Hey guys!! I'm working on a series covering Alternative Metal bands and I was wondering which are your favourites...


Let's check the definition of this style...

"Alternative metal (or alt-metal[1]) is a style of alternative rock and heavy metal that gained popularity in the early 1990s.[1]
Alternative metal usually combines heavy metal with alternative rock, and in some cases other genres, such as hardcore punk and progressive rock.[2] Alternative metal bands are often characterized by heavy guitar riffs, melodic vocals, unconventional sounds within other heavy metal genres, unconventional song structures and sometimes experimental approaches to heavy music.[2]" from Wiki.

Which are your favourite ones?

great, looking forward to that lesson series!
As for bands, if we go back to the 90s Idsay Papa Roach and Linkin Park. Both have become more straight rock lately.
I've always liked Evanescence.
How about Black Stone Cherry? Though you already did a lesson in their style.
Black Label Society would be another great band on this list.
I still find it hard to really draw the line between alt. rock and alt metal biggrin.gif

Yeah Slav, generally I'd agree that BLS is stoner, but as I said, I find it hard to draw a clear line between alt. rock and alt. metal.

Just thought of some more 90's bands: Limp Bizkit, Rage Against The Machine and Korn were also great back in the days!

Linkin Park would be cool. Something like how to write guitar parts that complement electronic music would be neat...
