After gaining a huge cult following with their self-titled 1998 debut, System of a Down exploded worldwide with their 2001 follow-up, 'Toxicity'. With nu metal at its peak, the band's sound was perfect to appeal to fans both old and new, and with one absolute colossal hit, they were ready for worldwide mega stardom.

Following on from where their previous album left off, 'Toxicity' is a fast, furious and frantic release that refuses to let up for a single moment. The chemistry between the band members is incredible, with special mention to unique and eccentric vocalist Serj Tankian and guitarist Daron Malakian's erratic and intense guitar work. Right from start to finish this is a relentless assault on the senses.

Of course, this album is best known for one song, and we all know what that is, don't we? 'Chop Suey'. With its unusual lyrics and unique vocal style, 'Chop Suey', besides being one of the most well-known, beloved and recognizable metal songs of all time, transcends the metal genre. Such is its reputation that non-metal fans love it too!

However, there's more to this release than just one song, and 'Toxicity' is absolutely overflowing with hits. 'Prison Song', 'Science', 'Deer Dance', 'Jet Pilot', 'Bounce', 'Psycho' and 'Shimmy' are all incredible songs that are definitely worth a listen, and then there's the title track and closing track 'Aerials', which were both released as singles and, while not as well known as 'Chop Suey', have still gone on to become metal classics in their own right.

With the release of 'Toxicity', System of a Down became one of those few bands that are truly in a league of their own, and who's future will forever be defined by this album. A monumental success and one of metals most revered albums, there's really no excuses for not hearing this by now!

In 1998, there is a shock wave by metal-country. So hard and ferocious as System Of A Down had the genre that is rarely sounded. The razor-sharp staccato guitar riffs were admittedly not so very original but the radiated energy that the band was unprecedented. The plate was a great success and gave the Americans among other things the Act for Slayer and a performance at the world famous Ozzfest festival. This sealed the success finally. Now there is the long awaited successor Toxicity. Where the sound has remained largely the same, however, the numbers are even more extreme. System Of A Down excels in writing at first hearing chaotic numbers with pounding guitars suddenly are interspersed with emotional, almost ballad-like, passages. As one of the few bands in the nu-metal-era reserves System Of A Down, a strange but distinctly face and charts a band not from her musical lines on the basis of commercial considerations. Nevertheless, it seems success also for Toxicity in advance already secured.
