Nu Metal stood amongst the forefront of popular music at the turn of the century. Love them or hate them, bands like Korn, Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, Slipknot and a multitude of others absolutely dominated the charts at a point. Many of these groups are meeting waves of success to this day but maybe in lesser degrees as the style subsided over the years.
However, in recent history, people have been referring to something that has been coined the “nu metal revival”. A number of bands are starting to come from the woodwork of the underground boasting this nostalgic sound and some established acts are beginning to turn towards it. Furthermore, there’s been relative success on these fronts! It should be interesting to see what it spawns into again moving forward.
This recent phenomena isn’t restricted to any one territory either. It’s happening across the globe…
… That brings us to Germany. A band by the name of NMAC made their “First Strike” last year with an EP entitled exactly that! They’ve been hard at work ever since cooking up the right hook which brings us here today.
This year, NMAC launched yet another EP by the name of “Split Second”! If you take a moment of your time to listen, you might just like it! Dig in further, and you may also find pockets of that golden nostalgia skirting the year 2000. Below, you can scope out the track “Battle Ready” in streaming form along with their music video for the opening track “Inside/Outside”.
“Split Second” consists of 7 tracks running at 20+ minutes of content. All of this music is currently available for a “name your price” download as well as physical purchase over on their Bandcamp page! Give them a listen and see what you think.
