Mentally Disturbed

Dan Donegan wonders what's nü-metal about his band

"David's getting pretty good at handling what I can throw at him. After being out on the road for two years, his range has expanded and he has better dynamics," Donegan says of Draiman, who has come quite a way from his signature monkey-boy noises on the first record. This time, he even has relevant things to say.

When the Scuds flew during the first Gulf war, Draiman, raised an Orthodox Jew in an über-strict upbringing, feared for his brother and other relatives living in Israel. The Arab-Israeli conflict, and now Gulf War II, has only intensified his apprehensions.

In "Liberate," Draiman closes with something close to his heart: "Out of Zion shall come forth the law and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. Nation shall not raise sword against nation, and they shall not learn war anymore, for the mouth of the Lord has spoken."
