Did you ever wonder how a Linkin Park and Eminem collaboration would sound? Pittsburgh nu-metal merchants DisasterTheory answer that question with their new single ‘Overcome’, which features the rap god himself Marshall Mathers as well as Swifty McVay from the notorious hip-hop group D12. D12 was a Hip-Hop collective that gained mainstream success under Eminem’s leadership and also featured Proof, Bizarre, Mr. Porter, Kuniva, and Swifty McVay.

From the catchy intro riff, Marshall Mathers’ classic line “Guess Who’s Back”, to Mark Thomas’ rapping as well as his singing on the chorus, ‘Overcome’ is a dream come true for every 2000s music fan. The song is a perfect marriage of hard-hitting metal guitar riffing courtesy of DisasterTheory as well as Swifty McVay and Marshall Mathers’ aggressive gangster rapping style, frontman Mark Thomas notes;
‘The lyrics are basically about struggling as an artist, coming from rough places and dealing with the haters and naysayers along the way, telling you you’ll never make it, it’s too difficult…but rebelling against the sentiment that you don’t have what it takes.’
As Marshall Mathers and Swifty McVay both grew up in Detroit, and had a rough start with their careers, it seems fitting that this song is about making it as an artist from a poor and challenging background.
More About The Band:
With hard-hitting riffs, gruff vocals, turn tables, and rapping, DisasterTheory’s style of nu-metal music will get you pumped and energized for the day. Hailing from the Pittsburgh area of Pennsylvania, USA, DisasterTheory, is the continuation of the golden age of rap metal. DisasterTheory delivers its style of emotion-filled deep lyrics, as well as angst, to the masses. Often compared to artists such as Linkin Park, Korn, and Three Days Grace, DisasterTheory takes a serious and heartfelt approach to their music from a very personal and honest perspective and then combines it with heavy drums, heavy guitars, a killer bass line, some turntables, and both clean and gruff vocals and even some rap. The inspiration DisasterTheory pulls from is as diverse as the band members. They draw inspiration from artists like Mike Shinoda, Slipknot, Bring Me The Horizon, and even some classical composers. DisasterTheory has been featured in IMAAI and West Virginia’s 100.1 WCLG, among others. DisasterTheory has also released two full-length albums since 2019, their latest being “Destination Nowhere,” and has recorded heavy metal covers of classic songs such as What’s Up, Genie In A Bottle, and Gangster’s Paradise.
