System Of A Down - One of a kind
A bad mainstream musical culture often benefit the underground movement. System Of A Down is the result of this phenomenon.
System Of A Down is a feeling. System Of A Down is a state of mind. System Of A Down is the revolutionists of the 90's. They rose up from the underground culture, in a musical era when Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys and the expression 'one hit wonders' was born. I normally don't listen much to metal but SOAD has been imprinted in my brain and body since I just was a little cub. This quartet is totally genuine and characteristic so I can't really compare them to any other bands. Metal is a very wide description of their genre because they are so much more than just metal. SOAD is psychadelic metal polka mixed with death metal screams and falsetto.
The early albums have much focus on sending a political message with songs like Boom! and A.D.D ( American Dream Denial ) from Steal This Album! (2001) while Mezmerize and Hypnotise from (2005) more describe the american society and the morals and ethics from Los Angeles.
If you haven't heard of System Of A Down already simply listen to them you will get hooked right away. This band will stick with you for the rest of your lives.
I recommend the songs Old School Hollywood, Chop Suey! and B.Y.O.B to start with.
