"That Scars on Broadway would feel so new is especially understandable for Daron Malakian, who despite his considerable contributions to System of a Down, is now stepping solely into the front for the first time with Scars. How the guitarist got here goes back to System's chart-topping albums Hypnotize and Mezmerize, when he was in the midst of a very prolific creative period. ""When writing for Mezmerize and Hypnotize, there were a lot of other things I was doing on the side with electronic stuff that I didn't think would fit in with System, more melodic, more rock-driven things,"" he says. ""That's kind of how Scars came about.""

While Scars' eponymous debut still rocks with an aggressive intensity, particularly on the opening ""Serious"" and ""Exploding/Reloading,"" both of which bring a punk energy, and the hard rock blues twang of ""Whoring Streets,"" the album is propelled by the melodic and rock tunes like ""Funny,"" a song that is a straight-forward pop-rocker in the best sense of the term, the hooky ""World Long Gone,"" and of course ""They Say."""

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.90)
- 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "'Insane' is steady, rolling darkness with a Who-ish splash of power chords at the end of each verse."

Entertainment Weekly (p.68)
- "[T]he band's gloriously over-the-top heaviosity still makes this a fine addition to the SOAD canon."

Kerrang (Magazine)
- "Parts of this 15-song collection sound like old school punk, some of it is made up of metal, there's a plash of electronica....But it fits together seamlessly, interspersed with moments of melodic magic..."

Kerrang (Magazine)
- Ranked #8 in Kerrang's Best Albums Of The Year 2008 -- "[With] oddball tunes, as well as lovely lyrics..."

Q (Magazine)
- 3 stars out of 5 -- "[P]unchy, perky, new-wave-flavoured metal..."


Scars on Broadway

"I feel like this is a brand new band," Daron Malakian says. "Sometimes we tell people, 'We're Scars on Broadway.' And they're like, 'Oh, never heard of it.' 'That's cool,'" he adds laughing.

Sure, in System of a Down, Malakian and John Dolmayan earned five straight platinum albums, including three #1's, and headlined numerous festivals and sold out shows around the world. But he is sincere when he says, "I really didn't feel like, 'Hey, just because I'm Daron from System of a Down, everyone's just going to bow down to this music.'" That he's not taking anything for granted about Scars' self-titled debut is evident in his enthusiasm as he talks about the immediate success of the powerful guitar driven rocking first single, "They Say." "When I first heard that song on the radio, I was so excited, like I'd never had a song on the radio before. That's really how I felt."

For both Malakian and Dolmayan, the opportunity to prove themselves all over again is one they're genuinely relishing, especially since both concede that after System's decade-long run atop the metal and hard rock world they had started to lose that feeling of newness. Recalling Scars' first two shows, including a critically acclaimed set at Coachella called "One of the festival's hottest highlights," by the L.A. Times, Dolmayan says, "At those first two shows, there was an energy in those rooms that I haven't felt for a long time. And it's nice to have that fresh feeling because with System we kind of took for granted that people would be there. We were playing old songs so the fans were still going to get crazy for them. With Scars, we don't have that; we've got to earn everything and I like that. I like having to fight for things."

"When we were doing System, it was like we walked out, we expected to hear the crowd yell the whole System chant and we were almost numb to it," Malakian adds. "Then Scars played a show with Metallica in Arizona and the crowd was chanting our name. It's so fresh right now, those little things that I took for granted before in System, because it was like that for 10 years. Scars is bringing that life back."
