FUSE TV - Disturbed's David Draiman Calls 'Sound of Silence' Success 'Overwhelming': Interview

Not many people would have put money on Disturbed’s biggest-ever hit to be a slow, gentle piano ballad, considering their nearly two decades together of unfurling aggressive metal tunes to burgeoning audiences. But here we are, with a cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence” eclipsing hard-rock smashes like “Down with the Sickness” and “Stupify” to become the band’s highest-charting hit on the Billboard Hot 100, climbing to No. 51 on the chart last week.

David Draiman, the longtime frontman for the group, tells Fuse that the reaction to the song—originally released on last year’s Immortalized LP— goes “way above and beyond” the band’s expectations when the change-of-pace cover was released.

“You always hope to transcend what you’ve already done, and this certainly seems to be doing just that,” Draiman says. “We really couldn’t be happier. We welcome anyone and everyone to the fold, and it’s just great to know that the emotion and the style of this particular version of this song is affecting so many people.”
