Chicago political metallic hardcore act RACETRAITOR have premiered a new song called “The Cult Of Eschatology”, coming from their follow-up to their 1998 effort “Burn The Idol Of The White Messiah” called “2042”, to be released on October 12th via Good Fight Music.

Bassist R. Brent Decker commented:
“With ‘Cult of Eschatology’ we wanted to address the racist way the US talks about the high levels of violence in cities like Chicago. The entire framing of the issue and the policies that are adopted serve white supremacy. Words like ‘criminal,’ ‘offender,’ and ‘victim’ are all euphemisms to get politicians elected and shovel more money to a ‘prison and policing industrial complex.
Nothing is really about solutions, violence reduction, or real people. The criminal justice system we have is just rooted in the ideologies of punishment which destroys countless lives, decimates communities, and strengthens corporate interests. Living and working in Chicago, this is all stuff we have seen first hand and it needs to be abolished.”
