Disturbed and Nickelback


Recommended Posts

Both these bands started out around the same time which is a little over 25 years.This past Friday both bands releases new material.Disturbed-Divisive and Nickelback-Get Rollin".

Is anyone getting both, one or none of the above. I personally am getting both.

Have never listened to Disturbed but have been checking out Nickelback as discussed in their thread.  I suspect it'll probably be a polarizing album which is usually the case with Nickelback.  I feel like they're a little like Def Leppard in terms of the wide range of opinions you often get on their stuff.  If somebody wants a balls out, rocking album....This won't be it.  But I'm liking it for a change of pace and something different than my normal listening.

Musically and production wise, Disturbed sound great. Something these two bands have in common. 
 

Sadly, in Disturbed’s case I’m yet to hear a song from them, on any album, that I really like. 
 

Nickelback are always a pretty safe bet, though.

I like most of Disturbed's songs.

If I had to pick just one I'd probably go with Stricken

I hate saying that bands suck. Especially bands that have honed their craft and achieved massive success over the course of decades like these two have. It's just factually inaccurate to say that they aren't talented musicians.

That said, I've always hated both of these bands. The most infuriating part is that I can't even really tell you why. Between the perception of being as edgy as possible when they came out (Disturbed and the nu-metal scene in general), the generic, watered down production of 2000s alt rock (Nickelback), the subject matter being presented (there's a section in Disturbed's "Down with the Sickness" where David Draiman begs his father to stop beating him up, which should be sad and heartbreaking, but the way it's presented just comes off as comical), etc. have always made me cringe whenever these two bands in particular are mentioned.

Some bands from the same period can get away with the above offenses, so even I don't really understand my disdain for these guys, so I'm fully aware that I'm a musical hypocrite. Be that as it may, however, I can't stand either band and I'm afraid I never will, even though I will admit that they do, objectively, write some good songs.

Ten Thousand Fists and Indestructible are two really great albums imo, way better and more consistent than any Nickelback album, who usually only have about a handful of enjoyable songs on them.

I was lucky to see Disturbed when they toured after the Ten Thousand Fists CD was released.

    • Another band ruined by frontiers.
    • Yeah, sad news. Even though she was a quiet achiever in that group with Stevie getting most of the attention, she sings Lead on two of my favourite "Fleetwood Mac" tracks. "Little Lies" is a Killer. R.I.P.      
    • For me, "Run-D.M.C." in '88 on their "Tougher Than Leather" tour when I was 16. A bit left field, but I loved these guys in my early teens. They weren't afraid to embrace Hard Rock guitars in their music.    
    • I was there too mate. You can't beat the atmosphere of a concert "in the round". I'm surprised it doesn't happen more often.
    • Keep a lid on it 
    • This one looks like a fun ride....  
    • I keep sticking with the band but my initial thoughts are that this is basically hookless. I sure hope this was just released as the first single cause it is loud and fast and isn't considered the best song on the upcoming album.
    • GENERATION LANDSLIDE (Cold Sweat / Lillian Axe members) – Ruling The Street Scene (2022) online sources · NOVEMBER 28, 2022     Comprising former members of both Cold Sweat and Lillian Axe, Las Vegas’ hard rockers GENERATION LANDSLIDE release their debut album ”Ruling The Street Scene”. Fronted by Anthony White, formerly of Cold Sweat and Cold Gin, GENERATION LANDSLIDE is a whirlwind of ’80s and early ’90s-influenced American-style melodic hard rock, complete with big hooks, singalong choruses and a feel-good vibe that continues throughout the entire ”Ruling The Street Scene”. Produced by White, the album kicks off with the ferocious ‘Little Miss Lonely’, then ‘Feel the Sensation’ follows with heavy gang vocals telling the story of finishing your day job and feeling the anticipation of going wild from seeing your favourite band in concert that night from a spiritual way. ‘Love and Pain’ relates the ups and downs in every relationship and the emptiness of being alone and ‘Are You Out There?’ is a tribute to the late Thin Lizzy bassist Phil Lynott. Highly Recommended   01 – Little Miss Lonely 02 – Feel the Sensation 03 – Nite Time Magic 04 – I’ll Keep Movin’ Along 05 – Love and Pain 06 – Are You out There 07 – Sweet Ellie May 08 – The City on the Edge of Forever 09 – Me in You 10 – Standing in the Rain Anthony White – lead vocals, lead guitar Sandy Stein – guitar Jonathon Swanson – bass Ken Koudelka – drums   BUY www.amazon.com/Ruling-Street-Scene-Generation-Landslide/dp/B0BFBV9HN2
