Earlier this year, deathcore act Slaughter To Prevail provided a statement regarding the Russian invasion of Ukraine. While they took to their band account to share a statement, Slaughter To Prevail frontman Aleksandr “Alex Terrible” Shikolai (Александр Шиколай) released an additional statement on the band’s behalf regarding Russia’s invasion of the country.

Back in March, Alex shared a brief clip of a new song as well as some lyrics; it was believed that this was some anti-war song that the band would release – come to find out, that is the case. As of today, the band have released a new song titled “1984.” In a press release associated with the release of this new song, Alex shares the following:

“This song I wrote when war got started. I can’t stay silent about all this situation. We made a simple video clip just to say what we think about the war and wanted to post it as soon as possible. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out quickly. This song is not the usual. It’s not like us. But this is the cry of my soul. War is always a huge tragedy for everyone. Please stop the violence and this war. I know many of you wanted to hear something different from us. But right now we want do it this way and sounds like that. This is our message. I am from Russia. I love my country, I love our fans from there and I can’t believe it goes so far from 2014. God save us all. Stay human.”

Below we have included the music video for “1984,” and below that, we have included the lyrics associated with the song. What do you think of this track?

Slaughter To Prevail “1984” Lyrics:

what if it’s all about you?
what if these tears are shed at your house too?
you will smear this shit on the white walls
in your own house with your fam
conscience is DEAD
I see the marching troops
hurts… but I see friends there have no face have no fate
can’t figure out you’re a dumb or what?
death and pain trails behind the crowd
what is it all about?

Please stop the violence
please stop the bloodshed on earth
look into the eyes of children who are scared and remember remember yourself
Please stop the violence
please stop the bloodshed on earth !
my brother my brother !
anger will live in memory! anger will live and prevail !

pretend you are not guilty
pretend you don’t see this shit
pretend that this is not your war
Pretend FUCK

WAR

their eyes are damnd
their faith is crucified
WAR

their tongue is stone
their tongue is dead
WAR
this son of a bitch will stick a knife in your back

look into the eyes of children who are scared and remember remember yourself
Please stop the violence
please stop the bloodshed on earth !

and your anger will never leave you alone
ANGER WILL LIVE IN MEMORY
