Same here; I think their guitar work is very talented for their time.

Yeah, Disturbed is a good band IMHO. Each album they have released warrants creative merit.

Not to mention - they have a great stage show.

And ... they are probably the closest to 'true' metal of any of the Alternative Metal bands.

I saw them on the first Mayhem Fest and Music As A Weapon IV, and both times they were great. I don't listen to them a whole lot, but I feel they get hated on a lot. Example: This thread.

3 of my bandmates love Disturbed; they all went to Music As A Weapon V, and they were supposed to go to Mayhem this year, but they couldn't make it. Personally, when I got into metal, I liked Disturbed a lot, then they kind of fell out of my favor, but now I feel like they've grown on me. They're fairly talented, and they're definitely true to their fans, so I can at the very least appreciate them. I do, however, love their song The Night and quite a few of their other songs are usually on my playlist for the day. They're not bad by me.

Though, at times, I see why people say they're phony, like in the other thread: they do talk a WHOLE lot about metal. Not so much in their lyrics (which I always thought was kind of silly, but whatever), but on stage and in interviews. It's a bit... well, it seems like they're trying to say they're the epitome of metal and its current champions. I definitely wouldn't go so far to say that, but whatever works for them Razz

It all comes down to tastes, I suppose. I respect any band that puts time and effort into their music (if they don't do that, F*CK 'EM! Laughing ), but that doesn't mean I like everything.

Yeah, when I saw them at Music as a Weapon IV they talked about how people come listen to heavy metal like us (Disturbed) during times of trouble etc. They definitely refer to themselves as one of the best bands out there, which in my opinion isn't true.

I'm seriously the only person I know that can stand it. I used to work at a Burger King and I would play music through my phone at night. Every time King Diamond came on everyone went nuts. Something about his voice just shredded their ears, or at least that's how they acted.

I also like Depeche Mode. Their early singles were pretty poppy, but their later work became darker and more mature. I'm not way familiar with their discography, but most everything I've heard from Black Celebration - onwards has been pretty good. Violator is a really good album.

I have a soft spot for '80s pop as well as some Dark Wave / gothic rock like Bauhaus, Peter Murphy, Sisters of Mercy, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Cure, etc and other "sappy" stuff most metalheads rip on.

Disturbed are one of the few nu-metal / alt-metal / whatever-it's-called bands I can put up with. Dave Draiman is one of the better singers in mainstream rock, I think, and their last few albums do have a more metal edge to them than most similar bands. I think they've improved over the years. With that said I rarely listen to more than two or three songs at a time. I also like Rammstein.



I pretty much agree with you on all counts. Big King Diamond fan here.



I also am with you on liking a lot of the goth/darkwave stuff. I'm a big fan of Peter Murphy, Sisters of Mercy and the Cure ... among others.



I hope you stick around this board. You've got great tastes.

On a related note, my ex-girlfriend hated Iron Maiden and whined at the sheer mention of the name and "that guy's voice!" and "I'm not into that Dungeons & Dragons stuff" ...

I knew from that moment on that it would never last if I had to choose between her or Eddie. Laughing

Yeah, exactly. I think his voice is just a little too grating for most. I think it rocks, though. Plus, trying to convince anyone that he has any songs that have nothing to do with *high pitched* "SAAATAAAANNNN!!!" is futile... scratch (What's wrong with Satan anyway? Razz)

I can't post a link, but try searching on Youtube for Queen Diamond. They're an all-female Mercyful Fate / King Diamond tribute band. In all my life I've never met ONE girl who could even tolerate King's voice / music, and there's five women who not only do, but formed a tribute band! That just blows my mind somehow. Laughing

My sister bought me a Sisters of Mercy box set a while ago. I'm loved. Very Happy

Have you heard the new Peter Murphy album by any chance? I only just got it so I need to give it a more proper listen, but so far I'm really digging it and think it's one of his best in a while.

Thanks! Very Happy I plan on hanging around until I finally get run out of town. Laughing happy

There's some great people here and I'm really diggin' the friendly vibe from you all.

Love King Diamond/Mercyful Fate and King's voice has always been a major part of that love.

Peter Murphy has also been a long time favorite. Need to pick-up the new one. The samples sound like it is a must have. Was supposed to go to a signing he was doing in Hollywood but couldn't make the trip. I actually have a concert shirt from the Deep tour I was looking to get signed. Speaking of Murphy, it took me a lot longer to finally appreciate Bauhaus.

Was listening to these today and thought of this thread....

Green On Red - "Time Ain't Nothing" is one of my favorite songs but the rest of their stuff requires multiple listens for it to take. I love that about bands. Make me work to love it and I'll be a fan for life.

Gang Of Four - It will take a miracle record to knock their latest "Content" from my album of the year choice. I even dig the attempts they made at hits in the eighties. Saw them at a festival in 1991 when I was only familiar with "I Love A Man In A Uniform" and was completely blown away. At that show I seemed to be one of the few.

Superchunk - One of the great musical mysteries for me was the fact that all of my alternative rock fan friends hated (as in despised) these guys. I could never figure that out or why Superchunk didn't become big stars on that scene. They had passion, big hooks, and catchy songs. They even had the cute bassist. I actually think it holds up better today than it did then.

The new Peter Murphy? As in brand new? I've not heard any of his very recent stuff. I need to catch up - I was out of the loop for a while there. I hold "Deep", "Cascade" and "Holy Smoke" as guarded treasures though. Lots of depth there.

I agree, though I didn't like em much at the time. I warmed up to them years later while revisiting some of this era. At that particular time I wasn't much of a fan of grunge. I was more into the metal/industrial/goth scene. I did like Nirvana though, but that's about as far as my love for grunge went. Nowadays I like Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Stone Temple Pilots and a few others. Still haven't been able to get into Soundgarden though.

I have some catching up to do with his newer stuff as well, but his newest album is Ninth (2011). I'm diggin' it, seems like it would sit in nicely with his early material. Try looking up the singles "The Prince and Old Lady Shade" and "I Spit Roses" on YouTube. Deep is definitely a desert island disc.

I loved all the female fronted pop metal that came out in the late eighties. Vixen, Femme Fatale, Phantom Blue, and even the more obscure stuff like Fiona. One of my favorite concerts ever was Vixen at Hammerjacks in Baltimore in 1990. Thinking about it, I would add them to the Underrated thread.

Same for both of those, actually. Velvet Underground is in there, too, at least for me.

Haha this one too. Although I only casually listen to them i.e. when a random song plays on Winamp, or when I feel the need to run around at a bazillion miles an hour.

I like Dragonforce as well.







Sacred Steel - they seem to get a lot of crap, but I love the vocals and cheesy lyrics.

I like them all from time to time, too. They get a huge amount of hate across the board, but I actually like some of each of their works quite a bit. Other stuff, I see why they get some flack, but still, they don't deserve all of it.
