This is NOT a "who is better" thread. However, as of late, I have been thinking about nu-metal and just alternative metal in genre. And I feel the need to place korn, system of a down, and deftones in a very similar category. Though deftones is nearing a different panel of sound these days (shoegaze, alternative rock, etc) and korn is always trying out and experimenting new things like dubstep in their music, I feel that they are really the big 3 from the start. Take a look at their first albums. All very hardcore, raw albums, (and some of the best albums ever written in alt.metal overall).

It's interesting how different bands seem to share similar roots in the beginning, no matter how they were presented (nu metal, alt. metal) in those first few years, and seem to support (or hate?) the other band, and seem to rub off in one way or the other (vocals - chino, serj, and johnathan all share styles/sounds in a few songs, demos, ep's)

Discuss.

Modern rock would be better suited for your shenanigans. Nu metal is not metal.

I actually really don't care who is and isn't gay, guys. Now, please take your dildos elsewhere.


Is this code for "Hey guys please bring your dildos to my place so we can have a homo sex 3 way"?

No, I judge people based on how similar they are to me.
The greater the similarity, the more of a total ****ing **** they are.


Metal is like an apple. Everything is good except for the core

I was never a fan of deftones. I think call their heavy period Nu-Metal I think you need to throw Linkin Park's contribution to that scene as part of a "Big" whatever.

Yeah, Deftones are for insecure tr00 metalheads and Pitchfork-followers that feel a need to have at least one token nu metal band. Boring as ****. I'd take the most obnoxious Korn album over anything as bland as White Pony.
