According to producer Ross Robinson (sort of the godfather of nu-metal), Coal Chamber's debut was the second nu-metal album, after Korn. And while that chronology may be off a little bit, there's no doubt Coal Chamber were among the earliest purveyors of the sound in its purest form. This is siplistic, highly repetitive music, as though it were made by a bunch of meth freaks (which is more or less what they were at the time). Similar to but darker and heavier thanKorn's firts album, with lyrics that are all but incoherent whether you're listening or reading, but at least they don't appear to be about "my stepmmom was mean to me!" Production is weird and claustrophobic, like it was recorded in a very small, very hot room. Dez does the whole mutter-to-a-scream vocal thing, but less weepy and more sinister than Jonathan Davis. It's not a terrible disc, unless you just unequivocally hate nu-metal, but it's very much a product of the time. At least it sounded more like metal than Collective

... Soul or Tonic, and in '97, that definitely counted for something.
