Disturbed frontman David Draiman recently discussed the work with his latest project Device, also reaching an interesting subject of seeing his wife walking around naked on the video set.
According to singer, the band has been working extra hard to prove the world that they mean business. Draiman also pointed out that people have no choice but to take the band seriously once they see them perform on stage.
"I think that people have no choice but to take us seriously when they see us play live," frontman told the Gauntlet. "We're serious as a heart attack dude. We're a power trio from hell and we bring it."
The chat continued with Draiman commenting on how he separates Disturbed from Device, describing it as a rather simple matter.
"My voice is my voice and I'm always gonna sound like David Draiman," the singer said. "And David Draiman sounds like Disturbed. If you take Corey Taylor out of Slipknot he still sounds like Corey Taylor; if you take Maynard James Keenan out of Tool he still sounds like Maynard James Keenan. If Bono left U2 for a minute, or went to do his own thing, he'd still sound like Bono. We all have very easily identifiable and recognizable voices, it's just the way it is."
As for the part about Draiman watching his wife nude on the video set, the subject was reached while discussing the group's video "Vilify" in which the singer's wife Lena Yada appears as an android.
"I tried to discourage her from doing it," Draiman said. "I didn't know how comfortable I'd be with my wife walking around naked with a bunch of guys around body painted. I kinda sucked it up."
Device have released their self-titled debut back in the early April via Warner Bros. Records. The record featured special guest appearances from such music icons as Black Sabbath's Geezer Butler, bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes or Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine. After its release, "Device" debuted at No. 11 on the Billboard 200 chart.
