System of a Down is one of those bands that sounds rediculously good as classical music. Is it because it's so well written? Or did they metal up old classical songs?

I think it's because SOAD managed to create something completely new back then, and it still resounds today.

Even though the band is no longer on 'hiatus', the new album we've been hearing about for the last four years is nowhere close to happening. One of these days, they'll shock us all with new music.
