they sound the same but theres a part that bfmv plays that is singuler notes played fast insted of disturbeds part that is just barr cords slid up and down the neck, look up the tabs and you'll see what i meen, they sound exatly the same otherwise
Come on man. Every metal band in the last century has used that same 4 eigth note idea (the da da da da) at one time or another. Anyone influenced by Metallica has used that type of riff. Down With The Sickness riff was more believable to be stolen from the other track, but this was obviously coincidence.
