    You people are only thinking in terms of the more "traditional" sounding bands. What about these:

    Today is the Day
    Khanate
    Warhorse
    Sunn 0)))
    Converge
    Mastodon
    Isis
    Neurosis

    All of these bands have recently released stuff that is pushing metal forward, and, in the process, rejuvinating the metal scene in new, innovative ways.

    Glad to see that a couple of people mentioned Agalloch..I was just exposed to this band not too long ago and I LOVE their sound. I still say that Europe has the better metal scene:Smug:

    Saving metal. . .saving metal from what? lol

    Anyway - I'd say Iced Earth and Cannibal Corpse are the only "underground metal bands that have mainstream success" if that makes sense. Cannibal Corpse WAS in the movie 'Ace Ventura' after all. The other bands listed are incredible, but will never have the type of mainstream success, less Type O, Slayer, and a few others.

    Immolation. I can't count the number of bands that I've seen with a member wearing an Immolation shirt in photos.

    Most of the nu-metal doesn't really appeal to me, except for a few select songs that are somewhat catchy. Like the new Taproot album, the song "poem" really got me, but the rest of the album is total nu-metal whiny drivel. I could never understand people's draw to Korn.. I like a couple songs out of god knows how many songs they've put out over the past few years. One of their album titles sums it all up: "Follow The Leader". Meaning most fans are sheep following the herd, saying how great korn is because they're another "heavy" band.

    On another note, does anyone else miss the early to mid 90's hard rock that would sometimes border on metal? It was like a MTV fad that died out like any other fad but a lot of great songs were put out. I guess the fact that I grew up to these songs has a lot to do with it too. Alice In Chains, Stone Temple Pilots, Collective Soul, Pearl Jam, etc. Listen to the STP song "Piece Of Pie". It was never a single (don't know why) but it was my favorite song off the album (Core).

    It's funny people mention a band like Agalloch, in a "saving metal" thread, whom has blatantly shown distaste for the current metal scene, and, well, metal in general.
