DISTURBED To 'Reinvent' Themselves On Upcoming CD

DISTURBED frontman David Draiman recently spoke to MTV.com about the recording process for their third album, tentatively due early summer.

"It's been a process, man," he said. "We don't want this one to sound anything like what we've done, and it's always hard to reinvent yourself and come up with something that doesn't borrow elements from what you've already created. It can be very taxing."

Draiman insists DISTURBED's still-untitled new record is their angriest, most unrepentant offering to date. It's equally energized by feelings of betrayal, frustration and alienation.

"The lyrics push in many different directions, but they're united in their anger," the singer said. "For example, 'Hell' is about a relationship with someone who keeps coming in and out of your life, and every time they come back they f--- up your whole world. 'Decadence' is about how difficult it is to live a decadent lifestyle, the effect it has on you and what it does to your soul. They're different ... but they're both really pissed off."

So far, DISTURBED have finished 13 tracks. They plan to record seven more and select 13 for the final cut.

One track that has been confirmed is a cover of GENESIS' '80s pop classic "Land of Confusion". The song seems like a strange choice in contrast to the relentless barrage of the other tracks, and it contradicts a claim Draiman made after DISTURBED covered TEARS FOR FEARS' "Shout" on their debut.

"I know I said I would never do another cover, but I guess I lied," the singer said. "Just wait until you hear it. We took the synth beat out and riffed it up and chunked it up so it's heavy as f---. Basically, we took all the pop out, and what's cool is that the lyrics are so appropriate for today's times."
