Origin: California, USA  
Genres: Nu-Metal, Alternative Metal
Last update/review: July 14, 2005


Systematic's rather short life was punctuated by a few notable items, one being their signing to Lars Ulrich's short-lived record label (one of the first, and few, to do so), and another being the recruitment of noted thrash drummer Paul Bostaph, who has played with several Bay Area thrash bands over the years. Their music is a bit on the nu-metal side, though more of a hard alternative style rather than the stereotypical style of, say, Korn. Despite decent reviews and major label backing, the band never really found its niche, and following an April show in 2004, they decided to break up. Vocalist Tim Narducci recently joined a revamped and renamed Manmade God, who are now going by the name Spiralarms.
