    Nu Metal to me wasn't just the rap tracks on metal sound....it was just that mid to late 90s influx of a ton of bands playing loud music.

    I was also into it in high school (to be fair, i like pretty much any kind of music), but I dont see how Korn even fits into the mold that this guy is suggesting.

    I saw Sevendust in 2001 locally. Stereomud and Drowning Pool(original singer) opened for them. Sevendust was amazing live. But after their 2nd album, I kinda stopped liking the **** they put out.

    I disagree, Korn most certainly deserves to be lumped with Limp Bizkit and others, after their first two albums it really shows

    The problem is youre referencing SPECIFIC rap songs to make your point. I bet you'll claim that their song with Nas also makes them a hip hop outfit. lol

    Because Korn has more rap elements associated with their music than other bands who fall under the nu-metal tag like Sevendust for example.

    I'd say that the musicians in Korn had the ability to make their music sound more like "beats". Their bassist Fieldy's technique was basically slapping....(i'll credit Flea for inventing that, or at least making it popular), so I think that sound was just such a huge part of it. they just made music you could nod your head to, much like hip hop.

    I never said they were a "hip-hop outfit" I said that they mix hip-hop elements into their music which they absolutely do. My point is that they are more of a hybrid than a "pure" metal band.

    danny carey said he recorded the drums by himself already. what a freak. Said Maynard was being lazy, but I think that was a joke. But said it should be ready around the end of the summer.

    ya know....I never really got into Tool. I mean its not like I didnt like them....they just had a pretty big catalogue, and I didnt really know much outside the popular ones.

    I love the song Aenema though! its awesome. I also liked Stinkfist, and Parabola.

    However, I prefered Maynard James Keenan in "The Hollow" by A Perfect Circle. One of my favorite songs of all time. I recommend checking it out if youre not familiar.
