I was ‘Disturbed’. Yeah, You heard it right. I was on a trip to Dandeli in Maharashtra and a friend of mine compelled, nagged, and forced all of us to hear a song, and I was the only one who finally gave in. Sometimes you hear a few random phrases during some random talk that “Whatever happens, happens for good”. I never actually gave much thought to these lines until that day. I was happy I gave in to his constant ‘nagging’ (At least that’s what I thought at that point of time, but now I truly understand why he asked us to). His constant nagging left me ‘Disturbed’.
All, those ‘Disturbed’ fans out there, I know you got what I am saying. For those who didn’t, this is how I got introduced to a band ‘Disturbed’. These guys stand apart, they are in a league of their own. When I heard their song for the first time, it was a completely new experience for me. And today after 10 years after that song was released, they have come up with ‘Remixed and Remastered’ as their 10th Anniversary Edition. And I am just waiting to grab a copy of it.
Down With the Sickness this song was the beginning for me and I never stopped after this. The first beat I heard and I was already in love with the music and the way the singer sings, I think no one can. That's his inbuilt beauty what he possess.
Fact o File:
The Band: Formed in 1996 when musicians Dan Donegan, Steve "Fuzz" Kmak, and Mike Wengren hired David Draiman as there lead singer. Before vocalist David Draiman joined Disturbed, they were known as Brawl, a band whose lineup consisted of vocalist Erich Awalt.
So the line up is:
Lead Singer : David Draiman
Guitarist : Dan Donegan
Dummer : Mike Wengren
Bassist : Steve "Fuzz" Kmak
After re-naming the band. They have released 4 albums and 5th one is on its way
1. The Sickness (1998–2000)
2. Believe (2001–2003)
3. Ten Thousand Fists (2004–2006)
4. Indestructible (2007–2009)
5. Decade of Disturbed, fifth studio album (Since 2010)
I am waiting for the 5th one and I want to get "Disturbed" again!
Their last album indestructible had an OST for the movie "Transformers : Revenge of the Fallen"
