For fans of a band that tours as sparsley as System Of A Down, it's always exciting when they decide to brush the dust off some of their older tunes.

And even though every System Of A Down song is technically over a decade old at this point, the boys played four tracks that haven't seen a live performance in some time.

As a part of their 31-song setlist in Zurich, Switzerland last night, "Violent Pornography" and "This Cocaine Makes Me Feel Like I'm On This Song" made their first live appearances since 2006, while "Highway Song" was played for the first time since 2005. (via ThePRP)

But the real throwback came in the form of "Pictures," which is a tune from 2002's Steal This Album that hasn't been performed since 2000! 

Thanks to YouTube user Fetisov45, we have fan-filmed footage of all of these songs from their first night of tour—have a watch below! The full setlist and remaining System Of A Down European tour dates are also available underneath the performances.

System Of A Down have stated that they currently have a new album in the works, but are struggling a bit to get through the recording process. How much longer might it be until they debut new music live?
