“FEEL SO NUMB” ROB ZOMBIE
Rob Zombie’s second solo album, The Sinister Urge, went platinum and confirms Rob’s decision to break away from White Zombie and go solo. “Feels So Numb” is an instant mosh pit starter with a non-stop drum assault, heavy guitars, and an edgy vocal by Rob. Add in an evil laugh, horror movie samples, and an intro promising to “defend good and fight against injustice and evil” in Spanish!
Dave Draiman and his Chicago metal band, Disturbed, have been selling out arenas and taking on the mantle of Nu-Metal gods for the last 15 years. “Down With The Sickness” and “Stupify” on their debut CD both hit #1 and Disturbed was stealing the thunder as the opening act for Marilyn Manson. Hardcore metal fans bought Disturbed albums at record pace but never considered the band “hard” enough to break away from their nu-metal label. Yes, they softened their sound over the years, but it’s hard to deny their early work.
