System of A Down To Go On Hiatus After Ozzfest 2006

MTV.com is reporting that System of a Down will go on hiatus after completing the Ozzfest 2006 tour.

"We're not breaking up," Malakian insisted. "If that was the case, we wouldn't be doing this Ozzfest, because we're a little nervous" about trying to fill Ozzy Osbourne's shoes. Ozzy will be headlining just 10 of this year's Ozzfest dates, with System topping the bill on Ozzy's off days. "We're going to take a very long break after Ozzfest and do our own things," he added. "We've done System for over 10 years, and I think it's healthy for us to get away from it for a while and come back to it later on. So, this is probably going to be ... well, it's not a farewell tour, but it's going to be a little while before we go out again."

Malakian said he couldn't guess just how long System's hiatus will be, other than to say a few years. System of a Down have generally held recording sessions every three years since their self-titled debut in 1998, although the release of the material has been staggered: 2001's Toxicity was followed in 2002 by the outtakes collection Steal This Album!, and in 2005 the band issued the two halves of its double album, Hypnotize/ Mezmerize, five months apart. This fall, Malakian said he'll start work on his next project, Scars on Broadway, a band he's still assembling. He's also in talks to score a feature film, but hasn't inked a deal just yet.

And the rest of the band has other interests, too. Tankian runs his own record label, Serjical Strike, and Odadjian has been talking with members of the Wu-Tang Clan about working together on a project.

"I have a few things lined up that I want to do," Malakian explained. "For me, personally, I've written all the System records from day one, so it's kind of healthy for me to go off and do a few other things and then come back to it, as it is for the rest of the band. Some people would call it a breakup, but we don't really call it that. You know, even U2 took a little time off, and then they came back with a new sound. We're not trying to follow anyone — that's just an example of a band that kind of took a little break and then came back.

you sad a$$ f***wits if you'd all grow half a brain and start listening to music and trying to understand what the musicains are trying to say through the music. if you dont like it don't listen to it but seriuosly system had well wrtten intellegent songs as well as absolute sell outs, personally i have a beef with toxicity the album cuz it could of been alot less comercial, But i bet you f***wits listen to bands like tool, trivium and killswitch engage three of the most commercial bands to be called metal. they all sold out in their own way and people say that there mesage is there and it reigns through. Some people say you have to sell out a little to get anywhere in music to support your art. But i Believe those who do this cheapens their art and for that i can never forgive an artist that releases a sh** song as a single because it's more commercial. On the system front they wont be together for a long time until malakian deflates his head and acknowledges that he can't be the lead vocalist cuz they have serj, then they will be a band again like the first album, but as for any EMOtionaly destabalised dipsh**s that are reading this time listen to unrepedative music and get some different songs strctures cuz i'm bored with the breakdown and the poofy vocals from some wankstain gettin f***ed up the arse while singing

cmon red devil he's right that is so spamming and it screwed up this post but u guys have 2 admit that no one is absolutely right. System of a Down has sold out so badly that their music might as well be sold right next to Britney Spears. They're not even considered metal, more like industrial pop or something. System plays songs that have 2 consist of 9 or 20 notes at the most, omg they suk so bad that it's not even funny. Hopefully they break up but if all goes well every single one of them will die a slow and painfull death because they disgrace the sound of rock absolutely. I hope they die and rot in heaven so that i never have 2 see or hear their boring, pathetic, and pointless music ever again.

Thank you slayerdisiple for explain that. I guess that i like some nu-metal, if nu-metal is slipknot, the older korn albums. But i also, more so, enjoy rage against the machine, acid bath, marilyn manson, maybee not all there opionions but deffinetly the sound the comfertable way i feel if im head banging or...........starin into space,,,,,,,yea i think we all have our own problems, i love gettin deep.

So, ummm, your all take this a little too seriously. I'm not emo, and I listen to emo music, I listen to Real Hardcore, i listen to Every single form of Metal. I also like techno. I play DDR. Like grow up. Music is background, something to listen to. It's not a way of life. If you base your life on music and your favorite band. You might get lucky and grow up and make a nice band and make decent money. But you might get screwed and your whole life will go to hell.

btw - that came out mixed up.

Final Line - Grow up and calm down.

My biggest complaint about SOD is that they are an awesome band, with a unique sound and they have come out with two albums of just other songs. There last two albums were 60's style beats and bad lyrics. I like SOAD but bring back your creativity guys, stop just trying to sell albums.

Dear "madmetalman", "no one", "hemu" and other people with the same view on System Of A Down,

chances are i will never return to this site again, as i am only here as my friend pointed out to me that you were dissing System, so it is futile, in my opinion to even bother writing back, but feel free to do so, as it will not effect me in the slightest, and will only result in the wasting of your time.
my name is Emma, and i would like to proudly let you know that System Of A Down are my favourite band. i know this will probably result in you labeling me "emo" of simply filing me under another fasle stereotype, but there you have it.
i would first like to discuss the complete and utter selfishness you are displaying in dissing any kind of music genre, although they are not up to your standards of "metal" i feel System are still an exellent band, regardless of their sound, they display clear messages in their lyrics, and stand up for what they believe in, how they convey their feelings should not be a topic used for criticism, it should be looked at, and appreciated for the fact that they have an opinion, and are proud to express it publically. wether or not you like them is completely irrelevant, other people do, and i am sure you would not like them dissing your music, wishing an end to it, or launching personal attacks on you for your personal likes and dislikes, wether in music, or other aspects of your life.
secondly, if you don't like the band, why bother taking the time to A. diss them, B. deliberately provoke those people who DO like them and C.carry on in suck a manner as to both alienate people, and waste your own time as well as the time of others, not only in having to defend their mucis likes, but in having to read the constant drawl of criticism and foul language erupting violently from your writing. you will duely note that i have managed to get through this entire peice of text without swearing, yelling, launching a personal attack, criticising, filing you into an unfair stereotype, or cussing in any way, but still, i am getting the message through loud and clear.
third, i have observed that you seem to not only have formed an utter dislike for System Of A Down, you appear to have some kind of appaling grudge against anyone who doesnt like your particular style of music. i find this sad to be honest, intolerance has got to be one of the most ghastly traits to have, it disallows your persona to connect fully with those of other people, allowing you to be seen not only as an eletist, but having people see you as a very callus, uncaring person. truly you need to learn how to win friends and influence people. i suggest this goal could be achieved through the adaptation of your personality to allow you to feel human emotions such as "compassion", that way you may just be able to understand that no two people are the same, and no matter what you think perfection is, you are unique in your opinion, as is everybody else, no one has the exact same taste in music as anyone else in the world. you would do well to learn from this, and i hope you then mend the errors of your ways.
finally, i pose you a question. what is "emo"? it is a topic i have discussed with many a person, and a challenge few seem to be albe to master. in out day and age, the meanings of most of our stereotypes have been hideously warped, and as a result, terms such as "emo" and "slut" seem to be being thrown around more and more oftern, each time relating further and further away from the topic and the word's original meaning. so next time you see fit to judge a person's worth and personality based solely on a few lines of writing, i suggest you look up the term you intend to use as an insult, and make sure the situation doesnt backfire and result in your own loss and embarrassment.
in conclusion guys, wether or not you like a band, or in fact an entire genre of music, it is completely irrelevant in the real world, no one really cares, and if they do, they are the people like you, who only care because it isnt what they want you to like, it doesnt suit them, and people like that, you will find, are hardly worth your time, and in the long run, they are the ones who end up all alone in a world that will not tollerate intollerance.

i read kurts biography heavier than heaven and it very specifically states that he overdosed and then shot himself. Yes, he was innovative, but a terrible guitarist if you play, you would realize that his riffs are extremely simplistic. But i'll admit that he was very good at expressing himself through his music, not in a complicated way but that was why he was so popular.

System of a Down's recent release isn't bad - but it still sucks. I don't care for their music. I would not even classify them as metal. One good album (possibly) was Toxicity. Besides that, I don't care.
If System is headlining Ozzfest - that is a testament how bad the lineup really is. I mean if you like metal - go check out the UNHOLY ALLIANCE TOUR WITH SLAYER MASTODON CHILDREN OF f***ING BODOM AND LAMB OF GOD!!!!!!

I wish no hate on anyone who likes this band, but I saw SOAD at Ozzfest several years ago, and frankly I was bored. They had people onstage (I guess they were in the band) hopping up and down and shaking their heads from side to side as they hopped. I thought this was a joke - honestly - and I started to laugh. Then I realized other people were laughing and pointing too, and a few people were actually rocking out to them - the same ones who rocked out to every other band, including the intro tapes played before the show. So I thought - "I shouldn't be closed minded. Maybe if I really listen to the music and try to let it sink in, I will feel it." Nothing. So, I thought "I'm trying to hard", so I relaxed and calmed my mind and attempted to just let the music do its magic - still nothing. No magic. Then I saw lots of people going to take a bathroom break or get a beer and socialize right during their set, so I just chilled out and did the same and looked forward to Slayer and Sabbath.
All in all, I had no desire for any animosity towards the band, because IMO they were so ineffectual it was not even worth getting upset about. The were alternative to me, or like alternative - they did not penetrate and activate any emotion. The ideas that their fans say are in the music is all fine and good, but IMO ideas are for poetry and philosophy, and although they can work very well in heavy music, the MUSIC has to be effective FIRST. I just didn't relate at all, and they were then just another band to wait through to get to the good stuff. And this was during SOAD's "classic era". Hmmm.
Let me be clear. I do not hate this band or those who like them. More power to them all. I don't care what they call themselves, metal or not, and if that's your favorite band, then great. I define music on my own terms, and since I don't want someone pushing their sh** on me, I will do the same in return and not push it on another. But please, SOAD fans, don't be offended if people do not consider them metal. There is a certain feeling that's just not there for many long time metal fans, and since the music just doesn't hit (not just in terms of heaviness, but in terms of provoking your interest, making you feel *compelled*, whether the music is fast or slow or brutal or intricate), all the great ideas of the band are lost to those who are into the MUSIC of a band before the IDEA behind a band. Peace.

You guys, cool down.

If you don't like System of a Down, there is no reason for you to start spamming and flamming on this thread. No one is making you listen to them. By the way, an eight-year-old can type vulgarity. A rapper can do it, a pop artist can do it, a country singer can do it; the list goes on and on. Not that I mind vulgarity, but it would be nice if you could add a trace of intellect to your arguments, other than "SOAD ARE f***ING EMO fa**ot p***ies."

The same goes for the other side. It's not worth getting worked up over if some one doesn't have the same musical taste as you. Just let it go.

Almost every one of you who have posted here is an embarrassment to metal. You are finding fault in everyone but yourselves becasue you seem have delusions of infalliblity. Then you argue over which metal band is the best until the "conversation" deteriorates into strings of expletives regarding how some off-topic band isn't really metal or throws around wild accusations. It's because of people like you that metal heads are stereotyped as apathetic, ignorant, fascist elitist bigots. After I'm finish laughing at your nonexistent vocabularies, I realize how poor an impression you must make on anyone who listens to anything other than metal. We are more than mere monkeys banging on instruments making noise, screaming incoherent lyrics. Unforetunately, many people do not see that when pre-teens such as yourselves are content to argue over why very similar genres are so hostile to each other.

I like SOAD, but I also do not engage in any sort of homosexual activity, nor do I listen to emo. Get over it.

ok, here's the deal:

we don't hate new, modern metal because it's not from the 80s/90s. we hate it because we're used to, and appreciate the talent that the bands and artists from the 80s/90s had/have, and will now settle for no less.which is why we wont settle for nu-metal.

nu-metal is a style defined by its sound, and that sound takes practically no talent to produce. If a new band comes along and they HAVE the talent to play real metal, and dont waste that talent on nu-metal/rapcore/metalcore/etc, then we are very welcoming of that band. for example, Trivium have astounded most of us, and are a relatively new-born band.

we don't hate new bands; we hate talentless bands. recognise the difference. (and yes, I realise that all this is going to be lost on you)

u f***ing retards, all of u saying slayer got no skills. b****es, play a metal cd, any kind of any band and know that without slayer's "no talent" u wouldnt have that, slayer invented metal so to speak. every band back there wanted to be like slayer how dare u f***er disrespect. we'd be still moshing to minor threat and such if it wasnt for them.
soad they're not metal, just as half the sh** many of u call metal is not really metal. trivium - no, killswitch engay - no, hatebreed -no and such and such. metal has 4 main geners which are death, thrash, black and power/heavy, if u cant put a band whithin those 4 geners, it's not metal. jesus f***ing christ, hold some goddamn respect for the legacy. BUT metallica sux c***s, pantera had 2 decent albums in their time (cowboys and vulgar) after that they just started using the same old sh**, same old riffs and idia, selling it for the rejuvinating crowd of 15's.
ffs there were some awesome albums these past 2-3 years such as sadus's new out for blood, vomitory's blasting from sweden, the new-old cannibal corpse, the new mayhem record and the new aborym record, dargonforce man, the list goes on and on, the good stuff are hard to come by that's all.
joemetal, most of the bands u've mentioned are not nu metal, they are not metal at all, aside 3iob. most of it is core and dark wrist cutting doom and sh** like that.

no matter what u say, the 80's death and thrash scence was way better then the rotting exuse for metal we got going today. now days no got the balls to play incubus or dark angel, people back then were eating corpses and sh**ing razors.

Acidb**** - I was talking to all those who just don't get it. mainly Korndogg, I think.

My stance on nu-metal is, if the song's good, i'll like it. If it's not, I wont. regardless of the band, or anything like that. in general, i don't mind most nu-metal. but it's far from my favourite music.

and snot were one kickarse band, no doubts about it.

Slayerdisciple - I wouldnt really label RATM nu-metal, but I wouldn't really know what to label them, either. They had guitar solo's, though...but they DID have rappy lyrics. obviously they helped pioneer nu-metal and rapcore and whatnot. but i dont think they were entirely within those genres themselves. I dunno, too complicated :P

joemetal, slayer desiple - i werent syaing they are emo or such simply not metal (hard fast intense - no doubt but not metal man). i make a strong distinction between metal (thrash, death etc) and core (metalcore, hardcore etc). imo core ruined metal cuz insted of inovating, they degrade the music to what sells and easy to understand. just like new age rock, every band sound the f***ing same and they all sell 200 thousand records in a month.
above^-when i say slayer in mean slayer 1986-1988. back in those days, what slayer did was top of the f***ing line, cutting edge music with talent oozing from it. now people who grew up listening to psycroptic or some other insane sh** like that may think slayer is retarded. reign in blood and south of heaven were albums that set bar, so to speak, back at the time, they were constently pushing the limits of what sounds a guitar can make. they are the to metal as george washington is to america.

SOAD kicks azz. They may not be classified as "metal" which is fine... they sound like NO OTHER band. They have a funky style that I love.... and their sound is totally unique. And they are not breaking up... they are taking a break. sorry FCKERS!

SoaD is a Metal originator. If you haven't been listening since at least '01 you have no say here. Their music is an influence to many Heavy bands out today. Such a musical gift shouldn't be squandered.

You guys hate SOAD because they aren't original, they started a new type of music that wasn't all the same thing. Obviously, some people don't like it.

Everyone is really silly in that all that they can do is comments with a million *'s in it. Holy Crap! Give it a rest all those bands have talent... and who cares what the message is! I'm conservative and love RATM and System....And if you're gonna say I don't like metal wrong.... my favorite band is Opeth... among others as Pantera, Tool, Unearth, Meshuggah, Lamb of God.... and system of a down and rage against the machine.... all have talented musicians (even stupid bands like Gwar, which do suck) they are all just different types of metal... I really do not think that one genre is better than another (unless it is that noise like 50 cent and stuff) Just appreciate all different kinds of metal!

1Raven - SOAD's solo album was EXCELLENT. Their best album yet, by far. However, you do not need to inform us of who Obituary are, we know, thank you (or at least, those of us with an IQ higher than korndogg know). And making judgements of how 'dark' sounding a band is when you clearly state that you havnt heard anything darker than a nu-metal/triphop/rock band is beyond pointless. You've just given yourself absolutely NO credit as a critique. And the only thing that's funny about a comparison between death metal bands and nu-metal bands is that nu-metal bands TRY to make fans. but all they end up with is idiots.


And Tron - yeah, I'd rather read a whole cuss word than half a cuss word and some *'s all over the place any day. And that's a pretty sweet coupla bands you listed - Opeth, Meshuggah, and Lamb of God are excellent. and of course, we all know just how amazing Pantera and Tool are.

How can anyone like a band like system of a down when they just cant f***ing convince anyone that they are any good. any respectable rock n' roll band should realize that they try to sound like every other metal band but suck doing it. By the way, I tried to listen to the message they're trying to get across but I turned off the cd player before they got the chance because they suck, very very bad. Go listen to a good band like Zeppelin or Sabbath and you will say the same thing.

P.S. For all of those f***ing self absorbed dumbasses who worship SOAD, why don't you ACTUALLY f***ING GROW UP AND EXCEPT THE FACT THAT PEOPLE OTHER THAN YOURSELVES HATE THIS BAND. You can actually get it through your thick skulls that some people actually hate the band and like bands that are most likely better. So before you go off on how people shouldn't waste their time b****ing about this band, stop f***ing b****ing about how this band is the best and all others suck (because in reality, they are the worst band ever)

whoops, in my last post (201), I meant system's DEBUT album, not SOLO album :P what on earth was I thinking about? probly off daydreaming again.


oh, and while I agree with the above two posts, they state opinions and opinions only. thus everything there said is merely subjective. therefore, what you are saying, Sabbath, while correct in the context of my world, and yours, is utterly false in the world of others. so those entire two posts were pointless, proved nothing, and didnt put forwards any good, factual arguements or discussions based on universal facts. so before you go ranting, think it through first, and try and provide some sound judgement that wont just end up in a series of "fvck you, bltch, soad are the best band ever" posts. because we're ALL sick of reading those.


thankyou.

This is unbelievable, people against SOAD because of their political views! They're a political band so what do you expect? Your problem is you spend so much time listening to death music then get wasted and jumped up on crack you will believe everything fed to you by the media. You have to be pretty dumb to belive the Iraq war is justified and George Bush is a "lovely" man. Ok, SOAD's last two albums mostly stank, but a split will do them some good. I just can't belive that Serj and the bassist are working with the Wu Tang Clan wtf is all that about?
