Disturbed are globally recognized for their intense and creative heavy metal that hails from Chicago, Illinois. Most widely known for their hard hitting popular third studio album, Ten Thousand Fists, released in 2005. The record smashed the charts at a number-one spot on the Billboard 200, and sold a whoppinh 238,000 copies in the week following its release! A rare and groundbreaking response that has kept the band touring for years to come. The band toured with 10 Years and Ill Niño in support of the album. Disturbed headlined Ozzfest 2006 along with System of a Down, Lacuna Coil, DragonForce, Avenged Sevenfold, and Hatebreed.
The band comprises vocalist David Draiman, bassist John Moyer, guitarist Dan Donegan, and drummer Mike Wengren. Former band members are vocalist Erich Awalt and bassist Steve Kmak.
The group have carved themselves a natural sound like never heard before… "We probably have too much melody going on or we're not quite as turbulent or caustic. While I really love that type of music, it's not what we try to do. If we have to place things in context, we're more hard rock than heavy metal these days."
"The secret is that we were never really part of any particular trend, although we definitely benefited from the popularity of what was called nu-metal at the time … We never had the stereotypical attributes that those bands had. We don’t rap; there’s no turntable involved; no fusion in that respect. We play, in my opinion, classic metal. Sabbath, Maiden, Priest, Metallica, Pantera: these are the bands that made us want to play."
