    SYSTEM INTERVIEW
    Driving around the streets of Los Angeles en route to pick up his vehicle and drop off the rental that he's in, Serj Tankian's seemingly mundane errand is a perfect paradigm for his life at the moment. Along with his bandmates, Tankian is on the proverbial metaphoric road, claiming ownership of their sound and casting off any doubts that System Of A Down was just another thrash and bash band of rented noise. Having spent the last several years reaping the benefits of a gold-selling self-titled debut -- thanks in large part to their theatrically-driven dynamic live shows -- the group is now ready to release their highly anticipated follow-up, Toxicity.

    A heavy-hitting barrage of pounding rhythms, jarring guitars (each track has twelve layers of them), and quirky vocalizations mixed in with relentless snarls, growls, and roars, the new album fiercely brandishes what listeners have come to expect from the Armenian foursome, while branching out into newer territory, incorporating more experimental instrumentation and showcasing the harmonious interplay between Tankian and guitarist/vocalist, Daron Malakian. "This new album is a bit more focused, and more melodic," Tankian tells me from his cell phone while maneuvering through the canyon. "There are more harmonies with Daron's vocals and mine, and those are the main technical differences [between Toxicity and their debut]. As far as the sound, the record is much fuller. Some songs have samples, keyboards, piano, and live strings as well as multi-layered guitars, so it's much more lush."
    That richly textured sound coupled with the euphonic capabilities of Tankian and Malakian is particularly evident on songs like "Chop Suey!" "Ariels," "ATWA" and "Psycho," each of which showcases the band's melodious strengths without abandoning the thrash aspects that precipitate mosh pit fever. "Psycho," a somewhat humorous song about drug-addled groupies, bursts open with Tankian vociferously reiterating the phrase "Psycho groupie / Cocaine crazy" against a caustic cadence before segueing into a soothing mélange of melancholic guitars that wrap around the lyrics, "So you want to see the show / You really don't have to be a ho." Conversely, "ATWA," a song that explores Charles Manson's view on the environment, begins with a beguiling soft guitar intro before breaking out into a full-throttled brouhaha of belligerent beats. Having recorded a total of 33 fully tracked songs during a nine-week period, it was a lengthy process to narrow it down to the fifteen tracks (including a remarkable Armenian-inspired hidden "outro") found on Toxicity. Especially difficult since, as Tankian unequivocally asserts, "I don't have a favorite song because I don't believe in good or bad. They're all great; that's why we put them on there."

    It was several years ago when Tankian, Malakian, bassist Shavo Odadjian, and drummer John Dolmayan played the Viper Room and impressed legendary producer Rick Rubin enough to get signed onto his American Recordings label. Having produced the group's first album that had hits such as the idiosyncratic "Sugar" and the melodically moody "Spiders," Rubin was once again at the helm of SOAD's latest venture. "Rick has been very involved in our records," notes Tankian. "The producer's role is to make sure everything works out fine, to make sure that the musicians are as artistically compelled as they should be, and that everything sounds good and proceeds correctly. I think Rick has done all of that."

    An inherently private person, the extremely soft-spoken Tankian veers from personal disclosures and is usually the last in line when it comes to doing press. "It's hard enough having people coming up to me and telling me what my favorite ice cream is, let alone having my private life revealed to the public," he divulges in between moments of cellular static. "I mean, some people are very public and that's fine, but that's just not me. I try to remain fresh for e

    ATTACK
    Breathing each other's lives
    Holding this in mind
    That if we fall, we all fall
    And we fall alone
    The cold insincerity of steel machines
    Have consumed our euphoria
    Transforming us into muted dreams
    Dreaming of the day that

    We attack
    Attack, attack your fetal servitude
    We attack
    Attack, attack, attack with pesticide
    We attack
    All the years of propaganda
    We shall attack

    Books illustrate what we already know
    Candles cry towards the sky
    Racing your flags along polluted coasts
    Dreaming of the day that

    We attack
    Attack, attack your fetal servitude
    We attack
    Attack, attack, attack with pesticide
    We attack
    All the years of propaganda
    We shall attack

    Attack
    Attack

    Breathing each other's lives
    Holding this in mind
    That if we fall, we all fall
    And we fall alone

    Breathing each other's lives
    Holding this in mind
    That if we fall, we all fall
    And we fall alone

    What's the philosophy of displaced mines The bombing of all homes and
    villages Truth is the only sword bleeding minds Bleeding till the day that

    We attack
    Attack, attack your fetal servitude
    We attack
    Attack, attack, attack with pesticide
    We attack
    All the years of propaganda
    We shall attack

    Attack all the homes and villages
    Attack all the schools and hospitals
    You attack all the rapes and pillages
    We shall attack

    We shall attack

    DREAMING
    For today we will take the body parts and put them on the wall

    For treated indigenously, digenously
    Human right is private blue chip, pry

    We're the prophetic generation of bottled water, bottled water
    Causing poor populations to die, to die, to die (For treated
    indigenously, digenously) (Human right is private blue chip, pry)

    You, you went beyond and you lost it all Why did you go there From
    beyond you saw it all why did you

    We lost consumer confidence in casual karma, casual karma
    Confetti, camouflage, camouflage, the flage, the flage

    You, you went beyond and you lost it all Why did you go there From
    beyond you saw it all why did you go there

    She lost her mind
    Someone kicked her into the back of the line

    She lost her head
    When they called and they said that they thought he was dead

    Dreaming of screaming
    Someone kick me out of my mind
    I hate these thoughts I can't deny

    You will take the body parts and put them up on the wall And bring the

    KILL ROCK 'N ROLL
    So I felt like the biggest asshole
    (Felt like the biggest asshole)
    When I killed your rock 'n roll
    (Mow down the sexy people)

    Every time I look in your eyes
    Everyday I'm watching you die
    All the thoughts I see in you
    About how I
