Let the Bodies Hit the Floor is one of the biggest examples of why I loathe nu-metal with an almost immeasurable rage - so fucking juvenile and stupid. Haven't heard anything else, doubt it's much better.
old dp was good though. the sinner album had some heavy tracks w/ it. maybe some of their songs do get over-used but then again there have got to be enough people that listen to them if they get that kind of attention.
Haha. Add trapt and you have a recipe for every sporting events. I mix "FOH" for a couple of college sports and I get inundated with that stuff. It's this particular breed of lowest common denominator aggression-- but it's still vanilla enough to be acceptable by the general public."Bodies" is one of the most obnoxious songs I have ever heard, and that "Click, Click, Boom!" song from Saliva is equally, if not MORE obnoxious. Both of those songs have been used incessantly for years and years on the previews for the lamest of lame action movies, and it really gets on my nerves.
Agreed - the stuff that really gets my adrenaline pumping is the tight, technical, controlled power and brutality of like Decapitated (when they're grooving and not being annoyingly spastic) and of course BEHEMOTH. Nu-metal and hardcore, by comparison, are so boring and uncontrolled and base, like, well, an angry teenager having a tantrum, as opposed to the inhuman rage and power of metal, like a mighty warrior dominating on the fields of battle with controlled, powerful swings of his sword. I love metal
