Formed in 1996 in Chicago, the band would function for a time without a vocalist until Dave Draiman joined in 1997. They would write and record for several years before finally unleashing their debut in 2000. They gained instant fame by acting as one of the headliners of 2001's Ozzfest tour. Since then they've continued their successful road by raising the bar, musicially, on each subsequent album, and by heavily touring and promoting themselves. I love this band, they rock the house, sound awesome and they always put on one hell of a show!
Disturbed is hard to ignore these days, whether on the radio, in videos, or on Steve Austin's wrestling theme song. Their music is about as accessible as it gets, with their sound divided between their lighter, more mainstream and commercial fare, and their darker album material. You never know which version of the band you'll get when you open up a new Disturbed CD. You do know whatever version it's going to be, but you do know you'll never be disappointed.
