Both lyrically and musically MASS PUNISHMENT’s songs are written about current events, and societies around the world being divided, conquered and destroyed. They explore the need to unite people and find peace through understanding and compromise or the absolute destruction of us all. The fierce new single, “God Less America”, will be released on July 6th, 2023.
“The song was inspired by the nightmare of chaos and division that has stricken the US to the core. The lockdowns, protests and riots along economic collapse and poor leadership to the top of a corrupt government that has brought us to the brink of civil war.”
The metalcore outfit unleash a fury of driving rhythms, relentless thrashing percussion and commanding vocals in “God Less America”. While bringing the brutally heavy, MASS PUNISHMENT also incorporate intricate technical leads into this powerful track. The quartet deliver an uncompromising and hard-hitting sound.
About MASS PUNISHMENT:
MASS PUNISHMENT was established after guitarist Christopher Milos returned to the United States from serving in the Army and fighting on the front lines in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Christopher, having played guitar since childhood, had started writing the riffs and lyrics that would soon become the foundation of songs for MASS PUNISHMENT to build upon. Erick Laurino’s commanding presence as a vocalist, Brian Donat’s talent on drums and bassist Scott Ferguson’s flair for composing striking harmonies completed their powerful line-up. Musically the band draw inspiration from the likes of PANTERA, FEAR FACTORY, KORN and SOULFLY, to name a few. The new single follows their 2022 live studio album The Suffering You Know.
