Disturbed

Heavy metal band Disturbed came together through the matching of a band with a singer. Longtime friends Dan Donegan(guitar), Mike Wengren(drums), and Fuzz (bass) played together in Chicago for some time before hooking up with singer DavidDraiman around 1997. Draiman had grownup in a religious family against which he rebelled, being expelled from five boardingschools in his adolescence.

Heavy metal band Disturbed came together through the matching of a band with a singer. Longtime friends Dan Donegan(guitar), Mike Wengren(drums), and Fuzz (bass) played together in Chicago for some time before hooking up with singer DavidDraiman around 1997. Draiman had grownup in a religious family against which he rebelled, being expelled from five boardingschools in his adolescence. His anger found an outlet in thethrashing sound of Disturbed, and the band built up a following onChicago's South Side before a demo tape led to their signing to Giant Records,which released their debut album, TheSickness, in March 2000. The band gained more fans and exposure playing the main stage of the 2001Ozzfest, then brokeaway to do their own self-described "victory lap" around the U.S. that fall. Also during this period, they managed to recordavicious new version of wrestler Steve Austin's theme song that was so good it managed to receive radio play, and theywere one of the bandsannounced to work on a high-profile Faith No More tribute album.

Disturbed stepped into the studio after stepping off of the road and began work on a new disc that would reflect their growthas a band. Feelingexperimental, the bandmembers worked with producer Johnny K and mixer Andy Wallace in order to createan album that could compare to otherclassic metal records they admired. Amplifying their fondness for groups like JudasPriest, Iron Maiden, Pantera, and Soundgarden, Believe wasreleased in the fall of 2002 and was recognized as a heavier, morevaried, and ultimately superior record to their debut, ultimately reaching the topof the Billboard 200. After completing a tourto support the album, Fuzz left the band and was replaced by former Union Underground member JohnMoyer. The tourdocument Music as a Weapon II appeared in 2004, followed by the ambitious studio full-length Ten Thousand Fists inSeptember2005 and Indestructible in 2008. In 2010, Disturbed released their fifth studio album, Asylum. In July of 2011, thebandmembers announced thatthey would be going on an indefinite hiatus due to personal issues within the group. The LostChildren, a collection of rarities and B-sides, arrivedin November of that year. « hide
