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