Disturbed'sDavid Draimanhas begun talking about his new project,Device, whose self-titled album will be out April 9. He says that the album is done and features him, ex-FilterguitaristGeno Lenardoand a half-dozen guests:
Black SabbathbassistGeezer Butler
ex-Sabbath andDeep Purplesinger and bassistGlenn Hughes
Rage Against the MachineguitaristTom Morello
System of a DownsingerSerj Tankian
Avenged SevenfoldsingerM. Shadows
Halestorm'sLzzy Hale, who duets with him on a remake of theLita Ford-Ozzy Osbournesong "Close My Eyes Forever"
He says that Lenardo will not take part when the band hits the road this spring. The live lineup will be Draiman on vocals,VirusfromDope on guitar andWill HuntofEvanescenceon drums. Although Draiman initially touted the project as "industrial," it ended up having a wider range of styles than that -- although electronics is still a big part of the sound. So the live trio will be enhanced by sequenced backing tapes and devices triggered by both Virus and Hunt.
