The rock world may be getting a bit quieter next year, with the planned hiatus of alt-metal group Disturbed. But for longtime fans and collectors, they’re at least going out with a bang, releasing a compilation of B-sides and unreleased material as a going-away present.
The Lost Children collates 16 tracks from the Chicago-based band, many of which have appeared on Japanese pressings, import CD singles, soundtracks or digital downloads, all in one place for the first time. The set spans the band’s entire chronology, from “God of the Mind” and “A Welcome Burden,” both of which appeared on last year’s 10th anniversary reissue of The Sickness, to a set of rare and unreleased tracks recorded during sessions for the band’s latest effort, Asylum (2010) – the fourth consecutive album out of the band’s five-album discography to debut at No. 1 in the United States. (One of the most intriguing is “3,” released as a digital download to raise money for the West Memphis Three last year, making its debut on physical media.)
The lead single, “Hell,” was released as an extra track on some international editions of 2005′s Ten Thousand Fists. The whole set comes out November 8, and the track list is yours to view after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »
This news is about a month old, but I only just uncovered it recently: metal band Disturbed is reissuing their solid debut, The Sickness (2000), on March 23 for its 10th anniversary. Hard rock fans doubtlessly remember The Sickness for rock radio hits like “Stupify,” “Down with the Sickness” and “Voices” – and this new reissue, said to feature some bonus tracks from the vault as well as expanded artwork and a new remix and remastering, will be a cool stopgap for fans as the band finishes its fifth album, due in the summer.
Currently, it remains to be seen what the extra songs are going to be. (Import copies of the record featured an extra track, “God of the Mind,” as well as a few live cuts that would surface on CD singles at the time.) Once more info comes in it will of course go live right here.
