After the success of their fourth and fifth albums, ''Music/MezmerizeHypnotize'', in 2006 they parted ways to work on various non-SOAD projects (Tankian's solo effort, ''Music/ScarsOnBroadway'' formed by Malakian and Dolmayan, and Odajian's work with RZA). All of them except Malakian claimed this was an indefinite hiatus, but a lot of fans assumed it was more of a break-up, until they reunited for a tour in 2011. The band have continued to tour since, but it currently unclear if and when the band will record another album; as of 2015, Tankian has stated a new album is being considered, but there is no definitive word on anything.

** Earlier on, the album-length Demo Tape 4 has a few examples of this, but notably the otherwise unreleased "Blue" goes into "Mind" via subtle ambient noise, which enhances the effect of both songs.

* RapMetal: Delved into this when they did a version of "[[Music/WuTangClan Shame on a Nigga]]"

* RecycledLyrics: Though the band never returned to "Friik" after Demo Tape 4, Serj had its lyrics published as a poem in his book "Cool Gardens" in 2001. He also rerecorded the song "Blue" from the tape in his solo career, which means that every one of the songs on the tape has been released in some way.
** The early demo track "PIG" was rewritten into "Mr Jack", with the majority of lyrics and tune reused, the main difference being that the heavy section at the beginning was moved to the end, replacing the original coda, and new verses were written around what had been PIG's SubduedSection.


Added DiffLines:

** "Mind", "Blue" and "Friik" are about this too. "Blue" is a man going mad from a woman leaving him and turning to a god he doesn't really believe in, "Friik" is a man who is aware he's going crazy but is unable to stop it, and "Mind" is a man who keeps having panic attacks due to having been abused as a child.

* ArcNumber: 36 had always had its title since it was written and demoed back in the 90s, but the band specifically held over releasing it until it could actually be the 36th album track they released (It became this as the 9th track on Steal This Album). The band slightly changed the title frm its original 36 to .36 to symbolise it was the 36th track. This numbering doesn't count demo tracks, bonus tracks or B-Sides, which would obviously push the numbers up.



* SopranoAndGravel: Serj does this all by himself on the first album, going from screeching to clean singing to guttural roars. Some of the clean singing on later albums is done by Daron.

This is taken to its logical extremes in the demo track "Temper" where he sings the verses peacefully an growls the choruses.


Added DiffLines:

* TheBusCameBack: 'Blue' was abandoned by the band after its demo and live performances in 1997, but Serj adopted it as a solo track and produced several recordings of it.

** Their reworking of "The Metro" by Berlin has just one change to the lyrics at the end:
--> ''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis FUCK. YOU.]] For loving me,
--> ''Riding on the metro''
