Serj Tankian Tickets - Beyond the System of a DownThere was something oddly enigmatic and infectious about the rather political rock band called System of a Down, founded back in 1995 -- because the sound was so speed-metal and melodious, a true homage to historical heavy metal with a tinge of alternative thrown in. Nobody sounded like the System -- and the reason why was Serj Tankian, the frontman and founder. He was born on August 21, 1967, in the heart of Lebanon in Beirut; but once he immigrated with his family to Los Angeles in 1975, life changed. As he studied marketing at California State University, he actually began his own software company before getting into a music career -- who knew that it would be a good move? Something clued him in, for sure. After making waves with the band System of a Down for over a decade under the Rick Rubin American imprint, Tankian took advantage of the band hiatus to work on a solo album. And that's when he broke out of his hard rock mold and became something even more extraordinary.
Serj Tankian Tickets - The Music of TankianHis solo album Elect the Dead was released in late 2007, and met some pretty good reviews -- enough reviews to warrant the creation of the Elect the Dead Symphony collaboration with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra, a featured performance of his album backed by live orchestral instrumentation. With the success of his first album, the second was apparent -- titled Imperfect Harmonies, an album also re-imagined with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra.
Serj Tankian Tickets - The Sound and Style of TankianWhat makes him unique is the fact that you can't pin down Tankian to any specific genre. The fact is he's more about the content of his work, mainly political and moral. While he's a musician with astounding talent, his purpose transcends that of any other musician out there just for the music. He can be compared to the likes of Elton John in style, in fervor -- but with the fire of, say, Rage Against the Machine. Serj Tankian is definitely a gem.
