Groove metal was most popular in the early nineties, after which it got replaced by NuMetal, which itself occasinally took influences from Groove Metal (some bands more than others). Several Groove Metal bands have extensive {{Metalcore}} elements, a couple examples being LambOfGod and Shadows Fall. Groove Metal also tends to take elements from DeathMetal

'''Do not''' confuse the genre with FunkMetal, which is a sub-genre of AlternativeMetal that focuses on bass playing and rhythm. The two genres, however, occasionally overlap, such as in the case of Soulfly. Due to its roots in ThrashMetal, groove metal is occasionally referred to as Post-Thrash.

Post-Thrash. Also see {{Djent}}, a polyrythmic offshoot of groove metal.



* Music/{{Meshuggah}} (also considered {{Djent}})



Djent - a subgenre of groove metal characterized by heavy syncopated riffs, polyrythmic drumming and irregular time signatures which became popular in the early 2010s. Essentially, a cross between ProgressiveMetal and GrooveMetal.

* Music/AfterTheBurial
* Music/AnimalsAsLeaders
* Music/BornofOsiris (Also {{Deathcore}} and [[TechnicalDeathMetal Progressive Death Metal]])
* Music/{{Deadlock}} (On ''The Arsonist'', previous material was MelodicDeathMetal.)
* Music/{{Deftones}} (co-TropeCodifier, also from ''White Pony'' onwards, have slowly gravitated towards the style. [[note]]Justified by the fact that the band, especially lead guitarist Stephen Carpenter, openly worships Meshuggah.[[/note]])
* Music/{{Erra}} (Also has some strong {{Metalcore}} influences)
* Music/{{Hacktivist}} (mixed with [[HipHop grime]])
* Music/{{Meshuggah}} (UrExample, TropeMaker, and TropeNamer)

* Music/ThreatSignal (Also MelodicDeathMetal)
* Music/VeilOfMaya (also {{Deathcore}})
* Music/{{Vildhjarta}}

** Djent bands are stereotyped as always using eight-string guitars, largely due to the influence of Meshuggah. In reality, most bands in the genre use downtuned seven strings.



* IAmTheBand: In djent, a lot of "bands" in the genre are really just one guy who can play guitar and bass using programmed drums. The genre has become rather notorious for that.
* InternetBackdraft[=/=]FlameBait: Go onto any metal forum, ask if Djent is a genre and see what happens.



** The codifiers for djent are, djenerally, considered to be {{Music/Periphery}} and Music/AnimalsAsLeaders.



** For djent, Meshuggah.
* UrExample - Pantera's ''Cowboys from Hell'' for groove metal in general. Meshuggah and Nevermore are this for djent.
