I've often hated the term- nu-metal. For some people it calls to mind posers, scorn, and lots and lots of dreadlocks. But it also calls to mind something more: my childhood and my discovery into heavy metal. You see, before I ever knew about Slayer or Manowar or even Deathspell Omega, I was pretty much a nu-metal kid. I didn't care. I was rocking out and learning what this heavy metal thing is all about: loud guitars, angry vocals, and lots of vulnerable emotion. I first saw the "Got The Life" video on MTV and from then on I was hooked. Korn represented cool to me. Limp Bizkit was my favorite band for years, until they made disappointing albums. I saw Slipknot's "Wait and Bleed" video and I was in awe. These guys were fucking crazy. I bought their first album. I saw Staind, Linkin Park, Static X, Ill Nino, Flaw, 40 Below Summer, and Adema live in concert with buddies and girls that I liked at the time. While listening to "Payback" on my cd player in class, I was harassed verbally by an upperclassmen in high school. That song helped me get through a very embarrassing and hurtful time. I saw Dave from Drowning Pool sing for one of his last times, days before he passed away. I was sad to hear that. This mix brings back lots of memories of my past- both musically and personally. I didn't include everyone- both for space reasons and because some bands I just wasn't into. That's why No One, Ultraspank, Apartment 26, Spineshank, Twisted Method (I saw them live), Puya etc. aren't on. That doesn't mean I forgot. I moved on, but I still listen to these bands from time to time and I still see some of them in concert. This mix represents a time in my life, of discovery and naivety, and rocking my pain away.
