System Of A Down guitarist Daron Malakian and bassist Shavo Odadjian have commenced the songwriting process for the follow-up to 2001's "Toxicity", tentatively due to be recorded in October/November for a mid-2004 release.

"It's going to be pretty revolutionary," Odadjian told mtv.com. "We're taking everything we've done and canning it. We're starting fresh as a brand new band. So you're going to hear this new music. It's going to be System, but it's going to be a new tip. We did what we did, and at first people were like, 'They're doing something no one's done.' Now we're going to do something else that will get the same kind of reaction."

Odadjian also revealed that he is currently working with an as-yet-undisclosed group "of people from other bands you know" and has approached Rick Rubin about producing the project.

"I don't want every member of System to have their own label. It will be like a circus," Shavo said. "But if I have to start my own label just for them, I'll do it. I don't like record company people very much, so I don't want to be one of them. Only if I really, really love the band."

Sounds like something that SOAD would do! Anyways can't wait and I wanted to spread the word to all the System fans out there!

This was for SOAD fans as I clearly stated, we all know your dislike for them. Unfortunately you don't have any respect for other people's opinions. :wth:

IMO System Of A Down is comprised of superior musicians to Linkin Park who play much more original music and are much more talented and actually try to make a difference in the world. If you've ever listened to any of their stuff, especially 'STA!' you should at least have some respect for them...

1. I DIDN'T double post.
2. I made examples of things like LB (1 of 3) that stand for exactly what music is NOT about! Making music (mainly bad music) basically just for money...

And sorry about that its just that I really admire that band, and I got all angry which I don't normally do! :D I understand that you don't like them but some people here have to broaden their horizons and discover more about music. I listen to some rap/metal and hard rock, but I also like listening to heavier metal, progressive rock/metal, and also some classical, jazz, and blues stuff. I play saxophone and I used to play piano and I really want people to get into other styles and explore more stuff! I might have been overreacting but that's something I believe strongly in!

Unfortunately this board is filled with MTV, Limp Bizkit, and Rap fans who don't expand their musical horizons to something new...

that's double posting.

and i resent your second opinion. i like so many bands that have never been played on MTV or Muchmusic. Just because I'm not into Tool, a band that rarely gets airplay, like you, it doens't mean i'm some mainstream music freak.

I respect and like S.O.A.D, some songs just ramble on into nothingness, but alot of the songs have good meanings, riffs, vocals and lyrics.

Seriously, that double post is NOT on my screen. Actually, there is only one quote of each quote in your reply.

I apologize for that last statement though. I was being pretty ignorant. It was in the heat of the moment and I was kinda mad, so I will edit that post...

I hope it would be good enough for fans to start liking their music again, like me.

And their last album was just old songs, b-sides and demos. Songs that didn't make it to the actual albums.

System of a down is good. I hope their next album will be songs like toxicity or sugar (more towards their first album though)

System Of A Down are a personal favourite of mine.. They have a very unique style of music.. Which I think rocks&#33;

System of a Down blows. Sorry, but they were good with their first album, in fact, REALLY good, the second one was a C+ and the latest was bullshit. If their new stuff sounds like this latest crap, I&#39;m not gonna bother.

"Hey, I got an idea, let&#39;s take songs we didn&#39;t release because we didn&#39;t really like them and stuff and put it on an album and title it &#39;Steal This Album&#33;&#39;"

Sorry, I just don&#39;t like some of their political crap - it just doesn&#39;t flow well like Rage Against the Machine&#39;s stuff did.

Evil Amy: Get &#39;Sugar&#39;, &#39;Soil&#39;, and &#39;War?&#39; off their debut album. They are killer tracks that are a lot quirkier and original than Toxicity.

I partially agree with Jawknee, as in the first album was better, but Toxicity was still amazing, and Steal This Album was actually quite good and leaned more toward the style of their first album.

But yeah 2004 will be a great year in terms of albums for me, as my 3 favourite bands will probably all be releasing new stuff&#33; (Dream Theater is writing a new album, SOAD will have one out, and Tool might in 2004 or 2005, as Maynard needs to finish the new A Perfect Circle album&#33; Can&#39;t wait for that either&#33;) (w00t)
