Here will be the reviews if you find them and want to post them here is the first from artist direct

Disturbed's cover of Simon & Garfunkel's "The Sound of Silence" remains a total left turn, but they manage it with aplomb and poise. They turn the track into a different kind of heavy altogether with stark production and strings contrasted with a cinematic vocal performance. It shows that they continue pushing the envelope. "Who Taught You How To Hate" ends the record with a fitting explosion of riffs, drums, bass, and that signature howl, yielding one last catharsis.

The clean guitar instrumental "The Eye of the Storm" tempers a bluesy lead with a stark hum, setting the stage for the drilling groove of the title track. Draiman's voice echoes with an orchestral prowess bolstered by Donegan's deft leads and jackhammer riffs. Each rhythm drives a near danceable bounce home that's perfect for the pit. It's an a propos opener for Immortalized.

In the end, Disturbed are back and bigger and better than ever. That sleep allowed the beast to wake up even fiercer. Hard rock has its kings back and they've got their best record to rule with.

Input confession: I'm afraid the music of Disturbed me has never really developed. It does not affect me, does not offer pleasant background for what-so-ever, neither failed nor varied. And even if the songs are to motivate to something often incite any Fight against anybody or that does not work with me. Band faithful buyers from more than 13 million albums to see the safe completely different. This deluxe edition of "Immortalized" extends over 16 songs in almost one hour and was in Las Vegas with Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Five Finger Death Punch) was added. What normal band ever comes up with the idea that loud to locate superficial, fixated on money and pompous desert city as a source of inspiration?

Truly inspired, the representative Barney and riot songs with tricked-out guitars and any fear mongers, like the title track or "Open your eyes", not. In a few halfway good moments approaching Iron Maiden, in the bad you about Simon & Garfunkel's covert "The Sound of Silence". Slipped into the old rehearsed about Metallica ballads corset begins the piano primer with acoustic guitar, strings to press murder moderately to the lacrimal gland. So it sounds like when a metalhead total it is in a talent show made to convince the jury and spectators of how great and really he can sing. Ebendas fails then.

It is very much felt on "Immortalized", at least lyrically. In "You're Mine" is the motto "'Till the day you arrived / Suddenly I felt alive", but feel alive is something fundamentally different at the right feeling. The white "Fire it up", is smoked in the hookah outset, but it is not just going to blazing hellfire, more concerned with the expressions: ". I like to fire it up / It feels so right" Although discussed subsequently, that it feels just right, when the pharmaceutical Smoked Bestqualität equivalent. This is sung, as were behind each verse twenty exclamation. "Sometimes darkness can show you the light", white "The Light". Take away the distorted guitars, slow down the rhythm and every Popstarlettchen could exploit this song. In moans and cries of harmless "Who" is Disturbed seems already to be sent to Bon Jovi. And who has ever flammable surges of emotion.

Sorry guys its been translated but its a review a poor one at that

Disturbed Immortalized Album Review
by Sylvie Lesas

Disturbed release their highly anticipated 6th studio album Immortalized on August 21 via Reprise Records. It was helmed by producer Kevin Churko (FFDP, Papa Roach, Rob Zombie, In this Moment…).

Like the phoenix, they rebirth and have the sacred fire again. After a four year hiatus, Disturbed return with a sound much more immense. They rise stronger than ever, fierce as a lion, with style, better than before. The Vengeful One was a warning. Disturbed reach a whole other level of creativity and originality in an eclectic offering. It is different and unexpected beyond your expectations. The music speaks for itself. Mike Wengren’s heavy hitting drums leveled by Dan Donegan’s flawless guitar skills take control. Both vigorous and varied, the rhythm section serves a set of powerful lyrics. David Draiman does rarely stay in the same range on the vocals throughout the songs. He leaves his comfort zone and delivers a mix of styles to tell stories that will resonate with you.  His vulnerability shines through The Sound of Silence. His singing is very nuanced, deep and roaring.

They complement each other well in a new and natural way. They leave, enough space open to allow the other to shine. Perfect harmony together in tone, texture and aesthetic. Each song is better than the previous. They perpetuate their great sense of groove. That ’s evident on every song. Each is a huge potential single especially The Light, What Are you Waiting for ?, Open your Eyes.
The album is hook-filled wrapped around positive (The Light), heartbreaking (Save Our Last GoodBye), family inspired (Who Taught You How To Hate), dark lyrics (The Vengeful One) among others.

Immortalized features a multitude of textures, rhythms, tempo and a variety in dynamics. Comparing to their discography, it does not seem to be too cohesive anymore. It makes wonder how their hiatus has been a good thing (even if you have no desire to admit it).
The bluesy instrumental The Eye Of The Storm creates an atmosphere of curiosity that grips you from the beginning of the album. Disturbed put more than a new take on their trademark. Often psyched by their way to turning their musical identity into something more grandiose and totally different. Never Wrong is a striking example. Tracks like Immortalized, and What Are you Waiting for, are fierce, life power anthems. Best tunes if you’re feeling down. The music carries out admirably the spirit of lyrics. Open Your Eyes reveal how much they have gained in uniqueness in their sound. They expand their musical horizons. It’ s got a killer thunderous drum attack accented by riffs to die for. All the sections enter in symbiosis to create an intoxicating tune. The light is another instant anthem. The hook is unforgettable. Kind of song that makes you feel better. You remember about Device (Draiman’s side project)? The album showcased an evolution that Disturbed might have taken. It was a huge missed opportunity but fixed today with You’re Mine.

Save Our Last Goodbye brings to mind various emotions. Despite being sad, it is the most beautiful song crafted ever written by Disturbed. The sadness of this track contrasts with the lightness of Fire it Up. Everyone is free to appreciate the topic or not, but the vocals are backed by a superb sizzling rhythm section. This one cooks up a real hurricane through the album. Their cover of Simon and Garfunkel ’s classic song The Sound of Silence is unexpected. The incorporation of orchestral parts gives the song a new dimension. A real attractive cover not too far from the original, but superbly arranged. Inspired by his son, Who Taught you How to Hate, is a storm of truth. It ’s well written.

4 years but it is worth the wait. Disturbed unleashed with Immortalized the gates of a new era in the alt-metal community. They shaped the genre into something truly reinvigorated. A stream of passion, a storm that carries you where you wish.

Disturbed – Immortalized
AUGUST 17, 2015
Four years in waiting, fans of nu-metal band Disturbed have been left in anticipation wondering where their beloved band went. About a month ago, Disturbed surprised everyone, announcing they returned from their hiatus and will be releasing their next album this Friday (08/21). Luckily, they made their upcoming album “Immortalized” available to stream prior to its release, allowing me the opportunity to share my thoughts of the album. Let’s just say the wait was well worth it for dedicated fans. As for the casual listener, well…

Much of “Immortalized” follows the same formula as any other Disturbed album. David Draiman’s easily identifiable clean and dirty vocals, the oversimplified lyrics, Dan Donegan’s chordy verses with quick paced solos, and a deep rhythm section provided by drummer Mike Wengren and bassist John Moyer. Honestly, there isn’t much that makes this album stand out, even more from what I felt was their weakest release in their 2010 album “Asylum.” It’s almost as if they found a formula with their widely praised debut “The Sickness,” and haven’t deviated from it in over a decade. Because of this, the casual Disturbed listener (let’s just say that’s where I fall into) feels like they’ve heard the same thing over and over again.

With all the hype going into this album, I expected much more out of “Immortalized.” Even from the first two tracks, “The Eye of the Storm” and the title track are very underwhelming. I felt no passion or excitement upon the first listen, unlike other opening tracks like “Indestructible” and “Ten Thousand Fists” from the albums of the same names. At least those songs had catchy hooks and lyrics, with beats I couldn’t help but hum or sing along. After my first listen, I couldn’t help wondering where the guitar solos from previous albums went, only appearing in a few tracks (“They Eye of the Storm,” “What Are You Waiting For”). Two downers come in “Save Our Last Goodbye,” a song about a lost friend relying too much on phone sounds and busy signals, and “The Sound of Silence,” a Simon and Garfunkel cover that is far too slow for such a “heavy” album. Even the hit single “Fire It Up” is undeniably cheesy, with the sound of a bong hit taking up the first 30+ seconds of the song, followed by more uninspiring lyrics about why it’s OK to smoke marijuana. Much of the album comprises of similar sounding orchestrations, open notes from the guitar, mimicking bass lines, and tom-heavy drum beats. The saving grace of this album is Draiman’s recognizable vocals, a melodic clean voice that easily fits in with the rest of the band.

Luckily, there are a few tracks that shine on “Immortalized,” including the first single “The Vengeful One,” the surprisingly soft (yet successful) “The Light,” and the closing track “Who Taught You How To Hate.” I found the music video for “The Vengeful One” more fascinating than the song itself, containing cryptic and disturbing video of a supernatural being slaughtering demonic figures. It’s catchy, albeit brief. “The Light” is much more interesting, with its industrial backdrop and finger-picking intro. Draiman especially stands out on this uplifting track, proving that you don’t need to be cliche to be metal. Moyer perfectly complements with his backing vocals, something I can’t recall happening in any other Disturbed album. If Disturbed hopes to evolve their sound on future records, they need to follow the pattern set in this song. “Who Taught You How To Hate” closes off the album on a high note, with its simple but repeatable chorus. It’s the most satisfying track on the album’s second half, perfectly placed to leave listeners pondering if they should give the album another go.

Simply put, there are more misses than hits on “Immortalized.” In sticking with what they know, though, Disturbed is able to reinvigorate its dedicated audience, providing more material in their wide selection of work. Although the song quality is lacking on the album, Disturbed perfectly generates songs with simple and repeatable structures. If I were to play anything they’ve released in the car, I could learn each of their songs’ hooks, beats, and lyrics by my third listen through. In a way, that’s part of the fun in listening to the band; I feel like I can relate and rock out to their music without too much thought.

Although “Immortalized” might not be their best record (I’m more of a “Believe” kind of guy), it is still worth a listen. Especially geared towards fans of radio-friendly metal bands like Slipknot, Five Finger Death Punch, and Godsmack, listeners will enjoy the familiar riffs and vocals. You can support Disturbed by checking out their album on iTunes, due to be released this Friday. You can also follow them on Facebook for the latest Disturbed news. I am pleased to hear that Disturbed is back, but I am crossing my fingers that they will stray away from the formula they’ve become too comfortable with for their next album.
