yawn - This watered down era of "metal" is a bit of a shame. Sleep formed around this time, providing a great grasp on what metal should sound like. Commit or don't try at all, simp. The 90's gave us great new music - hip hop, house, techno, Brit pop, grunge/metal/punk in Nirvana... This is just lame, empty version of metal - maybe accessible however not good, per se.
