Chris Garza of Suicide Silence sat down to chat with the Talk Toomey podcast and talked about bis forever love of Nü-metal. He said:
“Now it’s cool to wear a Coal Chamber shirt, and a Korn shirt and a Slipknot shirt, it’s cool. Those bands have earned it, where they’re legendary bands with classics, or kind of classic t-shirts I guess, it’s kinda weird.
“But I mean, when we first started in 2002, we were very vocal about Nü-metal. I wore the Korn shirts and long hair at a hardcore show—which if you didn’t know, was a big fucking no-no. I’d be around the pit and people would throw kicks at me. So I was a Nü-metal kid at a hardcore show. But we didn’t care, we talked about how much we loved Korn, we were very vocal about it on camera, to our friends, and people around the scene when it wasn’t cool to do so.
“Which has led to a friendship with Korn and it’s really cool… But I’m kinda bitter like band’s sounding Nü-metal or like wearing the shirts, I’m like ‘Where were you twenty years ago?’ But it’s fucking crazy, it’s a classic genre. It’s badass. And it’s still getting bigger.”
Garza also talked about the future of Suicide Silence and about releasing a new single on Halloween night.
