I wonder if Norg is doing that intentionally. Looking at his posts back in 2009, they were still that way back then too, so probably not.

I was a fan of some nu-metal bands back in the day, like Korn, Deftones and System of a Down, and I still like the latter two. Especially Deftones had something special on their first three albums. Overall, though, not much interested me. Slipknot and Limp Bizkit, for example, I never quite understood their thing. I don't mind the seeming ineptitude of certain musicians in the genre, I'm a Bob Dylan fan after all.

Seriously, I thought that this whole Nu Metal thing was something of the 90's. What's the controversy? A bunch of musicians inspired by theatrical Rock and simple Metal with a knowledge of how to sell themselves to a bunch of kids release a bunch of simplistic heavy Rock that sounds like a pretentious and over-serious version of EMF's Stigma but without anything that made it good including the bombastic Pop edge that made it an interesting listen or any weird stuff going on like the videos that made the teenyboppers wonder what drugs they were doing (Career-kills, I love them!).

Most of them come off as musician-businessmen who know the Kiss Concept (Hi, Slipknot!), Grunged up and ready to sell in the trailer parks, suburbs, and elsewhere where there's an interest in this stuff. They just threw out the old time fun and threw in the Grunge angst with slight Industrial bits here and there. As for the lyrics, sorry, but there's nothing in there but the same old same old "Me Me Me!!! Whine Whine Whine!!!" without touching on anything new or political most of the time. Their ability to play usually is pretty good, and some bands hire good graphics artists who capture the mood, but it's nothing to get all worked over about. You either like it or lump it. (and I pretty much lump it with possible song exceptions...I'll think of them when I get to them.)

But this thread is about Nu Metal, not about him. Furthermore, you might be offending him by saying that.

You have a very skewed idea of what constitutes Nu Metal if you think Glassjaw and Death Grips have anything to do with Nu Metal.

There's no comma or period in "you're".
