Disturbed Asylum


Disturbed is one successful Metal band. The recent Muse Magazine cover-boys have been at it for a decade and their formula of powerful music has proven to be a very effective one as their album sales and top chart positions profess.
Reflecting the madness of the world we live in is a Metal staple and Disturbed hits it here with all cylinders, David Draiman’s highly competent vocals its driving force. The vocalist has become the band’s identity to a greater extent in that the homogenous guitar sound of so many bands nowadays make it difficult to identify it as one particular group (an example here being the track Another Way To Die with that Slipknot guitar sound). The steady-paced groove is only really jacked up in one of the 12 songs (plus hidden track). Even though the album complies on all levels from song construction and production, to execution and sleeve design, it does feel a bit like more of the same – which is not necessarily a bad thing if that’s exactly what you’re craving.

In the Asylum box you get the bonus of a key code for the free download of the one-hour documentary Decade Of Disturbed.
