More than a collection of unreleased tracks since The Sickness and prior, Disturbed's latest release, The Lost Children, illuminates every facet of the band's infectious sound.

One of the reasons why Disturbed stood out from the turn of the century pack is because they've always been as diverse as they are dangerous in their approach. The band wasn't afraid to take risks, while crafting pulse-pounding, arena-filling heavy metal. The Lost Children screams that loud and clear.

"Hell" opens the flood gates with some inventive and intoxicating electronic programming from guitarist and instrumental wizard Dan Donegan. It's a trademark of the band's sound and Donegan masterfully integrates the electronics and riffs like no other. From there, the song steamrolls with a deadly funk bounce from drummer Mike Wengren and a bass wallop from John Moyer. Singer David Draiman's hook ravages and roars with the intensity of timeless metal—"Burning now I bring you Hell". Then "Old Friend" fires off an eerie synth segue and harmonics intermittently from Donegan. Then the refrain kicks in and Draiman's visceral vocals take hold with one of his best refrains yet. There's a haunting hypnosis to it that carries over to "Monster" which blossoms into a fiery and fast solo from Donegan.

"Mine" is a true masterpiece. After a slow piano intro, the song exudes a raw darkness as a chugging riff death march begins. Samples pipe through as "Mine" traverses another violent landscape right from Draiman's mind. The Faith No More cover of "Midlife Crisis" nods to the original while infusing a more metallic edge, and "Living After Midnight" is a fitting tribute to Judas Priest.

Ohhh a piano intro... that sounds amazing with their dark riffs. Oh man I cant wait to hear their "death march". Why this masterpiece was not put onto a previous album, I will never know.

Piano intro wow cannot wait to hear Mine. Called a Masterpiece wonder why it wasn't included on Asylum.

That is not the intro to mine, that is call Fur Elise, it's by Beethoven... >.>

I could tell from the first 3 seconds it was, look it up. Anyways...

I cannot wait to hear mine, I hope it has more of an Asylum feel than the other B-sides.

I have to agree with Revolver. And I'm sure we're looking forward to it. I can't wait to add the B-sides to my spotify play lists. So exciting.
