A Quick Tip by RabidChihuahua

  • May 4, 2012

I absolutely detest Disturbed.  They're horribly overrated and their music is among the worst the nu-metal genre has to offer. 

Despite the band's efforts in the last few years to appear more "mature" by adding in some half-assed guitar solos in their songs, their music is still watered-down MTV garbage that can be perfectly summed up as "metal music for people that don't like metal music."  Idiotic wigger singing, bland rhythm section, and cliche downtuned guitar chords with some dumb "beeping" sounds once in a while.  That's what Disturbed is made of.

Along with Kanye West, Disturbed is among the worst things to come from Chicago in terms of music.

You don't have to listen to Tampa death metal or Norwegian black metal in order to be a respectable metalhead, but at least stick with actual quality metal music if you want to get your metal fix, such as Iron Maiden, Slayer, Black Sabbath, Megadeth and so fourth.

About this band

Wiki

Formed: 1996 in Chicago, IL
Years Active: 90 's, 00's
Genre: ROCK

Heavy metal band Disturbed came together through the matching of a band with a singer. Longtime friends Dan Donegan (guitar), Mike Wengren (drums), and Fuzz (bass) played together in Chicago for some time before hooking up with singer David Draiman around 1997. Draiman had grown up in a religious family against which he rebelled, being expelled from five boarding schools in his adolescence. His anger found an outlet in the thrashing sound of Disturbed, and the band built up a following on Chicago's South Side before a demo tape led to their signing to Giant Records, which released their debut album, The Sickness, in March 2000. The band gained more fans and exposure playing the main stage of the 2001 Ozzfest, then breaking away to do their own self-described "victory lap" around the U.S. that fall. Also during this period, they managed to record a vicious new version of wrestler Steve Austin's theme song that was so good it managed to receive radio play, and they were one of the many bands announced to work on a high-profile Faith No More tribute album.

Disturbed stepped into the studio after stepping off of the road and began work on a new disc that would reflect their growth as a band. Feeling experimental, the bandmembers worked with producer Johnny K and mixer Andy Wallace in order to create an album that could compare to other classic metal records they admired.
