Nu-metal is better than this.


This had potential but unfortunately as you can hear turned out to be a huge snoozefest. Honestly, this EP has some of the dullest and most boring moments i've heard in metalcore this year.
I'm curious what is good nu metal? Limp Bizkit is the only thing that comes to mind and it doesnt go uphill at any point. Deftones are not in that genre BTW

Korn, LP, Bizkit, Deftones (White Pony days), Adema, POD are all nu-metal bands. Any band that has a little rapping, some screaming/yelling, a few samples or turntables and just a basic power chord guitar riff are considered nu-metal.
Dude white pony is not nu metal...at. all.. Lumping Deftones with those bands is a DISGRACE...The rapping is characteristic of nu metal with the chuggy riffs, they have moments of that on around the fur at best; and Deftones made that record before nu metal was even rolling...

Funny you pick an altered remix that wasnt even on the original white pony release, they added it later. If anyone categorized white pony by one song they would be sadly misrepresenting that album, not a single song on there sounds quite like this edit of pink maggit...even picking one or two songs to categorize deftones is a travesty

Taken from wikipedia, chino's thoughts on back to school:

The band also regrets specifically "Back to School's" presence on the re-release of the album, as Moreno stated in an interview with German rock magazine Visions: "'Back to School' was a mistake.

Read my post. Deftones (White Pony days). Also Wikipedia classifies them as nu-metal:

Wikipedia isn't all facts. Didn't know Incubus was nu metal...hahah

Incubus has a little nu-metal vibe to a few songs. Wouldn't call them a nu-metal band though lol.
issues is nu metal, it is funny cuz nu metal was dead in the nineties and they r trying to revive something that should stay dead

I only listened to that song on the first page. Is the rest of the album better or worse than that song?
Worse..seems like there are two vibes going on, both being really horrible...if you like bizkit, this might be for you hahah
