    I like Breaking Benjamin but I think that's about it these days.

    Feel bad that nu-metal has a negative connotation. Korn was borderline revolutionary when they first started, I think they'll be looked upon favorably for years to come. I'll say this anytime Limp Bizkit is brought up, they're unreal musicians. Fred's cornball lyrics and personality can be off putting, but Wes and the rest of them do some pretty cool stuff.

    One of my favorite newer nu metal bands; reminds me of Alice In Chains/Nirvana + Deftones

  5. Korn's new song is not bad. Reminds me of LIP and FTL era Korn.

    I still have a massive soft spot for Nu-Metal. Can still jam to Limp Bizkit, Korn, Deftones, POD, American Head Charge, Mudvayne, System of A Down, Slipknot, Papa Roach. The list goes on and on in fairness.

    I have nothing more to add to what has been said. Just love it all even if it's not the best genre. Happy for bands like Papa Roach, Slipknot, KoRn who were able to overcome being labeled as just Nu Metal and are still going.

    I've been so hooked lately. I'm hoping we get a genre revival soon.

    You just might be in luck. From Ashes To New are a great nu-metal "revival" band. Dunno if there's a full movement but these guys are a thing and I like them quite a lot.

    Bumping this thread to say that Ultraspank's Progress was one of the best nu metal albums of the era and it's criminal that it never got more love.

    Sevendust and POD are still favorites of mine, not sure if they fit the Nu Metal genre or not but I think that's what they were considered.

    They never really blew up, but this dude has such a voice on him.

    So I'll also add Motograter to this. I was HUGE into the whole "shock rock" scene when nu-metal was pretty big. Thought these dudes looked badass and they used a custom made instrument.

    2 years ago I won tickets to see Motograter, Flaw, and Dope. It was.... dope.

    I honestly couldn't believe how many people were going crazy for Dope; a band I assumed was well past their prime but their fans were passionate.

    And one last one while I'm still at work. I will fight until the day I die for the first two Mudvayne records. Getting to watch Ryan Martinie play live during the Lost and Found tour in high school was fucking mesmerizing.

    Will also defend LD 50 forever. One of the best metal albums released in my lifetime.

    I really dig their first 3 albums. I'm not so sure what happened to their last 2....

    Taproot, Flaw and Sevendust are all time favorites.

    Going to see Static X, Devildriver and Dope in a couple weeks.

    I can go deep with the early 2000s nu metal. Anyone remeber No One or Ultraspank or Dry Kill Logic or Unloco?
