Best news of the week...possibly the month...possibly the year. I apologize b/c there are a few Disturbed fans on here. My apologies to you...

DISTURBED singer David Draiman has commented on persistent rumors that the band will call it quits once it completes its South American tour in August.

Asked by a fan via Twitter if it's true that DISTURBED might break up, Draiman replied earlier today (Friday, July 22), "We don't know what we're doing yet. All I can tell you is that we will be gone for quite a while."

Draiman told an Idaho radio station on July 13 that the band will not headline a sixth "Music As A Weapon" tour in 2012 and is not sure what its plans for the future are. In the interview with Boise's KQXR, Draiman said, "We don't know what we're doing . . . This is gonna be the last tour that the American people get to see us in for awhile, if not indefinitely. We have some things going on internally, we have some personal things going on. So I don't know. It's hard to tell . . . But you're not gonna see a DISTURBED tour for awhile."

Draiman did not elaborate on what "personal" or "internal" issues the band was dealing with.

I'm really hoping this happens. I don't wish anything bad towards the band as far as their "personal" / "internal" issues go but god enough is enough already. I have a feeling they will go the SOAD way, maybe somebody does a couple solo albums, they will be shit and nobody will like them, then 4-5 years they get back together, do a huge festival and we are stuck w/ Disturbed again. Just a guess.

You see, "good" is subjective here.

No need for this, it won't change anything.



I like Disturbed, btw.

I have no problem admitting that I liked The Sickness & then after buying Believe they really kind of lost me and they've never really done anything w/ the exception of a song or 2 that I enjoyed. I've seen them 4-5x and each time I saw them I enjoyed them less and less. It's not like I'm hating w/o giving them a chance, they've gotten less enjoyable for me as the years go by. I'm not hating on anyone that does, to each their own.

I never understood why people are so happy that a band they don't like is breaking up. I mean, you were never listening to the band anyway, and i'm sure you're all old and capable enough that you're able to listen to what you want and not have to be forced to listen to them, so how does them breaking up make a difference? And if that was the case, it's not like a band breaking up will mean that their music will automatically stopped being played or talked about. I can understand hating a band or ripping on them because you think they suck (I've done my fair share), but how is a band you hate breaking up really changing anything?

As far as this indefinite hiatus...meh. I'm a Disturbed fan, but maybe a break for a few years will allow them to mix up their sound a little bit. They've basically been doing the same stuff for 3 albums now, and their live show has become so bland and predictable, everything from the setlists to David's in-between song banter to the videos being used on their video screens, etc.

Im just happy cause they have been on like every fucking tour out there and it's getting kinda annoying.

To me, it truly makes no difference. I don't care.

I just get a reprieve from being asked "DO YOU LIKE DISTURBED???" when I say I like metal. I'm fine with it being some other retardedly bad band, but it just always is Disturbed.

I find it funny that alot of people dig the first album the most, because it was practically their only nu-metal album, yet most people hate on nu-metal.

My favorite album was Believe, and they really lost traction after Ten Thousand Fists I think. They could use a hiatus.

They should probably hang it up for a few years. They were barely above average at Mayhem yesterday.

I actually liked Ten Thousand Fists enough to buy the next one. Which turned out to be the EXACT SAME ALBUM. So I stopped caring. Also saw them live on the tour for that album (festival), and they were so fucking boring that I REALLY stopped caring.

For a rock band Disturbed's music has gotten way to mechanical/computerized sounding, cut & paste with no soul. Each album has a few good song but they would have been better served to put out an album every 3 years with less filler material compared to their nonstop album release followed by a tour followed by a new album and another tour. Fans are burnt out on Disturbed and now Disturbed is just going through the motions and are apparently tired of each other. Disturbed has oversaturated the metal market starting with 10,000 Fists. Its like that album came out and they have yet to go away.

Nu Metal is starting to die off. Less fans are going to the shows and there aren't any newer bands in that vein coming out to shake things up. Disturbed, Godsmack, Limp Bizkit, Seether, Mudvayne are fading out like hair metal did in the early 90's. Slipknot & SOAD will likely be the only two nu metal ands to carry forward with success due to their loyal, large fan bases. While I'm not sure where the next Nirvana will come from or who it will be I think it arrives in the next year to year and a half and drives the final nail into the nu metal coffin.

I agree on everything except Limp Bizkit, they are still getting a huge push in Europe and doing very well because of Kerrang etc. pushing them. Same with Linkin Park, but they stopped being a metal band with the last record. I do agree though, there is going to be a new band that will spawn a new wave of popular metal/rock and nu metal as a fashion statement and stylistic definition will effectively die in the mainstream.

10,000 Fists came out in 2005 and Indestructible came out in 2008 so they were sticking with the new album every three years until Asylum came out last year.

I think they band has wanted to end if for a few years now, perhaps since after the 2006 Ozzfest ended. But kept going due to the fact they were hugely successful and they decided to hang on and cash in as much as possible until they couldn't anymore.

I saw them on the 2003 and 2006 Ozzfest and their live show ruled and kicked ass. But when I saw them on the first Mayhem fest they had lost their passion live and I saw that again last year at Uproar.

They've toured non stop over the last three years and there isn't much left for them to accomplish in the music world. So a hiatus after this tour is over is a wise thing at this point. Maybe they can get some of that passion back they had in the first half of the 2000s again.

They may have taken a break after 2006 but perhaps due to Land of Confusion and other songs being constantly played on radio, it just seems like they never went away. And when they released new material 75% of it sounded like left overs. Perhaps they should have experimented a bit more or tried to become more progressive & stray from the radio single song format that alot of their songs stuck to. For the record I like Disturbed okay but a break is definitely needed.

I'll agree with that. I did like most of Indestructible though. It was the newer one that turned me off a bit. There's a few good tunes on it but most of it is forgettable.

Nu-Metal has been dead since 2003. All those bands that you mention have turn into basically hard rock/alternative or were never nu-metal in the first place (i.e. seether, godsmack). Anyways, Disturbed need a break anyway.

07-23-2011, 08:45 AM
The problem with Disturbed was that they basically covered both ends of the spectrum they could with the first 2 albums, then found that safe but still solid middleground with Ten Thousand fists, and then it seems like they just got stuck and did what a lot of bands do and release a lot of the same stuff.

I will say though that Draiman himself got better lyrically with each album, or at least through the first 4 albums.

That does almost work, except Mike quit.

But I'm guessing it is either the guitarist or the drummer. Since they plus David are original members so it's gotta be somebody of importance to songwriting in the band.

I find it hard to believe either member couldn't be replaced by Pro Tools, then you just setup a Macbook on stage and it gets it's own stool to sit on and they just tour w/ that.

I wouldn't mind if they go the SOAD hiatus route, because even the best bands deserve a break. And look at the May-June System tour, 26-28 songs a night! That's awesomely insane!

But, I don't like people that think just because they don't like a band that they should break up. I'm just saying in general. Well at least I got to see Disturbed when they came to Milwaukee in May.

And all the crap I here about David's voice being stained. I can hear it slightly, but I think most people are blowing it way out of proportion.

Now for all the fans of Disturbed on this board, including myself:
"We are DISTURBED, we are DISTURBED, we are DISTURBED, we all are DISTURBED" :rocker:
