System of a Down is one of the most influencial bands in today’s metal scene. After the rap metal explosion, they were a major force in bringing metal back to its real form. Songs like Suite-Pee, Soil, and War? show the naturaly heavy side of System, while Suggestions, Peephole, and CUBErt show off their Eastern European flavor. Serj proves himself a great vocalist in Know, DDevil, and Darts, sounding like a cartoon character. The best songs are Spiders, Mind, and Politically Lying, Unholy, Cowadly Killers because they have the ability to take on their own life, and end up emotionally moving you. The only song on here that isn’t above and beyond anything else in hardcore metal today is Sugar. Overall, this CD is excellent. If the thought ever crosses your mind to get a Korn CD, get this one instead. It’s well worth it. If you liked this, I recommend Violence by Nothingface, Boy Hits Car’s self titled, and the Dracula 2000 soundtrack, which has the rare cut “Metro” on it.
