Disturbed - Indestructible (Reprise Records/Warner Bros Records) - Back
I have to be totally honest I wasn't overly pleased with Disturbed's last offering and when 'Indestructible' debuted at #1 on the Australian and U.S. Charts I really didn't know what to expect. Let's face it… it's extremely rare that a hard rock and or heavy metal band ever breaks the top ten let alone debut at number one! After listening to the new album a few times, it is clear that this is the bands best work since 'The Sickness'. Almost every song on this album is catchy, has great hooks, and the production overall is fantastic. Some of the stand out tracks on the album were 'Deceiver', 'Divide', 'Haunted' and 'Façade'! Disturbed front-man David Draiman out does himself vocally on the new album, Dave's vocals seem to be getting stronger and he has surely earned himself a place on metals most unique vocalist with the help of 'Indestructible'. The Japanese edition includes an amazing track titled 'Parasite'…no not the Kiss classic but certainly one hell of a killer Disturbed track, which in my opinion should have been released worldwide. Much like Megadeth, Iron Maiden, and Dio, Disturbed is one of the newer bands who have continued on the tradition of using a certain character to represent the band with every album release. The artwork from 'Indestructible' is by far the best the band has offered thus far. There is no doubt that Disturbed are about to ride the insane roller coaster of major commercial success thanks to the new album, let's just hope they don't fall off. 'Indestructible' is certainly an album that is fitting in most metal fans collection, I recommend checking it out as soon as you can! Disturbed's 'Indestructible' is out now via Reprise Records.
