Hear System Of A Down's Serj Tankian team up with DJ Benny Benassi on new track 'Shooting Helicopters'

Serj Tankian, frontman with oddball metallers System Of A Down, has teamed up with dance producer Benny Benassi on a new track named 'Shooting Helicopters', you can hear it by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.

The track came about after the pair met in 2013 and agreed to collaborate, it was worked on over a period of six months.

Speaking about the track, Benassi said: "The idea of bringing Serj's vocal style into our musical environment was a real challenge. As soon as I started experimenting with the music under the vocals, I was immediately struck by the atmosphere of the song which is decidedly different from most things you here at the festivals I play at and unlike anything we've done so far, ourselves."

He continued: "I started playing embryonic versions out, especially as a set opener and the effect was devastating. We kept working on the music until we were 100% satisfied."

Benassi has previously released collaborations with the likes of Kelis, Madonna and Chris Brown.
