      Psycho is a track by System Of A Down which appears on their second record, Toxicity. The track does a good job of establishing a very dark atmosphere in the beginning of the song due to a hypnotizing simple bass rhythm which is soon accompanied by a characteristic guitar riff from Daron Malakian. Tankian enters the song with a syncopated vocal delivery which does a good job to establish a heavy feel for the song. I should also add that

      Tankian’s melody is also pretty catchy and works nicely with the syncopated rhythm of the music itself.

      Though I’m enjoying the song thus far, I must say that I’m very glad that System Of A Down made the smart mood of shifting the atmosphere toward the middle of the song. Throughout the beginning, the track has a very heavy feel which is similar to that of the band’s first record, but in the middle of the song the track takes on ...


      • more of a melodic tone which serves as a nice contrast to what the listener has already heard thus far in the track. Continuing on, the band cycles through this structure twice before reaching the bridge of the track and eventually my favorite part, the guitar solo.

        If any listener has seen a live video of System Of A Down performing this track, they can understand why I enjoy the guitar solo so much. To be honest, I do not think

        Daron Malakian solos nearly as much as he should so whenever he does take a guitar solo, as he thankfully does on this track. Also, I should add that his live version of the solo seems to carry with it a lot more emotion than the studio take, though the solo on the record is also quite good and manages to close the song in a very nice fashion and concludes a very solid track and one of my personal highlights from Toxicity.
