Nu metalcore (also known as nu metal revival and new nu metal, and sometimes as nu deathcore)[1][2][3] is a fusion genre that combines musical elements of nu metal, metalcore and sometimes deathcore that began in the 2000s and gained popularity in the 2010s.[4][5] Some of the notable groups have also taken influence from R&B,[4] pop,[1] industrial metal,[6] deathcore,[3] post-hardcore,[7] and heavy hardcore.[8] The fusion is characterized by typical metalcore and deathcore vocals and instrumentation often accompanied by down-tuned guitars, heavy bass, rapping, spoken word, soulful singing, funk samples, or turntablism.[7][9]

History and reception[edit]

Demon Hunter's 2002 self-titled debut album was described as combining nu metal sounds and qualities with ones heard in hardcore punk with its release in 2002.[10] In the early 2010s, metalcore and deathcore groups[11] such as Emmure,[12][13][14] Of Mice & Men,[15][16][17] Suicide Silence,[5][18] and Issues,[19][20] all gained moderate popularity for drawing influence from nu metal. Suicide Silence's 2011 album The Black Crown, which features elements of nu metal and deathcore,[5] peaked at number 28 on the Billboard 200.[21][22] In 2014, Issues' self-titled debut album peaked at number 9 on the same chart.[23] The album features elements of metalcore, nu metal, pop and R&B.[24] Of Mice & Men's 2014 album Restoring Force, which features elements of nu metal,[16] peaked at number 4 on the Billboard 200.[25] Bring Me the Horizon, previously known for a much heavier style of music, released their fifth album That's the Spirit, which peaked at number 2 on the Billboard 200, in 2015.[26] The album draws from multiple genres, including nu metal; however, the band completely abandoned their metalcore style.[27][28] According to The Soundboard in 2016, "nu-metalcore has become [...] omnipresent."[29]
