Disturbed‘s model new studio document Divisive is out right this moment (Nov. 18), and David Draiman was proper when he described the sound of it as “old-school Disturbed.” The vocalist introduced again the long-lasting “Ooh-wah-ah-ah-ah” in one of many new songs, which is titled, “A part of Me,” although it sounds ever-so-slightly completely different.
If there’s one tune that defines Disturbed, it is “Down With the Illness.” Everybody is aware of the tune, and everybody has tried to emulate the “Ooh-wah-ah-ah-ah” at one level of their lives. Happily, Draimain’s nonetheless acquired it seven albums later, as you may hear in “A part of Me” across the 2:28 mark.
Now, earlier than you come at our throats, we all know it isn’t the actual identical sound that he made throughout “Down With the Illness.” This new one is slower in tempo, and he added an “ow” on the finish, so it actually sounds extra like “Ooh-wah-ah-ah-ah-ow.” However, it is finished with the identical integrity as the unique.
Take heed to the observe under to listen to for your self.

“It actually simply occurred someday. We had been training, and that beat that Mike begins the tune off with is simply very primal and tribal, and it makes you type of go to — I suppose an animalistic type of place,” Draiman recalled. “There used to simply be a pause. We used to pause, it was for dramatic affect and there was nothing. One follow I simply went, ‘Ooh-wah-ah-ah-ah.'”
