Disturbed have launched a new live version of ‘The Sound of Silence’ with strings, timpani, guitars and piano arrangement
February 24, 2016
When Disturbed premiered their cover for Simon and Garfunkel’s ‘The Sound of Silence’ and launched a music video for this heartfelt song, the world discovered the other, softer, lyrical yet even more powerful side of the band. As the track resonated so much among listeners and brought Disturbed new audience, especially after its recent live debut in Fargo, N.D., the band has decided to share a new live video for ‘The Sound of Silence’. You can check it out below.
The video was recorded on February 19 in British Columbia, at the Encana Events Centre in Dawson Creek. It’s not just a regular performance of ‘The Sound of Silence’: the group was accompanied onstage by local high school music teacher and other musicians who enriched the live musical backing with the touching sounds of strings. You will hear piano, guitars, timpani and strings build a powerful moving picture with Draiman’s deep vocals in the foreground.
