    System of a Down bassist Shavo Odadjian and key Wu-Tang Clan member the RZA have finished their first album as Achozen, a self-titled effort that's due out through Odadjian's digital label (urSESSION) this summer. Following the self-proclaimed mantra of "many shall come, only a few shall be Achozen," the group features the vocals of Kinetic 9 (a.k.a. Beretta 9 of Killarmy) and Chicago's own Reverend William Burke.

    While RZA contributed a decent amount of beats to the project, Odadjian actually generated most of the album's original, largely sample-free productions. The estranged SOAD member also played bass and sitar. A number of high profile guests also helped out with the record, including George Clinton, Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante, Killah Priest and GZA.

    Song titles are unknown at this time, but the quartet is debuting a track called "Deuces" on urSESSION.com Tuesday, April 22, at 4:22 p.m. PST.
