    I also agree that Godflesh sounds a bit like nu metal, occasionally. Hymns album sounds like Korn at times.

    What I meant with my statement: "I think the term "industrial metal" is in some cases just used to describe nu-metal with electronic sounds involved." was that people misuse the term that way. Not that I think it really is that. I was a bit unclear in my statement, apologies.

    I have to jump in to comment that TRANCE IS THE MOTION by Static-X is not very industrial metal in my opinion. >>> Maybe so. I think there are a lot of similarities with Nu Metal and Godflesh though, the main one being Godflesh focus on textures rather than riffs. Also the low end bass, and the dissonance has striking similarities. In terms of Static-X, I do think a lot of their work resembles Godflesh rhythms - the main rhythm in "Like Rats" is a good example. Static-X rhythms are just cleaner, more processed than Godflesh's, and Static-X also differ slightly in that they use electronics as interludes, to build to the rhythm. Where one draws the line as to what is Metal, and what is not, is unclear though.

    "I think the term "industrial metal" is in some cases just used to describe nu-metal with electronic sounds involved." >>> I always thought Industrial Nu Metal was more Funk driven than Industrial Metal. "See You On The Other Side" is a perfect example. Plus Nu Metal drumming often uses syncopated snare work, and interlocking snare & bass patterns which gives a Funk feel to the rhythm. Compare them with Fear Factory and the latter has much faster, thicker rhythm section. I think FF's trademark machine-gun double bass was key to them classified as a Metal band. Ministry also use a lot of double bass. Maybe the vocals played a part in the classification as a Metal band too. FF's had slightly higher pitched vocals than bands such as Static-X, who tended to 'spit them out'. FF also mixed harsh and cleans as Godflesh did later on.

    "There was one Korn song (think it's off the first album) which had some death metal vocals,">>> Not sure what song you mean but "Ball Tongue" has a similar riff to Morbid Angel's "Angel of Disease" and they covered "God of Emptiness" during the Issues era.

    The reason Nu Metal is the most misunderstood genre of all times, is because of it's name. If it was called something like "NU-SMASH", nobody would bitch about the "lack of metal" in this genre or how "Limp Bizkit ruined metal" or whatever stupid things people have to say about a genre they don't understand.

    I have to jump in to comment that TRANCE IS THE MOTION by Static-X is not very industrial metal in my opinion. There's almost rap-like vocals in the verses, and the rhytm guitars do some very typical nu-metal stuff. I think the term "industrial metal" is in some cases just used to describe nu-metal with electronic sounds involved.
