System Of A Down

System Of A Down (1998-present) is a Nu-Metal band from Los Angeles, California, USA.


ormed by ex-patriot Armenians Serj Tankian (vocals; a Jello Biafra look-alike except with an afro hairdo), Daron Malakian (guitar), Shavo Odadjian (bass) and John Dolmayan (drums), their 1998 Rick Rubin produced album System Of A Down showed them to be a politically motivated punk-Metal & Hardcore act (a style often referred to as "Nu-Metal") in the style of Faith No More and Coal Chamber. The subsequent tour with Slayer left many Slayer fans to exclaim "Who?", but the effort nonetheless gave them needed exposure. They would continuewith 2001's Toxi surpassing expectations, and follo wed it up with Steal This Album! (2002), Mezmerize (2005) and Hypnotize (2005).
