DISTURBED‘s frontman David Draiman shared his thoughts on FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH. The singer also spoke about SOAD and RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE.
David Draiman, the actual name David Michael Draiman, was born in 1973 in New York. The lead vocalist of American heavy metal music band DISTURBED, he is also among the best metal vocalists of all time. The DISTURBED band was founded in 1994, disbanded in 2011, but they returned with the single “Immortalized” in 2015, then released the album “Evolution” in 2018.
During the David Draiman recently interview to The That Jamieson Show, he talked about the break of the group DISTURBED, SYSTEM OF A DOWN, and RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE.
He thinks the idea of the group taking a break is a pretty dangerous idea, but it works. Because, as we know it, many bands could not regain their former popularity after taking a break from their careers. David says sometimes the best-laid plans of mice and men actually work out for this decision.
He cites SOAD and RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE as examples of groups that come back and regain their popularity after a break. He says the following;
“But you know what? It doesn’t always work out that way. I mean, it worked out for us, it worked out for Rage [Against the Machine]; worked out for System.
A lot of bands took long hiatuses and came back bigger. It works out occasionally but then again, you also have bands like, let’s say FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, for example, who pound the pavement and put out record after record.”
David appreciates the work and effort of FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and thinks it is very difficult to have the strength and determination they have.
David thinks FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH has created a huge empire and deserved this popularity. He says that their job is very difficult and requires a lot of effort. In these words, David talks about the members who left the group and the problems the group had.
“To be honest, I don’t know that I have the strength in me to do what they do, as often as they do, as consistent as they do. God bless them! I actually look up to them for that.”
