Serj Tankian

System of a Down founder Serj Tankian was born on August 21, 1967, in Beirut, Lebanon. He and his family immigrated to Los Angeles in 1975. He studied marketing at California State University and started his own software company before beginning his music career with the formation of System of a Down in 1995. In 1998, System of a Down signed on to Rick Rubin's American imprint, and over the following seven years released five well-received albums, the second of which, Toxicity, thrust them into the forefront of the metal community, garnered a Grammy nomination, and sold millions of copies. Tankian utilized his success to influence the political world he often commented on lyrically by co-founding a nonprofit organization called Axis of Justice with Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave guitarist Tom Morello. He remained active with System of a Down throughout the mid-2000s and also released a book of poetry, titled Cool Gardens, before SOAD chose, in May 2006, to go on hiatus of an undetermined length. Tankian made use of this sabbatical to record his first solo album, Elect the Dead, which was released in fall 2007. Three years later, Tankian teamed up with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra to release Elect the Dead Symphony, featuring songs from his solo debut backed by a live orchestra. Tankian's second solo album, Imperfect Harmonies, continued in the orchestral footsteps of his symphonically re-imagined debut. His third album, the more rock-oriented Harakiri, arrived in 2012. ~ Gregory McIntosh, Rovi

Serj is fantastic. I enjoy his and system's work. He is good solo, but better with system. I'm happy they're touring again :)
Real fans would know they are touring again they will make an album soon
His solo career wasn't as good as when he was in System of a Down. GET OUT OF HIATUS ALREADY!!!!! ! !
he sounded better with his old band system of a down.... I miss them!!!!!!!!
Serj for president!! I wish I could work up the cash to see System of a Down live. I've loved them since I was three. Serj is my idol, dude! XD I would give up my life to meet him. I know, I'm just another sad fan girl... *sigh* #NoLife
Beautiful voice keep on keepna on
That album cover!!!! XD
Empty Walls is my all time favorite song of all freaking time! :D
Not too bad for a man who is 47 years old. Still love the music

This is weird because it works: if you post chain emails, Serj will come eat your babies.
This guy is a musical genius!!!
A true delight to listen to.
Serj is love
Serj is life
This is my life source, SOAD helped me through a lot
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tommorow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least five songs in 143 minutes. When done press 16 any your lovers name will come on the screen in big letters. This us so scary because it actually works.
That's this dude's angle crazy long holding a note and random words
I don't understand the song title at all.
All you are dumb s**t they have been back together since November 2010 they just haven't made any new albums they just tour together I seen them in Vegas in 2012 yall must not follow them to well if you thought they were still on hiatus

Serj's album is almost similar to SOAD. But I would love to see a m comeback
SOAD is just on a hiatus, don't worry. I'm waiting for them to come back..
