Synopsis by Mark Deming
Combining the sonic impact of heavy metal with the angular structures of alternative rock and the dark textures of goth, System Of A Down developed a massive fan following through simple hard work, playing club shows and opening for the likes of Slayer and Korn before breaking through to multi-platinum success with their album Toxicity. System of a Down: Psycho Messiahs -- The Unauthorized Biography is a documentary which looks at the inspirations behind the group's sound, and their long, hard climb to the top. Due to licensing restrictions, System of a Down: Psycho Messiahs -- The Unauthorized Biography features no music or performances by System Of A Down.
