Considering they have nine members, I would assume they have a high collective weight. - ThatoneMetalhead
I think Slipknot is more of a mixture of genres. I think it's kind of like it's own little sub genre made of maggots and hate.
Iowa is the heaviest
The Iowa album is the epitome of heavy albums.

These guys are Korn, but much heavier. Also, arguably heavier than most songs by Slipknot. For an example, listen to Friend (Fiend is also good, but don't confuse them.), because that is their heaviest. - ThatoneMetalhead

They're not a nu-metal band! - metaldude8
Disturbed is an American heavy metal band from Chicago, Illinois . The band comprises vocalist David Draiman, bassist John Moyer, guitarist Dan Donegan, and drummer Mike Wengren . They are known for songs like "Down With the Sickness" and "Stricken" .
Disturbed is the best Nu metal band of all time, they make consecutive good songs if its not good its amazing if its not, its murderously awesome, if not, its an emotional rollercoaster of hardcore ecstacy and fourth dimension feelings you'll only know when you hear their songs. Only a few of all their albums combined are not good, but a far from horrible. In fact I've never heard a horrible song from them. Even their latest album shows that they never run out of good music ideas and will never disappoint you as long as they are alive and making music. (Nutty-Nyc)- I listen to Black metal and I think disturbed is as good as the best of them from Bathory to Immortal. Try sickened, stupify, sons of plunder, old friend and the night... You'll hooked for life
Heavy and funny.
