Hello Darkness, My Old Friend
You’d never think it’s the same person who gave you Down With The Sickness. I somehow just can’t wrap my head around it. You know why? Because it’s indescribably good. They didn’t just do justice to the original version by Simon & Garfunkel way back in 1964, but Disturbed’s rendition almost outshines it. Quite a rare thing to happen especially when we’re talking of well-loved classics.
The level of emotion in this performance is outstanding. He is a master of passion. Just look at Conan’s reaction in the end — that face said it all. If this doesn’t give you chills and goosebumps, I don’t know what will. It’s way up there with the BEST covers. It’s hauntingly awesome and exudes pure power and talent.
All hail David Draiman! It’s like the song simply waited to be covered by him. It’s too epic I just had to play it over and over again.
