https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qzUiijhNpyA A Mexican band doing what I can only describe as Backstreet Boys trying to do Nine Inch Nails by way of epic, uplifting metalcore. It’s amazing, unironically enjoyable. Really worth a listen, even if that sounds offputting.

I liked that one; left it on repeat for a bit.  Sounds like something that might play during the end-credits of a high-budget anime series.

I'm curious as to how you found it; the video has under 700 views, and the channel hasn't many subscribers.  Youtube's algorithm isn't very good at introducing me to new stuff.

Nu metal subreddit. It was posted awhile back there -- admittedly not that specific song (the song posted was Burn), but I got the album and I think Fenix was one of the best tracks on it.

Most of how I find new music is trawling Bandcamp, digging through small review sites and Wikipedia lists, and watching what people post when someone asks for "super obscure <genre> bands" in various music-focused communities.

I posted this band before, but I've been obsessively watching the vocalist's one-take videoed vocal rerecordings of their songs. This one is one of the two best for really showing how upsettingly good he is. The other is Red Light for more clean vocals and unusual techniques not often heard in music (including the most terrifying literal fucking Muppet voice ever for the last bridge). Also it's just funny watching him freak the fuck out and emote.

And yes, you can be pretty certain that even the most absurdly close-to-the-actual-original-version ones are actually being redone in these videos. The one for Placenta has him use a prop on a chain, and you get to hear the clinking of the chain. In We, The Sad, he smacks the shit out of his own face (like I said, there's a lot of reasons to watch this shit), and that's quite audible as well. And in any of the videos, the volume of his voice changes when he moves too far from the microphone, or when he switches to a louder vocal technique without backing up first. Seriously amazing.

And yeah, I had to actually clarify that, because a couple of the videos made me sincerely wonder if the audio wasn't pieced together from studio takes. It's upsetting.

Pretty sure I've posted this band before but they're so impressive to this day. It's a goddamn shame they split up after this 2006 (!!!!) EP. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2M5kyzw_QLg

Slam death metal, but with random post-hardcore and drunken bar punk stuff, mixed with an actual sense of humor and an impressive sense of rhythm and energy that is TOTALLY MISSING in most brutal death metal. There's a 7:25 IDM track. It's amazingly good (if simplistic) even by IDM standards, and especially impressive for an experimental brutal death metal band to do something that good. Despite being goofy trope-laden slam death at its core, there are many genuinely emotional moments  -- Morals Like Frozen Piss and Extensive Autumn Necrony are great examples of left-field feels passages in otherwise solid groovy slam death full of ridiculous goofy bullshit -- just. fuck. So good.

If you are REMOTELY open to brutal death metal you should try this band's EP, in full, front to back.

If you like my nu metal bullshit and wonder what it would sound like with open Green Day worship, listen to this.

If you think late 90s popular heavy music sucked and the above sounds like a recipe for the shittiest music ever, also listen to this. I'm not big on pop punk or the particular breed of nu metal this is drawing on (Papa Roach/Linkin Park style) and I /still/ fuckin love this shit. The band's just plain good enough to make it all work brilliantly.

This has been my background soundtrack for much of this last year.  Probably not that interesting to anyone else, but it's helping keep me sane functional truckin' on regardless.
