What did you do? blocking someone doesn't sound like a Draiman thing to do. He seems really down to earth and relaxed in interviews.

That's hilarious! Draiman actually giving a shit about another twitterer? Guess he can't take flak or criticism. Either ways, always thought he was a boob. Ohhhh Ahh-Ahh-Ahhhhhh.

Ok, I just saw his twitter. And Awblasters conversation. Jesus, David sure likes that caps button, doesn't he?

I said "I <3 how @DAVIDMDRAIMAN describes himself as "ENTREPRENEUR, POLITICAL SCIENTIST" before mentioning the only reason people know him" to a mate of mine. Dick move by myself, but I am a dick.

He responds with (all in response to that one tweet):

"IT'S NOT ABOUT HOW PEOPLE KNOW ME, IT'S ABOUT HOW I KNOW MYSELF. IT'S NOT AN ADVERTISEMENT. IT'S ABOUT WHAT IM MADE OF"

"SAD THAT YOU THINK THAT IT'S SOME CHEAP FORM OF SELF PROMOTION, TYPICAL"

"I WONDER IF A TROLL LIKE YOURSELF HAS EVER LOOKED IN THE MIRROR, DO YOU KNOW YOURSELF? ASS."

"GOODBYE LOOSER"

And then when my mate asks for some evidence of his political science credentials, he starts getting incredibly defensive, before blocking him as well.

Draiman is the most entertaining person on twitter.

Haha, 'looser' it seems. I can't imagine how any of those 87k followers bear this crap he spews out...especially with the capslock on.

From Disturbed's own personal wiki: Draiman then triple majored in Business Administration, Philosophy, and Political Science at Loyola University Chicago and seriously thought about going to law school before joining the band.

So he did study political science. But he never did something with it. And he seriously thought about going to law school.

Anneke Van Giersbergen is playing London in April, even if only as support for Pain of Salvation. 2013 in gigs is just looking better and better for me :D

Because it's a genre made up of a single element of brutal death metal, technically it's simply using a BDM technique more extensively, although I myself would say that slam is worthy of it's own genre tag.

I agree, but then the site considers raw black metal as a genre. A lot of the bands in that genre are just using a technique found in black metal (simplistic power chords tremolo picking) and simply applying more lo-fi production. Then there are bands like Epicardiectomy and Cephalotripsy that are just pure slam and can hardly be considered brutal death metal. I don't know, just food for thought.


I agree completely, I was more just saying why MA would likely not include it. I guess defining the border would be a challenge, Obviously Short Bus Pile Up and Cepahalotripsy are slam through and through, but then when you try to factor in stuff like Katalepsy's newest things get a bit harder. Exactly what percentage of slams would be needed for a band to go from a BDM which is slammy, to being genuine slam?

I was immediately able to imagine all of those as lyrics in any given Disturbed song. "It'snotabouthowpeopleknoooow me! It'sabouthow IIIII knowmyself! It'snotanadvertisment,it'saboutwhatI'm maaaaaaaaaaade ooooooof."

Fuck, memories of working at Jimmy John's when I was in college and that's ALL our manager would play when it was his turn to run his iPod through the store speakers.

Guh .. Venenum crushes.

Crown of Reversion

Been listening to them off and on the past few days, what I can scrounge on youtube. Way to kick a whole lot of ass, guys. You'll be getting a few cuts of reconstituted money from me soon.

They made quite an impact for only having released less than half an hour of music yet. Aside from being awesome, do they have marketing degrees or something?

You guys might also like ZOM. Similar cryptic atmosphere and production, though not quite as grotto-sorcerous in aspect.

Haha, I remember that guy from a long time ago. His tone and tremolo picking sound devastating.

I don't get why Ram It Down gets so much hate. Yeah it's not fantastic or anything, but it's far fro the worst Priest album. The opening track especially is killer.

Man, I have been suffering from some serious lethargy. It has taken me so much effort to actually do anything of worth lately. The motivation/inspiration just hasn't been there, and every time I try to make myself change for the better, every fabric of my will has fought it to the death. I just... don't know right now.

Also, come to think of it, he's like SLK on steroids :D

He's been claiming that he doesn't use steroids for quite a while.

I suppose if you maintain the same intense routine every single day for 6+ years, you can look like that but I'm still not sure if I believe him.

Edit
Dude fucking rips though, on guitar and with the weights.

You must first consult the high council of Elrond with a representative of each race for it's approval.
