Sound: The whole band sounded great, all the parts sounded loud and clear. // 9

Perfomance: Here's the setlist: 01. Soldier Side 02. Attack! 03. B.Y.O.B. 04. Revenga 05. Needles 06. Deer Dance 07. Lonely Day 08. Suggestions 09. Old School Hollywood 10. Sad Statue 11. Psycho 12. Chop Suey! 13. Kill Rock 'n' Roll 14. This Cocaine Makes Me Feel Like I'm On This Song 15. Lost In Hollywood 16. Radio/Video 17. Cigaro 18. Prison Song 19. Violent Pornography 20. War? 21. Question! 22. Aerials 23. Holy Mountains 24. Hypnotize 25. Toxicity 26. Suite-Pee 27. Sugar It might not be in the exact right order but all the songs are there. Once again SOAD came to Edmonton and kicked all our asses for the second time in one year. They played a lot of the same songs as last time, and some more songs off of Mezmerize/Hypnotize. They played every single song on Mezmerize, and they said it was the first time they ever played "Radio/Video" and "Old School Hollywood" live. Daron fell off the stage like 3 songs into the set, but he got up again and rocked even harder for the rest of the show. Before they played "Radio/Video", Daron suggested the audience throw him something he needs, like a joint. And then when they did, Shavo picked one up and lit it and they smoked it right there on stage. The background didn't have all the big props and stuff like last time they were here, but the band was so impressive it didn't even matter. Absolutely unforgettalbe! // 10

Overall Impression: The show was at Rexall Place, tickets were about 65 bucks just like last time. The opening bands were Bad Acid Trip and Hatebreed. System Of A Down is one of the best live bands around today, if anyone ever gets a chance to see them go as many times as you can, you'll never be let down. // 10
