Meaning and History

Disturbed Logo History

The group has had several logos, but the most legendary is depicted on the cover of the Believe album. It appeared in 2002. Before that, representatives of alternative metal had several other iconic options.

What is Disturbed?

It is a music metal-rock band from the USA, formed in 1994 in Chicago, Illinois. Initially, it was called Brawl, and only two years later, it was renamed Disturbed.

2000 – 2002

At that time, the band used the image of The Guy as a logo. This is the musicians’ mascot, personifying the Archangel Gabriel, who is essentially a destroyer. The emblem first appeared on The Sickness album. It had no face – only empty eye sockets, raised eyebrows, and a snarling smile.

Five years later, it appeared on the Ten Thousand Fists album. There, The Guy was presented in the image of a young man in a torn cloak with a hood. In subsequent works, he was depicted in fire, shackled in chains, and in the form of the Dark Messiah.

2002 – 2005

During this period, another legendary version appeared. It consists of two parts: verbal and graphic. The musicians chose a Kabbalistic sign placed in a circle for the label. It is four religious symbols combined into one emblem: Muslim crescent, pagan pentagon, Christian cross, and Jewish Star of David. Its idea lies in the unity of religions. Above it is the name of the rock-metal group.

Then, another well-recognized version appeared. It is executed in a silver metallic color with a 3D effect and is located on a dark red background. The name of the group is golden; the album name is black.

2008 – 2010

At this time, the musicians decided to change the brand name, leaving only the inscription. The letters are dark gray, capitalized, and complemented by serifs and highlights.

2010 – 2015

Designers placed the word Disturbed in a black rectangle, making the letters thinner. They became clear, legible, and large.

2015 – 2018

The current version looks like the crossed-out name of the music group. The color palette is light metallic on a white background. Above each sign, there are elongated shadows, as if they are illuminated from the back.

2018 – today

Disturbed Logo 2018-present

The current logo appeared on the cover of the Evolution album, released in 2018. And it’s again text without an icon, whose letters have been turned into graphic elements. This time, they look empty because they consist of a thin black frame on a white background. The symbols are wide, geometric, and even smooth. Sharp and rounded corners are distributed fifty-fifty – for example, the letter “D” has two sharp angles and two rounded ones. And so with all other signs. Each letter stands separately, at a medium distance from each other, and they do not touch at all.

Font and Colors

Disturbed Emblem

If the first logos featured graphics, the latest ones do not. The role of the graphic image is passed to the text, where each letter is a separate drawn symbol. Starting in 2008, the word “Disturbed” has been reproduced in different ways: ornate, with serifs, bold, crossed out, and thin. Moreover, the design has moved from complex to simple: in the modern version, there are no ornate elements – it is extremely laconic.

The font in each case is individual, developed based on a certain font but with radical changes. Thus, there are variants with spikes, serifs with the “chip” effect, elongated legs, and voids.

Disturbed Symbol

The color combination is more stable: it has always remained monochrome. On most albums, the emblem is executed in black and white. The exception was the logos from 2015-2018, where beige and gray colors were used in the design.
