The rap-rock/nu-metal sound was a big thing in the late ’90s, but it died out after a few years thanks to everyone and their momma trying to rap over guitar riffs. But it’s 2016 and as you know, things are cyclical and come back like it’s brand new.
Enter Band Nerds.
A handful of brothas from Dallas, Texas spitting real raps over heavy metal riffs so bangin’ that makes it tough sit still. Seriously, these cats are killin’ it. They’ve already released an 8-song EP late last year called Clarity EP (listen to it here, it’s fire!!), followed by the head busting track, “Respect 2016.” Check out their most recent track, “Deep Ellum,” below and get your headbanging on.
