Author Karpe comments:
“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.”
