Live from the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in Houston, Texas, an unforgettable moment unfolded as Myles Kennedy joined Disturbed for a haunting rendition of “The Sound of Silence.” While Disturbed has hosted various guest vocalists, this duet stands as an exceptional gem, akin to Simon and Garfunkel’s enigmatic counterparts taking the stage. The performance is pure sublimity, akin to witnessing the dark twin souls of music intertwine.
The raw and haunting timbre of David Draiman’s voice merges seamlessly with Myles Kennedy’s, crafting an entirely novel dimension to the song. A captivating twist, given that the cover was already a masterpiece on its own.
Disturbed introduced their rendition in 2015, accompanied by a music video that has garnered over 90 million views on YouTube. The song’s resonance was palpable during their live appearance on the Conan Show, leading to a remarkable surprise: Paul Simon himself reaching out for their contact information.
