System of a Down have set the release of their new album to be in the fall of this year, according to a message in their website.

With regards to the recording process guitarist Daron Malakian said in the statement, "We'll play a song through and record it, listen to it and decide what could make it even better — repeat a chorus, simple rearrangement, we all spark off of each other. Some of the new songs have really great moments — we want to make the entire song a really great moment.

According to Malakian, some surprising influences can be heard in System's new work. "The influences range from Kraftwerk to Darkthrone to the Zombies to the Beach Boys, but it all fits together," he said. "It works."

omg the Zombies rocked the radio in their day. i still love them. and almost all the bands around today are influenced by those guys, such as the beach boys, the buckinghams, and one of my personal favorites, simon and garfunkel. how many of you actaully know that black sabbath's influence was the beatles?

System Of A Down is a legend of metal. No one played metal like them, they created new genre for metal. They play hard music rhytmic and agressive with armenian soul. I'm armenian too, i can see it well. Can't wait for the new album.

KMADD and brad, if you dont like a band, dont post in their threads.Unless you can intelligently state why you dont like this band.If not, get out.

Anyway, SOAD is pretty good in my books, they have their original sound and manage to mesh many different styles nicely.Should be a good album.
