Metal bands selling out

Bands that, for one reason or another, made a complete 180 turn in their sound to make music that would be more appealing to a broad, generic, mainstream audience instead of progressing their sound. For the record, the albums here aren't necessarily the result of the band "selling out" but nonetheless are albums that very much seem as such.
1Linkin Park
One More Light


blah. this album made it very apparent LP doesn't really care about metal or a heavier sound anymore. one of the most drastic turns in sound I've ever witnessed. who okayed this?
RIP Chester.
2Nine Lashes
Ascend


"LETS MAKE CHRISTIAN WORSHIP TO PROVE WE LOVE JESUS YEAAAAAAAAAHHHHHā€
3Thousand Foot Krutch
Oxygen: Inhale


I don't think this is too terrible but...yeah this is pretty blah. same as above ^
4Korn
The Path of Totality
5Red (USA)
Release the Panic


Not a total departure, but lacking several key elements that made them distinct. Not to mention much poppier in sound.
6Linkin Park
Minutes to Midnight


Again, their sound is KINDA there, but this album screams "oh crap we gotta be mature now". Honestly, I like this album, but I can't look at this and truly say it was true experimentation or progression, rather a safe album.
7Disturbed
Evolution


This is extremely painful.
8Adema
Planets


I don't mind this album but its pretty symptomatic of mid 2000's "oh crap nu metal's angsty gotta be mature now"-itis. Albums like this dropped all the downtuned guitars and fun for super MATOORE stuff like forgettable riffs, generic/ambiguous lyrics, and boring musical composition. Neat, very mature of you. Your peers are too busy sleeping to make fun of you now, congratulations.

...for the record this is still better than unstable.
9Mudvayne
The New Game
10Metallica
St. Anger


HEY GUYS THIS NU METAL THING IS POPULAR LETS MAKE SOME OF THAT

11Taproot
