Disturbed Debuts At #1 On Billboard Top 200

According to a press release, DISTURBED's third album, "Ten Thousand Fists" (Reprise), has debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard Top 200 chart with sales of 238,000. This marks the band's second No. 1-charting album, after 2002's "Believe" slammed into the top of the chart (with first-week sales of 284,000), building on the momentum of their triple-platinum debut "The Sickness".

"We've always done things our own way and to have our efforts saluted by our fans is really the ultimate reward," said DISTURBED in a joint statement.

The dramatic arrival of "Ten Thousand Fists" coincides with the Top 5 active rock single "Stricken", of which frontman David Draiman has noted: "It's about those moments when someone comes into your life and it's almost as if you've been afflicted with a disease you can't get rid of. Devastating and debilitating." The band filmed the song's video in an abandoned Los Angeles hospital with director Nathan Cox (QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, MARILYN MANSON, KORN, LINKIN PARK, STAIND). It is highlighted by dynamic performance footage of DISTURBED interspersed with a wide range of stirring images.

The buzz on "Ten Thousand Fists" began in July when the band made the song "Guarded" available on iTunes. Although "Guarded" wasn't officially released as a single — the track was offered to specialty metal radio shows — it vaulted into the Top Ten at Mainstream Rock radio as a result of popular demand. In addition, the album's title track was featured in EA Sports' mega-popular "Madden 2006" football game. Rock fans also got a taste of "Ten Thousand Fists" ahead of its street date when the band debuted songs from it on a frenzied North American summer tour that ran from August 3 to September 18.

Disturbed aren't all that bad.

I don't thinks theres anything they could do to get me to pick up any of their cds but theres some traditional metal in there.

As far as that bloated nu-metal sh** goes, Disturbed are probably the most true to their metal roots...it's kind of a sad statement to make but I think it's accurate. It's funny, I only know them through their singles and the band is about 1 for 6 as far as songs I've liked.

The song "Remember" was very straight ahead metal nothing nu-metaly like "Stupify" and "Down with the Sickness" on it....I've only heard the nu...er, uh...new single once so I can't really judge it fairly.

Man f*** disturbed! That pop-tart sh** is not f***in metal. When you talk disturbed, you compare them to bands like The Used, Hoobastank or Limp bizkit. Never ever will you here them in the same sentence as legendary gods like Slayer, Pantera, or Metallica. Disturbed's sh** is just too awful. It's kids play. For me to buy a Disturbed cd is the same as buying a Britney Spears cd.
