went on hiatus in 2010, and shortly after released The Lost Children
in 2011 as a short going away present. In 2014 they secretly started writing material for a new album as they met up and got together for the first time in about 3-4 years. They recorded the album in secrecy as well, so when we all heard about it, it was completely recorded and finished to eager the Return
of one of the best Metal
With the return of these beasts, they procured a new and fresh sound in the way of their newest album Immortalized
! Throughout the album you can hear some of the old Disturbed
and some new stuff that is quite different. I'm especially referring to The Sound of Silence
cover which is basically just David Draiman singing his heart out, and Believe
me he PERFECTS it. Another great change would be Fire
It Up, which is about weed, which demonstrates a new and odd writing style. I'm guessing the reason for this song is because David has stated that he writes songs after getting high, which is pretty unique and different.
When the band decided it was time to return they wanted to come back with (a new sound, which I mentioned)but also a new Logo. As you can see the new logo on the album cover above, which I guess stands for a fresh start. The band also had not recorded an album together since Believe
in 2002, so they decided to collaborate face to face to make this beast as good as they could, which turned out AMAZING! They also decided to step away from Johnny K as producer and had met with others such as Johnny Feldman, Kevin Churko, etc. They eventually decided to go with Kevin Churko, who is responsible for the bands new sound.
Overall I would give this album a 20/20, because it shows the bands evolution, and their deication to something they have been a part of for about 18-19 years, and I think the fans are happy, and any who haven't heard it will be happy when they listen to this MASTERPIECE.
