The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
Device is not Disturbed
It’s futuristic rock—that’s what David Draiman is saying about his new side project Device. In a statement the Disturbed front man says that fans shouldn’t expect his new project to sound anything like his past performances. He’s hooked up with Filter guitarist Geno Lenardo, so there’s gonna be some industrial influences the likes of Ministry and Nine Inch Nails. The forthcoming album will feature a slew of guest appearances including Avenge Sevenfold’s M. Shadows, System of a Down’s Serj Tankian, Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello, Halestorm’s Lizzy Hale, and others. The self title album hits store shelves in April, but the first single “Vilify” will be hitting rock radio sometime mid February.
Twisted Sister movie
There are plans in the works for a movie about the early years of Twisted Sister. It’s still unclear if the film will be a comedy, or if filmmakers are going to make a serious retrospective.
Taylor hypes comic books
Corey Taylor says that one of the best ways to convey his concept of the House of Gold and Bones series will be through the comic books. The Stone Sour front man says fans will soon get their hands on the four comic series that will tell the story through the emotions on characters faces. That in combination with the emotion portrayed in the music, the concept will tie together nicely. Taylor still hopes to bring the story to the silver screen in the near future, but that project is not solidified. He recently has been hyping the release of the second album of the series saying it will be darker and more melancholy than the first. The first comic book is due out April 17th around the same time the album House of Gold and Bones Part 2 is scheduled to be out.
