It's not dubstep
Disturbed’s front man David Draiman is working with the former guitarist of Filter to create what he says will be tunes in the vain of other industrial acts like Nine Inch Nails and Ministry. Draiman made the revelation when responding to a question via twitter. He was asked if it his new sound would be like dubstep and Draiman said “No, it's about as close to it as Nine Inch Nails or Ministry or Rammstein are. Industrial predates dubstep ... In other words, it is at all times a guitar-driven sound.” Draiman can work on new projects because Disturbed is on an open ended hiatus after pumping out a slew of chart topping albums and massive worldwide tours.
Fear Factory is getting closer to releasing their concept album The Industrialist. The band’s record label, Candlelight Records, has set a June 5th release date for the attempt. Front man Burton C. Bell says the album’s story is about an automaton “that is becoming sentient as it collects more memories with each passing day. Through observation and learning, it has gained the 'will to exist.'” Bell also says that he’s got sketches to go along with the scenes developed in the progression of the album. Lookin’ forward to that one!
Won't play ceremony
It’s now clear, at least to Slash, that Guns N’ Roses will not be playing at the upcoming Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. The April 14th ceremony in Cleveland will induct Guns N’ Roses, The Beastie Boys and The Red Hot Chili Peppers … just to name a few.
