Disturbed Frontman Talks About "Land Of Confusion" Video

Launch Radio Networks reports: DISTURBED will shoot a video for its cover of the GENESIS hit "Land of Confusion" with Todd McFarlane directing. McFarlane, who also worked on the cover art for the band's latest album, "Ten Thousand Fists", has previously helmed clips for KORN and PEARL JAM. DISTURBED vocalist David Draiman told Launch what he likes about McFarlane's visual style. "It's very bitingly detailed, and very real," he said. "Todd habitually doesn't draw things that are overly pretty. He's really in touch with darker elements, he's really in touch with a lot of the attention to detail, even in the characters and the faces and the looks. He's got a very wide range of talent."

The memorable GENESIS video for "Land of Confusion" used eerie puppets in a political satire that poked fun at figures such as Ronald Reagan.

McFarlane told MTV.com that the DISTURBED version will show "a big view of the corporate world and how...the world is run by one giant thing, which is driven by greed and lust." The video is expected to be ready in June.

McFarlane is perhaps best known as the creator of the Spawn comics and toys. His McFarlane Toys has created action figures of comic characters, movie monsters, and musicians such as Ozzy Osbourne, Rob Zombie, Slash and Angus Young.

DISTURBED is slated to appear on the main stage of this summer's Ozzfest, which begins on July 1 in San Francisco.

Damn , They must be f***ing rich, that Todd Mcfarland isn't cheap. Man, you can make "THAT" kinda money from singing the same song 100 different ways. Hey Disturbed, Try singing and playing a few more chords than "Drop D". Oh but keep the "OH AHH AHH AHH AHH's" That gives closet Metal Heads something to do in their Camry's!! f***in' posers. Nah you know what at least they arn't listening to "Sean Paul".
Later b****es

First of all, I think it's drop C and second; you kids shouldn't talk about posers. Try playin' some bands songs with a guitar before you go b****in about 'em. All musicians out there who can make a listenable record by themselves are to be hailed. Disturbed isn't the first or the last band to make the same song trice. So let different flowers bloom and people enjoy them. You go ahead and enjoy something else. Ok? ;-)

this whole site is going to fukin heaven. how are any of these bands even on this site. Might as well call it metalmainstream.com. agree with post #3. and the cover art for that album looks cartoonish instead of "metal", it looks horrible for a todd mcfarland art, in my opinion. Ive seen much better from him. and Camry's are dependable cars a$$hole!!!jk
