Some artists arrive so fully formed, they make an instant impact. The 2000 debut album from this Chicago metal four-piece is a heavy classic, thanks to its masterful welding of catchy hooks and creepy sound effects to stomping power riffs.

Meanwhile, the electronic elements on “The Game” and a bold remake of Tears for Fears’ hit “Shout” nail Disturbed’s experimental streak.

Draiman had grown up in a religious family against which he rebelled, being expelled from five boarding schools in his adolescence.
