The band Disturbed doesn’t deserve to get hated on, they’re a pretty rockin’ band… I love ’em!!!

Over the weekend, I bought two of Disturbed’s albums off of Itunes. I bought their first album, “The Sickness” and their newest album they just put out, “Evolution”. I used to listen that band Disturbed back in the early 2000’s years when that hit song “Down with the Sickness” started taking over the radio airwaves. Of course, everyone is familiar with that song as that song is considered the band’s anthem. I bought “The Sickness” album on CD when it came out and used to listen to it all the freakin’ time. I don’t have the CD anymore so I re-bought the album digitally and I forgot how sick of an album “The Sickness” really is. It really is an amazing record. Definitely one of the best metal and hard rock albums of all time.

Then I decided to buy their newest album “Evolution” in which everyone on the internet is talking about. The album is getting mostly negative reviews for whatever reason. I gave the album a listen once over the weekend and I really liked it a lot. I was trying to figure out why a lot of Disturbed fans hated that album, “Evolution”. When I listened to that album, I can see why a lot of people hate it. Over the weekend, I decided to give all the other Disturbed albums a listen. I decided to listen to the rest of the Disturbed albums in youtube since I don’t own the rest of them. On youtube, I listened to: “Believe”, “Ten Thousand Fists”, “Indestructible”, “Asylum” and “Immortalized”. I listened to all the band’s previous albums and I’m like, “Okay, I can understand why fans are upset ’cause the band changed directions with the music”.

The first 6 albums in the band’s career were all hard and heavy rockin’ albums. All their songs were pretty heavy and headbanging stuff… yet, when the band released “Evolution” this year, they decided to change directions with that album. The new album has songs that are mostly mellow and the songs are slower. This is why the fans are complaining ’cause the band decided to do something ballsy by mellowing it out. There are some heavy rockers on the new album, “Evolution” but most of the album is full of ballads. Is that why fans are upset? They’re upset at the band deciding to mellow out a little bit?

I can absolutely see why the band decided to mellow out on “Evolution” some ’cause the band spent the past ten years or more playing hard and heavy music and they were probably getting tired of it. I love it when bands do that. Decide to take big risks with their music and Disturbed did just that. Fans complain that all their songs sound the same but when Disturbed decided to sound completely different on “Evolution”, the fans are still complaining and hating. I can see why fans are complaining about the new record “Evolution” ’cause it’s different than their older stuff. Disturbed just simply wanted a break from playing heavy music all the time and I can’t blame them.

With that being said, I loved the new album “Evolution”. It showed a different side of the band and they wanted to show their listeners that they can be songwriters. They wanted to show fans that they are more than just heavy music. I was impressed with David Draiman’s vocals on the new album as it showed that he can be a “singer” than just a hard rock singer.

I think Disturbed is a phenomenal band and I would love to see them live myself. Donegan is a great guitarist and Draiman’s one of the best rock vocalist of all time. I think that band is tight as hell when they play their hard rock stuff. Some say Disturbed hard rock music all sounds the same? Um,  please. They all sound different to me. It’s just good ol’ metal. That is all.

Disturbed is one of the top metal bands in the industry and they are a best selling band. Usually the most successful metal bands are the most hated so just ignore the haters and enjoy the music.

Purchased some new albums from Itunes today…

Just got an Itunes card today so I purchased 5 new albums from Itunes today so I can catch up with more 2018 album releases.

When I was younger, I used to listen to the band Disturbed. I used to listen to their album “The Sickness” which was the album that put their career on the map, but I don’t have that album anymore. I decided to get Disturbed newest album “Evolution” ’cause it’s getting good reviews everywhere. I’ve heard good things about it. I used to listen to the band myself so I already have an idea what they sound like. Disturb is a great hard rock band, though. They’ve always been a tight band and always wrote great hit songs, but I’m planning on listening to them a lot more.

As for the new Pistol Annies album, I’m not into new country music that much but these girls in the Pistol Annies are actually very good. Love them because they country music that sounds like actual country music. They don’t sound “pop” country if you know what I mean. The Pistol Annies are a talented group. Love them so much.

I’ve been a fan of Nita Strauss for a long while now and have been waiting for her debut solo album to come out. She’s been around in the music industry for years, but she never released her own album until now. Nita Strauss is a badass guitar player and very talented. Love her playing and I think the woman herself is sexy looking as hell.

As for Myles Kennedy “Year of the Tiger”, this album has been getting good reviews as well. He’s the singer for Slash’s solo project and Myles put out his own solo album. Looking forward to hearing this.

As for Slash’s new album, “Living the Dream”, I’ve been following Slash’s solo career for a long while now ever since “Apocalyptic Love” album. I’m a big fan of Guns N’ Roses yes but I’m more of a fan of Slash’s solo career. The stuff he does with Myles Kennedy is excellent shit. I’ve been reading about the new Slash album “Living the Dream” so I had to get it for myself.

There ya go. Enjoy!

BREAKING NEWS: Disturbed at no. 1 in Billboard this week…

Is hard rock starting a new revolution again like it did in the 90’s? Hard rock and metal sure is trying to destroy pop music because Disturbed just did that by making no. 1 in the Billboard Top 200 with their new album “Indestructible”. This is Disturbed 4th album in their discography and their 3rd no. 1 album in their career.

While the band hasn’t made that much albums over the years, the band still seems to grow huge attention in the mainstream music industry. I believe Don Donegan’s impressive guitar playing is respondible for this, he is one of today’s best rock guitarists, hands down.

Rock music is slowly trying to take over mainstream music and we hope it continues. With rock bands like Aerosmith, Stone Temple Pilots, Guns N’ Roses, Ac/Dc, etc. all might be coming out with new albums this year could be all over the Billboard.

There’s not many good rock bands out today but Disturbed is one of the newer bands that I love. I think “Sickness” is a mind blowing and amazing album.

Disturbed could be considered the next Led Zeppelin/Rollngstones in the next 20 years if Disturbed stays together that long.

I hope Disturbed stays together for a long time. They are a great band that knows what music is supposed to be about.
