Ben Draiman

Newday Tuesday time again and this time we’re being a bit more mellow.

This one is bound to spark controversy because he is far from being as heavy as our usual recommendations.

As far as talent is concerned, however, Ben Draiman has it in spades, feeling none of the pressure that one would expect from having a megastar older brother.

His cover of Disturbed‘s “Stricken” has taken twitter by storm, notching up over 10,000 views on Youtube in under a week.

The cover is an incredible adaptation and interpretation of an iconic metal anthem.

It is Ben’s original material, however, which truly showcases his musical skills.

His debut EP “The Past Is Not Far Behind” comes from the heart, and the meaning and emotion he pours into his tracks is fantastic.

It is obvious then that the younger Draiman shares his brother’s talent for songwriting and invoking emotion through his songs.

The opening track “Soon Enough” brings home what one would usually expect from an old style ballad or an Evanescence track while still maintaining a heavy side as well.

Check him out and get behind this magnificent artist.

Don’t forget that if you’re in a breaking band looking for exposure, or friends with someone who is, you can always contact us via our facebook and twitter and by emailing
