Sons of the System is the fourth album by Danish industrial metal band Mnemic, released in Europe on January 18, 2010 and in North America on January 26, 2010. This would be Mnemic's last album with members Rune Stigart, Tomas "Obeast" Koefoed, and Brian Rasmussen before they all left the band in 2011.

The album was recorded in the band's own studio with producer Tue Madsen, who worked with the band on previous releases Mechanical Spin Phenomena and The Audio Injected Soul. The band describes the album as "Very eclectic, very diverse, and nothing that you would imagine coming from a band like us. Let's just say it has become more theatrical, more electronic, and just more catchy, as we have put all our focus on writing good songs and not being afraid of experimenting."[3]

Sons of the System sold roughly 600 copies in the United States after its first week of release.[4]
