Disturbed hiatus blamed on disturbed music industry

Music industry, on behalf of everyone at Dose Of Metal, we thank you for this. We feel like winners of the “Make A Wish Foundation,” only we’re not dying of cancer. And if you thought that joke was in poor taste, it’s actually quite tame when you compare it to this:

Three terminally ill cancer patients are talking to each other. Someone asks: “Guys, what would you like your friends and relatives to say about you at your funeral?” — The first guy says “That I was a great, fun-loving guy who loved everyone.” The second guy says “That I was a wonderful husband, wonderful father and great at my job.”  The third guy says “I’d like to hear them say ‘Holy shit, he’s moving!!!'”.

So yeah, Disturbed frontman David “Uhhh-ah-ah-ah-ah” Draiman talked about his band’s hiatus, and apparently it’s the music industry’s fault. So all these years of illegal downloads finally paid off, huh?

Many of those reasons are have to do with the state of the music industry in general and, you know, the demise of hard rock and heavy metal right now, and I think it’s just a good time for Disturbed, after 10 to 12 years straight of touring, to go away for a little while and kind of wait for the phoenix to rise from the ashes here. […] It’s frightening times right now, and it’s just a good time for us to go away.

To be honest, I don’t like Disturbed so I don’t care, but it’s really sad to see what’s popular these days and how awful everything else is doing.
