A walk in the Park, Volume 273

DAILY WARDEN TRACK: Earlier today I read an interview with drummer John Dolmayan of metal band SYSTEM OF A DOWN.  He has definitively stated that he’s “not really happy with where the band is right now.”  Dolmayan also says the fact that System Of A Down have not even started working on new material is “not okay.”  In the meantime, the drummer is working with his new project THESE GREY MEN, featuring James Hazley, formerly of Cockeyed Ghost.  Who knows when we’ll see / hear new music from System Of A Down, but while we’re waiting, I’m going to share one of their classics.  From their 1998 debut (self-titled) album, click “play” and crank up “SUGAR!”
