Pretty much single handedly responsible for getting me into metal altogether with their 'Toxicity' release. This is one amazing band, respected by critics and fans alike they create very original and unique music which can be appreciated on many levels as they take influence from all sorts of genres.

I've always had a bit a of a hard on for Serj's vocal style. He can be operatic and he can also bellow the house down if he wants to, one of the most distinctive vocals styles I've ever heard.

I've no doubt the "are they Nu Metal?" debate will come into play very soon, I for one don't see how they can be regarded as such, they simply have too many styles in their music to just be classified as simple nu metal.

Anyway, my personal fave album is their self titled debut, just a very chaotic release and very heavy and aggressive whilst having some crazy ass lyrics and compelling songwriting.

There are rumours that they split up for good, are they real?


I don't know, i heard on the radio the other day that they are about to record a new album... 'Not sure if the source was reliable though...


Honestly, until now I haven't heard anything about that...

Well, Serj said that they take a break and that he have a lot of songs 4 a new album but they not gonna record it so soon.
All we can do now is listening SOAD's old albums until they record new.
But I'm not complaining at all.

It got me into metal, but since finding epic things like Eluveitie and Wintersun and stuff, I just haven't had time to listen to SoaD. Don't like em too much any more.

I finally got around to listening to that Scars on Broadway album. I pretty much gave it the same response to Serj's solo album: "Ehh... it's all right, I guess". It really is nothing particularly special. It's a bit more rock based than Serj's album, but it also managed to be more repetitive in its lyrics (somehow).

All that it does is make me long for a SoaD reunion.

Really liked their first three albums, but despite great expectations I couldn't find my way into mezmerize. So I didnt pay so much attention to them, as IMO they've lost lots of their power and ability to surprise. Got a bit repetitive on mezmerize.

Well, Serj said that they take a break and that he have a lot of songs 4 a new album but they not gonna record it so soon.

And: if the singer starts his own career and means, that there are some songs left, which he doesn't need for his own project, there seems to be something wrong..
So for me listening to the older albums is the better to keep their memory honorable...

If there are songs left which Serj doesn't need for his project then they're obviously going to be on the next SOAD release when they're done with their break...I don't see the "break" lasting too long really...

And you really want to listen to songs, which he's got left?! For me that sounds like "I got some pennies left..."

In a recent interview with RollingStone.com, Serj Tankian revealed that there are currently no plans for him to reunite with his System Of A Down bandmates and work on new music.

Toxicity and Steal this Album! are good albums. but everything after that is too over the top political for my liking.

Honestly I think that Serj's vocals have changed too much to work for future SOAD albums.

Just compare his performances from the Elect The Dead tour with BDO 2002.
