A new genre of music pioneered by the early 90's band, KoRn
. Alot of people bash this style of music, saying its for possers and junk. Even going as far as to say the lyrics of these songs have no actual meaning, and the genre is just a "happier" metal, which just isnt true, and example would be KoRn's song from their first album, called "Daddy". The singer, John Davis, is cleary speaking about when he was raped by his neighbor. Oh yeah, thats real fucking happy people. Comparing Nu-metal too traditional metal is apsolutly stupid, it is not that kind of metal. Theres Metal, Heavy metal, and Death Metal, and now we have Nu-metal(probably some other types too). The genre is primarily a merging of rock, punk, rap, metal. Having generally very dark lyrics, sometimes extremly heavy rthymes, and sometimes not so heavy...its not about making the heaviest music they can....this genre was given birth by KoRn, while they were experimenting to find their bands sound. All you you bums that bash the genre need to have more respect. And no, they do not use special studio sound equipment to make it sound good, all the sounds are made by the band memebers, with the same tools any other band uses, and sound just as good live, as they do on their cd's. I'm not saying you gota like the genre, but give it the respec it deserves, and bash this Emo bullshit, and emocore or what ever....now that stuff is crap.
Nu-metal is not a true metal, it is an entirely different genre, that was simply given birth by Metal, to compare the two is entirely inaccurate.
KoRn is a great band, origanly a metal band, but gave birth to Nu-metal in their garage while experimenting with their sound.
