Nu Metal is dead

So says the New York Daily News in Metal Bands Rocked by Slump. It’s all part of the natural evolution of rock and roll. Nothing ever really dies in rock and roll, it just fades to the background, to be kept alive by a bunch of die hard fans waiting patiently for the day when music “fans” of the day will get bored with the current flavour of the week and be ready to try out something with a bit more of an edge. Then the media picks up on it and wham, you’ve got New Nu Metal! It’ll be back. Don’t panic. Rock and roll never dies, it just hides out back once in awhile.
