When Ithinkofnu-metal,I thinkofLinkin Park, Limp Bizkit,Slipknotandeven Chevelle-thosetypes of bands. Thesongsarealotmorestructured and they're a lot deeper and the tuningsareeven lower.I kind of wantedto touch on that and haveoursongs tohavemore ofarock and roll feel. Just in yourface,angsty, here-it-is rock and roll.And that's what I thinkofwhen I think of nu-metal:structured,heavymusicthat hasapoint.It's angry just like all the othermusic,but thebiggerparts are bigger and the powerful parts aremorepowerfulandtheslow partsslower."
