Serj Tankian is the founder of Serjical Strike...

System Of A Down singer SERJ TANKIAN has started his own record label.

Tankian is to issue three records via his Serjical Strike label, which is an imprint of Columbia Records.

The albums, from LA groups Bad Acid Trip, Kittens For Christian and Slow Motion Reign, will be released in 2003.

Speaking about the first releases, Tankian said: “None of these bands sound like each other or anyone else, which is what makes them interesting to me. I like it when labels present original music that don’t necessarily signify or focus on one genre.”
