It is the first Disturbed album to not feature a "Parental Advisory - Explicit Content" Sticker. It is also the first Disturbed album to feature [[John Moyer]] as the bass player instead of longtime bassist and founding member [[Steve "Fuzz" Kmak]].
   
==History==
 
The track "[[Guarded]]" was released to radio stations in late June, 2005 as a teaser, and the fully promoted first single "[[Stricken (song)|Stricken]]" was released on [[July 20]], [[2005]], and was the theme song for [[World Wrestling Entertainment]] (WWE)'s pay-per-view [[WWE New Year's Revolution|New Year's Revolution]] on [[January 8]], [[2006]]. The 2nd single from the album was "[[Just Stop]]". The album also features a cover of the song "[[Land of Confusion#Disturbed cover version and video|Land of Confusion]]", originally written by [[Genesis (band)|Genesis]]. The song became the third single from the album, and the band worked with [[Todd McFarlane]] and [[Greg Capullo]] on the video (renowned comic book artists responsible for ''Ten Thousand Fists'' album cover).
 
 
This is the first album in which Disturbed's mascot "The Guy" appears full-bodied, and on the album cover. He also appears on the album cover of Disturbed's fourth studio album, ''[[Indestructible (Disturbed album)|Indestructible]]''.
 
 
A restricted-release disc was compromised, and the album became available on the peer-to-peer networks on [[July 27]], [[2005]], fifty-five days before the officially scheduled release. Most peer-to-peer sites, however, have since blocked searches for the album after requests from the copyright holder, citing the [[Digital Millennium Copyright Act]]. The disc had alternate spellings for some of the song titles: "Overburdend" and "Sacred Life" (as opposed to the actual track names "Overburdened" and "Sacred Lie").
 
 
The widely known "fan club edition" of the album never existed. An error made by marketing and website staff enabled the posting of the information of a "fan club edition" that would supposedly contain two bonus tracks. This CD does not, in fact, exist due to the aforementioned errors. A "Special Edition" of the album was published and came with the CD and a book of illustrations by McFarlane and Capullo (in the standard release the eight page CD booklet also featured their illustrations as well but not to the extent that the special edition book includes). The CD cover had a black background instead of the orange/brown gradient background on the cover of the standard release.
 
 
The song "Decadence" was featured in the video game [[Need for Speed: Most Wanted]], while "Stricken" was featured in [[New Year's Revolution (2006)|WWE New Year's Revolution 2006]] and [[Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock]]. The song "Pain Redefined" was also used in the 2008 movie ''[[Never Back Down]]''. The Album has sold over 1,549,523 copies in the US.
