Albenrezension

Adjectives like "ambitious," "jagged," and "startling" have always defined System of a Down, and their third official full-length is no different. Prerelease, the band described Mezmerize as being the first part — the first side — of what's essentially a double album. The records' packaging would even slot together, making the eventual Mezmerize/Hypnotize whole. Appropriately then, there's an intro to System's first new material since 2001's brilliant Toxicity. On "Soldier Side" Daron Malakian and Serj Tankian harmonize as they do throughout the record, and Malakian's guitar has a mournful, Eastern air. But it's just a lull before "B.Y.O.B.," a thrash assault pierced with rabid and incredulous screams. "Why do they always send the poor?" Suddenly the gears switch, and the song stomps in crunchy half-time as its lyrics riff with a sick grin on cultural ignorance. The government's lying, System's saying, but "Blast off!/It's party time." The vocal exploration between Tankian and Malakian on Mezmerize is a thrill — they spur each other on like a two-headed hardcore hero. Their intermingling voices make "Cigaro" more aggressive, frantic, operatic, and totally bananas; they'd be triumphant over the break in "Violent Pornography" if they weren't spitting out lines like "Choking chicks and sodomy." The fantastic "Pornography" is a rusty shiv of absurdity, another example of System's ability to effectively skewer society with little more than hyper guitar, blistering percussion, and weird turns of phrase. Their volatile mix of righteousness, wordiness, odd meters, and thrash has balanced System's activism since their self-titled debut, making them "unique heavy music" over the much more problematic "unique, heavily political music." And Mezmerize doesn't fail to be unique. "Old School Hollywood" essays the bizarre experience of a celebrity baseball game ("Tony Danza cuts in line!") over keyboard effects from "Beat It" and a brutally simplistic rhythm, "This Cocaine Makes Me Feel Like I'm on This Song" is more twisted-tongue histrionics and explosive playing, and Tankian and Malakian's harmonies are the catalyst (again!) for making "Revenga" a truly feral epic. System of a Down — what's another adjective for "awesome"?

Kundenrezensionen

Im ganzen ist Mezmerize für jeden Alternative-/ Rock- Fan ein muss.

Für System of a Down- Fans ist natürlich Mezmerize ein muss, aber auch für Leute, die gerne Rock oder Alternative hören. Mit Liedern wie B.Y.O.B., Radio/ Video, Question! und Old School Hollywood ist Mezmerize eins meiner Lieblings- Alben von System of a Down. Also lohnt es sich wirklich das Album zu kaufen.

Hammer Album

Dieses Album ist meiner Meinung nach das beste SOAD Werk, aber natürlich sind auch die anderen richtige Kracher und absolute Weltklasse. Doch Mezmerize sticht hier besonders durch Songs wie B.Y.O.B, Cigaro, Radio/Video, Violent Pornography und Old School Hollywood hervor. Aber auch alle anderen Songs haben hohen Wiedererkennungswert und sind ein Muss in jeder (Rock-) Musikbibiliothek.

Perfektes Album

Dieses Album kann man nicht mehr toppen die lieder sind einfach perfekt, das macht System Of A Down aus!!!! Ich kann des Album nur empfehlen!!!

Biografie

Gegründet: 1995 in Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Rock

Jahre aktiv: '90s, '00s, '10s

Like many late-'90s metal bands, System of a Down struck a balance between '80s underground thrash metal and metallic early-'90s alternative rockers like Jane's Addiction. Their dark, neo-gothic alternative metal earned a cult following in the wake of the popularity of such likeminded bands as Korn and the Deftones. Vocalist Serj Tankian, guitarist Daron Malakian, bassist Shavo Odadjian, and drummer John Dolmayan formed System of a Down in Southern California in the mid-'90s. They quickly earned...
