Mike Nolan (bass) and Connor Donegan (drums) — is bound to hit a breakthrough soon. Judging from what we've heard of their upcoming sophomore album Order of Torment, namely its crushing first single, "Conquered and Disposed," Genocide Pact's ascendancy is all but certain in 2018.
This brings us to your mandatory listening for the day, dear reader: Genocide Pact have proffered up another titanic-sized slab o' death from the coming LP, "Structural Dissolution." Give it a spin now, and pre-order Order of Torment here ahead of its February 2nd arrival via Relapse Records.
