System Of A Down - Mesmerize

System Of A Down

Hearing the first single “BYOB”, i thought that System Of A Down finally did something since their debut album that made them deserve all the hype they have been getting since 2001’s mediocrity Toxicity. But all the brilliance heard in the single (putting together galloping riffs, Iron Maiden-esque guitar melodies, a catchy chorus, political conscious lyrics, screamy hardcore punk and blastbeats) is absent from the rest of the album where they do, you guessed it, the same shit they have done for the last 2 records; in fact, i think they have never moved out of their first record, except the quality has gone down considerably; too fucking bad really. Download “BYOB”, that’s all you need here.
