A metal band referencing the Holocaust is not rare. What is atypical, however, is said musicians having an actual cultural connection to the genocide.

Nu-metal band Disturbed’s fifth studio album, “Asylum,” out last month on Reprise Records, includes a track “Never Again” in which Jewish singer David Draiman screams “Exterminated by the Nazi war machine/ we will remember/ let the story be told.”

The band, formed in Chicago in 1996, has sold over 11 million records worldwide. Before joining Disturbed, singer-songwriter Draiman attended Yeshiva High School at the Wisconsin Institute for Torah Study in Milwaukee and the New England Academy of Torah in Providence, Rhode Island. He also spent an academic year studying at Neveh Zion Yeshiva in Telz-Stone, Jerusalem.

“Asylum,” the band’s fifth studio album, is heavily inspired by Draiman’s personal history. The band is currently touring in support of the album as part of the Uproar Festival with a stop in Sacramento at the Sleep Train Amphitheater on Sept. 22.

Sigh, nu-metal? Why does everyone think that...
