42karnivool

The closest alternative to tool,even better than a perfect circle
41Guano Apes

Nu metal with punk and reggae elements, Sandra Nasic is one of the best frontwomen in recent years

avant garde alternative at it's finest, you can find funk, dance, pop, and even thrash metal

Judgement


one of the most depressing and hopeless albums ever, alternative with goth elements

A Nu and metalcore fusion with a bit of hardcore, another underrated unknown gem, not even a filler

Statement


energetic nu metal with Pantera like riffs, worth listening
30Maximum the Hormone
Bu-ikikaesu


one of the weirdest band in the list, MtH combines various genres to heavier sound and with original fucked up vocals

Celldweller


Klayton's one man band shines to combine heavy guitar riffs to electronic music
28Alter Bridge
Blackbird


Miles Kennedy is one of the best modern vocalist ever
27Dry Kill Logic
The Darker Side Of Nonsense


While most of the lyrics are pretty childish, this album is pure entertainment, every single song is pure energy and rage with even some ballads. (is it me or "rot" sounds like apissed off version of Wannabe?
26primus
Frizzle Fry


Les Claypool is arguably one of the best bassists ever,though his music is not accessible to everyone. A strange, experimental,funky, creepy and sometimes funny album.
25in flames
Soundtrack to Your Escape


In flames experimented adding alternative elements and an overall darkest and claustrophobic atmosphere to their gothemburg sound.
24Static-X
Wisconsin Death Trip


R.I.P. Wayne. his industrial sound and voice were unique
23Disturbed
believe


overlooked even by disturbed fans, their second release is softer and less "nu"compared to the debut but contains better songwriting, introspection and variety
22soilwork
Figure Number Five


Another gothemburg band changing their sound for one album. Strid's vocals are awesome like always and every track is worth listening, distortion sleep is among their best works and departure plan is a great emotional ballad
21Mr. Bungle
Mr. Bungle


the next 2 albums are so weird that they can't even belong to a genre, their debute is a morbid,trippy strange and fucked up funk alternative experiment.
Interviewer:what genre is this?
Mike Patton: yes.
20Volbeat
Beyond Hell/Above Heaven


Poulsen's voice recalls a mixture of Elvis and Johhny Cash combines with various genres such as rockabilly, punk, metal,country, hard rock and blues
19Pain of Salvation
Scarsick


PoS decided to mix their inimitable progressive sound to nu metal, the result is one of the weirdest things ever. when you write a prog dance nu experimental song you re undeniably a genius.
18Ill Nino
Revolution/Revolucion


dirty sound, heavy riffs and harsh vocals perfectly combines to soft spanish style music
17Dir En Grey
Uroboros


best metal album from japan, dark experimental sound and crazy vocals and talented musicians
16Nothingface
Violence


R.I.P. Matt Bennett
one of the angriest albums in nu metal, political and satyrical lyrics filled with hate and anger.
15Therapy?
Troublegum


Alternative metal with a punk industrial sound, love also the sarcastic but still filled with hatred lyrics.
14Rage Against The Machine
Rage Against The Machine


the pioneers of Rap and funk metal, one of the most influential (musically and politically) bands in the genre
13System of a Down
Toxicity


the most original sounding band beloved by mainstream audience. Toxicity contains some of the best songs by soad and combines perfectly heavy parts and softer ones with armenian music style
12Soundgarden
Badmotorfinger


R.I.P. Chris Cornell
yes, i prefer this one to superunknown, it's heavier, more unique and every song is great, chris had an unique vocal range
11Incubus (USA-CA)
S.C.I.E.N.C.E.


really unique for it,s time, nu metal and funk combined to a progressive sound, really fun to listen, every track is gold
10tool
├ćnima


While Lateralus is one of my favorite albums ever it,s entirely a prog album, aenima is still alternative, though through the years tool managed to create their own genre
9Fair to Midland
Fables From a Mayfly: What I Tell You Three Times is True


Describing this album is hard, it's like a journey through symbolic fables and fantastic atmosphere. Darroh is one of the most talented frontmen ever.
8Alice in Chains
dirt


morbid, dark and depressing, this album will tear you apart
7Faith No More
Angel Dust


Mike Patton experiments again with one one of the most iconic and unique albums ever
6Fear Factory
Obsolete


demanufacture is one of the best albums ever but with obsolete FF started combining their industrial death metal sound to nu and altrernative metal, while most of the album is really heavy there are some emotionally depressing tracks
5Deftones
White Pony


often considered one of the best nu metal albums ever, WP contains some of the most atmospheric and original material in the genre, the hallucinating and dark atmosphere gives the goosebumps
4korn
korn


the debut by the pioneers of the nu metal, disturbing, angry, dirty, vulgar and influenced musical panorama for a decade
3slipknot
Vol. 3: The Subliminal Verses


some will disagree with this choice but i find it to be their most mature album both musically and lyrically, plus they managed to explore various genres and evolved, imo one of the best modern metal releases ever
2dog fashion disco
Adultery


the most experimental album in the list, dfd fused alternative metal to literally ANY genre, all filled with a dark and schizoid atmosphere, darkest days is one of my favorite songs ever
1mudvayne
L.D. 50


My favorite nu metal albums ever, emotionally struggling, heavy, proggy, the atmospheres are psychedelic, depressingand dark, the lyrics depicts devastated minds, drug abuse, anger, madness and the music contains some of the best basslines ever and heavy riffs combined to prog elements
