Disturbed has released the third music video off their sixth studio album, Immortalized.
The leviathan that is Disturbed has released their cover of the Simon & Garfunkel classic “The Sound of Silence.” Disturbed premiered the new music video on Yahoo. It’s the second music video Disturbed has released in less than three weeks.
Disturbed’s arrangement puts a more powerful take on the classic original.
Directed by Matt Mahurin, the video starts with what looks like a landfill for musical instruments. Broken piano keys on fire lead into a close up of frontman David Draiman as he starts to sing the first verse. Draiman does an amazing job as he tests his own vocal capabilities and takes himself out of his own comfort zone to sing the classic track.
Immortalized is the band’s fifth consecutive studio album to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard charts. Metallica is the only other band in the rock/metal genre who can claim that achievement. Immortalized has already saw two No. 1 singles released from the album: in “The Vengeful One” and “The Light.”
Disturbed will hit the road and tour for the first time in more than four years in 2016. The band will play its first show in 2016 at the Prairie Capitol Convention Center in Springfield, Illinois on Jan. 14, and close the first half of the 2016 calendar at the 10th anniversary one of biggest rock festivals of the year at Rock on the Range in Columbus, Ohio on May 20. Disturbed will also headline other majors rock festivals including Fort Rock and Welcome to Rockville in Florida and Carolina Rebellion in Charlotte.
