Editors’ Notes

System of a Down set themselves apart from the nü-metal pack by embracing alternative influences, including punk and Zappa-esque art rock. Abrupt changes in tempo and dynamics are matched by the mercurial vocals of Serj Tankian, who morphs from fire-breathing screamer to impassioned missionary to Arabic folksinger, often within the span of a few seconds. “Chop Suey!” became an MTV sensation and remains one of modern music’s most compelling anthems.

Customer Reviews

S.O.A.D.'s Best Album

In my opinion System Of A Down's best album. Below is my review. Definately a must have for any System fan. Prison Song - The best opener I've ever heard on any CD. 5/5 Needles - Good song, Daron has a cool solo part. 5/5 Deer Dance - Awesome heavy song, can really get a crowd moving. 5/5 Jet Pilot - Even though it's a filler, it's pretty good. 4/5 X - Also a filler, but I like 'Jet Pilot' more. 3.5/5 Chop Suey! - One of System's most successful songs to date. 5/5 Bounce - Funny lyrics, good guitar. 5/5 Forest - Not a bad song, just hasn't caught my attention. 3/5 ATWA - One of my favorite songs on the album, Serj and Daron's voices sound really good together. 5/5 Science - Kind of like 'Forest', except I like this one more. 4/5 Shimmy - Really good song, goes by fast. 5/5 Toxicity - My favorite on the album, each band member does an outstanding job in song. 6/5 Psycho - Only part I like is the chorus, but that's really it. 4/5 Aerials - Another good song,which has also had much success. 5/5 Arto - Probably my least favorite. 2/5

Name a better album

Their dark, neo-gothic alternative metal earned a cult following in the wake of the popularity of such like-minded 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...
