One of the best voicez in this generation of rock, in my opinion.

    He’s alright. It gets annoying as hell after awhile though


    If not the best voice, the best influence. Talks about shit that actually matters, unlike U2, I’ve been listening to system of a down since the first CD..


    yeah i agree with that. i remember listening to shimmy in high school, it was summat else

    “Do you ever look at the sky and think, I’m glad I’m alive? After I heard System of a Down, I thought, I’m actually alive to hear the shittiest band of all time. Which is quite something when you think about it. Of all the bands that have gone before and all the bands that’ll be in the future, I was around when the worst was around.” – Noel Gallagher I don’t mind how they/he sounds but best voice? Hardly. You sir need to listen to more music. Deftones makes this burglar of turds look like kiddie fodder. Plus his… Read more »


    Matthew Bellamy is better


    Serj is an amazing singer, and his message to the world is really influential. I love SoaD and his solo act.


    I actually listen to SoaD, so this isn’t fully negative, but it’s criticism. A lot of their songs start out really great – the tune, the beat, the singing, the lyrics, and everything. Then about halfway through, they just go into some high school dropout garage band who are all playing the instruments they don’t normally play, and the singer just shot a nail through his hand and screamed in to the mic. Then it goes back to the good song that you were listening to 30 secs before. Kinda ruins it for me. Oh, and that song that got… Read more »


    I actually like his voice, it has a strange quality to it that many singers don’t have. Although, imo, many singers today sound very similar, which gets really annoying after a while, which is why I like singers like serj.


    “annoying after a while” was repeated a lot in this thread, which says it all i think. and if by after a while you mean 3 seconds.


    i like him
    but brandon Boyd kicks Serj’s ass easy


    vocal wise


    Serj + SoaD ftw. Just one of 3 bands I regularly listen to. Because I’m a music Nazi.


    For a music nazi, you surely pick the worst of the worst.


    Syndrome of a Down sucks. Serj must wish he could be Mike Patton.

    And the lyrics… they’re fucking horrible. Childish, ham-fisted teenage political slogans.
    “Why don’t presidents fight the war? Why do they always send the poor?” Yeah, that was fucking deep and fucking original… just not quite as deep or as original as when Black Sabbath said exactly the same thing, more eloquently, in War Pigs.

    FUCK YOU, Serj FAG-ian!


    The Azeris didn’t go far enough with their genocide if this is an example of an Armenian.

    Fucking pussy hippie surrender monkey.



    Serj’s voice may be an acquired taste, but no more than that of many other legendary singers and lyricists. What about Bob Dylan? Now, I’m not going to say that Tankian can compete Dylan as far as lyrics go, but you can compare vocal quality. In no way can Dylan be considered a Sinatra, but people don’t criticize him for that. You can’t complain about a singer’s voice in this genre of music. It’s like going to another country and refusing to eat because the food looks unusual to you. You need to make exceptions in a place like this.… Read more »


    he looks like a young dio.


    I don’t know how people can directly compare the voices of Serj Tankian, Matt Bellamy and Brandon Boyd and be in a position to say which is better – all three are completely different and possess unique qualities.

    Still, I think Serj lost his edge when he started doing solo stuff.
