Another tough choice on a personal level. While I think System of a Down has enjoyed more commercial success, sometimes you just want something a bit more intense…
Who’s your pick?
looks like i have another band i need to listen too.
i havent had a chance to listen to disturbed.
I like System better. Disturbed is a bit TOO Nu-Metal for me, while System goes for a bit more musical exploration.
Besides…once you listen to “Sugar”, theres no way you can give the title of more intense to Disturbed.
I likes me some system. I like disturbed too but if you’ve heard one of their songs you may as well have heard them all.
“i havent had a chance to listen to disturbed.”
Hear one or two songs and you’ll be up to speed.
Another one of my matches posted!!! Yay!!!
Anyway, I hate when people say Disturbed is more intense then SOAD…seriously, SOAD just sounds way better and Serj Tankian doesn’t sound like he has something clogged in his throat…Disturbed tried to copy all those other “nu metal” bands and well, that’s just what they accomplished…besides Serj Tankian was inspired by Jim Morrison if you all didn’t know
Generally I’d go with Disturbed.
Basically because I have a weird “thing” against songs with a meaning, and SoaD is a very political band at times.
Saying that, Serj’s Solo stuff is fantabulous.
Disturbed is really bad, I hate hate hate hate Disturbed and heavy metal.
BYOB wins this by itself.
Disturbed sucks, they’re just another band in a sea of hopefuls that cry out at SOAD’s feet. And PLEASE will someone help me get the site images back?! Everyone else can see them but I can’t! Does anyone know why?

Your internet must suck!!!
Fixed it, just a virus.
Anyone heard “Indestructable”? S’wicked
I prefer System because they are so experimental. Every time you hear a song by them it’s different. For example, Tentative is absolutely nothing like Old School Hollywood, just as Roulette is very different from Streamline. I like that it all has the same basic feel with massive deviations in the details.
Mr. Jack is awesome, the lyrics remind me of Riders on the Storm
All Disturbed songs sound the same, and SOAD gets just plain annoying sometimes
“I hate hate hate hate Disturbed and heavy metal.”
You, sir, have just made an eternal enemy (no pun intended)….
Disturbed. Disturbed. Disturbed. How many times do I have to say it? SOAD is alright, but Sarj’s voice annoys me at times. I mean there is no comparison. Disturbed dominates regardless. Disturbed elimates its enemies and if SOAD is considered an enemy, it is an enemy.
He might just mean sucky bands like Disturbed and Slipknot
DUDE! Disturbed RULES!!! check out this new video I found for Indestructible! distrubed with a bunch of pro boarders!!
Serj Tankin is a legend and SOAD are awesome so they win by default!
All you DISTURBED haters wouldn’t know a good band if it bit you in the ass! Draiman is a great song writer and has a great rock voice. DISTURBED is the best up and coming rock band in the world! And for those who haven’t listend to them your missing out!
No actually “Bill”, the singer sounds like he has a pickle in his throat and their music all sounds the same
Bill, Disturbed isn’t “up and coming”, their been there done that. Nothing changes at all in their music. It’s time they either stop making music, or make an album using tribal African instruments.
If Serj or Daron were alone with no instruments, they’d be better than Disturbed.
Daron is the 30th greatest Metal Guitarist of all time.
Lol, John Dolomayan is a good drummer though
Did Thepocalypse happen to watch that greatest guitarists thing too?? Loleth.
Anyone big into snowboarding? Was looking for X Games 13 results to see how Trevor Hiatt did and found this clip. Sick clip, but no X Games stats. Anyone? And its got a nasty disturbed song in the background….TOTALLY AMAZING VIDEO!!!
ok seriously this is almost just as bad as the master chief lovers. disturbed is a great band i just saw them in concert over the weekend and they were great. all of their songs are original. and if you don’t like metal oh well you’ld just be picking soad because they play a different type of music. well kind of. if you saw some of the half-ass nu metal bands i have seen then you would relize that disturbed is one of the greatest metal bands out there right now. oh and Baron Somebody please if you actualy listened to their music you’ld know that it doesn’t all sound the same. and you would know what trying to talk with a ”pickle” in your mouth would sound like since you always have a ”PICKLE”(olo )in your mouth. i am a fan of soad myself but it’s not fair to critizize disturbed the way some people are.
ok Let me tell you serj tankain is one of the most talented singers since sabastian bach from skid row. He can sing almost anything. He is the like the harmony of heavey metal songs. i figure that u can only choose soad b/c distrtubed has a talkbox wich modifies your voice
tie tie tie tie tie tie tie tie tie tie
that is all
no no no no no no no no no no
THAT is all
Disturbed…..end of story. Not stating a reason. BTW sugar isn’t intense….at all. Listen to some sickness if you want something intense.
“Disturbed…..end of story. Not stating a reason. BTW sugar isn’t intense….at all. Listen to some sickness if you want something intense.”
All disturbed songs sound the same. They are good but all the same.
That’s my reason for System being better. Variety.
Indestructible is one of the finest songs ever for Working out, playing a particularly difficult section of a videogame or just looking for inspiration if you’re roleplaying.
For that and that alone I have to vote disturbed.
SOAD are a fantastic Band, but a little… I’m not sure how to describe it. Eclectic. The songs almost have rhythm, but something just sound a little off. Its a personal taste thing. Maybe I just need to “crank up da bass” more when listening to them
No they dont!?! Ever listen to www.youtube.com/watch?v=vPFETr5ubN8&feature=related believe?
Disturbed… Ohh waa ahh ahh ahhh!…. Im F***** it up come on get down with the sickness…
Both bands are great favorites of mine and I’ll call it a tie. A lot of people say that Disturbed has very static music with very little innovation, and i may agree to that for the most part. Still, they make some of the best music out there, rigid or not. And SOAD is just wild and utterly sick, gotta love’em both.
@Whacko- i agree completely it is a tie the bands are equally awesome system are random and disturbed make mad ass noises oooh ahhh ahhh ahhh ahhh
I’ve listened to hours upon hours of Disturbed, and quite a bit of SoaD… that stated, I’d have to say they are equals. Disturbed gets monotonous sometimes, and SoaD gets annoying sometimes. They are great bands, but Kataklysm beats them both :p
If you don’t know Kataklysm, check them out. The drummer is epic. Martin Maurais in their song “Blood on the Swans” kicks ass.
I would say disturbed win this hearing their new album
