Toxicity (album)

From Academic Kids

Template:Album infobox

Toxicity is System of a Down's second album release. Produced by Rick Rubin, Toxicity was recorded in 2000 and released on September 4, 2001 by American Recordings, debuting at #1 on both the United States and Canadian charts. It has the dubious distinction of being the #1 album in America on the week of the September 11, 2001 attacks. The album has sold over 6.5 million copies worldwide.

The album expanded on System of a Down's previous work, keeping the angular riffs and harsh rhythms but adding a pop-friendly sense of melody. With oblique, political lyrics, Toxicity established System of a Down as one of the premiere metal bands of the new millennium.
