WTF is Nu-Metal?


#141

I mean bands like Body Count and Biohazard etc


#142

Great shout tbf. the most recent body count album is fucking banging, too


#143

it’s certainly a fun listen. Ernie C is great guitarist.


#144

pretty much this. Those bands were instrumental in setting the scene and crafting the elements that made up the sounds, but then Korn came along with

and Nu-Metal was born.


#145

Good Charlotte above NOFX? LOL.


#146

It’s really quite staggering how Korn have weathered the storm and remain so popular still, despite releasing a slew of poor albums since their heyday.

#148

#149


#150

Landfill indie is the technical term


#151

Metal fans innit, very loyal


#152

i listened to all of spit and oracle a couple of weeks back :smiley:


#153

Good Charlotte are a much bigger band?


#154

Remember being in SATANS HOLLOW and they played Just So You Know by AHC followed by Concubine by Converge. I spilt a pint to it, amazing


#155

Well they have got the Lifestyles of the Rich and the Famous.


#156

Im not defending it, just GC are much bigger so it makes sense why theyre higher


#157

this is all your fault tbf


#158

This is an absolute banger to be fair. I’d always assumed they had two vocalists until I saw the video very recently, as one singer and one shouty bloke (thought it was a bloke) is not an unusual combination.

Is there a name for the genre that combines clean vocals with screaming, or is it generally quite a widespread thin now?. When I first heard Trivium’s ‘Like Light to Flies’ I thought it was both cool and hilarious, reminds me a bit of Bill Bailey’s parodies of Slayer.

As a metal fan who will definitely defend Deftones and At The Drive In and mistakenly once bought a Korn album, can I just say that Mudavayne song linked above was absolutely fucking horrible.
