Rumours are beginning to spread that System Of A Down are coming close to reuniting after three of the four members of the band appeared on stage together at The Roxy in West Hollywood on Halloween. Guitarist/vocalist Daron Malakian, bass player Shavo Odajian and drummer John Dolmayan were joined by Frank Perez of Scars On Broadway for an impromptu set where they played the System Of A Down classic, "Suite Pee" and the Scars On Broadway song, "They Say." Stay tuned for more information.

Hey, it's possible. When they went on hiatus, they said there was no trouble between them. It was just 4 great friends taking a healthy break, hence the hiatus rather than a full break-up.

Four armenians hootin' and gibberin' and the only reason they're famous is BECAUSE they're four armenians hootin' and gibberin' about how lame the US government is. When really if it wasn't for the US, they'd be in some basement in Armenia stinkin' like hummus and eating goat asses.

In my opinion, if you move to the US bcause your home country is too fly strewn, you have little room to get famous off of the "capitalist pig dog americans". If it wasn't for capitalist america, SOAD wouldn't be rolling around in money as we speak. Sex Pistols did this schtick WAY better, and their music aged better too. Oooh we're crazy terrorist lookin wacky foreigners!! Lett's make millions off of retards!!! EPIC WIN

SOAD was great once upon a time. But now they just fall in the "who cares" category along with all the RATMs, Korns, Limp Bizkits and Slipknots.
If they´d come back they´d just be a B-class SOAD, and who wants that? (the point here being, when has the reunion version been better than the original band?)

"real music?"

Because music can be likened to dreaming and the real world, right? A person isn't "real" enough if they listen to one thing and not another?

That's a really, really childish statement to make. What someone listens to should come down to what they like, not what's considered "real music" or not.

yeah well 25, you're anonymous, which means you're a p***y and 22, you're a metallica fan, so that shows how much you know. There's more than five bands on Earth, guys. Why don't we get hype about the GOOD bands that SHOULD reunite, rather than spewin out fanfare over bands like SOAD who weren't even relevant when they were in their prime? I mean , for f***'s sake, Limp Bizkit had more of a redeemable message than these guys did. They hate America so much? Then why don't they go back to Armenia? Oh that's right. There are millions of poseurs here like them who are willing to spend money on sh**ty music, while there are more talented musicians in more time-tested bands with better music playing sh**ty dive bars night after night. There is no justice and SOAD's popularity is a prime example why.

Oh, and let it be known that a three year break isn't a hiatus. Tool makes a groundbreaking album every 5-7 years, and it's never considered a reunion. Maybe if they'd stopped trying to churn out radio hits according to Epic's payola schedule they'd be able to actually take their time writing instead of releasing five albums which contain half a disc's worth of Greatest "Hits" that are hardly fit to go between my drink and my table to protect the surface from condensation and unnecessary water damage. These guys are still a nu metal sideshow. Nothing more. You guys say you f***in hate nu metal so much? Yeah, right. You'd have started with these guys years ago. Bands like Avenged Sevenfold and MCR may wear makeup and eyeshadow onstage but at least they're capable of actually PLAYING MUSIC on their instruments.

Although I hope the do, it is just a RUMOR, not an absolute fact. Get your facts straight before you post something like that.

Btw, if anyone wants to get a real laugh and find his sh**ty taste in music go to his myspace page. Literally dude it sounds like a garbage truck crushing nothing but pots and pans, while some child gets his f***ing lips ripped off by a gator. You have the worst taste and artistic outlook on music. Do yourself and everyone in this world a favor, either stop composing "music" (if its that) tell your vocalist to learn some f***ing vocals or completely renew your band. Also your message in 11 says all they do is hoot and gibber ? Trust me pal, I listen to a wide variety of music and ive never heard anything that disgusting come out of 2 guitars, drums, and a microphone. If they do only hoot and gibber, it's twice as good as your pathetic "music" and hacking into a microphone. Another thing your comment in 27 the last sentence, maybe you should study that band that way you and your talentless friends can actually learn what music is instead of slapping at random a$$ frets. I'm saving you the embarrasment when I say this, DON'T EVER PLAY LIVE !

i will always have a special place in my heart for SOAD. After all, they're the band that introduced me to metal back in 2000. I use to listen to their albums everyday, but now, after listening to them, it just does not do it anymore. I guess I did outgrow them. Still listening to the self-title album and toxicity can bring back good memories though!

I am a singer and the fact that nobody ever hears and understands the lyrics I write is just a fact of life. It's metal and if anyone wants to know what the lyrics are they'll have to buy the album and read the jacket just like metal heads have been doing for over 30 years.

You know, I'd usually be tearing people apart for a lot of these comments since I'm half Armenian and half Arabic, but some of you are too unf***ingbelievably stupid for words. If you want to be racist, do it elsewhere. I'm not surprised at the trolls but I am disappointed in some people who I thought wouldn't resort to this crap since I thought they were better than that. However, it seems I was wrong. Racism is still as alive as ever.

Sorry IN, I are the worlds worst writer truly. :P

Here's the funny thing about everyone calling them four Armenian idiots or whatever, only one of them is from Armenia. Daron is American and Serj Tankian and the drummer are actually from Lebanon. I wouldn't say they support terrorism or that they hate America, but if I was born in Lebanon, I'm sure I'd have a different world perspective than someone born in America. I believe they all have Armenian heritage, and there's nothing wrong with having pride in that. At least they're trying to do something positive by trying to get the Armenian genocide recognized as opposed to American politicians of Irish who descent who helped to fund the IRA and shelter them.

I personally have no issue with their race, I just don't care for their music much. Theres a few songs I don't mind too terribly, but I just don't get into monotone vocals with repetitive lyrics. I guess its really Serj that I detest.

Funny, Serj is who I like. Daron sounds like a cat. So I guess I don't really care if SOAD comes off hiatus. I'll listen to Serj. Actually I'd probably prefer that.

A little late to this thread,but here goes. One of the main things I look for in bands of any genre is originality and SOAD definately has that. Serj's quirky, sometimes operatic voice contributes to their trademarked sound,as does Daron's spastic guitar playing. As for their lyrics...I think their "stream of consciousness" style is refreshing. They should be commended also for their political activism.(especially Serj). Serj and Tom Morello's website Axis of Justice keeps readers abreast of human rights issues that effect their lives.

Hmm..I find it hilarious that this article easily gos from prayin for SOAD to come back, and that fo o good reason ppl have to ruin everyone's hopes and dreams by saying they suck ass****. Everyone's got diferent taste, and I know its hard for some to get their head out of their a$$ cuz everyone thinks their right about their views on music and evry1 should listen to them, but I should remind u that everyone has different taste of music, so if you don't like SOAD, get over it. If you hate how ppl think SOAD isn't nu metal (which it is in a sense) get over it. If you hate someone's band, get over it. If you just don't get along with somebody, get the f*** out. :D cuz u know this article isn't for haters, its for ppl who want them back..cuz guess what? Whether ya like em or not, or grew out of them, or are one of the like 4 ppl here who AREN't fighting an Like SOAD....they totally and will always f***ing rule :D

ilikesystemtoomuch: Isn't it about time you come up with some new material? Parents basements are so overdone and unorigional.

Seven feet under is honest music. If you don't like it, you probably shouldn't listen to it. Use power of will and click away from the page, y'know, instead of blaming him for it.
