System of a Down is one of my favorite bands. They are extremely metaphorical, and absolutely no one sounds like them. This style of their's is perfectly captured, and was in one of it's best states, in their second studio album 'Toxicity.' This album contains two of the band's biggest hits - "Toxicity" and "Chop Suey!" [both of which were in the "Rock Band" game series, as a DLC and on-disc song, respectively], which also are personally a couple of my favorite songs by them. As always, Serj and Daron do great jobs on the vocal perspective, and John Dolmayan [one of my biggest inspirations for drumming] does an amazing job. The album of course is very heavy, especially heard in songs "Bounce, " and "F**k The System." The album lyrically-wise to many people will not seem to make sense, but in actuality has deeply political meaning behind it. Every song on the album is different from the last, and each one is memorable, yet it still all fits the same style, as if they all go together. System of a Down's "Toxicity" is a great album, especially if you're looking to try something new. If you have the time, it's definitely worth looking into.
