Disturbed was formed in 1996 when musicians Dan Donegan, Steve Kmak, and Mike Wengren hired singer David Draiman in Chicago, Illinois. They have sold over 10 million albums worldwide, and released three consecutive #1 debuts. Originally classified as a nu metal band, Disturbed is now regarded as hard rock or heavy metal, although others now regard them as alternative metal. However, the band's genre is still being debated.

Early Days, The Sickness In their early years, Disturbed started recording several demos and played live shows. Not long after, in 2000, the band released their debut album, titled The Sickness, which launched the band into stardom. The song Down With the Sickness became extremely popular and was later used in many film soundtracks. Soon after the release of "The Sickness", Disturbed released a revamped cover version of "Stone Cold" Steve Austin's theme music for WWF called "Glass Shatters". Disturbed headlined the

Asylum is the popular American Nu Metal band Disturbed's fifth full-length studio album, it came out in 2010 on Reprise Records and was their final album before their hiatus and eventual reunion and sonic rejuvination. When this album first came out I gave it a miss and skipped over the album, having became a bit numb to the band or their charm but catching them live after their reunion warmed me to the much made-fun-of band again and I subsequently decided to see what I'd been missing.

Musically it is very much in the same direction as their usual formula. A lot of press at the time described it as a bit more elongated or progressive or mature, but basically, it sounds like a typical Disturbed album. The musicianship however has gotten stronger over the years with the drums getting more rhythmically complex and the guitar solos getting more masterful. Draiman's vocal ability gets stronger and stronger with each release. I'd argue the lyrics are also stronger than they were in the beginning.

Overall, on first impression, the album struck me as pretty decent. Not perfect, but still stronger than I had been hoping for. I guess reviews at the time from neutral parties were fairly positive but all I'd been reading or listening to was from people who didn't like the band to begin with really.

Disturbed have had a mixed history with cover songs, there was the very maligned 'Shout' but then there was the very successful 'Land Of Confusion' and five years after this album came the absolute smash hit in 'The Sound Of Silence.' On this record, they drop a U2 cover in the form of 'I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For' which for me doesn't really work and is nowhere near as strong as the original material. I guess its a hidden track technically but still, I could've lived without it. Personal taste issue. Not for me.

The aforementioned original material however is pretty interesting though. The lead single, the environmentally conscious 'Another Way To Die' is pretty damn catchy and memorable. The holocaust-themed 'Never Again' is arguably one of their best to date (pretty lucky really, you wouldn't want to fumble a song about such a serious subject). The title-track and the succinct 'Warrior' are typical but notably strong Disturbed fayer.

As with all of the band's records, there maybe aren't enough ideas to fill a whole full-length. There's a little bit of filler and not every single moment is an immortal classic. There's always about half an album's worth of stuff that would be rousing and welcome live and would fit in any Best Of album or Playlist, and there's always at least a quarter of the album that you overlook after the first few weeks. Asylum is no exception. I'd be lying to you if I said I loved every moment, or that there's no song from it I wouldn't want to see live.

What you do get on Asylum however, is another five or six really great Disturbed moments to add into the collection. Nothing to engage or convert non-fans and nothing to make you shout 'best Disturbed album ever!' but it is certainly a worthwhile and entertaining entry in their discography and not one that should be overlooked. 'Never Again' on its own is almost worth the price of admission. This is the band at their most practiced, developed, and perfected. At the height of their vocal and instrumental prowess, delivering another great bunch of songs. It isn't their best and doesn't have the raw charm of their earliest works or the renewed energy of their reunion album, but is certainly not a record that deserves to be forgotten or overlooked.

"Duh duh duh-duh-duh... Duh duh duh-duh... Oh wah-ah-ah-ah!!!"

Released in 2000, Disturbed's debut album came at just the right time as nu metal was creeping into the mainstream and making itself one of the biggest genres in the world (albeit, only briefly). With countless bands coming out of the woodwork and jumping on the bandwagon, only a few of them were able to transcend the sub-genre from which they came and become credible bands.

Disturbed are one of those bands.

You probably wouldn't have thought it back in the day, mind you. Musically this album fits right in with the nu metal fad. Heavy, groove-laden tracks, angst-ridden lyrics, de-tuned guitars with no solos in sight... So what set Disturbed apart from the rest?

With their hit single, 'Down With the Sickness' and it's legendary opening of "oh-wah-ah-ah-ah" that would go on to spawn countless internet memes, puns and pop-culture references, it was vocalist David Draiman's unique style that instantly gave the band their own identity. And it's stood the test of time, because Disturbed would go on to "oh-wah-ah-ah" their way to being one of metals most beloved bands.

Unfortunately, none of that was really all too evident in their debut release, as 'The Sickness', despite a few standout tracks, really suffers from the same mediocrity that a lot of groups suffered from back then. Sure, there's a few hits in here, 'Voices' is an absolute classic, and 'The Game', 'Fear', 'Meaning of Life' and the aforementioned 'Down With the Sickness' are all valid reasons for owning this record and really highlight the significance of Draiman's vocals. But then sadly, a lot of the other tracks just seem to be there to fill time, with special mention going to 'Conflict'... a song in which the word "enemy" (pronounced "en-na-may") is sung a staggering 52 times! Please, no more!

Overall 'The Sickness' is not a terrible record, it's just not really all that memorable either. Well produced and accompanied by a couple of hit singles, it did what it was meant to do and helped put Disturbed on the map.

"Oh wah-ah-ah-ah".

While Disturbed has never been a favorite of mine when it comes to twenty-first century metal acts, I've always felt like the band gets a bit too much flak from the metal community at large. Although their commercial sensibilities may irk the purists, Disturbed has a knack for creating memorable hooks and kick-ass riffs that should not go unnoticed. Indestructible was the first album I heard from Disturbed, and their fourth album overall - this observation keeps their previously established formula in tact, and while it's nothing revolutionary, Indestructible is a professional and highly enjoyable release.

Those familiar with Disturbed should immediately know what to expect from Indestructible; memorable hooks and masculine riffs are the name of the game here, and those who liked the band's previous albums should enjoy this one as well. Indestructible is a very modern sounding album that blends the sounds of alternative metal, nu-metal, and hard rock into a concoction that is both quite heavy and very accessible. The nu-metal influence has been toned down a bit here in favor of a more 'traditional' sounding metal approach, but this is still unmistakably Disturbed. David Draiman's vocals are 'gruff' sounding and powerful, and the riffs are also meaty and heavy - the band never allows this 'tough guy' mentality to overshadow memorable songwriting, though, and despite the heavy nature of the music, all of the compositions are instantly accessible. The fact that all of the songs are within the three to five minute range also proves that this is intended to be an easily approachable album, and while it may not allow Indestructible to feel like a particularly challenging listen, Disturbed succeed tremendously at this style of metal. Songs like “Indestructible”, “Enough”, and “The Night” are simply top-notch stuff, and although it may be a bit on the formulaic side, I always have a blast when I decide to take this one out for a spin.

Indestructible is one of those albums that makes you feel like a badass every time you have it on - the riffs are powerful, the vocals just reek of masculinity, and the choruses are memorable and anthemic. This may not be an album for all metal fans, but those who need a break from their typical diet of experimental post-blackened deathgrind may find a lot to enjoy here. Love them or hate them, there's a reason why Disturbed have become so popular over the past decade; this is simply high-quality stuff featuring top-notch musicianship, memorable compositions, and excellent production values. Indestructible is instantly recommendable to all fans of alternative metal.

"Believe" is the 2nd full-length studio album by US, Chicago, Illinois based alternative metal act Disturbed. The album was released through Reprise Records in September 2002. "Believe" debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart and the album turned out to be a major commercial success for the band selling close to 300.000 copies in the first week after it was released. By January 2003 the album had sold over 1 million copies.

...listening to the album it´s pretty obvious why "Believe" had such a major commercial potential. While it´s certainly heavy at places with chuggin` downtuned riffing and relatively aggressive vocals, the tracks are very easy to get into and appreciate. They are all build on a classic vers/chorus formula and seldom deviate from that form. Most are energetic (the closing ballad "Darkness" is the exception) and groove based but all without exception feature very melodic clean sung sing-along choruses. That´s exactly how you create a major commercial success and make sure that your songs are played on the radio and your videos are played on TV. Sing-along choruses is the key element to commercial success and "Believe" features plenty of those. Lead vocalist David Draiman has a voice that reminds me slightly of a raw sounding Scott Weiland from Stone Temple Pilots and some of the melody lines also resemble melody lines written by that act, but Draiman and Disturbed are generally much heavier and more "metal" than the Californians.

The tracks are generally very vocal driven and the riffs and rythms often become backing to the vocals instead of delivering memorable riffs and sections. This too is probably also a great part of their mainstream commercial success and I´d say their formula is closer to commercial hard rock than "regular" metal. Personally I find the tracks way too formulaic to keep me entertained for more than a couple of spins, but I fully understand why the band appeal to so many. "Believe" is certainly both well written, well played and well produced, so all ingredients are here for a succesful release. I´d say a 3.5 star (70%) rating is fair.

Today Disturbed dropped their Indestructible, their fourth studio album. The band had already promised a heavier, angrier album than anything we've heard from them to date, and in hearing lead singer David Draiman talk about the inspiration for the album (up to an including an old girlfriend's suicide, a fire that burned his garage and motorcycles, among other things), it's understandable where it's coming from. As someone who wasn't blown away by Ten Thousand Fists and still thinks Believe was the best Disturbed CD (and a sorely underappreciated album in general), I was simultaneously curious and excited to see where this darker turn would lead. After being amazed by leadoff single "Inside the Fire" and loving the album artwork, I was prepared to accept whatever else Disturbed offered up for Indestructible.

The album opens up with the title track, whose intro bears an uncanny resemblance to the beginning of Apocalypse Now (more specifically, The Doors' "The End). A rather appropriate way to lead things off. "Indestructible" is exactly the sort of "Eff You" anthem Disturbed likes to get things started off with. From there it goes into "Inside the Fire", which I still think might be the best Disturbed single of their career thus far. It's also one of the most traditionally metal things this band has ever written. Between this song and "Perfect Insanity", Disturbed's transformation from a early 00's nu-metal band into a respectable, true metal band is complete. Dan Donegan's guitar solos are incendiary, and drummer Mike Wengren has come into his own with this album, double-bass pedals and all. A number of times during my first listen of Indestructible, I had to ask myself, "Are these REALLY the same guys who scored a hit off 'Down With the Sickness'?"

That's not to say that Disturbed have totally reinvented themselves. "Criminal" still shows shades of something from The Sickness, and Draiman isn't afraid to go animal on us and unleash that absurd "Monkey from 28 Days Later" scream, only now it's better placed than in the past. Disturbed manage to successfully create an album that, albeit dark and heavy, stops short of being depressing. Overall the music here would fall into the category of metal, but it's not the stereotypical death metal that gets Christian groups all uppity. Think more Ozzy, less Morbid Angel.

(Full disclosure: I had to wikipedia a list of death metal bands to finish that analogy. Seeings how I don't listen to much of any of those, needed some help. Judge me all you want)

Without a doubt the best song on this album is "The Night". This track shows David Draiman at the absolute top of his game, getting into the higher reaches of his voice without it ever losing that raw edge that the song needs. The hooks are brilliant, and while it may not have the best potential for a hit single, is easily the most memorable song on the album behind "Inside the Fire". It, along with most of the rest of this album, would be an amazing experience to hear done live.

Indestructible is a 12-track long freight train of an album that gets its momentum from minute one and rarely stops to refuel. The complaints are in large part negligible, mostly just tracks and lyrics that don't stack up to the rest of the album. I'd like to see Disturbed play a bit more with track length; everything on this album hovers between 3:30 and 4:30, and I would love to see what they did with a quick sub-3 minute ballbuster or perhaps something more epic. But by the time "Facade" comes to its abrupt end to close the LP, Disturbed have done everything they set out to do with Indestructible, and most importantly, they've almost certainly pleased a number of fans.
