Serj Tankian Says He Wants to Do METALLICA-Like Projects

Serj Tankian and SOAD‘s future plan who recently came up about Artsakh songs is to do METALLICA-like projects.

SOAD is an Armenian-American alternative metal band, founded in the United States in 1994. The group had dissolved twice before but got back together in 2010 and 2015. However, the SYSTEM OF A DOWN has not produced a project for a long time, and the band’s vocalist Serj Tankian is mostly producing solo projects recently.

However, SOAD released two new tracks titled “Protect the Land” and “Genocidal Humanoidz.” These tracks caused a lot of controversy on social media because the songs were about conflicts between Azerbaijan and Armenia. According to the press, SOAD; “motivated by the recently-erupted conflict between Artsakh and Azerbaijan”.

Serj Tankian Dreams of Playing With an Orchestra

Aside from these discussions, the band’s vocalist spoke to Rolling Stone recently. The artist talked about his plans and METALLICA and said he wanted to do METALLICA-like projects:

“We should basically arrange a classical version of some System songs, at least play them with a nice, proper orchestra as METALLICA did.”

He even said this to Daron Malakian, and explained that he had a dream to perform SOAD’s legendary songs with an orchestra:

“Speaking of classical and System, one day – and I’ve told Daron that one day we should really do that. I think it would be uniquely different for System. Doing something crazy like ‘Chop Suey!’ with an orchestra would be incredible!

Will More SYSTEM OF A DOWN Song Come?

Serj Tankian recently spoke about a new album idea. You can read it here.

The band hasn’t released an album in recent years, and fans can’t wait to hear their new songs. Serj Tankian, who spoke on this subject and gave answers, stated that they are more of a family than a band and that they are always together and respect each other even if they do not sing together:

“The important thing to me is that we’re all close friends, we all respect each other, we all love each other, our kids hang out with each other, my drummer is my brother-in-law…It is American politics, but our love is our mini-politics. It’s kind of like we’re family and we tour together, we enjoy each other, we’ll disagree over stuff, and we’ll agree on stuff.”
