My Guilty Pleasure #7 - Nu Metal

My Guilty Pleasure


I kinda always liked nu metal, although I never knew what it was called until couple of years ago I stumbled onto a classification of the genre with the examples of the bands, and suddenly understood "OMG! These are all the bands I'm listening to!"
Nu metal (also known as nü-metal, aggro-metal, neo-metal or new metal) is a subgenre of heavy metal. It is a fusion genre which combines elements of metal with other genres, including hip hop and industrial. It is classed as part of alternative metal.
 Why do I like it?
The musical input is minimal, includes heavy, almost bare beat and doesn't distract from the real power of the voice of the vocalist. In other words, - it goes straight to your gut.

In fact it's not dissimilar to urban fantasy.
Here are few of my favorite songs.
Warning: first video contains lots of flashes of light, so if you're sensitive to it do not watch it.

 LOUNA

 Kick-ass, leather clad Russian girlie with an absolute powerhouse of a voice.

A PERFECT CIRCLE
Absolute musical geniuses, I love their sound and their lyrics!
DEFTONES
Started listening to them in Russia. Had to pre-order CDs, and still remember faces of all the big tattooed guys when a little girlie came to pick up the stuff in their dingy alternative music shops :D Priceless.
DISTURBED
I don't like all of their tracks, but some of the old ones are really really good!
ROB ZOMBIE
To be honest the only song of his I love is Dragula, but what a song!
There are many more, but these 5 can give you a general idea of what is the sound of nu metal. Honorary mentions: Limp Bizkit, Korn and Queen of The Damned soundtrack. Not everyone cup of tea, I know, but do give me a shout if you like any of these, Ciao!  P.S. See the rest of My Guilty Pleasure posts in Features.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
