    For me, nothingface, acid bath, and engine do the most with that 90's style of grunge emotionality. What defines the genre are the vocals and level of eclecticism. I would also say slipknot but i think at least 90% of their music is trash, corey tayler's stoner-sour is horrible.

    Here are some albums i've been listening to recently:











    There's also some good progressive metal bands, but its often not brutal or metal enough for my tastes.

    absolutely, SOAD is pretty amazing, and i like ramstein as well even though that's generally not the kind thing i go for when im looking for metal. You might like Igorrr:



    I guess this genre has come a long way...here are 2 songs by mushroom head that are worth listening to, along with full videos:

    You know what? I'm listening to mushroomhead's album "XX", and overall it's just really good. Fans typically like their older stuff the best, but this is just so well produced and good. I hated it the first time, but i guess i just wasn't hearing the album. And as far as linkin park is concerned, a lot of their stuff is good but the lyrics are just way too whiny and repetitive. It's all about this one person that chester bennington hated...himself!

    I'm not sure if it is because I haven't listened to this type of music in a long time or what, but I enjoy Chevelle's new album.

    Most of the stuff mentioned is what I listened to in middle school 20 years ago. Not a lot has held up particularly well. However, SOADs first is still fantastic. I'm also interested in this Mudvayne reunion.
