Heaviest Nu-Metal Bandsmetaldude8
The Top Ten
Well, the band members refuse to identify Slipknot as a Nu Metal band. They referred to the band as "Metal Metal" at one point.
I also need to point out that Joey Jordison used to play for Grindcore bands and Mick Thompsom played guitar for a Death Metal band prior to joining Slipknot, alongside the band citing Emperor, Mayhem and Dimmu Borgir as influences, indicating that Slipknot had more influence from Extreme Metal, compared to other Nu Metal bands who were normally inspired by Grunge bands.
This should probably explain why Slipknot, when compared to other Nu Metal bands, is very aggressive. - CrimsonShark
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 was to heavy to be considered nu-metal, the rest is though...V 8 Comments
Around the Fur and Adrenaline, enough' said. - metaldude8
Soulfly s not nu-metal,
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
System of a Down is heavier than Korn... Don't believe me? Listen to: Sugar, Prison Song, and Suite Pee
While Mushroomhead leans more toward Industrial Metal than nu-metal in my personal opinion, they are close enough to be compared, so I'll let it slide. Let me get one thing clear... Mushroomhead is a good band, but they're not for everyone. They have purposefully limiting production value on some of their songs which while it's not everyone's cup of tea, it can make songs more dark and sinister. One of these examples is Xeroxed, which is by far the heaviest song I can say that I have heard from a nu-metal band. Not even Slipknot can compare. - ThatoneMetalhead
Sure, MushroomHead came before Slipknot, but that does not mean anything. This band is nowhere near Slipknot level. - GREATEST
Check out Bodies, Hate, and Think. Those are their heaviest songs
They are fairly heavy, but they are not very good. - ThatoneMetalhead
Heavy, but not very good...
They're not a nu-metal band! - metaldude8
There die MF die will blow your mind listen it they are very awesome
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
I wish this band was more well known. It would take the top spot for sure. Just listen to Rot ONCE, and you will immediately know why. I mean, Rot isn't even their heaviest song, but it gives you a good idea of what level they are. - ThatoneMetalhead
Heavier than a pool full of tar.

How is Linkin Park on this list? - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
One of my favorite nu metal bands. Their "Through the Eyes" album was amazing back in the day and still kicks ass now!
