It was 2001's 'Toxicity' that cemented their reputation. With every track tightly coiled, urgent and "cast in layers upon layers of aural intricacy, Toxicity charters new frontiers, yet it's still grinding rock at its most deafening." - L.A Weekly

SYSTEM OF A DOWN delivered, and in doing so have given us one of the great rock double albums of all time... "rarely are albums this thrillingly original" - Q Mag
As the headliners for the 2012 Soundwave Festival, SYSTEM OF A DOWN will be bringing their frantic, frenetic and brutal live assault to Sydney and Melbourne for two headline sideshows only.
