    Default System of a Down

    Anyone listen to them? I like their old albums, Toxicity and Steal this album. Mezmerize was alright but Hypnotize was just wack. They used to be way better and i think they should start getting back on track.

    the first album was dope.

    they went the way of a lot of hard rocking bands it seems. they get softer as they go along.

    korn
    limp bizkit
    rage agasint the machine
    metallica

    the list goes on.
    The earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and in triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot.

    People are too stupid to effectively conspire to do anything, but not too stupid to come up with conspiracy theories.

    WHY do people not like the new stuff? seriously??? hypnotize/mesmerize is a fucking masterpiece. why do people say they don't rock as hard? have you guys even heard b.y.o.b? system of a down have improved every album, and all their stuff is solid gold.

    A big SOAD fan here, I dunno what the hate is on Mesmerize but that album is one of the better new releases by them. I cetainly enjoy it more than Hypnotize. Mesmerize is a fuckin classic yo. Toxicity is above our heads, and their first album is as groundbreaking as most sick bands/artists can drop on their debut. SOAD will be around for long, trust me they r the new Kings of Metal. If you like Rage and Korn u'll def. love SOAD.

    why though? it's awesome. maybe not as heavy as previous efforts, but they really excelled with it. i love the subjects in the songs. they all seem so different from each other, yet mould together so well. the last few songs, maybe minus lonely day (that song is a bit gay) end the album so well. the first verse of attack is one of their most well written too, IMO. classic disc.
