(Metal Hammer) Disturbed drummer Mike Wengren says the band don't have to distance themselves from the nu-metal movement - because they were never part of the genre in the first place.

The band's debut album The Sickness was released in 2000, as Limp Bizkit, Papa Roach and Linkin Park were riding the crest of the nu-metal wave. Wengren tells Westword: "I don't think we were ever a nu-metal band to begin with. I just think we happened to come out around the same time.

"Unfortunately, as great as some of those bands were, they're not around anymore. I think that we have a connection with the fans, we write music about real stuff, and people are able to connect to that, whether it's through the power of the music or being able to connect through the experiences of the lyrics. I think they get it, so they stuck with us for all these years." Read more here.
