I'm sure next year they'll release an album that's deathcore featuring Emmure.

Get up was actually quite... refreshing. It had some weakness but was not that bad for a "1st try" in that direction. If the manage to make it a bit better, it will be an interesting album.
But I always liked catchy metal with some electro mixed in it, so I'm probably biased.

"It's like every awful aspect of music from the past decade and a half are reaching their inevitable conclusions. Hope the breakdowns are siiiiiiiiick"

It's nice to know that people actually take the time to research even a little the genres that they bash so adamantly. Of course when the regular listener listens to nu-metal, they dont hear breakdowns (because its a completely different kind of music that has them?) but when you do, oh yes you hear those pesky breakdowns that all the kids are talking about, that your landlord told you is ruining music while you listen to Fantasia and Kenny Chesny. So you go online, see a news story with the word metal in it and think, "Hey, i remember someone saying metal has breakdowns that are bad while i was masterbating to the american flag, i'll tell them what's what!" Now i hate nu-metal, but there's plenty of things to say about it that are factual (Fresh ideas ran out 2 months after it was started, shitty raping over shittier metal, etc.) By posting your ignorant ass statement, all you did was give the people that do like it another thing to use against us. "These fucking people think nu-metal has breakdowns, so they obviously dont know shit about it so what we think about it is right so were gonna make 20 more nu-metal albums." See what you've done. You single handedly created 20 more shitty singles i have to hear on the radio. In conclusion, think before you post ass-wipe

When referring to dubstep, I actually meant whompstep. The dubstep artists that I've heard, not being very many, are poop. So, I'm just going to continue bashing on a genre I know nothing about.

I used to think dubstep was awful as well. It's just one of those genres that's poorly represented by its popular artists. I really enjoyed Burial and James Blake a lot, so there definitely is some good dubstep out there and I look forward to continuing to look into it.

As for this album, it will most likely suck horribly. I probably won't even listen to it tbh.

Skindred laid the foundations for Dub Metal with Union Black, notably with the track Cut Dem, but Korn are taking it into its purest form by collabing with known dubstep musicians. I'm not keen on Dub Metal but will keep an eye on it, have a feeling it's gonna be the next mainstream friendly metal.

I think the dubstep that has come over to the US, and certain producers-- who I can't even be bothered naming-- have definitely hit upon a sort of frat-boy market where there's this macho-ism being reflected in the sounds and the way the music makes you feel. And to me, that is a million miles away from where dubstep started. It's a million miles away from the ethos of it. It's been influenced so much by electro and rave, into who can make the dirtiest, filthiest bass sound, almost like a pissing competition, and that's not really necessary.

He's true about the how-it-started bit, but the ethos of dubstep is open to interpretation, I think.

I mean, I also agree with him as I'm not the biggest fan of brostep (cough), but coming from Blake, it could come off as he's being kind of bitter about the fact his kind of dubstep isn't as popular as the womp womp kind of stuff...
