As I’ve mentioned before, I listened to a lot of System Of A Down during my early, formative years with Dionysos, so their music has become imbued with powerful memories of him and all the rituals I performed back then. Listening again makes it all come flooding back, so I put together this playlist of some of the band’s more Bacchic songs.
I’m not angry. When you dance around a fire and you go off in an ecstatic frenzy of spirit and life and then you yell at the Gods so you can make your spirit heard – that’s not anger! (Serj Tankian, Rolling Stone interview)
