LD50 was great. I never really listen to any of their follow-ups.i still like mudvayne out of nu metal era most i think, and disturbed
Disturbed... first album was nümetal with some other added flavours. Second album was not. Kind of like the direction Mudvayne went, except more developed and somehow catchier.
And that's just kind of what I'm saying about a lot of nümetal bands sliding in and out of the genre. Incubus was originally alternative metal (for their first album and whatever EPs were around that same period), nümetal for one album, but definitively not nümetal for their next, and not even the least bit anything-metal after that. Still a cool band, but far from metal. I guess one of the bands I was playing with circa 2002 was nümetal - and by then the genre was well on it's way to being uncool. You'd think we might had just as well been playing polkas, but we got tons of gigs, and even played at an all-day, several-band show where someone came up to me and told me they thought our sound was refreshing (which surprised me a bunch, since, to me, we sounded like what relevant music had sounded like 5+ years prior). Anyway, Slipknot was nümetal early on, and I guess their lyrics still reflect that, even if their sound really doesn't.
