  Can't wait, listened to the song Asylum on youtube and it sounded great

  Ive never heard Disturbed before, although Ive been aware of the band for years. I just listened to the title track of their latest album, and Im a bit surprised. For some reason, I always imagined they'd sound like nu metal, and ''Asylum'' is nothing like that. lol The song was pretty good, although it could have done with a solo, or the chorus not being repeated so much. But anyways, not bad at all!

Can anyone tell me if this song's sound is typical of their other stuff or not?

Disturbed is a special band every song is like another world, if you enter in the lyrics you will forget that you are listening music its like youre living the music, i don't think they have songs that sound the same.

Disturbed is the music itself and music is life itself

I don't like nu metal normally, but I really liked their last album and I strongly recommend you to check it out. The new song is weaker than average imo, but after seeing the video of it, I think I've changed my mind a bit At least the lyrics of this song is of substance.

This is late, but their stuff beforehand is pretty much boring nu/"alternative" metal. This one is sort of a different direction, yet still not particularly great, IMO.
Ag Fox - 28.08.2010 at 01:14  
Rating: 6 I'm very disappointed with "Asylum". I really liked "Indestructible" too...

The Single is probably the best song here and admittedly, there are moments worth mentioning here and there, but there's more uninspired sounding moments too >: Seems like their efforts on solos is not very good

Out of the (now) 5 albums, only their first album is nu-metal. The rest are hard rock/heavy metal, and the last one is entirely heavy metal with solos and everything that goes with it (why am I saying this? You ain't gonna hear a solo in nu-metal, that's why). Of course, most people who bash them are not aware of this fact, for the sole reason because they didn't even have the decency to check out the music they so joyfully take a crap on...pardon my rant here.

As I was saying, try their latest addition Indestructible, you might be surprised.
Angelic Storm - 28.08.2010 at 02:55  
  Well, I dont hate nu metal as a genre, although most bands in that genre aren't very good IMO.

Okay, Foxy and Kennoth, I'll give Indestructible a go. lol
vezzy - 28.08.2010 at 13:42  
Rating: 5 Just because it has some basic solos/harmonies doesn't suddenly make it better. I've heard some songs from Believe, they're pretty much modern rock/hard rock. Nothing particularly "heavy metal" in it. Besides the standard solos/harmonies at times (I think the title track even lacked one), it was mostly bland chugging/simple distorted chord riffs, then faded with a buzz to make it softer in the choruses.

"Ten Thousand Fists" (the song) was pretty much the same, only a bit more energy in it, which is good, I guess, but still predominantly hard rock. Lots of distortion to make it seem heavier. "Stricken" had that slightly groovy hard rock/metal riff, but not spectacular in any way. When the vocals and broken chugging comes in, it begins to lose it. Decent solo though.

I've heard about four songs off Indestructible, including the bad title track and that damned "Inside the Fire". Heard the two songs "Asylum" and "Another Way to Die" off the upcoming album too (probably leaked?). Same formula, different guitar tone.

Rating: 7 I think it's definitely better than Indestructible. Indestructible, to me, seemed very uninspired, slow, and very boring; Asylum, on the other hand, restores Disturbed's groove and vigor. Although I don't think it's as good as Believe (Their best work, imo), Asylum sets them in the right direction.

Agreed. It was a blend between the power of "Indestructible" & the atmosphere of "Believe". Asylum was the best song. Never Again & Innocence was great. Warrior, Another Way To Die & Serpentine was ok...

To me, "Indestructible" still their best work.

VeryRattlehead, am not a fan boy but I quite enjoy this album...
Anyhow, just on the performance of the bass alone on this album, and u being a bassist, u'll have to agree with me that the album deserves atleast a 6..
And i'll say it again..the groove on this album is really good. I like it!
vezzy - 02.09.2010 at 12:42  
Rating: 5 Bass work is fine, but generally the album isn't good. It reuses the same elements Disturbed always reuses. Standard as always.

I'm not a fan of groove in most cases, except Exhorder and maybe some other stuff. Most of the time it doesn't sound at all vivid and rather one-dimensional.
Whoblehwah - 08.09.2010 at 23:45  
Rating: 5 Eh.... this albums ok. Really its just more of Disturbed being Disturbed. I don't really think its bad, but at the same time I probably won't be listening to it much either. The only reason I have it in my iTunes is because my friend bought it. If it wasn't for that I probably would've just ignored it.
Sephiros7 - 14.09.2010 at 22:19  
Rating: 7 I've never been a fan of Disturbed at all. I tend to lead more towards progressive stuff, or on the hard rock / metal scene stuff like Metallica / Avenged SEvenfold. When I booked tickets for the show in irvine for the 17th (coming up this friday!) months back I was excited to see some of the other talent there. Seeing as how Disturbed will be there with A7X co-headlining the show I gave disturbed's stuff a shot. The first album in my opinion is absolutely terrible. Now I hate when people insult music or say it's "bad" cause it's all opinion, but in my opinion the first album is just unbearably boring. Totally "nu - metal" trendy radio overpolish etc. (Not trying to bash just being honest!) I listened tot heir discography to be fair and I noticed the albums progressively got better but not by much. To me, and I really listened to them a few times through on each album with an unbiased ear, their stuff really sounds very much the same on each album. I'm not trying to be the grandma that says "that stuff all sounds the same!" but it's just like a steady beat of the drums synced to the guitarist, hats off to their ability to play together so well. But it just sounds so "the same" from song to song. And the singer's voice is less than stellar. Almost feels like they got famous from the "Oh ah ah ah ah" song / style of singing. And now he's trying to branch out from that but it's just...less than stellar singing with lackluster guitars / drum fills / solos. In the world of mainstream and popular bands they are definitely better than your average (Not nearly as Good as avenged sevenfold though, not by a longshot, but hey that's just my opinion)

It's going to be weird at the show seeing A7X with their technical prowess and Portnoy on drums to the simpler sounding disturbed. They should have had Disturbed out before A7X.

As I write this review I'm listening to Asylum, and don't get me wrong I think it's a fantastic album, as well as indestructable. But I think paying close attention right now the thing that bugs me is the use of the bass drum being always synced to the guitar. This album is pretty damn awesome though so please don't take this as bashing just sharing my thoughts see if anyone else is in the same boat. Seems like at parts this album goes and expands musically then shrinks back down to synced bass beats with guitar strums. can't wait for the show though. Any thoughts?

Rating: 7 Maybe if they turned the volume down on the bass drum lol

Rating: 9 The more I listen to it, the more I adore it! They definitely didn't disappoint me with this. Sure, the common problem with their albums is the tendency for their songs to sound alike, but that doesn't bother me at all...

I agree. I wasn't a big fan of Indestructible, and while their style really hasn't change since Ten Thousand Fists, for some reason i'm really liking Asylum. Maybe its because I haven't listened to much Disturbed since Ten Thousand Fists and this new release has restored that little Disturbed kid in me. Either way, thumbs up for this new album! A few notable songs that i'm really liking after only a few listens, Asylum, Warrior and Serpentine.

In my opinion, Believe is their best album!!! Believe me! Listen to it carefully and see what i mean!!!

  Great album. Every song has a great vibe, and this album doesn't sound alternative metal.
Jaeryd17‍ - 14.12.2012 at 00:07  
Rating: 6 The first five songs were pretty good for the style, but then the rest of the album sucked. It was full of riffs that seemed like they were going to come to a crashing, aggressive chorus line, but then failed to deliver anything noteworthy. The vocals were also a problem; probably the worst they've been out of all their studio-recorded material, being even worse than the vocals in Ten Thousand Fists.

When I was a young teen in High school, this used to be one of my favorite bands. I loved Indestructible. Even though it was a little plain for some people's tastes, it was done very well. As flawless as a band like this could get. Definitely the pinnacle of their career. I was vastly disappointed with this release. When it came out, it caused me to shy away from Disturbed--and consequentially introduced me to the rest of the metal world, which made me realize how poor Disturbed is in comparison anyway, so no big loss there.

Remnants/Asylum and Another Way to Die are the only songs that are actually any good. The Infection is different for Disturbed, and isn't all that bad. Warrior is okay, but you have to listen to it a few times before it can get the chance to grow on you. First listen and it sounds like shit. Everything else is mediocre, at best.

My Child is emotional if you know the story behind it--he got his girlfriend pregnant and wasn't ready to become a father, but after preparing himself and finally accepting it, he became excited to be a dad. When that finally happened, the baby miscarried and died. The baby died just as he was emotionally ready and happy to become a father. Knowing that story is the only way to make that song any good. Other than that, it's not so special.
