Nu metal, the genre that dominated the late 90s and early 2000s, has experienced a resurgence in recent years. Fans old and new have discovered the raw energy and aggressive sound of bands like Korn, Slipknot, and Limp Bizkit, leading to a renewed interest in the genre. And now, there's a new website on the horizon that aims to cater to this growing community.
The Nu Metal Agenda is the brainchild of @HolidayKirk, the owner of the popular Twitter account @numetal_moment. With a massive following of over 100,000 fans, @numetal_moment has become a hub for nu metal enthusiasts, sharing news, memes, and nostalgia-inducing moments from the genre's heyday.
Now, in partnership with Lambgoat's LG Media, @HolidayKirk is taking the next step in building a community for nu metal fans with The Nu Metal Agenda. The website will be a central hub for all things nu metal, featuring news, interviews, reviews, and more. Fans will be able to connect with each other and discuss their favorite bands and albums, as well as discover new music and upcoming artists.
The Nu Metal Agenda will also have a strong focus on diversity and inclusivity, highlighting bands from underrepresented communities within the genre. Nu metal has always been a genre that embraced outsiders and gave a voice to those who felt marginalized, and The Nu Metal Agenda aims to continue that tradition.
In an interview with Lambgoat, @HolidayKirk spoke about his vision for the website: "I want The Nu Metal Agenda to be a place where nu metal fans can come together and celebrate the genre that we all love. Whether you've been a fan since the beginning or just discovered nu metal, there will be something for everyone on the site. And I want to make sure that we're highlighting voices that haven't always been heard in the genre, whether it's women, people of color, or LGBTQ+ artists."
The Nu Metal Agenda is still in the early stages of development, but fans can expect to see the site launch in the coming months. In the meantime, fans can follow @numetal_agenda on Twitter for updates and news about the project.
For fans of nu metal, The Nu Metal Agenda promises to be an exciting new addition to the community. With its focus on inclusivity and diversity, the site has the potential to not only unite fans of the genre but also to bring new fans into the fold. As nu metal continues to evolve and grow, The Nu Metal Agenda will be there to document it all.
