The Dillinger Escape Plan Frontman Slams Disturbed, Initial Writing Sessions For DEP/Ex-Jane’s Addiction, Etc. Supergroup Complete

The Dillinger Escape Plan frontman Greg Puciato has certainly not warmed up to Disturbed over the years. A recent tweet from Puciato reads as follows:

“There’s a new Disturbed song caled “Hell“.Never has a level of irony been so high. Band name=fanbase. Song=where I’d rather be than hear it.”

In related news, there’s a bit of a mutual admiration society going on between The Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman and ex-Jane’s Addiciton bassist Eric Avery. Both of whom are participating in a new ‘supergroup’ with members of Mastodon and more.

The pair recently finished up a weeklong writing session together that was reportedly for the project. Weinman tweeted the following about that earlier today (October 05th):

“Thanks @ericavery for being 1 of the most interesting people, both musically and otherwise, I have had the pleasure to create with.”

Meanwhile, Avery tweeted:

“thanks b weinman for getting me in touch with the little inner prog rocker whos been lying dormant in me since my deeply stoned early teens.”

    • way to be a bit of a dick. I’ve always thought that it’s not right for artists to disrespect other artists, but I guess DEP is miles ahead of Disturbed musically anyway

        • Your sentence should be re-worked. Who, with half a brain about rock, hard rock or metal, listens to Disturbed? They somehow sell loads of records and sellout concerts.

    • i’ve got a younger cousin who’s 19 now, and when he was 10 or 11, he loved disturbed. told me how he loved that they were “heavy and crazy”, so i showed him 43% burnt thinking “there is no way this kid will be interested in this.” changed his life from that day forward. still likes dillinger, hates disturbed (and the like), and loves madball.

      I know what you’re saying, Dave, but there’s a difference between artists and designers. It does take creativity to think of the catchiest designs/commercials/ads. But the designer’s motive is to make dough by being as obnoxious, hip, and gimmicky as possible. To me, Disturbed is just a stupid fuckin’ Geico commercial trying to appeal to people who don’t know any better or have any idea what they’re really selling anyway. That, my friend, is a product.

        You basically hit the nail on the head. I have to admit I thought Sickness was a cool ass tune when it first came out. Although, I soon wisened up to how terrible they were and a still are. I always look at Disturbed fans as people who like heavy music but are brainwashed by popular radio so they think Disturbed’s the end all be all of what metal is. Fucking hilarious most of the time.

    • Bravo Greg.

      Never liked the D-urbs. Basically I think when Metallica was really shitting the bed for awhile, D-urb and Godswank filled the gap for either the Top 40-No Fear Sticker-Affliction wearing-frat boys who found metal, or the dudes who still think leather pants, The Crow and Hot Topic are the best things ever.

      DEP rules, even though my brain gets scrambled by their tunes sometimes.
