According to a recent Noisey article, nu-metal is back and it is better than before. Noisey listed seven bands they believe are leading the charge, and bands like Islander, Beartooth and Hundredth made their the list, getting the recognition they deserve.
In 2014, nu-metal is ceasing to be a dirty word to a lot of people. If you told someone six years ago that you were into Limp Bizkit or Slipknot, you’d probably be laughed at, and they’d probably make a passive aggressive blog post about you. But now, bands are openly admitting their influences with no shame, and being totally honest with others about what they dig.
