DISTURBED
TEN THOUSAND FISTS
REPRISE

These Chicago metalheads are nobodyís idea of a brainy rock band, so at first itís disconcerting to hear them splice a sample of George W. Bush bloviating about freedom into "Deify," a cut from this their third studio album. Stick with the song, though, and youíll recall that frontman David Draiman is best known for singing about "drowning deep in my sea of loathing," as he did in one of Disturbedís first big hits, "Down with the Sickness." If the sound bite is any indication, "Deify" is a brutal takedown of the president in which Draiman insists he wonít let America "renew belief in some demented man"ó strong stuff from a group expected to adhere to new metalís psychological boilerplate. Draiman and his mates try to duplicate the social critique in an electronically enhanced cover of Genesisís "Land of Confusion" ó on their 2000 debut they did Tears for Fearsí "Shout" ó but itís not quite as effective. Blame Phil Collins, another demented man.
