Disturbed – Immortalized

Disturbed is one of the most popular and profitable metal bands of all time. Following their nu metal anthem “Down with the Sickness”, they released four studio albums in 10 years, and all of them debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. To put this into perspective, Metallica and Dave Matthews Band are the only other “rock” acts to have achieved such a feat. Though the band has never been able to match the ubiquitous mainstream success of “Down with the Sickness”, Disturbed have managed to eclipse and transcend the concept of One-Hit Wonder. After Pantera dissolved, Disturbed became the modern metal band and the pinnacle act in the world of glossy, overproduced, FM-ready metal. Only Lamb of God (and Deftones, if they can even be mentioned alongside these bands) have matched their longevity and consistent sales, while other popular bands of the era — Korn, Drowning Pool, Mudvayne, Alien Ant Farm — shriveled up or became legacy touring acts, relying on past successes to generate ticket sales.
