Genocide was conceived and assembled prior to 1982. Genocide went to Long Island New York in January 1982 and recorded the ambitious LP: Too Long. It was released to an amazed fan base that had never experienced this type of musical hybrid locally; Heavy Metal and Prog. The bands life would be powerful but short lived. Plagued with the deaths of band members, stolen gear, and internal strife, the band would only exist 5 years, and eventually transformed into the band Hendrickson.
