  • As you could expect, if they tried to continue the song on in this same fashion for the entire duration, it would easily get boring, but the band doesn’t fall into this mistake and certainly change up the dynamics after about a minute in where they transition into a much more aggressive sound which is faster at the start, but then returns back to the slower tempo they had throughout the intro
  • Though this song may be one of the less accessible System Of A Down songs, it is one which I’ve recently come back to and think is one of the hidden gems on their debut record so I would certainly recommend this track to any listeners already familiar with System Of A Down and would like some of their less well known songs

      Mind is a song by System Of A Down which appears on their self-titled debut album. The track starts off with a very quiet introduction which is led purely by bass until an eerie guitar also comes in along with Tankian joining in with a whisper.

      Overall, the mood of the song is incredibly eerie during the beginning, particularly due to the bass rhythm and the tone Malakian has on his guitar.

      One thing that I should note about this song is that it’s slightly over


      six minutes long which is quite a long song by System Of A Down standards, particularly by the standards they set for themselves on their first album.

      As you could expect, if they tried to continue the song on in this same fashion for the entire duration, it would easily get boring, but the band doesn’t fall into this mistake and certainly change up the dynamics after about a minute in where they transition into a much more aggressive sound which is faster at the start, but ...


      • then returns back to the slower tempo they had throughout the intro.

        Though that eerie atmosphere I mentioned now is no longer present, I will say that System certainly plays around with dissonance throughout the verses and then rely on an incredibly aggressive sound to follow this.

        What I mean to stress throughout this review is that the overall tone and mood throughout this song is changing fairly constantly, within the first three minutes of the song alone it has three incredibly distinct parts to it which

        is why the band is able to have this song go on for over six minutes without it drawing boring, in my opinion at least.

        Though this song may be one of the less accessible System Of A Down songs, it is one which I’ve recently come back to and think is one of the hidden gems on their debut record so I would certainly recommend this track to any listeners already familiar with System Of A Down and would like some of their less well known songs.
