Fear Factory: Nu-Metal Or Not?

Posted by on June 25, 2009

All this Fear Factory brou-haha got me dusting off my old copies of Demanufacture and Obsolete, and apparently I was not alone as MetalSucks’ Vince Neilstein started pulling up old videos and debating whether or not the band was/is nu-metal.

I always thought they were unfairly lumped in with the rest of those late 90’s bands, but the video he found sure does make a good case. I also thought they never got enough credit (if you think someone should get credit for this) for starting the whole screamy verse/catchy chorus thing that would eventually define metalcore. What do you think?
