System Of A Down's Shavo Reactivates Achozen Side-Project

(TeamRock Radio) System Of A Down bassist Shavo Odadjian has reactivated his side-project Achozen, which he created alongside Wu Tang Clan's RZA. Only a handful of tracks had been launched since they announced the venture nearly a decade ago.

A further eight are now available - but only to those who purchase a limited-edition Boombotix Boombot Pro portable speaker. Odadjian tells Rolling Stone: "It wasn't something contrived. RZA came from a band I loved. We became a family and bonded like brothers."

He says the delay over releasing more material came after disagreements with labels about how to launch. "I'm talking lyrics, they're talking ringstones. I'm going to wait."

The pair finally decided to make their work available because they'd originally become friends by discussing the Armenian Genocide, which took place a century ago this year, and was marked with an SOAD tour. Read more here.
