I listen to so little music these days, but Serj from System of a Down is among the few groups still making new music.

His Nu-Metal background probably turns you off, but I love it.  He is heavy on the orchestra this time.

SOD is NU-metal? I always thought they were just a rock band with a sense of humor.

I'm with you on that.  They were called gimmicky, but I bought their CD's and put their stickers on my skateboard.

I'm not a huge fan, but their first two albums were pretty good. The term nu-metal brings to mind a band like Linkin Park, who, along with acts such as Limp Bizkit, are responsible for ruining many bus rides home after school for me.

I don't mind his solo stuff but I really wish S.O.A.D. would get back together.  Hypnotize and Mezmerize were friggin' brilliant.  Funny that when they first came out I couldn't stand them.

I like SoaD - Toxicity (the album) a lot. It's one of my more incongruous music tastes.

Also I know they're supposed to be nu-metal but they always struck me more as glam revival or something. Serj's particular vocal stylings are really not that far removed from early-70s Brian Eno or pre-Berlin, post-Hunky Dory Bowie. Compare Paw Paw Negro Blowtorch, Ziggy Stardust, and, I don't know, Pogo. Or Roxy Music's Virginia Plain for that matter. The underlying music styles are pretty different on all of them, but the vocals share a very similar flavor of acrobaticity. Particularly in terms of penchants for rapid pitch shifts, sudden switches between 'chest' and 'head' vocalization, etcetcetc i am fucking babbling oh god what

The salient point is that several songs on Toxicity had banjos on them.
