Bands Considered Nu Metal That Really Aren't
The Top Ten
Evanescence is more towards Alternative Rock/ Alternative Metal not Nu Metal. - BoredJeff02
Despite what people say, the closest the band has ever come to Nu Metal was their Self Titled debut and even then they were closer to Faith No More than Korn.
Seems for the most part an Alternative Metal/ Hard Rock band heavily influenced by Alice In Chains, Metallica and Pantera. Their Self Titled debut had some Nu Metal influences and so did a bit of Awake but it didn't really outweigh the Alice In Chains influences.
Most of the bands music is simply very catchy Industrial Metal, the most Nu Metal they have gotten was Shadow Zone, which had more Korn like riffs to it, but for the most part they have had their own sound.
Their first album The Sickness was definitely Nu Metal, even Believe had some Nu Metal influence in it, but ever since Ten Thousand Fists, they have been just regular Heavy Metal, Hard Rock, Alternative Metal band.
Their first two albums could count as Nu Metal yes, but not any more. They seem more alternative/electronic rock now then they were before.
Nu metal and rap metal are two different things.
They used to be nu metal, but not anymore.
Tool is an excellent band that is hard to categorize. They're definitely not Nu Metal. Progressive Metal, I doubt it. Shock Rock? I think its too heavy to be Rock, it's got to be Metal. I love Metal, but sometimes I think we hung up on metal genres. If you can't categorize it, then I would say its just metal!
