Disturbed

disturbedDisturbed is an American rock band from Illinois, formed in 1996. Before vocalist David Draiman joined Disturbed, they were known as Brawl, a band whose lineup consisted of vocalist Erich Awalt, guitarist Dan Donegan, drummer Mike Wengren, and bassist Steve “Fuzz” Kmak. Awalt left the band shortly after the recording of a demo tape and the other three members went on advertising for a singer. Draiman then joined the band in 1996 and the band was re-named Disturbed.

Since the band’s formation, they have sold over 11 million albums worldwide, released three consecutive number-one albums, and have been nominated for a Grammy Award, making them one of the most successful rock bands in recent years. Only six other rock bands have had three consecutive studio albums reach number one in their first week of release: Van Halen, System of a Down, U2, Dave Matthews Band, Staind, and Metallica. Mike Wengren and John Moyer stated that Disturbed’s new album will be aggressive, angry, and “hard-hitting” and may be released in the spring or summer of 2010.
