Nu Metal:Resurgence Matt Karpe Book review

Matt Karpe

Book review by Allyson Kingsley Music Journalist with Boston Rock Radio

 

Now you all might be asking yourselves , “Why the hell is Ally Kat doing a damn book review on a radio station?”  Because my metal minions, it's coming upon the gates of winter and the oh so beloved holiday season.  Many of you do not like to venture out in the cold weather and let's face it, you get a bit stir crazy in the winter months.  Or perhaps you are tired of buying your metalhead buddies socks, underwear and a bottle of rum for Xmas.  Well, leave the rum, but I digress.  So I introduce to you this book….Nu Metal: Resurgence by Matt Karpe.

 

British music journalist and writer Matt Karpe is currently affiliated with Powerplay Rock & Metal magazine.  His first book We Own the Night (2016) focused on the hard rock scene.

 

Ride through the memories of the 90s and 00s when nu metal crashed crazily on the metal scene.  Love it or hate it, nu metal has left an impressive imprint.  With the arrival of more nu metal bands yearly, or bands heavily influenced by the genre, there is no doubt that this piece of metal history will become lore. This book takes you through multiple groups that paved the landscape of nu metal. Some will be a revisit like that of an old friend.  Other bands may be new to you relished in obscurity.  Matt Karpe invites his readers to explore the nuances of each band and he suggests “best of songs” to whet your palates. Also included are various interview snippets because after all the bands are about people, what we each bring to humanity.  Picture it as a history book, if you will. It is a genre that is a stepping stone to who knows what else in the future of metal.  In the tree of metal there are many branches and many more roots.  Karpe indulges just one aspect of a very large and very tight community of which most will agree are family.  So treat this gem of a book as you would a family tome.  Rest it upon your bookshelf alongside your books on glam metal or death metal.
