Never heard the phrase Mallcore, but nu metal is ussually the garbage stuff  like slipknot, system of a down, any kind of band like that (think most metal wanna be bands who dont really know how to play their instruments).

Ussually thats the type of metal most true metal fans dont like to be associated with. Although some of the stuff is okay, and theirs the odd good song or band most of it is uter and useless garbage.


Quote

As nu here is the common pop-music respelling of new, the term pretty much explains itself—it’s a revitalised form of the heavy metal musical genre of the seventies and eighties, a style of loud, vigorous and often harsh-sounding rock music that was linked to an intense and spectacular performing style. Metal drifted out of fashion in the nineties, though it never went away completely.
The nu-metal format is most closely associated with bands like Korn, Limp Bizkit, Slipknot, the Deftones, Amen and Papa Roach, and the genre is often linked to the American music producer Ross Robinson, often called “the guru of nu-metal”. The performing style is still as heavily amplified and intense as ever; nu-metal gigs were described recently by Nicholas Barber in the Independent on Sunday as being “costumed, pyrotechnic riots of blood, sweat and earth-shaking volume”, though he also complained that the lyrics were self-pitying and peevish.


This more or less portrays nu-metal accurately(although black sabbath is really a bad choice of influence, since black sabbath are so much better )

What I think about nu metal: Premade, fake bands, corporate logos, lots of money in the backside, premade-hits (y'know, those hits that are hits before being released). It is like heavy, thrash, or whatever-metal but converted to pop to amuse a bigger (and more ignorant) audience.

Example: Evanescence, or whatever it is spelled. Listen to it: Double backed vocals over heavy guitars that are so compressed that they barely sound. The girl's voice (well, the three voices mixed all-together) makes me feel sick. And they even dared to cover that Smashing Pumpkins' masterpiece called Zero... They shredded it, they must die. Btw, the two main men have left the band. Evanescence will last two daily news.

Wow, talk about reviving a great topic Cheesy

I guess since I missed this originally, I should respond to it now...

My personal favorite metal bands are:

Emperor
Dissection
Dimmu Borgir (when they were good)
Cradle Of Filth
Ancient
Lord Belial
Killing Addiction
Kreator
Iron Maiden
Disown
Old Man's Child
Sacramentum
Nile (I met them personally when I was a college radio DJ)

Other metal I listen to:
Tool (old Tool, first two albums, not newer Prong-wanabe garbage)
Pro-Pain
Metallica (pre-Bob Rock sellout days)
Rob Zombie (yeah yeah, some people think he's a hack, I like his songs so eat me Tongue )
Dio
Therion
Iced Earth
and probably half a million more...

and of course...I will always love Ozzy/RJD-led Black Sabbath. Cheesy

EDIT: Oh...it's hard to call them metal per se, but Finland's Stratovarius just owns. Cheesy

I thought a couple of Evanescene's songs were pretty good. I got involved with music since like 2000 or something, so I wouldn't know if any band is copying any other band. Well, some are just obvious crap and are one hit wonders for some reason. Although I do remember alot of the old stuff that my older brother listened to.

Linkin Park would probably be considered Nu Metal. Ozzy's hard rock at best...imo, he's boring without Black Sabbath behind him. Cheesy

Ahem coughcoughcough.... They've been around for over 5 years, they make their own art and songs. Just cos they can draw better than you doesn't mean you have to hate them Tongue

And definately not like the Backstreet Boys. The BSBs are trying their hardest to look gay Wink

1.- They don't draw better than me :lol:

2.-ALL THEIR SONGS SOUND LIKE THE SAME THING! -> 1st mellow part, then rap part, then shouting, then mellow, then rap, then shouting, then shouting + rap.

Tongue

It's just me.

... you should try listening to My December, From the Inside et al. They make some different types of songs as well Wink

Besides, don't all songs just sound the same these days? For example, rock = verse + chorus + verse + chorus + bridge + chorus.
