System Of A Down, "Hypnotize". Okay, so I decided to go the opposite of some gal or dude with an acoustic guitar, but maybe I shoulda tried some death metal or something, this is almost balladic...

  1. You gotta respect a band that attempts to be a cross between folk-rock and Slayer, even if they don't entirely succeed. The effort is worthy of some kudos...

    But yeah, by their standards this way mellow.

  2. Sorry, should've read "IS way mellow," obviously. Me no type good today.

  3. I think Serj actually manages the folk rock meets Slayer thing better on his solo album than SOAD did on their collective albums. But anyhow, I do like this song, it's one of those that's on my normal iPod playlist. And respect is something I have for all of the SOAD gang, even though I agree that a lot of their stuff is not entirely successful.
