- Lead guitarist for system of a down
- Me, Myself, and I
- Daron malakian is the lead guitarist of system of a down, recently placed 30th in Guitar World's List of "The 100 Greatest Heavy Metal Guitarists Of All Time.
Daron malakian was born 18 July 1975, Malakian has written most of the band's music, and lyrics,but more recently he has taken on a large share of the vocal work for the band as well.
Daron inspired the name system of a down by a poem written entitled "Victims of a Down". Fellow band member Serj Tankian felt that "System" was a much stronger word.
As the century nears its formidable end, our gobal experience of universal proportions, predicted by many greats, will arrive at our solar system, to our system of a down. Authoritarian oppression, family abuse, depression caused by conformity, and economic devastation will be neutralized by technological terrorism in times of complete chaos. Control will never again be gained for toleration will become extinct. A husband quarreling with his wife will not think twice or regret his spent bullet. Hungry children will not spare the grocer. Remorse in all forms will be removed from human thoughts and actions. Freedom will only be available through revolution or death. This system of a down is unavoidable as life on this planet becomes unnecessary. The hand has five fingers, capable and powerful, with the ability to destroy as well as create. We have the power to stop and reverse the tides of time by making our awareness of abuse known to the powers of industry and their uncouth political arms. Only by raising the awareness and promoting personal peace within today's self-defeatist society, can we allow the planet a chance to avoid self-destruction!
OPEN YOUR EYES, OPEN YOUR MOUTHS, CLOSE YOUR HANDS AND MAKE A FIST.
