Disturbed frontman David Draiman spoke in an interview with Consequence of Sound and explained why he said that ‘Disturbed’s latest album “Evolution” is the band’s “Black Album”‘.

Here’s the statement:

“The thick irony about that is that everybody took one little blurb form a three-page article in Metal Hammer and reposted it in every single publication in existence, and then it makes it seem that I’m telling everybody that this is our ‘Black Album’.”

He continued:

“What did it symbolize for Metallica? It opened the doors for them. It took them to the next level. It enabled them to expand their fan base dramatically … and that is my hope for this record. We truly feel that this is the strongest body of work we’ve ever created.”

Back in October 2018, he talked with Deutsche Welle and said:

“It’s simply a matter of something that every rock and every metal band aspires to – they all want to write that record that takes them to the next level. And that’s what the ‘Black Album’ did for Metallica and that’s what I’m hoping this record does for us.

Just in the sense that I hope that we can have a similar type of stars aligning and fate taking a hand and things really exploding the way we hope it will.”
