Nu Metal – Rising to prominence post-grunge 90’s big down tuned heavy on the groove riff based mostly devoid of guitar solos, taking cues from alternative heavy hitters like Rage Against The Machine, Faith No More, Mr. Bungle and stylistic elements of hip hop, alternative, funk. An image often sporting baggy clothes/sports labels rather than denim, leather & spike clad traditionalists. Some bands most commonly associated with Nu metal are Korn, Deftones, P.O.D., Limp Bizkit, Sevendust, Mudvayne, Mushroomhead, Powerman 5000, Staind, Coal Chamber, Godsmack, Linkin Park, Papa Roach. Slipknot sometimes (maybe incorrectly) get lumped in this genre and others such as Disturbed & Drowning Pool have veered toward a more Heavy Metal sound in recent times.
