Serj Tankian – Elect the Dead Symphony

I was just listening to the second to newest Axis of Justice radio show/podcast, hosted by Tom Morello (Rage Agaist the Machine, Audioslave, The Nightwatchman) and Serj Tankian (System of a Down, Serj Tankian), and they played a track from his upcoming live symphony version of his solo release Elect the Dead.

They played “Empty Walls”. It was recorded with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra at the Auckland Town Hall, in Auckland, New Zealand last March. Elect the Dead Symphony will be released as a CD/DVD March 9. Just about 2.5 years after the great solo effort by Serj Tankian was released.

Check out the podcast at It is the podcast that aired November 27, 2009.

Serj stated that it was the best show he played in his life. He said how he never felt the dynamics before with a symphony, as compared with a metal band where there is no dynamics. Something to watch out for.
