Saturday Rock Show

I have posted one or two songs by the band Disturbed before. Classically heavy metal, they also have the intelligence to write such moving songs as "Pray", "Liberate", and "Stricken". The man who operates the website "Dr. Music" reviews their latest CD, Indestructible, and nails it right on the head: despite a certain "sameness" to their sound, they are nevertheless a maturing band who aim for high-quality at all times (including a high quality of ass-kicking). Their latest release includes a deeply personal song by lead singer David Draiman, concerning the suicide of his high school girlfriend. It not only rocks hard, it is honest enough - and resonant enough for someone like me who has lived through a similar experience - that I thought I would share it with you. Before the song starts, Draiman does a little plug for the National Suicide Prevention Hotline, and the number pops up both before and after the video itself. I would urge you, if you know anyone who might be sliding down this way, to give this number to them. If you are feeling this way - CALL. I would also add that the video itself contains some imagery that some viewers might find disturbing, but you can close your eyes and enjoy the song, if you wish.
