Drowning Pool is an Extreme Alternative Band hailing from Dallas Texas. Usually seen as a Nu-Metal band, Drowning Pool has characteristics of Dallas Hard Rock, and Heavy Metal combined, along with Vocal Metal slapped in there.
Drowning Pools debut album made them on top fast going platinum withing two weeks of its release. This showed people that Drowning Pool was the future of the metal music, just as KoRn brought in a new style, so did Drowning Pool along with other bands.

Drowning Pool, along with Disturbed, Slipknot, Godsmack, Ill Nino, Sevendust, Fing3r 3leven and a few more, were all new generation bands. Throughout the 90's, heavy metal was weaker than it had used to be. Though there were still powerful bands like KoRn and Ozzy Osbourne, there was a lot of Grunge and AlternativeRock going around. When the New Century hit, this group of "Crusaders" came out as real heavy metal and shook the music world, bringing metal back up.....temporarily.

At Ozzfest 2002, right after Covering Metallica's "Creeping Death", Drowning Pool Frontman was found dead on there tour bus, sadly had died of undiagnosed heart disiese. The whole music world was utterly shocked seeing as one of the most promising bands of the new century was now dead. Many of the bands that came out along with Drowning Pool were not all well either. With Drowning Pool as the 'leaders' of this new group of bands, them being out messed with the fans. many albums from those such as Ill Nino and Sevendust weren't being bought as much.

Now, bands like Disturbed and Slipknot have done exceptionally well and have made all of there albums platinum or more. Other bands like Ill Nino and Sevendust, and Fing3r 3leven are making there way back up and now have some hits out.

To sum it all up, Drowning Pool was a breakthrough band, and it was very sad that they could not have produced more with Dave Williams, but the metal community will always remember him....

Get a drowning pool mug for your guy José.
One of the three most acclaimed nu metal bands out there (the big three being Slipknot, Mudvayne, and Drowning Pool). The more die hard fans will swear up and down that it is straight metal, but let's get real people.
Drowning Pool is the Nirvana of the nu metal scene.

Formerly the greatest nu-metal band in the world, until Dave died. They're the closest to black and death metal Nu-metal will EVER get.
