The Sickness Cover

The Sickness album cover

The Sickness is the debut album by Disturbed. The album was recorded in 1999 and released on March 7, 2000. Unlike their later albums, which are mixed in style, The Sickness consists primarily of heavier tracks. The Sickness has been certified 4x Platinum by the RIAA, with over 4 million copies sold in the United States alone, making it the band's most successful album. The cover of the album depicts the birth of a monster, according to David Draiman.
