System Of A Down: Mesmerize
Ian Watson, Yahoo Music, May 2005
YOU COULDN'T MAKE them up. An American-Armenian four piece based in LA who feed eye-bulging political fury through Dead Kennedys-style anarcho punk, crunching riff-heavy thrash metal and celebratory Romany folk, System Of A Down carved out a league of their own with 2001's spectacular Toxicity album.
