I read this in the interviews section, and it kind of made me laugh, michael romeo isn't even slightly interested in nu-metal MU: (...) What is your least favorite style of metal out right now? MR: My least favorite style. I don't know. What styles are there? MU: You have all the subgenres. I didn't know if you had any in particular that you didn't care for too much. MR: I don't know. I don't really know too much new stuff. I don't like that nu metal stuff too much. They tune down and have some kinda, not even a riff. They tune down as low as they can go and start chugging away on some kind of thing. No vocals, they kinda rap. I don't know. I don't even listen to that stuff. But anything else. . . I still love Priest and Sabbath and all that stuff. It's pretty much the old school stuff for me.
