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.
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 DISTURBED ROB ZOMBIE Features.
