Nu metal history and its impact will be explored in an upcoming book set for release this fall.
Nu Metal: A Definitive Guide is currently slated for release in the United States on September 24 and is by Matt Karpe. In a statement on the book, Karpe said, “I grew up during the nu metal movement and it was those kinds of bands who got me into heavy music. It is still an extremely popular era of heavy music today, and with no other books released on nu metal since 2002, now seemed the right time to go back and document that era in its entirety, while also taking a look at the new wave of nu metal which has provided a kind of resurgence over the last few years.”
Per the book’s description, “This book features an A-Z run down of the movement’s most influential artists, from the main players such as Korn, Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, Slipknot, and System Of A Down, to the lesser-known acts who may have only released one or two albums yet still made a lasting impact. It also looks at the new breed of bands coming through today who still share nu metal’s original aesthetics.”
Nu Metal: A Definitive Guide is currently available for pre-order at Amazon.
