System Of A Down wow at Download 2011

Even though Alice Cooper may be giving more of an absurd show at Download Festival 2011, fans would be missing opener ‘Prison Song’ followed by ‘BYOB’- dance-metal without all your newfangled dubsteppy breakdowns.

While there were comic elements - Tankian’s big pink monkey toy and the silliness of ‘Cigaro’ and its big cock refrains - the set was brimful of metal; dirty metal that fans stood in freezing temperatures for.

As the set drew to a close with a mental performance of ‘Toxicity’ and ‘Sugar’, fans should feel like they’ve got your money’s worth.

Download Festival 2011 concludes tomorrow (Sunday) with a headline show from Linkin Park.
