Device Drops ‘Vilify’

Disturbed has long been my favorite band. David Draiman and I don’t politically agree on everything, but he’s far more open to opposing ideas than liberals are (he considers himself a libertarian) – and he’s defiantly Jewish. His pulse-pounding “Never Again” calls out Holocaust deniers and the music written by Dan Donegan, Mike Wengren and John Moyer brings that message to a stage that no metal band has ever explored before.

I like all different kinds of music (with the distinct and strong exception of rap), but Disturbed is definitely my favorite. With Disturbed on hiatus, Draiman moved to Austin, TX (soon to be my home, so I’m excited) and started up a side project with former Filter guitarist Geno Leonardo. The project is called Device, and the first single dropped on February 19. I’ve been so busy with work that I didn’t even notice until last week.

Leonardo’s opening riff is definitely reminiscent of Filter, but the rest of the song seems to be a mesh of Nine Inch Nails and A Perfect Circle – with Draiman’s signature vocals making it an industrial rock sound that is actually melodic. If you like hard rock, you’ll like Device. Lyrically, I love it; my favorite line comes from the first verse: “go find another lapdog, f—er!”

It should come as no surprise that I’m now claiming this song as my official response to gay leftists who publicly call me a self-loathing closet case and a traitor, while in private wishing for me to commit suicide or sending me a death threat.

  1. Thank you Mel for this post and all your posts. I appreciate people like you who have the guts to stand up for your principles and back up what you say.

  2. Yes.. i also am of fan of Disturbed ever since 2001 to be exact. David’s new group is pretty good.I do like the video and the lyrics.

    And i feel the same way when is comes to the gay leftests, I just want to say ” F You All” as well. I can’t stand it when they assume that if your gay you’re a liberal and that you agree with gay rights and gay marriage.. and when you tell them that you don’t agree with gay marriage well then you’re against us or a traitor. They hate you and they won’t even talk to you again. As for being called a self loathing closet.. i haven’t been called that yet, but i am sure my gay/straight liberal friends are thinking it.
