TOTW: Alien Ant Farm_ Attitude

Nu Metal was at its peak when I was a teenager. It was impossible to be in school in the 90s and not hear the acts Limp Bizkit, Pappa Roach and to a lesser extent Alien Ant Fram. Although the genre has a lot of negative connotations now. I have always appreciated the mix of influences found in Nu Metal when it was done well.

Alien Ant Frams second album Anthology has a lot of these moments. Moving between many genre whilst demonstrating influences from metal on most tracks and Attitude is my favourite on the album. It’s the furthest from Metal but the intricate guitar playing and sound design especially of the drums are iconic to both Nu Metal and the time period.
