If you like serj, check out Serart. That band is very experimental made up of serj and his armenian buddy.

I used to like them. I feel as though I've moved onto bigger and better things (TMV).

they are definately for a cause and speak their minds, they are intelligent, and express that through their music. I personally enjoy their music a lot, I just think they are pointing twoards the wrong fanbase. my person favorite by them is probably the prison song

When thinking about it, I find that I'm actually excited to hear their new record. I'm praying for it not to be boring. I just hope it's not the infamous "chugga-chugga" sound that keeps popping up everywhere.

i'm quite a big fan as well.

joeri said it best, they're the only nu-metal band i still care for.

steal this album pwns the hardest so far. hopefully their new one will rock just as much.

and yes, his voice is very unique, in a very awesome way.

View Post


Yeah, I'm not afraid to say that Steal This Album is their best either. They completely meant it too when they said that the songs simply didn't make it onto Toxicity because they didn't fit, rather than not being good enough. Steal This Album is insanely good metal.

i've heard they are good.

the band's on their personal labels suck so much though, especilly the guitarist's.

kinda like they went out of their way to find a hard-to-like band.

Hahaha, well fuck that.

After seeing them on Friday, I can't say I'm a big fan, but at least, I think they put on a good show. Plus, I think "Question" is a good song on all accounts. I really was hoping that Mesmerize was more in that vein but I doubt that's ever going to happen. But I still respect what they do. I'm just waiting for them to put out an album where it feels like they really let loose.

But Serart is bad ass. I hope Serj does more with that because I'm enjoying it immensely.

I'll take the cup of tea, minus the SOAD. They are perhaps the corniest band I've ever seen perform live. I tried desperately to give them a chance, but their show in Baltimore drove the nail in deep. C-O-R-N-Y. Chock full of corniness and ridiculous ad-lib banter. If there's a recording of the show out there, check out the "cock" monologue and see what I mean.

i'm a huge SOAD fan, and i do think Steal This Album was really good. maybe even better than toxicity. but mesemrize wasnt exactly what i expected, but its not that bad either. thier debut is the probably one of the best albums ever. serj's vocals on the record was godlike....just listen to soil!!!

I agree, their self titled was pretty righteous.

Hey guys, I downloaded "Mezmerize" and I think it's one of the best things they've put forth (being a system fan since their self-titled, I'm surprised at myself too). I'd probably rank it

Mezmerize/Self Titled
Toxicity
Steal this Album

But Mezmerize shows that they are moving in a more melodic direction. Is it just me or are they exhibiting some proggy elements in this album? Such as the song "Question" is in 5/4 or 10/8 or something... for certain parts, anyways, and then it moves into 3 or 6 or one of those. And they're definitely moving away from classic SOAD sound to something a little bit more refined. I actually rather enjoy it, myself.

But anyways, that's my cup of tea

I love Self-titled and Toxicity, but never got around to getting Steal This Album. Mezmerize is solid, but I have much higher hopes for Hypnotize, if Holy Mountain and Kill Rock And Roll are any indication of it's quality.
