Just HOW does one mistake Slayer as Nu Metal? - CaptainMowzker

Best nu metal band ever

Some may say Diabolus in Musica was somewhat Nu Metal inspired but that's one album out of the many of this band. - cjWriter1997

Yes, that album was a big mistake they made and ruined their reputation but one album doesn't make them a Nu Metal band. - Metal_Treasure

They’re nowhere near nu metal, the closest thing they’ve ever done to it is that abomination Diabolus In Musica but that sure as hell doesn’t mean they’re nu metal - NightmareCinema

This band is post- grunge not Nu Metal. They have ZERO Nu Metal aspects and don't come remotely close. - CaptainMowzker

Both this and Saint Asonia definitely don't qualify. I don't see Adam or Matt rapping a lot. - NuMetalManiak
