JDevil, Bassnectar & More Leading “Metalstep” Movement
It would appear that Metalstep is now officially a thing. According to the aforementioned article, the burgeoning dubstep-offshoot is being led by metal influenced artists such as Korn‘s Jonathan “JDevil” Davis, Bassnectar and Mixhell (Cavalera Conspiracy/ex-Sepultura).
According to Bassnectar:
“It’s been about 10 years since I’ve noticed that my friends into electronic music very heavily have some kind of metal or rock side. “It seems like a really natural progression to me. Death metal is all about intensity, frequencies, volumes and tempos, using the approach that you play your instrument as intensely as possible.”
