The Sound of Silence
Refreshed and ready to kick butt, Disturbed return from a four-year hiatus with a set of bruisers. Immortalized is heavy, loud and shuddering with rage. "Save Our Last Goodbye" is vintage Disturbed: a brooding tale of love gone wrong featuring David Draiman's operatic baritone locked in fisticuffs with Dan Donegan's chunky riffage. Just as imposing is "Fire It Up," a hard-grooving ode to cannabis replete with bong sounds. The group then go old school with "Never Wrong," a throwback to their nü metal days. If Immortalized is any indication, Disturbed's second chapter is going to be excellent.
