I think you're perceiving 'heavy' as having more to do with the musical style or overall sound/vibe of the band. Chevelle isn't as heavy as those bands or albums, but their guitars sound boatloads better IMHO. Roots would get my vote for possibly the heaviest album EVER lol, but that's got more to do with the bass, drums, musical style, and vibe overall. The guitars are cool but nothing all that special, it's their interaction with everything else that kicks so much ass.
BTW, agreed on Disturbed... someone's smokin the wacky tobaccy
