Sounds of Silence


Instead of silence, I sometimes get lost in the luxury of listening to and re-listening again and again, certain songs.

And once in a blue moon I save and share them here.  This heavy metal version of Sounds of Silence, by Disturbed, deserves the saving. I love the militant and brutal style of presenting this deep classic by Simon and Garfunkel. Loved it then and love it now. Just a slightly different and captivating style.

Lead singer for heavy metal band Disturbed, David Draiman, is a 1996 graduate of Loyola University and former health care administrator. But by 2000, Draiman and Disturbed had produced their first album, The Sickness. Here is a 2015 winner that somehow crosses the heavy metal line into timeless beauty.
