Long before Korn and Linkin Park, there was Godflesh. Godflesh were pioneers of their time, not afraid to buck the at-that-time tradition of being a "Death Metal" band with a drummer. They used a drum machine, and overtly promoted this fact. tracks like "Spite" and "Pure" were the forerunners for today's rash of "nu metal" crossover style, with crunching heavy guitars over hip-hop inspired beats. This is a must hear for anyone wishing to know where the innovation for modern crossover rock/rap began.
