MARIEL MARIEL Unveils “La Morena”, a New Preview of Her Forthcoming Album “La Batalla”

La Morena is the encounter of a woman with respect for her life, her decisions, independence. Mariel Mariel relaxes and sings in a whisper. “Wander…savor the moment and recite like a sweet prayer a call to what you love with your own beauty, and let yourself be carried away by the rays of the sun. It’s an introspective journey to fuel that seductive idea that grows within you, until one day you release everything, you let yourself go for it and it becomes the plan that fulfills your greatest fantasies. That’s why you live alert, protected, connected to your magic and to your convictions. She is the queen, her skin is tanned. She is the queen, you don’t remove her from her world.”

BrooklynVegan is currently streaming the self-titled new full-length from GENOCIDE PACT. The premiere comes on the eve of the record’s official release, Friday, December 3rd via Relapse Records.

Writes BrooklynVegan, “It hearkens back to old school late ’80s/early ’90s death metal, and it’s very much in touch with the genre’s hardcore punk roots but still firmly a ‘metal’ album. And though GENOCIDE PACT’s influences aren’t hard to guess, they offer up much more than idol worship; GENOCIDE PACT make these time-tested sounds feel fresh. And most importantly of all, this album just rips.”

Speaking of the single Jax said “System.Inc and I bonded over a shared love of X Presidents ‘Diamond Rings,’ and earlier in the month we made this track in the studio. I played it to Steff, and she loved it. We went into the studio the next day to write the song and cut the vocal. The way she delivered both the hard rap and the singing elements were amazing. She is the Don! This one was a few weeks from studio to release. When something feels good best not to overthink it, put it out.”
