David Draiman Talks About New Disturbed Album

DISTURBED frontman David Draiman recently told Launch Radio Networks that the overriding emotion on the band's upcoming third album is anger. "A lot of the songs on this record, they seem to fall into one of two categories: they're either relationship-oriented and from an angry standpoint, or they're politically oriented from an angry standpoint. It seems to be either one of those two veins," he explained.

Songtitles set to appear on the still-untitled CD include "Hell", "Decadence", "Monster", "10,000 Fists" and "Deify". The band has recorded 13 tracks, including a cover of "Land Of Confusion", the 1986 pop hit by GENESIS. DISTURBED's only other cover, "Shout" by TEARS FOR FEARS, appeared on the band's 2000 debut disc, "The Sickness", after which singer David Draiman said the band would not record any more remakes. But Draiman recently told MTV.com, "I know I said I would never do another cover, but I guess I lied. Just wait until you hear it. We took the synth beat out and riffed it up and chunked it up so it's heavy as f***. Basically, we took all the pop out, and what's cool is that the lyrics are so appropriate for today's times."

That isn't their only cover other than "Shout" They covered Metallica's "Fade to Black" on their Music as a Weapon II tour last year. But that cover never made it to a studio album.

If you consider Metallica "nu-Metal" you have issues. Without Metallica you wouldn't have any of those bands.

Although the Clincher is a good song.

Shinedown to an extent, Submersed's one song (Hollow) and Future Leaders of America.
