Heavy metal band Disturbed came together through the matching of a band with a singer. Longtime friends DanDonegan(guitar), Mike Wengren (drums), and Fuzz (bass) played together in Chicago for some time before hooking up withsingerDavid Draiman around 1997. Draiman had grown up in a religious family against which he rebelled, being expelled fromfiveboarding schools in his adolescence. His anger found an outlet in the thrashing sound of Disturbed, and the band built upafollowing on Chicago's South Side before a demo tape led to their signing to Giant Records, which released their debut album,The Sickness, in March 2000. The band gained more fans and exposure playing the main stage of the 2001 Ozzfest,thenbroke away to do their own self-described "victory lap" around the U.S. that fall. Also during this period, they managedto recorda vicious new version of wrestler Steve Austin's theme song that was so good it managed to receive radio play, andthey wereone of the bands announced 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 aband. Feeling experimental, the band members worked with producer Johnny K and mixer Andy Wallace in order tocreate analbum that could compare to other classic metal records they admired. Amplifying their fondness for groups likeJudas Priest, IronMaiden, Pantera, and Soundgarden, Believe was released in the fall of 2002 and was recognized as aheavier, more varied,and ultimately superior record to their debut, ultimately reaching the top of the Billboard 200.After completing a tour tosupport the album, Fuzz left the band and was replaced by former Union Underground memberJohn Moyer. The tour documentMusic as a Weapon II appeared in 2004, followed by the ambitious studio full-lengthTen Thousand Fists in September2005 and Indestructible in 2008. In 2010, Disturbed released their fifth studioalbum, Asylum. In July of 2011, theband members announced that they would be going on an indefinite hiatus due topersonal issues within the group. The LostChildren, a collection of rarities and B-sides, arrived in November of thatyear. The band has since reunited, and released twomore studio albums, Immortalized in 2015, and Evolution in2018. « hide
