Nu metalcore (sometimes referred to as nu metal revival or new nu metal)[1] is the fusion of nu metal and metalcore popularized in the 2010s.[2] Some of the notable groups have also taken influence from R&B,[2] pop,[1] post-hardcore,[3] and deathcore.[4] The fusion is characterized by typical metalcore vocals and instrumentation often accompanied by down-tuned guitars, heavy bass, rapping, spoken word, soulful singing, funk samples, or turntablism.[3][5]

History and reception[edit]

Metalcore and deathcore groups[4] such as Emmure,[6][7][8] Of Mice & Men,[9][10][11] Suicide Silence,[12][13] and Issues,[14][15] all gained moderate popularity in the 2010s for drawing influence from nu metal. Suicide Silence's 2011 album The Black Crown, which features elements of nu metal and deathcore,[12] peaked at number 28 on the Billboard 200.[16][17] In 2014, Issues' self-titled debut album peaked at number 9 on the same chart,[18] the album features elements of metalcore, nu metal, pop and R&B.[19] Of Mice & Men's 2014 album Restoring Force, which features elements of nu metal,[10] peaked at number 4 on the Billboard 200.[20] 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.[21] The album draws from multiple genres, including nu metal; however, the band completely abandoned their metalcore style.[22][23] According to The Soundboard in 2016, "nu-metalcore has become [...] omnipresent."[24]
