Awesome cover. Powerful title. "Alright," I thought, "Disturbed's really going to deliver on this one." But would they truly prove to be indestructible? It's taken me a couple of week's to mull over this question since the album's release on June 3, and I'd have to say "yes."
I've been a fan of Disturbed since their first album, "The Sickness", which is to this day still my favorite of their efforts. After "The Sickness" came two albums that were decent overall, but nothing amazing, especially after the band's amazing debut. Now, after hearing "Indestructible", I'd have to say that Disturbed has taken a step in the right direction. The album mixes the best aspects of all 3 former albums into one compilation that will please fans both new and old.
"Indestructible", then, is a fitting title for the band's fourth album. This time around, the band have become masters of what they do best. Lead guitar, bass, vocals, and drum beats all shine in their respective moments. It's not that this album is simply recycled bits of older albums, though, in fact "Indestructible" brings a new flavor to the table. This one's darker, with gloomier lyrics and melodies. David Draiman manages to carry catchy hook choruses as usual, but this time with more meaning,
I'm happy to say that this album has more great songs to offer than just the first single, "Inside the Fire." Right off the top of my head, I'd say the following songs shine the most:
And those are just the best ones. All of the others songs are fine, and fit right into the overall collective. There are fast parts, there are slow parts (although not many), and oh yeah, it's heavy. Unlike some of Disturbed's other albums, this one doesn't have any filler, which is nice. Truly the band has crafted an indestructible sound over the course of their career, and it really shows in their latest work.
