Appearing next was System Of A Down, along with what must be the most crazed and most loyal group of fans that any band could have. To say the house exploded with excitement is very much an understatement. Although System Of A Down never stresses their nationality, their musical heritage just can't be ignored because it is such an essential ingredient in their distinctive sound. Their Middle Eastern influences infuse System Of A Down's music, form their vocal tones and inflections to their guitar styling to their choice of rhythmic patterns. These intriguing Eastern elements cast quite a fascinating musical spell, but that doesn't prevent System Of A Down from rockin' with a red-hot vengeance. In fact, System's sound is monstrously aggressive, angry, strident and just as compelling as it could possibly be. System Of A Down is a relatively young band, but they perform like seasoned pros with innate confidence and the kind of charisma that whips their crowd into a swirling frenzy. While System Of A Down is thoroughly enjoyable now, given a little time, they can easily develop into a dominant force on the heavy music scene. --Review by ?????, Rock City News (Jan 11, 1996, Pg. 19)
