Disturbed Planning Hiatus, Singer Speaks On Possible Break Up

Disturbed frontman David Draiman has been quite vocal as of late regarding the bands planned hiatus for the next year or two. When asked about the groups future plans earlier this month Draiman told Boise, Idaho radio station KQXR:

“…This is gonna be the last tour that the American people get to see us in for awhile, if not indefinitely. We have some things going on internally, we have some personal things going on. So I don’t know. It’s hard to tell . . . But you’re not gonna see a Disturbed tour for awhile.”

Since then Draiman has fielded a number of fan enquires as to their plans via his Twitter account. When asked when the bands next album was due, Draiman replied:

“NO IDEA. YOURE LUCKY YOU CAUGHT US THIS YEAR. WE WON’T BE TOURING NEXT YEAR, OR THE YEAR AFTER FOR THAT MATTER”

Meanwhile, when asked by a fan about the breakup rumors, Draiman offered:

“WE JUST DONT KNOW. ALL I CAN TELL YOU US THAT YOU CERTAINLY WON’T SEE US FOR QUITE A WHILE”

    Best unexpected news in months… Fucking months

  • theguilty1

    My favorite line…”YOURE LUCKY YOU CAUGHT US THIS YEAR”. No, YOU’RE lucky you’ve convinced a ridiculous number of gullible people that you make good music. Fair-fucking-well, dumbshits.

  • theguilty1

    *fare. I’m a dumbshit.

  • wearesorta138

    Always thought of them as a horrible rip off of Sevendust with really shitty vocals. Adios and enjoy the awful solo records before coming back to the cash cow in one or two years.

  • adamonfire

    They’re pretty good live, can’t say I listen to their recorded stuff much at all – I’ll most likely be catching them in a few weeks on Mayhem. Haters gonna hate.

  • veganbassist

    Haters gonna hate, but hate is well-due sometimes, as with this ridiculous gimmick band. Good riddance.

  • Aggroculture

    Best news of the day. Though I fear Draiman is merely trolling for attention.

    Disturbed breaking up! Amy Winehouse dead!! Oden is fucking shit up!!! BOUT TIME SIR!!! ALL HAIL TO ODEN!!

  • TheLoCoRaven

    Man, this last album was the only one since the first album that I liked. All the stuff inbetween sounded too similar with no variety in the vocals. Now they finally fix the issue and they’re done.

  • allichs

    @TheLoCoRaven, be careful bro. The PRP Hipster-Elitist Commando (TPHEC) is gonna beat your ass up for saying that.

  • Lifeseclipse

    What he is trying to say is, “Real Metal is reigning supreme right now and it’s not fair. We try our best to get up onstage and look tough, and stand in really badass threatening manners, and no one appreciates our art? That’s dumb. Anyways I have another job lined up, doing stunts for the Deal or no Deal TV show guy. When VH1 does their I love the 00′s show, then we’ll make our comeback.”

  • toeballlordjimmy

    I wonder the reason? Not that is matters tho i suppose. Maybe they finally realised that their best song and their worst song sound exactly the same.

  • Vujaa De

    the news to follow this will be pictures of Draiman’s bald fucking head rising out of the Jordan.

  • http://www.myspace.com/onkay stuckpig

    If I hear that haters gonna hate comment about one more shitty band, alas Limp Bizkit and Disturbed…I ain’t gonna do jack. I’m gonna buy an apple pie… Ben Weinmann from The Dillinger Escape Plan said it best when asked what he thought about Disturbed. He was recalling when they did a few shows with them a few years back. He was making fun of them so bad about how they were preparing their dumb and corny tough guy poses prior to getting on stage to “impress” the audience, lol…I mean, that says it all about who they are as individuals. Fucking pathetic.

  • adamonfire

    I don’t think anyone ever has thought they were “tough” – Drainman’s a 5’5″ ball of chunk. But I’m sure DEP had an amazing 20-minute set at 1pm.

  • tentonwolf

    Whlie I agree with most of whats being posted here I gotta say there are far worse bands than disturbed, at least musicaly they had talent. Draiman’s approach is typical of him being the little bitch and all but they put out a few decent albums. Personally I hold these guys higher than any of that puke-rock bullshit that ppl consider “amazing” ie: iwrestledabearonce, born of osiris, etc. Perfect examples of bands that could be amazing as an instramental group. To get back on track disturbed was ok despite the fact they were cookie-cutter from pretty much day one.

  • http://livingwellisthebestwhat.blogspot.com Obi-Juan Valdez

    Wow, a post with over twenty comments that ISN’T a Deftones or Limp Bizkit post. I almost forgot what it felt like.

  • adamonfire

    There was a Staind post that got close to 60 not too long ago.

  • jpmonster90

    Disturbed is the redneck band of choice. I’m surprised they were never sponsored by Naty Ice or Bud Light.

  • southpawchew

    Disturbed CDs are useless but they are sorta fun live.

  • adamonfire

    Yeah……. because rednecks drink Bud Light? That makes total sense.

  • HonoluluBlueBalls

    Yes adam, rednecks love schwag beer. Was his comment that hard to wrap your mind around?

  • adamonfire

    I’m guessing you’ve never left the state and been around actual rednecks, because if you’re considering Bud Light a “schwag” beer (simply using such a term with peer pretty much guarantees you’re a prick) you have some exploring to do.

  • noraad

    It’s about damn time. Now if only Nickelback, Seether and 5 Finger Death Punch followed suit.

  • adamonfire

    You’re grouping Seether with those other two? Srsly?

  • jpmonster90

    Fun Fact: Bud Light is the most sold beer in the US of A. And yes Adam, I have spent plenty of time on the road to know that Bud Light is the beer of choice by your typical redneck that lives south of the dixie line. If you traveled a bit you might know this as a fact. And if it ain’t then the common alternative is Coors Light, Naty Ice, Bud, MGD, or maybe JUST MAYBE Miller Light.

  • jpmonster90

    Now, I don’t think those beers are bad (except for naty ice). And I’m not suggesting people drink Corona’s or Heineken cause those I tend to consider the minority’s choice of beer lol. I’m just saying, drink real beer like Sam Adams or Dogfish lol.

  • noraad

    Yes, Adam. I sure am.

    P.S. – Fuck Bud Light. Dogfish rules.

  • adamonfire

    I moved back to Michigan last month after living in Texas for the past two years, so good try. Rednecks do not drink Bud Light – if they have a little bit of money in their pockets they go for Bud.

  • Rakasta

    Despite selling millions upon millions of records with his band, David Draiman will inevitably go down in history as the man who said; “Sometimes I actually get an erection when I perform on stage.”

  • SMF360

    The only problem I ever had with Disturbed was that they seriously lacked variety the longer their career went on. They had some pretty bangin songs though along the way so Ill give them a slight tip of the cap on the way out. To dismiss them as total garbage is ridiculous–but then again far too many of you on here are just that–so it goes hand in hand

  • Relentless_Beating

    When I saw Adams first stupid retard comment where he said “haters gonna hate” I just laughed cause of how much of an idiot the kid is, and decided not to point out his retardation, but then he has just kept going and going, Everytime you post on this board Adam, you bring all of our IQ’s down a notch. You are by far the stupidest poster on this site.

  • http://www.envymyhealth.com mjclementz

    I seemed to more or less dig every other album this band put out. They are pretty high octane live, as well. I won’t miss them horribly but I wouldn’t mind hearing from them again in a couple years. System of a Down is a more than adequate replacement for now. And forever.

  • noraad

    I’m sorry Adam, but Relentless has a point. Hicks most certainly drink Bud Light. Maybe not exclusively, but they tend to gravitate toward any light beer. Along with anyone with general bad taste, for that matter. And what are you getting at with Seether? Because all the aformentioned bands suck tremendously. If anyone tried to tell me that out of Nickelback, Seether, 5 Finger Death Punch and Disturbed, that one was better or worse than the other, I would immediately want to stab that person in the face repeatedly. They are all garbage on a level that is unfathomable. I guess what I’m trying to say is the people that enjoy those bands just so happen to love Bud Light.

  • http://www.myspace.com/undermineaustralia Bulletshock

    I admit that Disturbed are one of those bands that peaked with their debut album ( ala Static-X) but like tentonwolf said, there are plenty of other shithouse bands that are out there that are worse than Disturbed.

  • G Scotty

    Im not sure how to argue the bud/bud light thing. The way i see it, rednecks and nascar and full calorie budweiser seem to fit like a glove. but maybe they are moving towards bud light in a last ditch effort to save their fat asses from a heart attack. But cost aint the issue, they cost the same. Bud is champagne for special occasions. Every day consumption consists of 30-racks of swill. Adam Sucks. Disturbed Sucks. Good day.

    nooo all the good bands are splitting up! D:

  • robichaud1

    Heineken?! Fuck that shit! PABST BLUE RIBBON!!!

  • adamonfire

    @Relentless_Beating – what’s up bro, did the people not tip you enough last night at BD’s? I’m sure your Mongolian skills of amazing, don’t let them get you down – you’ll ace that University of Phoenix test, I know it.
    @noraad – hicks do not drink Bud Light, I’ve been around quite a few. Seether is far and away better than the entire group, and Disturbed is certainly better than the other two.

  • allichs

    americans having an argument about beer – ridiculous.

  • robichaud1

    I’d call it a discussion, personally.
    And uh – ahem – there’s at least one Canadian in here. Woot woot!

  • Livedefflo

    Disturbed wasn’t that bad. It did take me awhile to get used to them but I still remember banging my head to Down With the Sickness. No denying that. He’s a great vocalist. The musicians weren’t all that though.

  • helmetinthebush

    Rednecks in Canada generally drink the cheapest and most foul beer available, like Carling or Lakeport. While listening to Disturbed. I prefer Alexandre Keith’s or Rickard’s. While listening to Isis. Then I cry myself to sleep.

  • robichaud1

    Yeah, Carling’s nasty. I can’t stand Blue, even though it’s not a “discount” brand… “the good stuff” it is not. My cheap-o beer is usually Red Baron. When I’m feelin’ like a pinky-raiser, I dig the 60-minute Dogfish, Black Sheep Ale, and pretty much anything Beau’s. Can’t recommend Beau’s enough.

  • Relentless_Beating

    @adamonfire. Really? You’re going with the same comeback’s you tried last time? And you lower the IQ notch once more.

  • planetdeath

    I agree with @AGGROCULTURE…I call bluff

  • adamonfire

    @Relentless_Beating – why aren’t you wearing your Sam’s Club vest in your photo?

  • Relentless_Beating

    I don’t know what makes you so stupid, but it really works. Thumbs up!

  • adamonfire

    Master of comebacks, everybody ^

  • Relentless_Beating

    Yeah, cause you really are leading the pack here on this forum.

  • adamonfire

    Unlike you, that is not my goal. My goal is to find music news in regards to artists I enjoy across an array of genres and occasionally comment. Your M.O. appears to be a Lord of the Rings Hobbit that lives in his parent’s basement that attempts to sound pretentious and all-knowing but fails on every single front. Now check the Slurpee machine to make sure it isn’t leaking.

  • Soldier

    At last. One of the worst bands in history is history. It’s too bad they didn’t die in a freak accident though.

  • Soldier

    I’m gonna go with the majority on this one and dub adamonfire borderline if not a full fledged retard. Here’s to you mister thinks people give a shit what you think guy!

  • Relentless_Beating

    Again adam, we have already gone over our current working status a few months ago when you tried to put down a few people by using the fact you were in college for a degree. I use this forum to check up on bands that I enjoy, and find some new bands along the way. I also rarely comment on this forum. While you come on here and make stupid comments about DEP enjoying their 1 PM time slot, or how the Deftones are over rated. If you really wanna have a talk about musicians across an array of genre’s, I’d be more then happy to do so with you, but from having read you comments over the last few months, I feel it would be pointless. I like to use my knowledge of music to show others, not bash them over the head with how much more I know then they do.

  • Relentless_Beating

    @Soldier. I agree. Unfortunately the freak accidents only happen to good musicians.

  • Soldier

    True story. Take the Deftones for example… I still wish Chi would get better and be able to play with them again. I doubt it’ll ever happen though.

  • Relentless_Beating

    Exactly. Look at the singer from Decapitated, and the drummer. One’s dead, and the other is just like Chi. Both great musicians for their genre as well, and then there is the great Cliff Burton.

  • southpawchew

    Labatts suck, hate it buds alright for name brand got my fridge packed with a $70 case of 90 minute dog fish cause that’s how u roll lol

  • adamonfire

    DEP is not good at all. I’ve listened to their recorded stuff and seen them live – they’re as overrated as a non-popular band can be. I don’t listen to Disturbed’s recroded stuff, but they’re a way better live band than DEP will ever be. Seether beats the two on both fronts. Any “knowledge” you have about music is pure bullshit.

  • Relentless_Beating

    LMAO You saying Disturbed is better then DEP live is hilarious. You are absolutely a know nothing retard. Their EP “Irony is a dead scene” is hand’s down one of the best recordings to have ever been released, as is “Calculating Infinity”. But I guess most peoples knowledge on this site would be bullshit then, since you’re the all knowing god of music.

    -

    Remember everyone, DONT FEED THE TROLL (adamonfire)

  • tentonwolf

    @noraad- Lets not compartmentalize folks meow, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t like Seether’s first two records(disclaimer f’n rox) and honestly I didn’t feel completely raped buying most of Disturbed’s albums. Point being I’m not a redneck and light beer is not permitted to pass me lips. Give me Kilian’s or give me death!
    @adamonfire- Not trying to gang up on you dude, but…… DAMN!

  • http://www.facebook.com/built.to.grind American_Natemare

    For an overrated and non-popular band, they’ve done pretty well for themselves. They’ve done what they want, how they want for more then a decade without a major label or booking agent. But I guess without the sweet rock poses and fat dude swinging their t-shirts over their head while spilling beer all over the person sitting infront of them, they probably do suck.

  • adamonfire

    I call it like I see it, and DEP is certainly in the bottom 5% of the 200+ bands I’ve seen in regards to performance. I went in with a totally open mind and came away incredibly unimpressed – ala Andrew W.K. They need to watch some Enter Shikari footage to see how to perform. Unlike you, I don’t preach my opinion as gospel – but I could use some more water, so if you could refill the glass in a timely manner I’d appreciate it, boy.

  • Relentless_Beating

    See guys, you talk to a child, and you will get a childish answer in return. Maybe if you ask nicely, your mother will give you a cookie before she tucks you into tonight. Night little one.

  • noraad

    1. Enter Shikari is one of the worst bands I’ve ever heard. Not arguing, I truly think they are fantastic at sucking.
    2. DEP is great. I’ve seen them live. Irony and Calculating are incredible. One of the only “math/tech” bands worth anything, in my opinion.
    3. Disturbed sucks.
    4. Killians is colored Coors original(Seriously).
    5. Seether sucks.
    6. Hicks love Bud Light. There is actually a popular country song called “Pretty Good at Drinking Beer” which contains the lyrics, “I love the night life, I love my bud light.” I only know that because I work with hicks that listen to that shit. And they all love bud light. I rest my case.
    7. Amen, Soldier.
    8. Disturbed and Seether both suck really bad.
    9. Dogfish Head is amazing.
    10. RIP Amy Winehouse.

  • tentonwolf

    1. No one gives a fuck about rednecks as they will always be the bottom of the barrel in our society blah blah blah.
    2. Killian’s is its own thing, colored Coors original? Now I wonder if you’re a redneck seeing that you can’t taste the difference j.k. Killian’s IS the nectar of the Gods.
    3. Call me what you will but I’ve seen DEP twice live and tried many times to get into it but theres only a few tracks that don’t sound shtoopid to me(Think I prefer the original vocalist). Having said that they bust their asses and deliver(Music I don’t care for) with insane energy live.
    4. Must see what all this Dogfish Head hype is all about…

  • HonoluluBlueBalls

    Haha, this shit got out of hand fast. I’d like to thank everyone for making adam look like a complete fool while I was gone. To wrap up my final thoughts on the matter…I use the term schwag to describe bottom shelf beers not because I’m a prick (I am a prick, but that’s neither here nor there) but because it’s part of my vocabulary. I would refer to beers like Bell’s, Sam Adams, Fat Tire, Dogfish, etc. as dank. See how that works adam? Anyways, DEP and Deftones are two great bands that don’t get the credit they deserve. Disturbed and Seether are shit and have only reached their level of fame because people are generally stupid and will enjoy anything the radio force feeds them that includes distorted power chords and simple lyrics the average idiot can relate to. Good riddance Disturbed. You won’t be missed by anyone that matters.

  • HonoluluBlueBalls

    @tentonwolf, dogfish head is pretty tasty, but I would stay away from the 120 minute IPA, unless you like your beers to go down like a mixed drink. I believe the alcohol content of the 120 is around 12%. I’ve got friends that love it, but I definitely prefer the 60 or the 90.

  • adamonfire

    I’d like to hear more about the “complete fool” item you seem to believe, please tell me more.

  • Aggroculture

    No they are NOT pretty good live. They are fucking awful. They ruined the latest Music as a Weapon tour for playing so god damn long. This band has never been able to cut it live. Dave Draiman can’t sing for shit onstage: they cover everything up by playing loud, too loud and showing videogame images. But they just can’t play live. On record, in the studio, they pull off some decent meathead nu-metal: whole albums suck, but they have some decent songs. Apart from the live suckage, their other main problem is that pretty much all their songs sound the same.

  • ballsofmetal

    WTF? How is it that this is even a question? Rednecks love Bud Light/Budweiser and if not then it’s Coors Light, Naty Ice, etc.. It’s all the same shit. I have never gone to any social gathering of rednecks and them bust out with a 12pck of Sam Adams, Dogfish, Shipyard, Blue Moon, etc. Shit, I would shit myself if it was even Bud Light Golden Wheat or Killian Red. Oh and in the north like the north east/Canada it’s all Labat Blue or Molsen Ice from what I’ve seen.

  • Afghanistam

    If I can chime in on the bud light concencus. rednecks DO drink bud light. I literally, just 2 hours ago, got back to my home in seattle (micro brew capital of the country), from an army buddys wedding in Butt Fuck Egypt-North Dakota. great people and fun as hell… but total fucking rednecks. and guess what they drank the entire time. BUD LIGHT. not even kidding. an endless ocean of blue coolers stuffed with bud light. they see some shit at the store thats eye level and immediately snatch it up. bud light is disgusting.

  • Kent Brockman

    Wooaaah there, Balls. In Canada, we drink Rickards or Keiths. None of that Ice garbage, unless you’re homeless or a lost American. Craft breweries are fine too.

  • zomgpapi

    So nice to see so many fellow metalheads with great taste in beer!!!. I’m in Miami and I can’t tell you how fucking annoying it is to go to any kind of party down here cause 9 outa 10 times it’s all going to be Corona and Heineken. But lately, ever since Brewmasters aired on tv there’s been a take off in craft beer. It’s like people are starting to see the light and realize that if you honestly like the taste of beer then you would be picking up some Dogfish, Bluemoon, Sierra Nevada, Sam Adams or anything along those lines. Those beers are like the Opeth, Enslaved, Amon Amarth of beer. Sophisticated taste for more sophisticated people. Cause simple music (Disturbed), simple beer (Bud Light), are for simple pimple.

  • Livedefflo

    @Adamonfire @Relentless_Beating: Man you guys trip me out, you guys can go on and on and on and for what? We are all each entitled to our own opinions. If I say Disturbed destroys Metallica (which they don’t) then that is my own opinion. Why argue about music when absolutely noone is right or wrong? It’s like arguing for Jesus or something. What’s the point?

  • tentonwolf

    Can anyone deny the entertainment value that comes with it? It sure beats a crack habbit.

  • http://twitter.com/jayofdajungle jayofdajungle

    woah woah woah, lets keep crack out this

  • Relentless_Beating

    @Livedefflo. It’s not the opinion that adam shares that annoys people on this forum, it’s his stupid comments that follow after the opinion. I’m not sure how long you have been on here, but if its been a short time, you’ll eventually start to understand why he’s disliked. I barely comment on this forum, but his stupidity sometimes forces my hand.

  • http://twitter.com/jayofdajungle jayofdajungle

    Guinness all day for me…

  • http://twitter.com/jayofdajungle jayofdajungle

    Bud Light is the worst beer in the history of the world, they would have dollar bud and bud light at this bar I frequented while in college and I would wake up with the worst hangovers ever, though the blow might have had something to do with it.

  • MustardTiger

    ….as for the beer argument, fuck labatts. I live in Hamilton where Lakeport started out as an indie brewery. Don’t get me wrong, Lakeport tastes like outhouse water, but they had their beer at the lowest legal price and were stealing all the big breweries business here in Canada. What does labatts do? They buy it and shut it down causing hundreds of good paying jobs to be lost. I understand it’s just business, but fuck labatts. Also, disturbed sucks balls, but that’s just like my opinion man.

  • http://www.facebook.com/built.to.grind American_Natemare

    So, you stating that DEP is overrated is an opinion. Me stating they aren’t is preaching the gospel? Is the difference between the 2 that I don’t have a lame insult about you working at Taco Bell after it?

  • MustardTiger

    Another beer complaint I forgot to mention is a 30 pack of bud cans is on sale for 45 bucks here in Canada, but the same 30 pack is 18 bucks across the border. Wtf? We get raped by liquor taxes here.

  • Afghanistam

    hahah @jayjungle. the blow definately had something to do with it. I want to get all science-like and explain but it will be a tldr moment.

  • adamonfire

    @Relentless_Beating – Yep, keep being all butthurt and fluff with absolutely no substance what-so-ever. I’m sure it would be fun to have a debate, but really with your replies it’s like trying to play Jenga with Michael J. Fox.
    @American_Natemare – I wasn’t directing any comments at you, I typically just skip over everything you type.

  • Relentless_Beating

    LOL Butthurt? Spoken like the true troll you are. You are hands down the dumbest person to post on a forum ever, so it’s fun to see/point out your moronic point of view. When you have a group of people laughing at you, and calling you an idiot, it’s obvious that you’re the one with no substance, or you’d get a little more respect on this forum. Maybe you should move onto Blabbermouth.net, that site seems more your style, and leave the real musical talk for the adults. *Insert lame adamonfire insult here*.

  • Touchy McFeelers

    Jesus fucking Christ adamonfire, you’re worse than a hangnail, or your buddy’s girlfriend that you hate so much because she’s stealing him away from you. Your opinion is exactly that – your opinion. I’ve been reading your posts over the last few weeks and you make it a point to try and belittle the others here that challenge you. The funniest thing is that you take it personally. Your little quips make you look like nothing short of the school boy who would make himself look like the tough guy; only to get into pushing matches, and never throw the punch. Where I come from, you’re nothing but a poser. You’re all talk and no action. What have you ever done to contribute to a music scene? No dude, not a genre, a scene. Now before you go off on me and say, “I’m a student getting my degree….” Save it. I have my Bachelors, and a dual MBA. You’re not smarter than I am. PS – ‘what-so-ever’ isn’t a word. It’s not even fucking hyphenated. It’s ‘whatsoever’, and used in a sentence: “adamonfire isn’t into the opposite sex, whatsoever.”

  • Relentless_Beating

    And the winner of the “make adamonfire look like more of an idiot then he already does” goes to…….. TOUCHY MCFEELERS!!! Congrats, good sir.

  • The Shark™

    @Relentless_Beating – Thanks, although it wasn’t all me that was able to point out what adamonfire’s agenda is. I had some help from a blind man.

    Also, one last thing I forgot to mention to adamonfire. Your little joke in regards to Michael J. Fox’s Parkinsons Disease… That’s pretty funny, but not the way that true Christian boy such as yourself was raised. Shame on you. Maybe you should go yo confession and ask the Priest how many Hail Mary’s you need to recite for forgiveness. Bah, fuck it – we both know what’s next. As soon as the Priest hears your voice, he’ll say what he always does: “Now Adam, be a good boy. Get on your knees, and afterward I’ll give you a Coke and a Baby Ruth.”

  • Metalhead27

    Ok then. I haven’t been on here in a while. The Staind post is what got my attention, actually, but whatever. I’m not really a forum person, although technically this is isn’t really a forum. Enough back-story. So as a huge fan of Disturbed, this sucks a bit, but it’s understandable. They’ve been a busy band the last few years. A hiatus is fine, but hopefully they’ll be back. I do have to disagree with the whole “real metal is reigning supreme” or whatever. I personally think that it’s getting worse. Examples: “Bullet for my Valentine, Suicide Silence, Black Veil Brides…” Really? Hardcore and metal core are just rediculous. I know everyone thinks all of Disturbed’s songs sound the same (disagreement, but not the point) the point is, is that atleast they don’t sound like everyone else. The second stages at these festivals are complete crap. All of the bands just get up there and do the same guitar riff and drum beat as the band before them. To sum it up, it’s all stupid. I know I’ll be “put in my place” by elitists, but that’s my say on the matter. Opinions are opinions. As for the redneck thing, I’d say Mastodon is a perfect fit for that, not Disturbed. And why are Seether and Nickelback mentioned on here? I’m a fan of jokes, but only the funny ones. Hopefully Disturbed comes back with an awesome album soon. That is that. Yeah.

  • http://www.facebook.com/built.to.grind American_Natemare

    I’d say Mastodon is more for the stoners than the rednecks.

    @Relentless_Beating – so by your definition if more people believe it to be so, it is true? So more people disagree with me on this site that makes me incorrect? With that king of logic, Disturbed (or Limp Bizkit, or Korn, or Staind, or Saliva, or Seether, or Nickelback – especially Nickelback) are far superior to any band you listen to. Glad to hear American Idol is the best show ever. Once again, all fluff and void of logic.
    @Touchy McFeelers/The Shark™ – you had a decent thing going, but the second post just ruined you. It should be “Jump The Shark™” as your attempt to be humorous is as flat at Terri Schiavo in a high jump contest. It’s obvious you have not been reading my posts, or else you would realize the little Christian rant you went off on absolutely does not apply to me. What you’ve just said … is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    @ relentless Wow, I was totally onboard until you went straight ignorant w that list bro… Geez

    Finally.

    @adamonfire donkey dick, balls deep in your @$$ because your a beast…..eality fetishist, and when you cannot find donkey dicks, you refer to your mother, so she can go balls deep on you ;) have a great day, and i will not be hurt from any of your comments, what-so-ever.

  • Relentless_Beating

    I don’t think there is anymore questioning if you’re a retard or not, its official, you are. You are taking people’s agreeing that you’re an idiot, and comparing it to what people themselves enjoy? Makes no sense. I’m pretty sure fans of all genre’s of music can agree things that George W. Bush did/said where retarded, and made him an idiot. In this instance you would be playing the role of GWB. People having a personal preference on what they enjoy themselves as people doesn’t mean we can’t all agree you’re an ignorant fuck. By the way, good work on using exactly what I said about you, and your making us all dumber with your post’s, and using it on Touchy. Your slippin kiddo.

  • Relentless_Beating

    @scorpions: And what part of it is ignorant? Do you think I’m saying these are redneck exclusive bands, or what?

  • adamonfire

    @insanemusically – was that English?
    @Relentless_Beating – Please reread your entire post, reflect, and then hang your head in shame. Your wheels are doing nothing put spinning, and it’s about time you put that chair into gear for the Paralympics so you can try to go for the 1-2 200M sprint sweet with your Special Olympics gold. Still no direct response to my content, all you have is the nonsensical blabbing of a janitor – and you sir are no Good Will Hunting. Billy Madison is my favorite movie, so please get over yourself.

  • Relentless_Beating

    Forum, what we have here is a kid who has gone his whole life lacking attention, til now. If you can’t get how people agreeing one person is an idiot for what they say, Vs what people themselves enjoy in life, you are beyond lost.

  • insanemusically

    @adamonfire do you prefer donkey play ?

  • insanemusically

    what – so – ever

  • tentonwolf

    @adamvsdonkey- Making the handicap/disabled wisecracks is pretty low pal(Although when one considers the source its not suprising). Could that be your own self-loathing shining through?

  • insanemusically

    @tentonwolf — HAHAHAHAHAHAHA .. adamvsdonkey… the donkey always wins… balls deep.

  • Relentless_Beating

    Hahahaha oh man, adamvsdonkey. That made me laugh so hard I got a single tear in my eye. This thread is solid thanks to contributions of everyone who thinks Adam is a brain dead waste of sperm. Adam will always be the load that should have been swallowed.

  • insanemusically

    @relentless_beating … or shot on the sheets… whatever he’d prefer.

  • The Shark™

    Boy adamonfire, I’m fucking crushed. Truly I am. I think that your eCredit just went up a few points among the other keyboard warrior toolboxes that troll these forums. Are you talking to them on AIM? Skype? Which client do you use? I must know. Please post your handle(s) here so we can all jump in and have unworldly discussions about Christianity, making fun of the handicapped, etc. Sounds like a shitload of fun, doesn’t it? Offline discussions are so much better than these BBS-type threads. It’s very obvious that you’re Christian… and very conservative. Your “holier than thou” is a dead fucking give away. You’ve still got a lot to learn about how to troll effectively. Those that like trolling tend to do it from their parents basement, eating cold pizza and drinking warm Coke. There’s more to life than online, but what you fail to realize is that beyond this crap, Facebook, chat rooms and WoW, a real life exists. You shouldn’t be scared of it, because at some point you’ll have to face it. Besides myself, there are hundreds more on this forum that this coming after your first post here. It’s not a surprise, just predictable. And, as it’s well known among those that have been on the InterWebz for a while, the first rule of trolling is to try and blend in, not make predictable, bullshit posts that are too easy to separate from real posts. Bottom line, you still haven’t answered my question you little rascal. What have you done for a music scene? Ever?

  • scorpions

    @relentless- hey man I’m just saying I’ve never met any “metal” rednecks and I live out in the sticks of ohio… I really enjoy reading your comments… You say awesome shit in all your posts, I’ve just never been introduced to any bud light chugging chimaira fans… Maybe where you’re from… Just saying… My comments have been under enough scrutiny of “elitists” and trolls on the site… Keep up the good stuff

    @scorpions i live in Dayton, OH, and while Chimaira may be a long shot, I’ve met and/or worked with dudes into Disturbed and Five Finger Death Punch as much as they’re into Toby Keith. Usually seen in their flannel shirt with cutoff sleeves and ‘These Colors Don’t Run’ hat.

  • Relentless_Beating

    @scorpions: Yeah, it might just be a location thing. The rednecks up here in Canada (Or even across it) tend to love these bands. Being a massive Pantera fan, it rather bothers me. Even when I was on tour a few times in America, in the southern states I came across these types. Sitting in the back of their pick-ups outside the show, drinking their crap beer, and wearing their Chimaira shirts. They tend to love their nu-metal bands alot, which I think comes due to the fact these bands use the f word more then most. They can relate to that stuff it would seem.

  • scorpions

    You learn a little bit everyday : ) BEST thread on this site I’ve seen since I started coming here to find out what the Issues tracklist was going to be back in October 99′, when I was 15… You couldn’t pay for shit this good

  • http://www.facebook.com/built.to.grind American_Natemare

    I don’t think most of them are real rednecks like you find in Mississippi or Arkansas as much as they’re just living into the NASCAR style. Most of the ones I see around are very stereotypical. But redneck none the less. It’s aways nice when we get temps at work and I’m signing them in and some dude with dip in his lip tries talking to me about Staind to me because I’m wearing an Exhumed shirt. Obviously, 2 bands that are pretty similar.

  • adamonfire

    @Relentless_Beating – substance? Please? Just like your sex life, your posts are incredibly lacking. Jumping on the first post because I said which part, that they’re pretty good live or hates gonna hate? First one is an opinion in which I feel is valid, as I state in the other thread I didn’t care for them the first time I saw them and when I saw them again they were much improved. You are simply going to hate on the name because they are so popular. Ground-breaking? Absolutely not. Terrible? Not that either. You are just too hardcore and underground to appreciate that, I guess. Make sure the bathroom is spotless next time, okay?
    @The Shark™ – thanks for dedicating a half-hour of your life to that post. Totally got me, because I love both Skype and WoW – you sir, can read me like a book. The whole Christianity bit is gold, and really hurt me in the heart. I’m not quite sure what you’re fishing for in regards to “my contributions to the music scene” – whatever the fuck you consider that to be. Just because your band opened for Kittie doesn’t make you Mr. Music.

  • scorpions

    @nate – haha… I have those type of encounters frequently… That gave me a good chuckle…

  • Afghanistam

    longest thread EVER. buncha’ trollin’ goin’ on herre. this is like when you have a line of kids and the one in front wants to relay a message to the guy at the end of the line…and the original message gets all botched up by the time it gets to the back. thats what this thread is doing.

  • Relentless_Beating

    @adamonfire: Your posts are pure gold. Not in the fact that they’re good, but in how they are just down right idiotic. You try to make personal attacks on people without even knowing a single fact about them, and in doing so, you look like a moron. Well more like a moron then you already do, where as myself, and the others here are just plain laughing/attacking your posts for there so called “substance”. It’s funny that you’re talking down to The Shark for his post, when you do exactly the same thing. Making false accusations. But for some reason his seem alot more accurate then anything you have ever posted about someone on here in your pathetic attempt at personal attacks.
    -
    As for your lame attempt at somewhat of an actual conversation on Disturbed, you are wrong again. I don’t dislike Disturbed because they’re “popular”, I dislike Disturbed because they just don’t write very good music IMO. I don’t mind if people enjoy them though. Fully up to the individual in that instance. I like many bands that are far beyond the popularity level that Disturbed are. I’m not an elitist with my music. I like almost all genre’s of music, and own over 2000 CD’s. I refuse to limit myself.
    -
    But anyways, if you were as awesome as you seem to think you are, don’t you think these people would be attacking me, instead of attacking you? Or is it just that adam has the best opinion, and the rest of us just haven’t seen the light yet?

  • Relentless_Beating

    @scorpions: Damn we have been coming for about the same amount of time then, and probably for almost the same reason haha.
    -
    @Nate: Dude, Staind taught Exhumed everything they know man.

  • Bitter Old Man

    Holy shit…I definitely ain’t gonna be reading even half of the comments on here….just wanted to say way up towards the top my boy robichaud1 had the BEST response to the little girl named allichs that I’ve been wishing I thought of….allichs is always defending shit bands like these guys and LB by saying shit like “haters gonna hate”….well “suckers gonna suck”!!!!!!

  • Aggroculture

    I like Corona, sometimes Coors Light or even Bud Light. WTF is that shit with lime already in it? I don’t really drink beer. Perrier water is kind of like beer, without the alcohol.

  • The Shark™

    Really? 30 minutes you think it took me to write that? If by 30 you mean 10, then yes, that’s how long it took. I can type pretty fast, and I gotta tell you, it’s pretty teriffic! Remember Einstein, I work for a living. That being said, my mommy and daddy don’t buy me shit, unlike you. Regardless, it’s irrelevant. What is relevant though is your incessant crying. As far as contributing to any scene, it can be several things. Myself, I not only played in several local bands and toured a few times during summers in college, but I also helped make sure that one of the most famous punk clubs in Northern California continued to be able to put on shows. Have you ever heard of 924 Gilman Street in Berkeley, CA? It’s been around for long time, look it up. You’ll also probably find out that those that work there do in fact for free so the doors can continue to open, and in turn they put on amazing shows. It’s not all about metal or whatever, I grew up listening to punk, hardcore and metal. Maybe this will better clarify for you – giving back to a scene is making a contribution. Making stupid comments and acting like you know everything about music is not. That’s just idiotic, and you’re the sole star of the show. Congratulations, Adam. When you open up your mouth, you confirm what everyone is already thinking… You’re fucking retarded. Legally.

  • Surly

    ^I see you’ve been making quite the impression around here. You’re not the first to try your hand at being David attempting to topple Goliath. Anyway, generally, it’s good to see you’re keeping each other busy running your mouths at one another. It wouldn’t surprise me if you were all sitting there beating off your raging boners and salivating at the mouth whilst you type. ;-)

  • The Shark™

    Well, I only have two hands and I use them both to type. But your girlfriend is beating my raging boner as I type this :)

  • Surly

    Ah, so that’s where she is! The cheeky little minx. Lucky I have 3 hands then, hey?

  • The Shark™

    You have three hands? That’s fucked up, but cool at the same time I guess..? And yes, your old lady is a raging slut. She loves her Texas Hotplate with a side of blue veined meat rolls :D

  • Surly

    Sure, whatever floats your boat bro-town. -Don’t let me continue to interrupt your repartee with the gang. Enjoy!

  • The Shark™

    Good point, thanks. I think you’re just jealous of my Webstifer avatar, personally.

  • witness_of_wreckage

    disturbed can suck a nut dude….they shoulda broken up a long time ago…every song sounds the except same…sorry guys :)

  • insanemusically

    @adamvsdonkey — i found an old picture of you only posted with a chat you had with someone who knows music, why did you put your screen name as “stranger” though, i don’t really get it….. let me get that for you… and when you have time, may you autograph it for me :) thanksbro….

    p.s. i really like your blond hair.

    @The Shark™ – Actually, I created a festival that is largely based around music at my previous university. This previous year it featured a budget of $140,000 and had two outdoor stages dedicated to local acts and an additional stage for national acts inside the Coliseum. This was a one-time outside funding source as it has now made it onto the Student Services Matrix – there will be an event every fall with a budget of $155,000 and another event in the Spring with a budget of $133,000 (we didn’t even ask for this event, the Fall one was so popular surplus funds were dedicated to it). So in essense through my creation approximately $50k a year will go to individuals that work production, $200k will go to musicians, local acts will be spotlighted, and an entire University will have the opportunity to enjoy music and other attractions for free* (* = as they pay for it in their Student Services fees). Any more brain busters?

  • HoodooOperator

    The way I feel right now is pretty much the same way I felt when I found out that Candlebox was breaking up. Wait…..are they the same band?
