Coming off of the enormous success of their brooding cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s “Sounds of Silence,” Chicago nu-metal veterans Disturbed deliver another slab of commercial grade active rock and montage-ready power balladry on their seventh studio effort, Evolution. Billed as a tribute to deceased contemporaries Chester Bennington of Linkin Park and Vinnie Paul of Pantera, the ten-track set strikes an even balance between meat-and-potatoes stadium shakers (“Are You Ready,” “No More”) and butane-draining acoustic numbers (“Hold On to Your Memories,” “Already Gone”). Working once again with producer Kevin Churko — bass player and backing vocalist John Moyer, who left in 2011 to tear things up in Adrenaline Mob and Art of Anarchy, has also returned — the band’s penchant for pairing uncompromising sonic heft with mile high hooks remains its greatest asset, with frontman Dave Draiman’s powerhouse voice shouldering that weight with Herculean stamina. The electronic elements that began creeping in on 2015’s Immortalized are utilized to an even greater degree this time around, but Moyer, guitarist Dan Donegan, and drummer Mike Wengren are always at the forefront, maintaining the road ahead with workmanlike precision. Disturbed play to their strengths, and why shouldn’t they? Stringing together five consecutive number one debuts is no small feat, and while it’s hard to argue that Evolution lives up to its moniker, the familiarity of the architecture is lent considerable gravitas by the overall execution, which as per usual, leaves nothing but perspiration in its wake — Draiman did remove his very ’90s goatee and signature chin piercings, citing a desire to not look like a “45-year old Hot Topic kid,” so there is that.

Recorded: January–May 2015 at The Hideout Recording Studio, Las Vegas

That album, Immortalized [Reprise], initially became the best-kept secret of the group’s career. In 2013, Draiman released a top 15 record with Device’s self-titled debut, while Donegan and Wengren launched Fight or Flight with A Life By Design. Following the success of both, Draiman and Donegan decided to have dinner back in their hometown of Chicago during January 2014. Without notifying their families, friends, or label, that’s the moment they stirred the sleeping beast. However, instead of simply emailing ideas, they actually flew back and forth to each other’s respective home studios for every writing session. This is the first time they collectively wrote together since 2001.

Immortalized will live up to its title and fortify their legacy further. “I think the fans will feel like it was worth the wait,” concludes Donegan. “We’ve been planning this for the past year and keeping it a secret so we can’t wait to hear the response. I hope fans realize we have a lot more left in us. This album reassured me of that. To be away from it for almost 5 years, get back in a room, write together, and tap into that fire is awesome. Part of me didn’t want to leave the studio! We still have a lot more to say. We still have a lot more to do. We’re returning stronger than ever. I thinkImmortalized shows that.”
