Disturbed’s David Draiman: The Album That Saved My Life

The Disturbed vocalist picks Metallica’s 1984 thrash masterpiece, Ride The Lightning.

In the latest episode of The Album That Saved My Life, Disturbed frontman David Draiman has singled out Metallica’s 1984 full-length Ride The Lightning as one of the most important releases during his formative years.

The power, the complexity, the aggression – there’s so many things that would attract anyone to Metallica,” says Draiman. “I think that they are the prime example of a metal band.

Creeping Death was a special song for me as a kid because that was the one that every single Jewish kid thought, ‘Metallica wrote a song for us! He wrote about the exodus of the Jews from Egypt under slavery,” he adds. “I remember the glee we used to experience… Hebrews born to serve, to the pharaoh’, that line alone was just like, ‘Yes! Vindication!’ We were recognised in a Metallica song.”
