For the first time since 2005, System of a Down aren’t ruling out the possibility of a new record at all.

According to, in a recent interview with drummer John Dolmayan and bassist Shavo Odadjian, Dolmayan said:

We are going to make a new album at a certain point, it’s just a matter of when the four of us decide it’s the right time to make it. We don’t want anyone to go in there and do it because the rest of us want to do it. We all want to do it because it’s the right thing to do for everybody. I wouldn’t want to go in and make an album that doesn’t represent the best that we have to offer. If you force someone in the studio ahead of when they’re ready for it, then you’re probably going to make something mediocre.

I love that as much as they want to make a new record, they’re not just going to run into the studio and let that excited blindness push them into creating something iffy for the fans. Everything the band has done up to their hiatus in 2005 was pretty awesome and influential on the metal community in some way or another. Beyond creating an album when they feel like the time is right, the real question is if they can do what they did again to some capacity. be it a new sound or a throwback, will they really be able to capture everyone’s attention once more? I guess we’ll find out sooner or later.
