Warm up your neck muscles before playing this album. That album, would be the newest release from Disturbed - Immortalized.
Hard riffs, double bass pedalling, and David Draiman's distorted and percussive voice, makes for an instant headbanging hit.
This heavy metal band never ceases to amaze.
Did you know that most of the songs are in fact written by the lead singer, David? Including the very well knows 'Down With The Sickness' and 'Indestructable'? Pretty impressive if you ask me. Don't get me wrong, it isn't on the same page as the lyrics to 'Stairway to Heaven', but you really do feel the emotion in the various songs that Disturbed performs.
Track 5 on the album, The Light, is more along the lines of a ballad in the beginning, and then Disturbed does what they do best, change it up out of nowhere and you are left in awe. There is almost an electronic feel to it.
Track 7 starts off with a very Portishead tone, then the very well known Disturbed guitar drops in for a visit.
This album is fantastic. At 00:10 on Track 10, they smoke a bong during the intro of their song.
Track 10 is a real treat, but me telling you more would ruin the surprise.
I love this band.
