Nu metal, otherwise known as new metal, nü metal or aggro rock, is a musical genre that emerged in the late 1990s which fuses influences from grunge, and Alternative metal with funk music, hip hop, and various heavy metal genres, such as Thrash metal and groove metal. Nu metal music emphasizes mood, rhythm, and texture over melody and complex instrumentation. Often, nu metal songs use rhythmic, syncopated riffs played on distorted electric guitars with strings detuned to lower pitches to create a darker and more thick music than regular mainstream music.

Folk metal is a diverse collection of music, encompassing a wide variety of different styles and approaches. As the name suggests, the one common ground between folk metal bands is a shared interest in fusing heavy metal music with elements of folk music.

Funk metal is a fusion genre of music which emerged in the 1980s. It typically incorporates elements of funk and heavy metal. It features hard-driving heavy metal guitar riffs, the pounding bass rhythms characteristic of funk, and sometimes hip hop-style rhymes into an alternative rock approach to songwriting.

Grindcore, often shortened to grind, is an evolution of crust punk, most commonly associated with death metal, a very different though similarly extreme style of music.

Grindcore is characterized by: heavily distorted, down-tuned guitars, with crust punk-influenced riffing; hardcore punk and thrash metal drumming, with many bands focusing on blast beats; songs rarely lasting more than two minutes and often seconds long; vocals which consist of growls and higher-pitched vocals, similar to those found in black metal or hardcore punk. Lyrical concepts range from social and political issues to gore and humor.

Black/doom is a combination of elements from black metal and doom metal. As in funeral doom, the lyrical themes often deal with nature, melancholy, sadness or depression. The music is characterized by the use of high-pitched screams, distorted doom or black metal guitar riffs and clean guitar riffs. The most typical bands associated with this genre are Dolorian and (contestably) early Katatonia. Pure Black/doom bands are fairly rare, but bands such as Forgotten Tomb, Ghast, Nortt and Bethlehem, are also considered Black/Doom due to common lyrical and atmospheric elements, in spite of their prevalent black metal side.

(with their album Omnio), Aarni, Neurosis, Cult Of Luna, Jesu.

Drone doom is a genre which is even more repetitive and inaccessible than funeral doom, but not entirely minimalistic. Generally influenced by noise and ambient music, the music often mainly consists of distorted downtuned guitars and bass, usually with lots of reverb applied to the final mix, with clear themes being a rarity. If vocals are present they are often "sung" in a screaming manner. Drone doom tracks are generally long, with typical lasting between ten and thirty minutes; some drone doom releases even consist of only one album-long track, an example of this being Sun Baked Snow Cave, a collaboration between Boris and Merzbow which clocks in at 62 minutes. Vocals and even drums are often absent, and the music often lacks any beat or rhythm in the traditional sense. Like funeral doom, drone doom typically emphasizes despair and emptiness, abstract and apocalyptic and cryptic themes are also common.

 

Bands found in this genre;

Earth

Khanate

Black boned angel

Burning witch

Funeral doom is a style that takes the slowness of doom metal to further extremes, and that puts a strong emphasis on an atmosphere of despair and emptiness. The style can be seen as a departure from death/doom, slowing down the music even further, and frequently incorporating influences from ambient music, creating a sound which is distorted and gloomy, but often dreamy at the same time. Vocals are usually growled, but are often much less in the foreground than in other styles of music, and are rather used to provide an additional texture to the music. The style was originally pioneered by Thergothon.

 

Bands include;

Skepticism

Thergothon

Mournful congregation

Funeral

Sleaze rock (or Sleaze glam) is a kind of rock music emerged in the mid 1980s, and took off fully in 1987. Bands in the genre primarily take influences from punk, blues, hard rock and glam metal. The genre is sometimes called street rock or sleaze metal, and continues on today, especially in Scandinavia, though it still has some popularity in other parts of Europe and the United States.
