Qual è stata la fine del nu metal per Adam Zadel
Pubblicato il 18/02/2024 da Lorenzo Becciani

In una recente intervista Tim King dei Soil ha dichiarato che per Adam Zadel la fine del nu metal è cominciata con la morte di Dave Williams dei Drowning Pool:

“It’s kind of crazy how different sort of genres kinda come in and come out. It’s like hair metal was a very dirty word for a longtime. But now people love it, you know with the Mötley Crüe “Dirt” record coming out; Steel Panther making kind of a mockumentary ‘Spinal Tap‘ out of it—all these bands doing that. Metalcore was huge for awhile. That’s what kinda took over where nü-metal left off and that kinda just went down into a slump and nobody really talks about it anymore. Now you have nü-metal coming back and probably after that wears out metalcore will be back. It kinda comes back in these full swings and stuff, it’s pretty exciting. Our SOiL guitarist Adam had told me after we left Dave Williams from Drowning Pool‘s funeral he goes, ‘I hate to say it, man, but I think nü-metal might have died with Dave Williams.’ And he was kind of on to something on that because it kind of started to take a downturn after that, and then just kind of went away. And metalcore and white belts and all that stuff kind of took over. But it’s cool to see it all back now, we’re pretty excited. We rode out the wave, we haven’t stopped.”
