Anti Nu-Metal

these nu-metal bands are pretty mainstream, it seems that every forum i visit, they are the most popular mentioned (besides the post-hardcore tween stuff like Sleeping with Sirens and Black Veil Brides). I'm a fan of Slipknot, at least of their early albums, and Vol. 3, but I don't listen to them much anymore. I used to be into Linkin Park in middle school. They have since changed their sound, and i have no interest in what they are putting out now. Deftones are my favorite nu-metal band (even though I don't see them as nu-metal). I have never been into SOAD much, there are a couple of songs that i like, Question! and Prison Song are my favorites. I used to be really into Disturbed, as well. I have 4 of their albums but I don't listen to them at all anymore. Device is David Draiman's new project. Sounds good, but I can't get into them. I still listen to Marilyn Manson frequently, but i'm more into his older music. I can't stomach Limp Bizkit.
Black Veil Brides is one of the worst thing I've ever heard. Device are awesome. :D I'm sorry that last two Manson's albums were a bit weak, but I like his early work. The Golden Age of Grotesque is a very good album.

Do they really? Gosh' date=' that's funny to me. Really impressively deep knowledge base among the Wiki metal crowd. I suppose they appealed to some of the same crowd...[/quote'] Yeah I. Know. One thing. For sure they had some hot female bass players. Like Nadja PAulsen she is a looker band. The one. That just. Quit was pretty good looking

I know! Sleeping with Sirens are pretty awful too, and there are some post-hardcore bands that i will listen to. I don't know what these kids find so great about them. It's odd.

Re: Nu Metal (Yes/no)

Ill niño. Is not nu metal they are more Latin metal like soulfly. Yeah. I can few turntables. Most of them. They are Latin metal
They are just like Soulfly, but both are nu-metal, whatever Hispanic or tribal influences may contribute to the music doesn't change that. Sent from my HTC PH39100 using Tapatalk 2

Well, I like some of Korn stuff (mostly single songs, not full albums) and two albums of Soulfly. The rest of this subgenre is pure boredom for me. And another thing - maybe I'm wrong, but for me nu-metal is long gone. Even the biggest icons of this style changed eventually their music. As you can see, this genre was mainly promoted by the big labels, and so when they stopped to give attention to such bands nu-metal plague quickly disappeard. This is the difference between music made by big companies to earn money, and the music made by ordinary people in the heart of the underground. Death metal, thrash metal to count few - those genres had better and worse days in mainstream media, but they still live after so many years.

' Yeah, I really like good post-hardcore and find it pretty annoying and sad people only associate the genre with the the really shit stuff. What post-hardcore bands you into?
It is really annoying, and their attitude to whoever doesn't agree. I really love Underoath, they helped me during hard times. I also listen to Silverstein, the Color Morale, and that's really as far as it goes for 'post-hardcore' anymore. I listen to some metalcore, Norma Jean being my favorite there, and old Atreyu. What bands do you like?

What about devils. Wears Prada
I haven't listened to much, only a couple of songs. I wasn't impressed with what I heard though. I hate to be negative about music. I'm usually very compliant, but out of the many bands of this genre that i have listened to, the ones I have disliked the most seem to be Suicide Silence and the Devil Wears Prada..

Ill Nino are the more commercial-sounding of the 2, but yeah, pretty similar style. Soulfly got less nu metal on their later releases, though.

Norma Jean are pretty good. Quite like The Chariot, too. That first album is raw and heavy as fuck! They're more on the metalcore side of things, though. For really good post-hardcore I'd recommend Glassjaw (their 1st album being particularly brilliant), Refused, At The Drive-In. I'd also highly recommend letlive. for something a bit newer. Their last album, The Blackest Beautiful, was my favourite album of last year by far. :)

I actually really like Suicide Silence. Their first album is fun and brutal, but not what I'd call post-hardcore, really. Check out the bands I've mentioned for a better representation if the genre.

And the 'Most Surprised' award goes to...no one.
:lol: I wouldn't say they're a favourite of mine or anything, but their first album in particular can really hit the spot for me on occasion; if I'm fancying just straight-up speed and brutality with little in the way of song structure or 'sophistication'. It's basically Korn and Slipknot taken to the extreme, which leads me to another point... @Vladyka, I agree you don't hear too much 'pure' nu metal nowadays. It was just a fad like glam metal imo. However, I'd say about 99% of the modern mainstream metal bands owe a great deal to nu metal. Korn and Slipknot's lasting impression can be heard in the sound of so many groove metal and metalcore/deathcore bands to this day (like 'em or not). Even a fair few of the modern hardcore bands use clearly Korn/Slipknot-inspired downtuned riffs, as well as an obviously nu metal-inspired bounciness. The modern post-grunge movement (as shit as it is) also has many bands who cite Korn as an influence. Nu metal might not be very prevalent today, but the influence it had on a whole generation of heavy music fans is absolutely huge!

old Atreyu.
Oh, and if you dig Atreyu, you really owe it to yourself to check out 36 Crazyfists. They basically do what Atreyu but way better. Heavier, much stronger vocals, better hooks, just generally superior songs. Their quality never really went downhill either. Fantastic band- one of my favourites! :D

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!

    • Full length number 19 from overkill certainly makes a splash in the energy stakes, I mean there's some modern thrash bands that are a good two decades younger than Overkill who can only hope to achieve the levels of spunk that New Jersey's finest produce here.  That in itself is an achievement, for a band of Overkill's stature and reputation to be able to still sound relevant four decades into their career is no mean feat.  Even in the albums weaker moments it never gets redundant and the energy levels remain high.  There's a real sense of a band in a state of some renewed vigour, helped in no small part by the addition of Jason Bittner on drums.  The former Flotsam & Jetsam skinsman is nothing short of superb throughout "The Wings of War" and seems to have squeezed a little extra out of the rest of his peers.

      The album kicks of with a great build to opening track "Last Man Standing" and for the first 4 tracks of the album the Overkill crew stomp, bash and groove their way to a solid level of consistency.  The lead work is of particular note and Blitz sounds as sneery and scathing as ever.  The album is well produced and mixed too with all parts of the thrash machine audible as the five piece hammer away at your skull with the usual blend of chugging riffs and infectious anthems.  


      There are weak moments as mentioned but they are more a victim of how good the strong tracks are.  In it's own right "Distortion" is a solid enough - if not slightly varied a journey from the last offering - but it just doesn't stand up well against a "Bat Shit Crazy" or a "Head of a Pin".  As the album draws to a close you get the increasing impression that the last few tracks are rescued really by some great solos and stomping skin work which is a shame because trimming of a couple of tracks may have made this less obvious.
