Disturbed: old demo cassette, 1987

19 Apr

Disturbed were a metal band from Minnesota during the 1980s. We came across this six song demo and really wanted to share this with you! The band consisted of:

Earl Root: All Guitars & b/u vox hellnoize & screams

James Odegard: Vocals & hellnoize

Mike Nelson: Drums & Thunder

Gregg Bleaker: Bass & Rumble

This recording was made on June 15th, 1987 and had been together about month at the time of recording. There are six songs total on the demo ready to thump your ears and wake them up!











1. Kill ‘Em (Before they X)

2. Tear it Apart

3. I Don’t Kare

4. What the Fuck!?!

5. Comatose

6. Bought & Sold

We would like to thank Nancy Root for allowing us to share this with you.

    I saw them in 1988 or 89 on the south side of Des Moines, IA. I was in middle school and my brother played in a metal band which is how I ended up there.

    He had this demo and taught me some of guitar riffs. I had wondered what happened to them and thought maybe they were the band that made it big.

    This demo is so awesome and live they were great as its really stick with me all these years. I cant forget the singer screaming, “counter clockwise you dead fn maggots!”
