David Draiman On New Disturbed Album: “This Is Our Black Album”

Disturbed’s David Draiman recently spoke about the band’s new album “Evolution“ (out October 19) as part of a cover story for Metal Hammer. The singer said the following: “If I died after this record came out, and this was the end of our legacy, I’d be OK with that. To me, this is our Black Album,” referring to Metallica’s 16x multi-platinum self-titled album. He continued: “We’ve always used that as a goal – the record that literally every single track on it could be a hit. A record that breaks doors down, that opens up new opportunities to us, that helps you achieve true immortality as an artist.” Draiman also added the following about the effect their successful cover of Simon & Garfunkel‘s “The Sound Of Silence” had on them:

“‘The Sound Of Silence‘ taught us that we shouldn’t be afraid of pushing the boundaries. We’ve been hungering for years to do material like what we’ve done on the new record. Some people just like the heavy stuff and they don’t want to take a breather. For me – and I’ve used this analogy before – the slap feels much more satisfying after the caress.”
