Nu Metal

NU METAL (1994-present)

Nu Metal (also known as NĂ¼-Metal and Aggro-Metal) is a form of Alternative Metal that combines elements of Heavy Metal music with elements of other music genres such as Hip Hop, Alternative Rock, Funk and Grunge. Bands in Nu Metal have drawn elements and influences from a variety of musical styles, including multiple genres of Heavy Metal. This form of Metal rarely features guitar solos; it is heavily syncopated and based on guitar riffs. Many Nu Metal guitarists use seven-string guitars that are down-tuned to play a heavier sound. DJs are occasionally featured in Nu Metal to provide instrumentation such as sampling, turntable scratching and electronic backgrounds. Vocal styles in Nu Metal include singing, rapping, screaming and growling.
