I mean every single word of that title. Even if you haven’t heard of Simon and Garfunkel before, you’ve definitely heard some of their music; especially this song. The lyric “hello darkness my old friend” from the song “The Sound Of Silence” has been used in numerous funny Youtube videos. Now, it’s being sung by a heavy metal band.
Don’t worry, this isn’t your usual metal cover. It’s a grand and melodious cover of “The Sound Of Silence” that is wonderfully unique. Backed up by a talented and capable orchestra, David Draiman and the rest of the metal band ‘Disturbed’ knock this song out of the park in a beautiful homage to some of the biggest folk rock legends of America.
