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.
