    Hi,

    I was wondering if you would consider the newer bands Devildriver and Chimaira metal ?


    The first devildriver album sounded more like nu-metal but the following albums have awesome guitar riffs. I really like this band. Althought it's not really mauling type of signing.

    Chimaira have a different sound at each album they put out. The first few albums i would say were new metal but now they droped nu-metal when it died and started incorporating guitar riff. They now state slayer as an influence to their music.

    Both bands are on roadrunner records. I hate that label because each time a band sell a little they get out a special edition of the cd with bonus materials. You want the bonus material since you are a fan. So i often end up buying the album 2 times.

    Chimaira are groove thrash so yes, they are metal. They were nu-metal on their first album, metalcore on their second and turned groove with their self-titled. Also, Chimaira haven't been signed to Roadrunner since the the release of the latter mentioned album. If you listen to the lyrics of Resurrection, it's all about how much the label held them back.

    I don't really listen to Devildriver but I would consider them nu-metal or metalcore from what I've heard.

    If Sunn O))) and Keldian are metal, Devildriver and Chimaira sure as hell are.

    I say they're metal. Considering I haven't heard much from either band.

    Both started off a little nu-metal\corish, gotten more groove-oriented over the years. Never been a fan of Chimaira at all, but the two latest DevilDriver albums have been some fun albums id concider more of a mix between groove\melodic\thrash metal. These days DevilDriver is a metal band, while Chimaira is more of a hardcore influenced metal band Id say.

    RR probably signs half the bands they do so can take advantage of them. Adult teenagers.

    Wow, it's so edgy and original to write lyrics about how you resent the record industry!

    Yes they are both metal

    They're metal. They're awful, and the people that like them are even worse, but they are metal.

    I used to like DevilDriver, but I found their last two albums to be incredibly dull.

    I would say that both bands would be considered metal. Chimaira seems more hardcore influenced while Devildriver is more thrash or melodic.
