    Disturbed isn't Heavy Metal?

    I see it listed in the Metal section in HMV... so what is it then?

    Personally i'd say its nu-metal. This will probably be disputed by fans of the band who doesnt like to have this genre pinned on their favorite band..

    But i say if it quacks like a duck...


    If you wanna know what heavy metal is, go listen to black sabbath, deep purple or led zeppelin.

    I cant believe im actually posting here. Lol-city, population: me.
    As Slash said it's really Nu-Metal.
    Heavy Metal these days is really going into alot of subgenres. There are so many Metal-influenced bands these days its hard to define new just plain "heavy metal" bands. Stuff like grind, death, doom, hardcore (that might be going a little far). But Disturbed, by my opinion is Nu-metal. On another note, Have a listen to something like As I Lay Dying, Caliban, As Blood Runs Black, August Burns Red, The Knife Trade. Thats really great stuff

    Oh, and get drawing too.

    jsut because they are have a heavy metal label dosen't make them heavy metal. I agree with slash also. Go listen to some iron maiden if you want heavy metal. If you want real heavy metal go listen to amon amarth, or slayer, or cradle of filth or something like that. Why do you even care? Just because most of the people who have responded here dont like disturbed, or dont agree that it is in fact heavy metal dosent mean you have to try to prove or justify anything here. If you like them you like them.

    They may count as metal, but they're definately not heavy. This is Heavy.

    hmm................ well what does it matter? I love them and thats all that matters Isn't people like Black Sabbath and Led Zeplin more classic rock? Does the meaning of 'metal' change between countries?

    Disturbed is very disturbed especially with the lead singer doing that weird random voice thing after every sentences he sings. The novelty wore off real fast.

    lol cradle of filth the're nu-black metal Yeah, & if you like disturbed, everybody can just fuck off. I love Korn for example. If you want some metal suggestions, check out: Manowar, Iron Maiden, Metallica (older stuff), Iced Earth, Slayer, Bathory, Symphony X, Destruction, Nightwish, Lacrimosa, Sepultura, Stratovarius, Gamma Ray, Dio, Yngwie Malmsteen. Kick ass stuff. If it's in bold, then it means it kicks ass.

    Yngwie Malmsteen is the bomb!

    And yeah, Iron Maiden, Metallica and Iced Earth will remain my favourite exponents of the metal genre.

    Why is this thread here again?

    Then why the hell did you start all this? Are you really that bored? Why don't you do something that really matters? I don't know, work or something. It will help, trust me!

    I think this whole subgenre thing really goes on my nerve... and confuses everyone... I am not really sure if disturbed themselves know what genre they are put in. and in the end it doesn't matter as long as you like the music.... and I like disturbed!

    love it!

    Oh and about disturbed, who cares what it is?
    I like them, going to see them september 23rd, but if you don't like them then you dont.. Don't go nagging about what it is and if it sucks or if it doesn't. Everybody can figure out for themselves what they like and what not right?

    love
