The Draimanator

Once in a while, I’ll glare at the work box and wonder how the hell I got so many Disturbed tracks. Occasionally I’ll remember this:

Truth be told, I rather liked the Disturbed version of “Land of Confusion,” though this is not so much because it’s by Disturbed as it is the fact that Phil Collins doesn’t sing on it.

I think it’s mostly repeated exposure to David Draiman’s voice, both forceful and distinctive. And while the band writes most of its own stuff, their occasional cover demands my attention:

This band, apparently, is better than I’d been willing to admit.

(In regard to that Phil Collins dis, see also the Nonpoint cover of “In the Air Tonight.”)

    Whoah, that is quite a different cover of that song. Not all that familiar with Disturbed, will have to look up more of their oeuvre.

    Trying to figure out how the piercing on his chin works. It looks painful.

    They’re a fairly traditional metal band, though they’re quite capable of throwing a curve to the listeners. Draiman has one of the most easily recognizable voices in metal, and he works it hard.
