The latest Disturbed release is a throwback to the heavy metal of old! Those who want to label music as this or that (e.g. “nu-metal”) and simply dismiss it on the basis of a silly erroneous category are feeble-minded people and their reviews should subsequently be dismissed as such! Besides when the music is good does it matter what genre it might fall under?
Disturbed (and Ten Thousand Fists) is probably the most exciting thing to happen to heavy metal since the late 80s when this type of music was at its peak. Ten Thousand Fists is a killer album from the high pitch vocals (e.g. reminiscent of Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Anthrax, Slayer, etc.) the thrashing guitar solos (reminiscent of Metallica, Megadeth, etc.) and the killer drum beats (reminiscent of Pantera, Sepultura, etc.).
I highly recommend checking out this album! Most of the cuts on this album are excellent, from the writing, music, vocal arrangements, lyrical content (a lot of which is politically oriented something not found too often in metal!), to the overall highly polished production. I believe Ten Thousand Fists to be Disturbed’s best effort yet…dare I say better than The Sickness (2000)? Find out for yourself and pick up a copy today!
