During in a recent interview with Scuzz TV, Disturbed frontman David Draiman revealed his thoughts about their new album “Evolution”.
He explained that where does inspiration come from for the lyrics of the album. Here’s the statement:
“I have the benefit of being able to draw from Danny and from Mike [Wengren, drums] for lyrical inspiration. ‘Cause after you go ahead and… we’ve written, what? Well over a hundred songs; [I don’t know] the exact number.
But when you dwell in darkness, it’s kind of hard to continue to navigate it. I don’t wanna keep running over the same type of subject matter.
So when I kind of reach a brick wall as far as a theme that I wanna write about, I’ll go to Danny and I’ll go to Mike and I’m, like, ‘Feed me something. Feed me a topic. Feed me anything to get me started writing about something.’ Otherwise I go to all my regular spots, and they’re — to be perfectly honest — sometimes places that, from a thematic standpoint, I’ve visited.
And it’s not like we haven’t visited some of the subject matter on this record in previous records as well, but these are done in definitely a very different light. Taking current events and things that have transpired over the course of the past number of years into definite consideration.”
