This is the side project with Disturbed's David Draiman. Their first album just came out (http://www.amazon.com/Device/dp/B00BG59OIM) ...what do you think? It has a lot of guest appearances, by Lzzy Hale (Halestorm) Serj Tankian (SoaD) etc and a cover of "Close My Eyes Forever."

I would actually have been quite enjoying this album, so far. If I were to describe its character, it would almost certainly include the perhaps inevitable comparison to Disturbed, yet as a slower-paced and more certain, if not more plodding interpretation from earlier in their discography; with a return to the heavier beats and bass, rather than the more intricate musical threads with which the theme of Disturbed's more recent releases have come to be woven.

It is perhaps of surprise that so few of those who might be considered fans of the genre, if not of Disturbed themselves would be aware of the album's release, or even the existence of Device as something of a side-project for Draiman.

That said, I would wonder whether this more subtle release may have been intentional - in that it thereby allows the audience to discover the music of Device, and consider it upon its own merits, rather than simply as an extension of Disturbed.
