This post has almost nothing to do with adoption, unless you could consider the line “Silence, like a cancer grows”. I did think of adoption reform when I heard it in this song. Keep talking, sharing, fighting, reforming, and more. Only with such lack of silence can we cure the cancer that is American adoption practice.
Now, to the song and video. For those that do not know, Disturbed is an American heavy metal band from Chicago (yay!). I have been a long time fan of them (and Godsmack and Five Finger Death Punch and Finger Eleven and and and…). Surprised? I am quite the heavy metal head banger. My husband finds it amusing (he is not).
Disturbed had been on a hiatus until the August 2015 release of their album Immortalized. This new album has an incredible cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s Sound of Silence. Do not let the heavy metal reference deter you. You must listen to this song and David Draiman’s vocals. The video is pretty bad ass as well.
Remember, slience, like a cancer grows.
