It turns out that the death of nu-metal was a tough event to survive. Of the dozens of successful bands who peddled the genre in the late 90s and early 00s, very few managed to escape that particular ship before it sunk beneath a growing wave of new alternative scenes. Some bands evolved from their nu-metal roots to explore other styles, such as Papa Roach and Linkin Park. Others fully embraced these roots defiantly, staying true to the genre that made them, such as Limp Bizkit. P.O.D., however, are part of a third camp, which contains the bands that continue to slug on, despite a drought of original ideas, trite songwriting and a generally tired, generic sound.
